Wildwood Lodge owners, Pam & Bob Wild, have been in the vacation home rental business since 2005. They purchased the Lodge in Dec. 2012 and spent 3 months renovating the home. The Lodge is their 3rd vacation rental property, all of which are within walking distance of each other. All homes, Wildwood Chalet, Cottage and Lodge are rustically beautiful and immaculately clean. (

The Lodge is nestled in a 3 acre wooded lot, offering a peaceful retreat yet 10 minutes from Raystown Lake and 5 minutes from Allegrippis Trails which is ranked among the top 5 trial systems in the nation for mountain biking. It's also awesome for hiking. We're only 10 minutes from downtown Huntingdon for dining & shopping.

This house offers it's own eclectic charm, furnished with Amish made hickory tables, chairs, rockers, pine log & hickory headboards, as well as lovely leather furniture. The new kitchen has maple cabinets and granite counter tops. A beautiful knotty pine cathedral ceiling covers the entire great room. The walls are adorned with rustic artwork and artifacts of days gone by.....sure to spark interest and conversation ! The kitchen is equipped with everything you could possibly need.

Wildwood Lodge features 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths, a great room with a dining area that includes a gorgeous hickory table, rec. room with rustic bar, large deck, patio off the rec room and cozy firepit area.

The Lodge provides all the creature comforts you could hope for, including expanded cable TV, free internet, free local/long distance phone service, gas grill, extra full size fridge in garage, movies and much more. For those families with small children don't take up space in your vehicles for a pack and play, baby gate and highchair, they will be provided. There will also be a plastic kiddie pool, nothing like a pool with a little water to keep toddlers occupied for hours.

The house can comfortably sleep 13 and perhaps a couple more for those who want to bring a cot or air mattress. Guests may bring their own sheets or they can be provided for an additional fee. Comforters, blankets and pillows are provided. Cleaning fee is included in the rental rate.

Wildwood Lodge will enable you to sit back, relax and enjoy the sounds of nature, moonlit evenings by the fire pit or fill your Summer days with fishing, boating, hiking and water activities on Raystown Lake, the Crown Jewel of Central Pa. Fall and Winter offers opportunities for hunting, downhill skiing, cross country skiing, and trips to 'Happy Valley' to enjoy Penn State Nittany Lion football.

Closed Jan. and February - may be available for last minute rentals pending weather and driveway conditions.

About Pam

Owners Pam and Bob Wild live in State College, Pa. but call the Raystown Lake area their home away from home.

The lake as been apart of Pam's life for 52 years. Her husband Bob is quite the boating enthusiast and fell in love with the lake as well. It is a wonderful place to create great memories with friends and family. Their two grown children and now 3 granddaughters also LOVE their time at the family cabin and lake.

The Wilds make a great team in that they work together to make sure the houses are well maintained and in top working order.

Pam was in the Hotel/Restaurant industry for 25 years prior to starting a vacation home rental business. She knows what it takes to make her guests happy. You will appreciate her friendly and PROMPT replies to all rental inquiries and questions.

Pam purchased this house in 2012

Why Pam chose Allegheny Mountains & Her Valleys

The Lodge is one of their three vacation rental properties, all of which are within walking distance of each other. All homes, Wildwood Chalet, Cottage and Lodge are rustically beautiful and immaculately clean.

The perfect place to fill your days with activities or better yet .... relax and do nothing at all ! We do not utilize the availability calendar because we have other properties. Sometimes we can direct guests to one of our other places, Wildwood Chalet or Cottage if the Lodge is booked.

Lodge is closed Jan. and Feb. it may be available for last minute reservations pending weather and condition of driveway. Our other two rentals, Wildwood Chalet and Cottage are OPEN YEAR ROUND !

What makes this house unique

Pam and Bob spend a great deal of time at their personal cottage which is close to their rentals. Their daughter and family live only a few minutes away as well. There is always someone available should guests have a problem or need assistance.

The Wildwood Lodge is the ideal setting for a rustic getaway. Beautiful home in the woods, isolated and private. The Lodge is very well equipped from the kitchen to the outdoor firepit. Its close proximity to the Allegrippis trail system at Raystown Lake, State College and Boalsburg shopping and downtown Huntingdon make it a wonderful vacation spot. Our group has experienced all the Wildwood properties and by far the Lodge is our favorite. The owners go out of their way to make your stay the best experience. Do yourself a favor and rent this property!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The Lodge is beautiful, cozy, relaxing... Our group of Juniata football parents expanded, so we needed more room than we previously had at the Wildwood cottage (which is also very nice). The Lodge had everything we could possibly need for a fun weekend. The large table accommodated our sons for a pre-game dinner, and we all had plenty of room to relax. The extra refrigerators in the garage were a great help to store our tailgating supplies. The Wild's went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable & comfortable. We would love to come back again! Thank you.

Beautiful setting for a Penn State Graduation/Family party!

  • 5 of 5

LOVED the Wildwood lodge. The furnishings and décor are so on point without being stuffy. It was a great location and base camp for our graduation weekend. My father is in a wheel chair and we found it very easy to accommodate his needs. Kitchen is well appointed and the gas grill made for a terrific cook out. Having two refrigerators and a garage for staging was ideal. Covered outdoor decks were fantastic for additional space - game changer in the rain! The whole family loved it. We will be back!

We totally enjoyed our stay at the Lodge! What an amazing place to stay and Pam is an outstanding and very accommodating and personable host!!! The lodge is BEAUTIFUL ... even better than the photos and there was plenty of room for our party of 11! We are hoping to return and next time rent Pam's other two properties as well so we can bring more family and friends! Thanks SO much Pam! We had a wonderful (although too short) stay at the Lodge!!!

Wonderful private hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay! Great memories relaxing on the porches...listening to the bull frogs...enjoying the short drive to the lake and the beauty there!

The house was big enough for us all to have privacy when needed and enjoyed great family meals each night.

It was beautifully decorated and cozy! Well supplied!
