About David E. Pelletier, Agent for Owner

We are the Spur of the Moment Associates! We bought the Hideout at a public sale and had no intention of buying anything! We didn't even have a check book with us! Luckily, another set of friends were along, they are the couple in the middle, and the Mrs. had a checkbook and the Spur of the Moment Associates were formed!


David E. Pelletier, Agent for Owner purchased this house in 2007

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a beautiful home!!! We were able to use the Hideout for my wedding as well as a family get together. It is hard to find a rental house that can fit us all and the Hideout was perfect!!! I have been in contact with the owner for a a handful of months prior to our trip. David was so helpful with making my special day possible!! We had a small intimate wedding this June. The property was perfect for an outdoor wedding and with lots of help from David everything came together perfect! I would highly recommend the Hideout to anyone that is wanting to go riding, have a reunion or just getaway! Beautiful place

Felt just like home....

  • 5 of 5

Having owned the Hideout since 2007, to be able to go back as a guest to celebrate my birthday with family was a treat. The Hideout as always was clean, warm, inviting with room for all. We will certainly go back! Thanks for a wonderful visit!

Perfect Family Get-A-Way

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to the Hideout and again, we were not disappointed. Our family ages 4 to 64 were able to return this year for another wonderful retreat. The house was just as we remembered it from last year—clean and tidy. Your cleaning staff should be commended. The layout works great for our group, with bedrooms and bathrooms on the first and second floor, large open living and dining area, and a nice kitchen with an island to serve our meals on. We love the wrap around porch and we ate all our meals outside. It was great to have outdoor tables and chairs for our entire family. We love the seclusion of the home, and all the walking trails on the property. When we arrived, there was an issue with the trash dumpster. I called the owner and he was able to answer my questions and concerns. The rental agent was very helpful and replied to all my emails in a timely manner. Thanks David for you help. The weather was awesome—cool evenings and nice sunny days. I must say, that the best part of our time at the Hideout was the bear we saw on our last evening. A first for many of us and the perfect way to end our time together. Great memories and plenty of laughter – It was just what we all needed.

Spur of The Moment

  • 5 of 5

Great location and easy to find! The wildlife was wonderful to watch, from deer in the front and back yard to watching the wild turkeys. It was quite and relaxing. The inside is huge and very clean. People sat in the living room and still interacted with people at the kitchen table. The bedrooms were roomy. There is three upstairs and three downstairs. Plenty of bathrooms and large enough to move around in. There is a large laundry room you can store stuff in. Will definitely stay again next year. Tammie S.

Another Great Stay at the Hideout!

  • 5 of 5

Have been returning to the property for a few years. Love that we can take our horses with us and ride the Rothrock State Forest trails and other connecting trails. Lots to do if you enjoy the outdoors- hiking, riding horse, fishing, etc. Plus, very peaceful location for lots of quiet time and opportunities to be off "the grid".

Owner's Response: We are so glad you chose to come back to the Hideout! I agree with you the riding is terrific! Thank you for yet another visit to the Hideout, your repeat business is appreciated very much. Future Hideout friends bring your horses for a vacation too! They will love it and you won't regret bringing them.

Clean, Spacious, Great provisions!

  • 5 of 5

Our family...children and grandchildren enjoyed this spacious, clean cabin located close to Raystown Lake. There were plenty of kitchen supplies, ample towels and wash cloths and freshly made beds. We made use of the washer and dryer with swimming and boating. The family kept expressing what a nice cabin this was. We've been to a number over the years and this one ranked high on our list. We appreciated the excellent communication with the owners. They always got back to us in a timely fashion and were very helpful and considerate. Our family would highly recommend this cabin.
