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 wifes 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 chalet in 2011

Why Michael & Karen Fedash chose Raystown Lake

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 chalet 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.

We Love the Moose!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Chalet. It is extremely well appointed and you feel like you are staying at a good friends home. Lots of room for a large group, we had 11adults for this visit, and the recently installed wheelchair ramp was most appreciated. This is a secluded spot with a great wrap around porch and yet is close to the lake, great hiking trails as well as the stores for groceries, etc Mike the owner was very attentive and checked in with us to be sure all was well. The Chalet is beautifully built and decorated and we can`t say enough about how well thought out the design and layout are. We will be back as soon as we can to The Moose!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking care of our home. We were glad to install the wheelchair ramp for your family and glad your spurred us to do so because we are sure it will help others as well. We have ensured we are installing one on the Sugar Maple Chalet as well for good measure. We look forward to having you back again!

Fabulous Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place for a large group! The furnishings make you feel right at home and it is so clean you can unpack and relax immediately! I went with my family to celebrate Easter and it was the perfect week-end. We are planning to make it an annual or even semi-annual event! It is very secluded and quiet; a great place to chill and unwind!

A wonderful chalet!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 adults and 3 babies were thrilled to rent this chalet! It had plenty of room for all of us to gather together and offered space for those that needed to play games or just wanted quiet time to relax! The kitchen was well stocked and we found the whole house very clean and neat! Michael's attention to detail was very helpful and it was great to work with him! We look forward to returning to this wonderful rental property! We what to take advantage of the huge porch and the fire pit... It was too cold for us to enjoy it this time! We were thrilled to see turkey's in the woods behind us and a deer came to visit also! We had a very enjoyable weekend !

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

Chocolate Moose Chalet was a perfect spot for our first family gathering of children, spouses and grandchildren. There were 12 of us, including 4 little ones under 6 years old! There was plenty of room whether we were in our own spaces or gathered together for meals or games. Michael was easy to work with and very accessible. I appreciated his attention to detail, which also revealed itself in the excellent condition of the home. The wrap around decks really expand the living area and there is ample seating.

We also enjoyed roasting marshmallows over a campfire in the fire pit with the provided benches and swinging on the canopy swings.

There is a long outside stairway to get to the main living area, and another set of stairs to go to the 2nd floor or ground level area. You can reach the lower level from the outside, as well, on a flat surface which gives you access to another large living room, 2 bedrooms and a full bath.

Having never been to Raystown Lake we weren't sure what we would find. The area far exceeded our expectations! We enjoyed swimming at the lake, walking the trail and a trip to the Visitor's Center, which is like a mini-science museum. The many brochures provided at the Chalet were also helpful in planning any activities.

The Chalet is very convenient to the lake and to a shopping area which includes a Walmart for all your vacation needs.

Beautiful, Beautiful Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

Anyone looking for a family or best friends get together, this is the place to rent! The porch was beautiful and we wish it was a little warmer our weekend. But Sunday morning the ladies put on coats and sat outside to enjoy the view anyways. We had planned to eat out Saturday night but the home was so great that no one wanted to leave. The kitchen had everything you could dream of in a great home. This place was so clean and had very high end furniture that it made you feel great to stay at the Chocolate Moose Chalet. I would love to come back in the future!

Beautiful lodge--everything we wanted and more

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, secluded lodge that we shared with another family (11 people--2 couples and 7 kids ranging from 19-12). Oldest kids were visiting PSU and we wanted to stay away from campus (lodge is just over an hour away from PSU). Very clean, well-maintained property. Great fly fishing within 20-30 minutes away. Plan on coming back again--really enjoyed the visit!
