About the property

Cabin, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 13)

We invite you to relax and rejuvenate at Mountaintop Lake View.

Enjoy one of the best views of Raystown Lake and the surrounding mountains from high atop Terrace Mountain with unique year round views of the lake. During the months when leaves have fallen you can experience panoramic views of the lake. This cabin is a quality log home on 3.2 private wooded acres. Relax on the covered front porch or take in the incredible view of the lake from the spacious deck. You will enjoy sipping your morning coffee on the deck overlooking the lake. Mountaintop Lake View is a perfect hideaway for those looking for rest, relaxation and privacy.

Our log cabin sleeps 13 comfortably and 1 toddler. It offers 4 queen beds, 1 double bed and 3 twin beds (plus there is a toddler bed in one of the bedrooms on the loft). In the lower level there are two bedrooms; one with a queen bed and one with a queen bed and two single beds. There are two bedrooms on the loft; one includes a queen size bed with a small toddler bed and the other bedroom consists of a full size bed with a twin bed. On the main floor the cabin offers a great room with cathedral ceiling, dining area, kitchen, master bedroom with a queen bed, and a full bathroom.

The surrounding area has plenty for you to do: hiking, fishing, swimming, boating, kayaking, hunting, shopping, movies and bowling.

About Beth Chakara

After visiting a home in the area owned by our friends we became fond of Raystown Lake and the scenery and decided to purchase a getaway cabin of our own.

Beth Chakara purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Beth Chakara chose Huntingdon

We chose this property because it is within a few hours drive from our home. Immediately when we visited this particular cabin and after seeing the lake view we knew this was the cabin for us! It was a view to remember!

What makes this cabin unique

Situated on a mountaintop in the woods with a lake view, this cabin is a perfect hideaway. When the door opens be prepared to relax and unwind. It's all yours to enjoy when you stay at Mountaintop Lake View.


Close to historic downtown Huntingdon; 20-minute drive to Raystown Resort and Boat Launches; 30-minute drive to Seven Points Marina; 35 miles to State College, Juniata College within a 15-minute drive. Close proximity to hiking/walking trails. From our development Trough Creek State Park is only a 15-minute drive on John Baum (gravel) Road or through the quaint town of Cassville.

Fantastic Views with all the comforts you could want

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the Raystown Lake area for our family.The Mountain top view sold me on this property and the cabin was first rate with plenty of room for our family of 11.The cabin was clean and comfortable and all appliances and fixtures looked almost new.We loved the back country feel with quite seclusion.The stars at night were as bright as I have ever seen.we actually caught a view of the ISS as it flew overhead!

There were plenty of stores in Huntingdon which was about a 20 minute drive.Raystown Lake was great,we rented a pontoon boat for a day and explored the Lake which is so large you never felt crowded.

We also visited the County Fair and the Isett acres Heritage museum which had every collectible imaginable.

The owners were very cooperative and easy to deal with.

Minor issues were a lack of a dishwasher and an additional a/c in the lower level which would be helpful during the hottest weeks of the summer.

Based on our experience you cant go wrong staying at this property.We enjoyed it and I'm sure you will too!

Lauding Luxury Lake Living and Luminous Landscapes

  • 5 of 5

While we have vacationed at Raystown Lake numerous times, this was by far the most beautiful "cabin" we've stayed in. The accommodations were luxurious and the view of the lake from the deck was really unmatched by any other vacation rental property in the area. Given that the government owns virtually all lake frontage at Raystown, this vantage point puts this vacation home in a class by itself. There are multiple private acres to roam and it's a short drive to all lake activities. Lastly, the owners were easy to work with.
