About Pam

Wildwood Cottage owners, Pam & Bob Wild, have been in the vacation home rental business since 2005. The Wilds 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. 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.

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 purchased this house in 2005

Why Pam chose Allegheny Mountains & Her Valleys

The Cottage 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.

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

For those mountain bike enthusiasts, our rentals are only 5 minutes from the Allegrippis Trails, ranked among the top in the NATION.

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 a problem arise.

Wonderful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at all 3 of the Wildwood Rentals. The cottage was our first experience in Feb. We wanted to get away for a peaceful weekend however, we were reluctant because we were afraid if there was a snow storm we wouldn't be able to go and would lose our money. The owner, Pam, assured us she has a liberal Winter cancellation policy. In the event of nasty weather prohibiting safe travel she gives a full refund or moves the reservation to another date, guests' choice. Since we had nothing to lose we went and so glad we did. The Cottage has a awesome rustic charm, very clean and close to downtown Huntingdon so buying groceries was easy. Our family enjoyed getting away from the rat race. We played games, watched movies, took long walks and even made a fire in the outdoor pits and roasted marshmallows. There was a little bit of new fallen snow so the setting was absolutely gorgeous. We enjoyed ourselves so much we tried Wildwood Chalet early Summer. Our group grew in size and we then reserved the Lodge later in the is gorgeous. All 3 rentals are within walking distance of each other so we're hoping to book a couple houses next Summer. We had a minor maintenance issue with one of the toilets and Pam's husband was there within the hour to fix it. Working with Pam was awesome. She was extremely responsive and had wonderful suggestions for things to do. Her guest information book is very organized, including general info about the house, directions to anything guests might need and a list of her favorite things to do. We can't wait to go back. Our biggest dilemma will be.....which of these wonderful rentals will we choose....Wildwood Chalet, Cottage or Lodge. We highly recommend WIldwood Rentals and the Raystown Lake area.... we heard Raystown is the crown jewel of Central Pa. and it truly is.

Nice place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Wildwood cottage is a very accommodaing and cozy cabin. Lots to do in the area and if you want quiet you will have it and so wonderfully relaxing. If it's raining there are plenty of things to do inside too, videos, games and TV too. I so enjoy my visits to the Wildwoods chalet, cottage and lodge. I have now been going there for 10 years and hope to keep going as long as I'm able.

This was my first stay at the Cottage. We had a group of 10 friends arrive for New Year's Eve and this getaway was our best yet for the holiday. We couldn't have asked for more accommodating hosts or a cozier cabin. Its central location gave plenty of options for entertainment and traveling. Highly recommended.

Nicely stocked cabin - great for weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is our first time staying at the cottage, and we enjoyed ourselves greatly. We celebrated my husband and daughter's birthday and it met all our needs. There were 8 of us plus two babies and we felt like we had enough room. Kitchen was nicely stocked, and cabin got plenty warm enough.
