Claysburg Chalet Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom + Loft, 2 Bath, Sleeps up to 14, Hot Tub & WiFi

Wonderful mountain top chalet at an elevation of more than 2,900 feet, this house sleeps up to 14 and has direct ski-in/out access just steps away from Blue Knob Four Season Resort trails and less than 1 mile from Blue Knob Golf Course. Located in the Little Valley section of the mountain, this is a perfect location for easy access to the slopes and being apart of the ski village. In the non-ski season, this is a very quiet spot without the feeling of isolation as you will often encounter hikers and mountain bikers cruising past the house.

The Cedar Haus is the perfect place to get a way for a long weekend or full week. The Cedar Haus is fully equipped mountain house that has been recently upgraded with many interior and exterior features such as new carpet, hardwood floors, appliances, roof, stain, exterior fire pit, paint and furniture.

The house features three (3) Queen Bedrooms, a Bunk Room that sleeps up to nine (9), and a Loft with full size futon and workstation - full supply of linens and towels are provided. The chalet has 3 HDTV's, 2 DVD Players, DirecTV, and complimentary WiFi.

Relax in the outdoor hot tub near the fire pit that can accommodate up to 6 adults.

Guests also have complimentary privileges to the resort's indoor / outdoor pool, exercise room and spa located at the community center less than 1 mile from The Cedar Haus.

For large groups or if The Cedar Haus is booked, please see our adjacent property, The Midway Chalet (Homeaway property 4052134) at Blue Knob.

NOTE: The chalet is a pet-free and smoke-free residence. For our summer guests, this mountain house does NOT have air conditioning.

You MUST BE at least 25 years old to rent this chalet.

About The Cedar Haus - Lance Manlove/Matt Mundok

The Manlove and Mundok families from Lewes, Delaware purchased this house (formerly known as Chalet Stembogen) in December 2012. We are very excited to take advantage of the beautiful Appalachian Mountains. We love the beach, but owning a mountain house allows us to experience the best of both worlds. We are happy to open our home for others to enjoy this wonderful place during all four seasons.

What makes this chalet unique

In the spring, summer and fall, you will not believe how quite it is on the mountain. This house allows for a true getaway from your typical everyday routine, without missing out. The workstation and Wi-Fi allow you to stay connected - on your terms. Waking to crisp mornings, warm days and cool nights makes for a perfect retreat. Relax by the fire or in the hot tub. What could be better?

In the winter and ski season, the village bustles with activity as you and your guests can ski in and out of the Cedar Haus at your leisure. This is some of the best skiing PA has to offer. You won't be disappointed with the long trails and challenging terrain.

Lovely place and perfect for college friends' get together

  • 5 of 5

Truly enjoyed the site and the view (even with the snowflakes blowing horizontally in mid-October!). Was there with a group of friends from college empty nesting and just catching up on each others' lives. Cedar Haus was a good fit for our needs, very relaxing and comfortable. We plan to try again next year but for a longer weekend!

spacious and lovely a 9 out of 10

  • 5 of 5

This house was spacious and suited our needs pretty well. The cupboards held all the items we needed to prepare a feast! There was even extras of some things like paper towels and garbage bags. There is a really cool angled room that is perfect for kids, could hold 9 of them! The mattresses in there however were futtons and slim hard and totally not comfortable for adults sleep needs. The dining room, bedroom and living room furnishings are up to date and super comfy, contrasted by the kitchen and bathrooms which seem recycled from old houses ( blue bath tub). There were some games and lots of movies, and plenty of cable channels if you're stuck inside.

Our group was 9 women so for us, a perfect 10 would be

1) better internet service

2) another 1/2 bath-2 bathrooms and 9 women makes mornings a long time to get going somewhere.

3) a bar for the hot tub cover. We had to wrestle the cover off and thankfully it wasn't soaked.

4) earlier check in and later check out

Otherwise it was a lot of fun in a nice neighborhood. The owner even called us to see if everything was working well. Thank-you Matt!

We enjoy our time at the Cedar Haus

  • 5 of 5

We are annual visitors to the Cedar Haus. The house and amenities are as described. The property is clean and well maintained and the owners continue to make improvements. One of the owners always checks in with us during the week just to make sure everything is ok. And if there is ever a problem they are quick to fix it. We would recommend this property to friends and family. While staying there you are close to many attractions such as Delgrossos Amusement park, Altoona Curve ball park, Horseshoe curve and the Altoona Train Museum, Raystown Lake. Our time on the mountain is always an overall positive experience.

Beautiful family weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing family weekend in July. The Cedar Haus was very clean and cozy. Plenty of room for the three families and 8 kids. Everyone had a blast, thank you so much.
