Completely furnished with most of the comforts of home, we rent by the night, the week, or the month from March 1 thru December 15 (weather permitting). Summer is our prime time and to fill far in advance. Before and after summer, rates are a little lower. Weekend rates are slightly higher than weekday rates due to demand. We may rent by the month with the rate dependent on the month(s) requested. Call for this pricing, please.

Come to Raystown and enjoy tons of water activities: swimming, fishing, canoeing, kayaking as well as hiking, biking and bird-watching! You can jump into the Dirt Fest at the Allegrippis Trail or try your favorite rib recipe at our Barbecue at the Beach event. The K-Bass Tournament is scheduled in spring and Creation, Christian Music Festival comes to Orbisonia in June. A vacation in Raystown will be one to remember for years to come. Can't take a week off? Visit us for a long weekend or, even better, come during the week for a discounted price!

Raystown Lake is a popular waterway in south central Pennsylvania. The 29 mile long lake and surrounding area are owned in large part by the federal government with several state-owned parks and forests close by. It is a wonderful area to spend a family vacation with great hiking, hunting, boating, swimming, fishing, and bird watching. Other popular attractions include caverns, railroading, horse-back riding, lake cruises, boat rentals just to mention a few. For golfers, Huntingdon Country Club offers a public golf course about 4 miles north of us. Volunteers have recently created the Allegrippis Trail which is popular with biking enthusiasts. Fishing tournaments frequent the area and Barbecue at the Beach is held in September. During your stay, you may be blessed to see a bear swimming across the lake or a bald eagle returning to its nest.

The cabin is also only 10 minutes drive from Juniata College in Huntingdon, PA and about 45 minutes drive to Penn State University main campus in State College, PA

About Linda White

With an eye to invest in rental property during the late 1990's, a broker led us to our lovely cabin property. We fell instantly in love with the property and made an offer to purchase right away. Although we were delayed in closing by paperwork on the seller's side, we began renting them even before we officially owned them! Thus began our real estate investing and my choice to become a licensed real estate agent. If you are leaning in that direction, I would gladly share my experience with you.

Linda White purchased this cabin in 1998

Why Linda White chose Huntingdon

We have made many improvements since 1998, keeping the rustic charm but making the cabin more comfortable for our guests. The cabin is semi-private with natural vegetation surrounding it. A relaxing area awaits with a picnic table, campfire ring and cast-iron charcoal grill. While we are not set up to host large numbers of people for meals, etc. there are many picnic areas and pavilions nearby which can be secured for just such an event. These areas may be reserved by calling the US Army Corps of Engineers office.

What makes this cabin unique

Awaken to birds singing in the morning. If you rise early enough, you may see the deer trek down off the hill toward the creek (a deer run goes right across our property...make sure your eyes are open...one guest was walking her dog and startled a deer right behind her cabin!) Rock and roll to your hearts delight on the lake or the trails, then return to your cabin and grill your favorite meal. Relax by the campfire, enjoy your beverage and just chill.

The cabin was cozy and the privacy was great, look forward to visiting again.

We want to rent more than one cabin in the future for the whole family, it was so peaceful and quiet. We enjoyed not hearing anything but the birds singing. The lake is a short drive from the cabin so it seemed liked two vacations in one. Defiantly will be back

Sooo much fun!

  • 5 of 5

Linda was very easy to get a hold of and accommodating to us by allowing us to check in early and check out late. We loved our stay, the cabin is cozy and big enough for 2 people and our 2 big dogs. Beautiful porches, fire pit and grill! Located in the woods and private enough away from the surrounding cabins. We can't wait to return.

Great location, great price, great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was clean & in a great location- very close to all the things we wanted to do. Just enough to feel secluded without being too far from modern conveniences. Loved the cabin & the trip! Can't wait to come back!!

Nice property/cabin

  • 4 of 5

Had a nice time. The shower is small, if you are a very large person you would have difficult time with it. Very cute cabin.

Owner's Response: Hi, Cynthia, Glad you had a nice time. FYI, for guests who prefer a more spacious bathing experience, our large cabins have a full bath with shower. While the rate is a little higher, these cabins have 3 bedrooms and sleep up to 8 people.
