About Michael & Karen Fedash
My wife and I grew up in the North East part of Pennsylvania. After spending a few years in the Washington DC area during my wife's graduate schooling, we decided to relocate closer to where we grew up and chose Hershey, PA as our place to call home. We have 1 son and 1 daughter, both under age 4. We enjoy spending time at the chalet, boating, relaxing, and spending time with our children and family.
Michael & Karen Fedash purchased this House in 2014
Why Michael & Karen Fedash chose Huntingdon
PRIVACY, SIZE, PROXIMITY AND HIGH END!!!! After the Chocolate Moose Chalet became a resounding success over the last 3 years and we have been unable to keep up with demand, we decided to buy a large tract of land and begin building more properties. The Sugar Maple Chalet is the first property within our new tract of land that we plan on continuing to build a few more homes on to fulfill demand for our properties.
What makes this House unique
53 Private Acres! The home boasts SPRAWLING size (3700 sq foot) privacy, a 1200 sq foot wrap around covered porch, along with a fire pit, and spaciousness everywhere you turn. As you sit on the porch in the evenings, with the lights turned down low on the porch, it doesn't get much better than seeing the lightning bugs flash in the woods while enjoying a glass of wine with good conversation between family and friends.

This house was beautiful. There were plenty of places for our guests to sleep & play, and the workmanship inside of the house was gorgeous.
The stink bugs were unreal. We were flushing or vacuuming a minimum of 30/hour. Especially the first 24 hours we were at the house, it took away from some of the games & entertaining we were doing because guests were flinching at stink bugs falling in their drinks and appearing on their shoulders. It would have been ideal if these were at least swept up before our arrival. I completely understand that these bugs are unavoidable in this area, but I think proactivity would've helped the situation.
Additionally, the hill to get up to the cabin was a bit rough as it is all stone - this is something to be aware of, especially depending on the time of year.
Overall, it was a great house with a beautiful interior and nice set-up for large groups.
Sorry for the stink bugs. The unfortunate nature of these things is that no pesticide helps as they are immune to all at this point. Being in the woods has compounded the effect. They are not seeking heat in the warmer months so it does go away but yes we can and will ensure their removal immediately before stay as well.
Family Winter Vacation
Great property, we (my extended family of 16) wanted for nothing. Plenty of room for all of us to relax within the house even though it was frigid outdoors. Owner is very attentive and prompt, will not hesitate to rent from him again, perhaps in the warmer months.
A beautiful secluded cabin!! We loved every min of our stay:) Very spacious, built to perfection. As soon as you enter the home, you're in amazement. The wood, the beautiful kitchen countertops, everything from the windows to the floor is unbelievably amazing. The functions of modern technology, in a very cozy cabin feel. We loved how you could sit upstairs and completely, forget how big the cabin truly is. An experience one would have to live for themself. Loved the old cabin decor which will transform you into a whole new era!! The balacony was breathtaking, the views, sounds, very peaceful, very graceful!!! We would highly recommend this cabin to anyone who is interested:) Dont let this pass you by, an Amazing experience, memories for years to come!! The owners are very helpful and very quick to respond to anything you may need. Thank you for letting us enjoy a great vacation, in your lovely home:)
We were a large family (4 generations!) that stayed at this home, and it was perfect! The house was comfortable, clean, and accommodated everyone. The owners were extremely responsive and helpful. We had a wonderful time and will keep in mind for our future getaways.
Don't hesitate !
This is the second time our biking group has stayed at one of the Chalet's and we absolutely love it. This was the first time we stayed at sugar maple and loved the seclusion of the home which is just minutes from the trail heads via car. We had a total of 10 this year and everyone was comfortable. We could easily have had more join us. The house is very well appointed from comfortable furnishing to kitchen supplies. Thoughtful instructions are also included throughout. There is plenty of outdoor seating at the firepit, covered seating on the deck and indoor seating as well.
Clean-up & maintenance is a breeze. The water pressure is excellent and can support easily two showers at one time (if not more). This may not seem important however other properties we've rented in the area are lucky to support one shower at a time and with a large group of dirty mountain bikers....
I highly recommend renting here, we certainly will do so again in the future.
The owner is extremely responsive, consistently responding within minutes of emailing.
This is a beautiful property. Meticulously maintained and with all the comforts of home .
We had a large family there to celebrate my youngest son's graduation from Penn State. We were all very pleased with the home! Beds are all really comfortable. We loved the privacy of the property -but it is close to lots of fun places to explore. Really hope to return someday soon!
The property sits on 53 private wooded acres just acquired in the late summer of 2014. The home is approximately 6 to 7 minutes from 7 Points Marina and 7 minutes to downtown Huntingdon for shopping, supplies, etc. A perfect combination of privacy, location, seclusion, and access to the popular spots of Raystown Lakes region such as the Alagrippis biking trails, 7 Points Marina, downtown Huntingdon, etc. There is a laundry list of things to do in this area and the owners look forward to helping you plan your getaway. Boating, Hunting, Hiking, Mountain Biking, Swimming, Tubing, Fishing, etc. Tons of activities!
