Lakeside house, with finished basement, 3 BR 2 BA, sleeps 6 to 9
About Jack Lundstedt
We fell in love with Raystown Lake after camping here for many years. Once we had kids we decided to purchase a place close to the lake so our kids would always have this experience and memories.
Jack Lundstedt purchased this House in 2006
Why Jack Lundstedt chose Huntingdon
Location! Location! Location! Floating in a no wake zone and having it so close to the house was what sold us.
What makes this House unique
Location! Location! Location! This property allows walking distance access to Lake Raystown in a beautiful cove which is no wake. Dock, Float, Kayak, take a lawn chair down by the lake. We really enjoy hanging out by the fire on the front porch or rear deck.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
This place was perfect for my husband, 2 boys and myself. We liked how spacious the house was and especially loved the large finished basement. My boys loved the fire pit and ping pong table and I loved that there was a dishwasher and washer/dryer. Although a bit of a steep walk, we loved being able to walk down to the lake and fish right off the shore which was nice and quiet. We all really enjoyed our stay and would love to stay here again!
Great woodsy lakehouse getaway! Sleeps 9, but extra guest fee applies.
Our party of 8 (4 adults, 4 kids ages 6-9) thoroughly enjoyed our stay at FiveLakeside! The Raystown Lake area afforded us an enjoyable long weekend with friends...we rented a pontoon boat at Seven Points Marina; exploring caves nearby was a hit; and grocery stores are just ten minutes away. Jack, the property owner, was very communicative, prompt, helpful, and friendly. His welcome email is thorough and clear, with pictures for clarification. Info is also posted on the fridge for easy reference. The property and amenities are just as described and pictured... simple, clean, and comfortable. The house has a slight musty/stale smoker smell, but nothing overwhelming that wasn’t improved upon by briefly opening windows and keeping ceiling fans going. Beds were comfy (even the memory foam sofa pull out!) and the extra pillows and blankets were helpful. A well equipped kitchen allowed us to prep meals, eat in, and pack lunches for daily outings. The large basement was a great, separate hang out for movies and games! There is a stereo in the basement, but it doesn’t pick up any stations. However, it plays CDs and an auxiliary cord could be used to play music from a connected source. We also loved the extra table in the den upstairs for doing puzzles. The adults enjoyed relaxing with appetizers and drinks during afternoon rainstorms on the large covered porch out front and the ping pong table and fire pit out back made for fun evenings! We enjoyed walking down to the water for a quick swim or just time to explore in the woods. Worth noting for those planning on a budget, is that even though the property sleeps nine, there is an extra guest fee of $10 per guest per night for parties larger than six. All in all, we had a wonderful few days, enjoyed spending time together, and are appreciative to the Lundstedts for sharing their home!
We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay at our lake house! We do not smoke nor do we allow smoking inside our property- so we are not sure what this smell is but are working on addressing the issue to make future renters' stay more comfortable. Thank you again for communicating this to us and we appreciate you choosing FiveLakeside!

This property is one of few houses with direct access to the lake. The house was clean and exactly as advertised. We would definitely rent this property again if staying at Raystown.
Glad you enjoyed the house and location! We hope you come back again soon.

I enjoy this property, always nice to stay here,
Thanks for coming back to our place! Glad you enjoyed the house. Hope to see you next summer!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Five Lakeside. We were happy to have two full bathrooms for six adults. Also, there was plenty of gathering space for all of us. We liked the option of having meals inside or on the deck and we enjoyed the fire circle. Thank you! We would recommend this home to others.
Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at FiveLakeside!
We really enjoyed our time at this location. There was plenty of room in the house for the entire family and it had everything we needed. The house sits on a nice private lot and had several areas to just hang out and relax. The owners have really planned to make your stay special--from the decor, to the accommodations, to the activities available. They were very easy to work with and quick to respond to any questions or concerns. I hope our family can return there in the future.
We are so happy you liked our home! Hope you come stay with us again!
