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.

Beautiful Log Cabin Overlooking Raystown Lake
average rating of 5.0 based on 3 reviews

Highly recommended by our family of 14!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our third fall vacation at this cabin this year, and enjoyed it so much. The cabin was clean and well-stocked, and we had no complaints. Part of our family lives in Pittsburgh, and some, in Lancaster County, so the Raystown Lake area is right in the middle.

The children enjoy playing in the woods, hiking, and roasting marshmallows at the campfire. And we hope to go to this cabin again next year!

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.

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.
