About the property

6 Bedroom, 4.5 Bath Cabin Style Luxury Lodge With Modern Amenities

Our home was built in 2008 and purchased by my family in 2015. We have spent a great deal of time here to get to know the area. Additionally, we are dedicated to adding improvements each year so it is guaranteed to get even better!

This home is strategically placed high up on the mountain overlooking Lake Raystown Resort just around the corner of Shy Beaver Boat Launch/Inlet. It includes 67 acres to enjoy with a 2 acre lawn for family games/activities. Whether enjoying the fire pit or hot tub overlooking the lake, or custom horseshoe pits, or just simply bird/game watching, our property will provide plenty of opportunities for recreation.

An incredible view of the Lake is visible from nearly the entire house, firepit area, and hot tub. The property boasts one of the few usable lawns at nearly 2 acres level ground that would be perfect for medium-sized events/ photos etc. From the property there is direct access to walking/running/mountain biking/hiking trails without leaving the grounds.

We are conveniently located about a mile from the nearest boat launch. Arrangements for storage can be made if bringing a boat. Rentals are available at Lake Raystown Resort just a few minutes away.

Special accommodations, kitchen items, child needs, and furniture can be arranged by letting the owners know.

Renter must be 26 years old to book. Maximum number of occupants is 20 unless special arrangements are made.

Linens and towels are included for your convenience! No need to pack such bulky items for travel.

About Mike Gentry

The owners, Mike and Brandi, have three young children. We love boating, hiking, fishing, kayaking, and riding our side-by-side UTV on our property. We absolutely love it here!

Mike Gentry purchased this lodge in 2015

Why Mike Gentry chose Pennsylvania

I grew up in the local area and have visited Raystown Lake my whole life. I know the Lake area very well and in recent years learned of the exclusive homes available with lakeviews on the bluff next to Shy Beaver; we began our search here. Our search ended when we found the Eagle Mountain Lodge. What a wonderful and peaceful place!

What makes this lodge unique

From the property is an unparalleled view with plenty of space to roam. Bedrooms are spacious so sleeping arrangements aren't cramped.

This is a fantastic home. Quiet, well stocked, comfortable and plenty of accoutrements. Bring all your meals cause you won't want to leave. We were a group looking to replace a whitewater trip that got washed out and this was perfect

Fantastic home with excellent views and helpful owners!

  • 5 of 5

The home is every bit as beautiful as the pictures. We found new details and treasures around the property each day. I found myself torn between fun with friends and simply sitting down to soak up the view. It's a great convenience to have 2 refrigerators. It gives you enough room to feed the army this place can fit. The house was conveniently located for day trip's and lake fun. Our party often drifted to the large, flat front yard that gave us room for every yard game you could dream of.

The owners were very pleasant to deal with and provided more than enough information to make check in and check out easy. This is the third property I've rented from HomeAway and by far the best experience. Thank you Eagle Mountain Lodge. :-)

The home was amazing and had everything you'd need especially in the kitchen and outdoor games/activities. The view was

spectacular and could be enjoyed from inside the house, deck, patio, fire pit, and hot tub. Owners were easily available via text for any questions we had. Highly recommended.

Great birthday weekend venue

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated a 30th birthday in Mike's gorgeous lake house with 18 of our friends and it could not have been better. We miss it already! The lake house was stunning and fit everyone comfortably. We took advantage of the fantastic hot tub, yard games, grill, and fire pit. Even with a bit of bad weather we were able to relax and enjoy the home and the gorgeous view! When we ran into a snag with WiFi Mike was quick to help, and even one of the neighbors came by to help us out. We absolutely loved our stay at Eagle Mountain Lodge and would love to return someday again.

Absolutely beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed at Eagle View for the weekend to celebrate my 40th. The house was amazing! The views from the main areas of the house are breath taking. The home was very clean, comfortable and completely stocked with everything we needed for our stay. All we needed to supply was the food, drinks and fun. We all loved our weekend away and hope to stay again when the weather is a bit warmer. I'd highly recommend this home if you want to get away and relax.

Eagle Mountain Lodge

  • 5 of 5

My bible study group of 20 ladies spent a heavenly weekend at Eagle Mountain Lodge and we all had a great time. The house is absolutely gorgeous, our get together studies were done in the room with the magnificent view of the hills and lake that was breathtaking. The hot tub was enjoyed by many and in our break time many of us took to some of the trails for a nature walk. while many just sat on the deck and enjoyed the view. The best part the house was it is very clean and is fully equipped with whatever is needed! The owner was extremely responsive and supplied us with all of our requests. We enjoyed it so much we are planning our next retreat there in the very near future.
