About the Property

4 Bedroom, 2.5 bath home with historic charm

Located within a five minute walk to a quiet cove on pristine Raystown Lake, this authentic log home is perfect for a family gathering.

Very close to Juniata River access point and Ridenour Overlook at the northern end of Raystown Lake, this 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath rental sleeps 9 guests comfortably and has great outdoor space for entertaining. There is plenty of room for parking, bring your boat, RV and trailer if you'd like.

The home is an historic hand hewn log cabin, originally built in the 1740's. It was renovated with a family in mind and now has a modern updated interior with an authentic rustic ambience. The open kitchen and ample storage space is lovely for accommodating large groups.

The home includes a living room and a finished basement space, known as the cozy room, that opens onto the front patio. The front porch is partially covered & set up for a barbecue. Gas grill included.

*Wheel chair accessible to first floor & basement only.

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.
