About the property

4 Bedroom 3.5 Bath sleeps 12+

Built in 2010 on a 1.5 acre wooded lot conveniently located within 2 miles to Tatman Run boat launch / recreation area, Trough Creek State park and Raystown Resort. Perfect for multifamily or couples gathering with 3 levels, each with bedroom and full bath for privacy. Main level has open kitchen / dining / living room area that opens to partially covered deck that makes nice gathering area. Lower level rec room with ping pong table opens up to covered patio. 2 big screen TV's with HD Direct TV and many VCR and DVD movies. Gas fireplace in rec room and wood burning stove in living room for cozy gathering on chilly nights. Kitchen is fully stocked. Large sized weber gas grill with propane provided. Enjoy a night making 'smores by the fire pit.

Private wooded development to get away from it all, but many conveniences nearby. Local seasonal camp stores within 2 miles. Grocery store 7 miles away in town of Saxton. Many walking trails directly from house with breathtaking views of lake and mountains. Only 20 miles from Historic town of Huntingdon for all your shopping needs. Tatman Run recreation area is 2 miles away with boat launch, beach, playground and picnic area. Less than 1 hour to State College, Blue Knob Ski Area, Altoona or Bedford. Raystown Lake is the centerpiece attraction of the area but there are so many hiking areas, mountain biking trails, museums, amusement parks, historic sites, etc that you will run out of time before you can rerrsrun out things to do.

Guests need to bring their own linens and towels. We recommend 4wd vehicles in winter due to rural mountain roads ands sloped private drive. R

Great location, beautiful clean home

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our long Thanksgiving weekend with the family together in a home that was well furnished, clean and just a great place to enjoy some quiet time. Not having cell phone reception was great with no phone calls or text messages. We really enjoyed the fire pit as it has become a tradition for the family to cook out over an open fire for several of the meals, the grounds had plenty of down limbs and wood around to enjoy the outdoor fire cooking. The house was clean and very comfortable, plenty of room to be on different levels throughout the day and all the bedrooms were comfortable. The only thing that was slightly lacking was seating around the table, the table inside is large and even can be extended but unless you bring chairs in from the outside they only have 6 chairs for the main table. Also we were expecting more plates as we don't like to use paper products so it just was more washing. All in all a great location, a clean comfortable house that can be enjoyed both inside and out.

This home was absolutely fantastic!! We had eight people in our party and the home more than enough space for all. The location was great and the home was stocked with everything you needed. Charlie was great to work with and everyone agreed we will be back next year!! Thanks again Charlie for letting us rent your home. We all had a blast!!!

Lovely home with everything we could have needed.

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for a week in September. What a beautiful time to be at Raystown! We enjoyed the Trough Creek State Park and Tatman Run Recreation Area while we were there. Both were only a few miles from the house.

The home overall was amazing. Four bedrooms, at least one on every floor, so that each part of the family could have their space. We had time together but also had some alone time if it was needed. The back porch was our favorite place. We enjoyed staying up late talking and having our morning coffee there.

The children, between the ages of seven and one, could all find things to stay busy with. We enjoyed the games and movies found at the house. The even had a scavenger hunt in the woods behind the home.

This was a spectacular home, full of amenities and cleanliness. We will definitely be staying here again next year!

The house was beautiful, clean and at a great location to the lake!

  • 5 of 5

I was expecting to have a little more room in regards to neighbors but it never hindered our experience! We spent a lot of time on the back deck where we had plenty of space to sit and relax! The rest of the house provided ample enough space to sleep, cook, play and relax! We would love to come back again to stay!
