About the Property
3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom on private lane, sleeps maximum 8 adults
Located at the heart of Raystown Lake, Mid Lake Lodge is a 7-acre, hilltop hideaway nestled within federal woodlands surrounding pristine waters. Our comfortable and inviting lodge provides privacy and relaxation. Roast marshmallows over a campfire under a starlit sky as you count the shooting stars. Find out why it’s called the Milky Way! Keep your eyes fixed to the big skies overhead during the day because our local bald eagles like to pass over as they fish lake waters.
While our location offers seclusion, there are endless opportunities for fun and adventure within a 5-mile radius in any season. Whether you are a family group, fishermen, or hunters, our lodge will provide you with a memorable experience. Enjoy easy access to the lake from any one of three nearby boat launches as close as 1.5 miles away. Take advantage of several local amenities including a public access swimming location, miniature golf, a water park, boat tours and rentals, fishing guides, and a water view restaurant to name a few. Find pleasure at several picnicking locations, hiking trails, and geocaching opportunities. During the fall and winter seasons, our lodge is in an ideal location for hunting, cross-country skiing, and watching eagles fish from the ice. Make Mid Lake Lodge your hub for exploring the woodlands, shorelines, and wildlife of the beautiful Raystown Lake area!

About: This property was built by the Hammers family in 1976 and is still owned by the family's LLC. Ed and Viv, both World War II veterans, were the original occupants of the property. Ed passed in June of 77' leaving the cabin to Viv. When Viv moved in with her daughter to be closer to town, their youngest son Joe remained in the house. When Joe lost his battle to Brain Cancer in February of 2011, the remaining siblings did not want to sell the property. The 5 siblings started ELVPJM, LLC. and continue to upkeep the cabin so others can enjoy the beauty of the surrounding nature and a cabin built with love. *Rentals are managed by family friend Judith Reed of Lake View Trails Inc.
