This home is located at the northern end of the lake very close to the Army Corps' dam. You are just moments away from Ridenour Overlook, a spectacular viewing area of the lake that also offers some walking trails. A local secret, the best swimming cove around Huntingdon, known as Henderson Hollow, is a short walk down the road from your front door! If you'd prefer river fun, like floating or kayaking, a boat launch at Corbin's Island is located just below the dam's spillway & just minutes from the house too. You can also stay right at home here and enjoy the relaxation and charm of an old farmstead. The property is charming with a 1/2 acre pond & bank barn. The front porch is made for sitting & the fire pit out back goes over delightfully in the evening.
If the great outdoors isn't your thing, home is also located a short drive to downtown Huntingdon, PA. A historic movie theater, The Clifton 5, has daily showings. Juniata College has some great events & a museum on campus. Any history buff would love the historical society & McMurtrie house that nows functions as the county library. 4th street is an up & coming arts district for the small town with several galleries and a wellness center. There are also options for local dining, all your shopping needs, banks, and the hospital, JC Blair.
