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 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 gathering on chilly nights. Kitchen is fully stocked. Large sized weber gas grill with propane provided. Enjoy a night making 'smores or a cold drink 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 run 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.

About Charles Cuaz

We built this house with the design in mind for gathering with family and friends. We have been blessed with a lot of enjoyment sharing our house with great guests who are looking for the same type of getaway.

Our guests have come to celebrate children's birthdays, 30th birthdays, 60th birthdays and 80th birthdays. We have had groups stay for weddings at nearby Raystown Resort along with anniversaries, bachelor / bachelorette weekends. We've had a couple get engaged during a stay and another couple spend their honeymoon week. The wives of servicemen of Afghanistan war from Ohio and NJ setup a weekend to meet each others families. Holiday gatherings for both local families needing a bigger house or families traveling. Or just families looking to for a weekend getaway. We especially enjoy our repeat guests and referrals

Great house for a weekend

  • 5 of 5

It was a non-stop rain weekend in February but the house was great. The driveway has gravel everywhere, no mud, and plenty of room to park our 5 cars. Part of the deck has a roof so we could grill without getting rained on. The wood stove worked great and heated the place up a lot, but wasn't necessary because the furnace works well. The beds and sofas are comfortable. Overall we really liked the place and plan to stay there again in the future.

Holiday family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Holiday week was enjoyed with family at this location as it provided a mid-point location for us to meet. The owner communicated timely and with pertinent information. My first impression was that this home was actually larger inside than the feeling I had from the online pictures. Often times the opposite is the case. The large dining table was perfect for our meals together. As others have said, the kitchen was well stocked. We have had issues on this at other rentals. Furniture and decor was all done very tastefully with the "cabin/lake" theme. The place was clean and laid out fine for the intended purposes. Will be returning someday. Highly recommended.

Very impressed with items needed was already there. Cooking supplies from dishes, plates, utensils, spices, etc. We could cook a full meal no problem. Even had split wood for the fire pit. Very clean and cozy and beautiful evenings on the partially covered back deck. Enjoyed a nice 2 mile uphill cardio hike to overlook the lake. Downstairs fireplace gave a nice touch to a chilly evening while playing table tennis or playing games. Enjoyed wildlife in the mornings and even seen 4 deer walking through the woods one morning. As a real estate agent and conducting many showings, I give this property a 10 and would not hesitate in staying again. It made me consider in investments around that area which showed lots for sale.
