About the property

5 Bdrm-3.5 Bath on 6 Acre Min from 7 Pt Marina - Call/Email for accurate price

The Chalets of Raystown Home # 1. From the moment you arrive at The Chocolate Moose Chalet, you are surrounded by the natural mountainous beauty of the Raystown Lake area. The chalet sits on almost 6 wooded acres of private land and was built in late 2011. This wonderful HIGH END rustic getaway offers a perfect balance of peace and quiet with convenient modern amenities. The home includes custom Amish hickory cabinets, granite countertops, handmade hickory floors, as well as as knotty pine walls and ceilings throughout the entire home.

A large, inviting master suite with private bath highlights the main living area of the Chalet. A large dining area and expansive living room complete the open floor plan theme throughout the home. An upper level includes 2 full bedrooms, a full bathroom with tub/shower combo, and two additional sleeping lofts that can be converted from seating areas to 2 queen pull out sleeper sofas.

The finished lower level includes 1300 sq. ft. of finished space! Within the finished basement are 2 additional bedrooms (2 twin beds and 1 King bed), a full bathroom, and a 700 sq. ft. recreation room. The recreation room has an abundance of couches, a pull out sofa sleeper, a 55 inch flat panel TV, Blu Ray DVD player, and a card/puzzle/game table and chairs.

A relaxing covered porch overlooking the woods spans over half the home and is approximately 1200 sq. ft. Plus, the chalet now includes a wheelchair accessible ramp!

If you are looking for the perfect combination of rustic looks, sprawling size, backwoods privacy, modern amenities, and close proximity to Raystown Lake and 7 Points Marina (Beach, Aligrippis, Hiking Trails, Boating) , the Chocolate Moose Chalet is a great choice to “get back to nature in a modern way!”

About Michael & Karen Fedash

My wife and I grew up in the North East part of Pennsylvania. After spending a few years in the Washington DC area during my wife's graduate schooling, we decided to relocate closer to where we grew up and chose Hershey, PA as our place to call home. We have 1 son and 1 daughter, both under age 4. We enjoy spending time at the chalet, boating, relaxing, and spending time with our children and family.

Michael & Karen Fedash purchased this house in 2011

Why Michael & Karen Fedash chose Pennsylvania

The property was the perfect combination of size (6 acres), privacy, and location. Only 3 miles from Raystown Lake and 35 minutes from State College (as we are both Alumni of Penn State), along with it being only 100 miles from Hershey gave us the perfect excuse to have a second home that offered so much convenience for our activities outside of work.

What makes this house unique

The home boasts SPRAWLING size (3700 sq foot) privacy, a 1200 sq foot wrap around covered porch, along with a fire pit, and spaciousness everywhere you turn. As you sit on the porch in the evenings, with the lights turned down low on the porch, it doesnt get much better than seeing the lightning bugs flash in the woods while enjoying a glass of wine with good conversation between family and friends.

Great location, beautiful home, very peaceful and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at both Chocolate Moose and Sugar Maple. We had a family reunion and created lots of great memories... already planning 2019! I have rented many other properties all over and the owners are the most generous with their supplies. There is everything you need to get started, which makes renting so much easier. Plenty of seating inside and out, lots of places for people to gather in small or large groups. Weather was perfect... everything was perfect. It's a great place to gather friends and family but I imagine it is just as great to rent and 'unplug' and just enjoy the peacefulness of the house and the surroundings! We'll be back!!!

Thanks!

Family vacation best cabin, lots of space

  • 5 of 5

For our family of 17 of many ages this was a wonderful place to get together. Great kitchen for those large meals with plenty of seating. 5 bedrooms with extra sofa beds were ok, but King bed in master was well used and needed to be replaced. Open shared spaces were great for game time. Wrap around porch and fire pit were also great.

Bring your own bedding and towels for 17 was a negative, 3 of the families were from out of state and had to buy bedding at Walmart. Woods were great for privacy but no level grass (only road rock) area for outside play.

Overall this is a great place, we would return again.

Amazing retreat

  • 5 of 5

The house is in the woods, but close to civilization - absolutely gorgeous home - comfortable beds - spacious common areas - great outdoor area with fire pit. Owners are easy to deal with. I would highly recommend this get away to anyone and may even use it again for another trip :)

A++++++

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family just spent a week in this awesome cabin. We LOVED it! It was immaculant inside and out. Having 4 bathrooms and a spacious kitchen area was a huge plus! The owner was very easy to deal with. We had four small children under 4 and they had the most fun on the porch and playing in the stone area. All of the adults also spent a lot of time relaxing on the porch as well. Raystown Lake was 7 minutes away and we enjoyed the beach area every day there. I can't recommend this place enough to everyone who is looking for a quiet, peaceful place to stay. You feel so far away from everything and yet anything you could need or want is only minutes away. We are looking forward to staying at the Chocolate Moose Chalet again.

50th birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 3 days at the Chalet celebrating my Aunt's 50th birthday. There was 13 of us, ranging in age from 70 to 15. There was plenty of room for everyone to go and do what we wanted or be altogether in same room. We loved spending time out on the deck that overlooked the woods. We got to go to 7 Points to see the lake, no swimming of course, but hopefully planning a return trip in summer so we can get to the lake and spend time on that. We had a little problem with getting access to the utility closet to turn on the water and then with the WI-FI, but Mike answered our calls right away and got everything straightened out. On the day we left, Mike even called me. Everyone had a great time, we just loved spending time together. We will be going back again.
