Treasure lake is a private community of 9000 acres of wooded land, with three private lakes, two championship golf courses, lots of fishing, stocked lake for kids, and playground areas. The Ski Lodge and other restaurants are located within the community, with nightly activities. The marina which is very close to the house, has non-motorized boat rentals and much more. Treasure Lake Country Club overlooks the Lake and Marina, is very close and has great dining. There are plenty of activities to enjoy!

Other Forests and Parks include: Allegheny National Forest, Elk State Forest, Quehanna Wild Area, and Bucktail State Park.

About Steve

Owner grew up near the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland, moved to Westminster, MD after getting married, and now lives in southern PA with his wonderful family (wife and 2 children). Owner attended college in Philadelphia, PA and my wife attended the University of MD. We also own a cabin in Berkeley Springs, WV (vrbo # 183937) and have been renting that out for quite some time. So PLEASE check us out there as well as our GREAT reviews, as we get our new vacation rental endeavor up and running here at Treasure Lake!

Steve purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Steve chose Pennsylvania Wilds

Treasure Lake is a private community in a serene, slower paced setting with paved roads and with beautiful lake front properties and views. Traveling to the Treasure Lake/Dubois area from any direction is VERY scenic and is typically a breeze, away from the fast paced hustle and bustle of the city and all the other stressful "work" environments. Why deal with the heavy beach traffic where everyone else goes, when you can enjoy the same amenities, just in a much more peaceful setting?

What makes this cottage unique

We have a "one of a kind" view from our property with great, level, walk out lake access. Views of Treasure Lake from the living room, dining room, front porch area, lower level rec room, as well as the lower covered patio area will seem to sweep all your worries away. Our property is unique in that many properties that are lakefront in the community, are either on a steep slope, or have limited views, where ours is the opposite. We have hopefully thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable, from the pool/ping-pong table, upgraded bathrooms, flat screen TVs, books, videos and DVDs, even down to the fully stocked kitchen where you will be more than happy to prepare any of your favorite meals.

"What a wonderful vacation Steve...the home was large enough to accommodate the eight of us and morning view on the deck was beautiful. Our family enjoyed outside activities on the spacious yard. We never left the property until it was time to go home! Thank-you! Connie"

Amazing Views

Great open area inside and out on the deck, for the family to gather, eat and hang out.

We enjoyed our stay and may rent it for a week in the summer.

A great place to celebrate the holidays with your family!

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to bring our family together to celebrate Thanksgiving day in this awesome house. The Lake Cottage was very spacious and comfortable for all eight of us. The yard was big enough for a mean game of football! Thanks to Steve for being so responsive to our emails even when he was celebrating the holiday with his family.
