Welcome to the closest privately owned cabin to the water on the northern end of the lake. The rustic early 1800s American chestnut log cabin is located at the entrance to Snyder’s Run Boat Launch, so convenient to the water; our driveway entrance is in the boat launch parking area. Please note, Corp of Engineers owns all ground to the lake, we like to bring this to your attention, we do not own the property to the lake, nor do we advertise this cabin sits on the lake. This is not a maintained path, it is a well used path from continued use.
The cabin is located on 120 private acres bordering the Army Corp of Engineers Federal ground. You will enjoy the 1/2 mile dirt driveway to the cabin, with easy access for the guest to enjoy the peaceful drive following the inlet of Snyder’s Run Boat Launch.
What we offer at our cabin, is our rustic view of what a visit to Raystown should be. Enjoy the peaceful 2 minute walk to the water, leading to a peaceful inlet so convenient to swimming and fishing, or just floating around on a raft. Launch your boat at the launch down the hill, with no worry of finding a parking space, just park at the cabin, and walk to your boat. No boat, no problem, just walk down the hill to enjoy the lake. We also offer long term parking/storage for boats seasonal, both summer & winter.
Please note: No boat, jet ski, or kayak should be left unattended in cove below cabin.
Enjoy the walking trails we provide on our property, bordering the federal ground. With the 120 acres of private property, we have plenty of space to hike, ride your bike in the driveway, or just walk down to the launch and enjoy the view.
Directions: GPS to Snyder Run Boat Launch - boat launch is at the very end of Snyders Run Road. Enter into Snyder's Run Boat Launch parking area. Make right onto Valentine Lane (the driveway is in the parking lot of the boat launch) continue on Valentine Lane till you see fork in road. Continue straight, sign will say Lake View Trails. At next fork in the road continue left, and cabin is directly in front of you. Driveway is well marked.
Before making a payment, always call the owner at the number listed on our website to make sure your payment instructions are accurate.

About the owner: Both owners were raised in the area of Huntingdon and Lake Raystown. Both our families grew up with cottages/cabins on the old Raystown learning to fish, swim & ski. Local ties to the area, not a visitor that decided to come into Raystown area, buy and rent a seasonal home.
Why the Owner Chose Huntingdon, PA, USA:
Location is the key factor while visiting Raystown Lake. Our location is at the lake, our driveway is located in the parking lot of Snyder's Run Launch. Private entrance to the cabin with a view to enjoy. Unique larger parcel of property bordering federal ground on three sides.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Closest privately owned cabin to the water! Owners have extensive knowledge about the lake and the area of Raystown Lake. Year round lake view, easy access to launch the boat with plenty of parking for boat trailers. No boat, bring the tubes and fishing poles and walk down the hill to the lake. Please note: No boat to be left at anytime unattended in the cove below the cabin. Located 4 miles to downtown Huntingdon, 5 miles to Wal-Mart.
