Why Sandra Bader chose Pennsylvania

I fell in love with Raystown Lake while camping and boating there. It's absolutely beautiful. I also wanted a log home that was private and secluded within a few miles of the lake.

What makes this house unique

Even though the Mountain Rendezvous is very close to Raystown Lake and boat launches, it is extremely quite and peaceful.

Beautiful place with a great view

  • 4 of 5

A friends family (3) and we(4) stayed here during the memorial day weekend of 2016. The place is as described in the website. It is not a very big cabin, 1st floor bedrooms are small and the one on the loft has a low ceiling, but had ample bedding for the 7 of us. The bathroom was a busiest place since there is only one and we had some trouble on the first night with the potty getting clogged, even before we started using it. If not for that hiccup, we had a very good time at this place, had a good time on the Pool table, deck, lawn and BBQ gril outside.

We did hear some wildlife sound outside, especially during the night and it scared all of us to get indoors.

Overall the place was clean and we enjoyed our stay for the most part.

Fall Leaves & Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Mountain Rendezous. It was very clean, and comfortable. Views are great, and the evening stars are beautiful. Her home offered all the things that you need to run away for a nice getaway. The drive up to the house is a bit steep and dark at night. So, make sure you get there in the day the first time you visit. Once you know how to get to the house, its fine. Will go back again for sure. There is a lot to do around the area, which makes staying at this home great too!!

Well pleased

  • 5 of 5

So comfortable, nicely appointed with a perfect remoteness. We could almost touch the stars. Amazingly we ate out on the deck and there were no insects. It was so relaxing even our 5yr old granddaughter did not ask to turn on the TV. True getaway.

Great house in the woods

  • 4 of 5

My friends and I were looking for a place to get away from it all for a weekend and this place was perfect for that. It was a fairly secluded house with only one far away neighbor in sight. The interior was very comfortable. We particularly liked the wood burning stove. The interior was fairly well maintained with only a few minor repairs needed. The exterior was pretty with a wrap around porch and a swing. The owner was very nice and was easy to work with. The last half mile to the house is very rough with rocks and steep hills. However we were able to make it easily even with our small car. However, I would guess you would need a 4x4 if there was a lot of snow.

I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking to escape to the woods for a few days.
