Winter at Rustic Ridge
5/5 Stayed Feb 2019Ian L.
Yes, the cabin is well equipped and comfortably accommodated our families of 4 adults and 4 children. However, what really stands out about this place is its amazing mountain top location and the layout of the house and property. Everything was right where we expected it. The kids had a great time playing in the basement and loved the fire pit area. Highly recommend. Chris was a fantastic host as well. Published Feb 25, 2019

Perfect, beautiful little cabin with much more than the basics!
5/5 Stayed Dec 2018Lisa G.
We came with no more plans than to get away with friends for a weekend. On a whim, we visited the lake (by recommendation of the owner) and we’re glad we did. The cabin was perfect for our two families of four. All four kids (between 4 and 6) shared the bunk beds and the basement was perfect to. Let them play safely for hours! It was also the perfect adult hang out when the kids fell asleep. The kitchen had everything we needed and the cabin’s amenities were well-thought-out and more than we expected! We are talking about visiting again in the summer to have more outside adventures! Published Dec 28, 2018
Perfect place to get away!

We loved everything about the cabin. The basement was perfect for the kids. Chris was more than helpful and made us feel right at home. Spending Christmas her was perfect! Thank you Chris and Jackie ! Published Dec 23, 2018
Wonderful get away in quiet setting
5/5 Stayed Nov 2018Amy K.
We rented the house for a half-way meeting point for family over Thanksgiving. Chris met us before check-in and showed us all of the amenities to the cabin. No expense was spared in the construction. High quality everything. We easily fit the six of us around the table for Thanksgiving. We brought a lot of cooking items and other than the turkey pan and sifter to make Christmas cookies, we didn’t need to. Well equipped kitchen.
Very close to town to go shopping for anything you need. Quiet road with few neighbors. We hiked right out the front door. Visited Raystown Lake and surroundings. For winter visitors-you definitely need vehicles that can traverse steep roads. Freezing rain while we were there but I can see how it might be difficult to access the cabin. There was evidence of plowing from the snow storm the week before however. Thank you Chris and family for sharing your cabin with us. Would love to visit again. Published Nov 21, 2018
Great quiet family gathering and getaway
5/5 Stayed Nov 2018Terry H. Missouri
Perfect place for our family to gather for a weekend while visiting our daughter at Penn State. Very clean and plenty of room for all of us. Comfortable, clean beds and furniture, nice kitchen for indoor cooking and nice large outdoor area for BBQ and camp fire. Very secluded but easy to get to shopping and parks for hiking. Couldn’t have asked for more. Hope to stay again sometime. Published Nov 2, 2018
All of the comforts and conveniences of home and then some in a beautiful ridge-top setting.
5/5 Stayed Oct 2018Joshua H.
We spent a weekend here for a family gathering and it was a perfect experience. The cabin is spotless, spacious yet cozy, and luxuriously appointed. The owners considered every need – the interior has everything you could ask for for entertainment and dining, and that thoughtfulness extends to the well-equipped grill and campfire pavilion – firewood and camp cookers at the ready! The property is lovely – remote and quiet, but just a ten minute drive from groceries and the pharmacy – and is located at the very top of the ridge, offering a beautiful view from the front porch. Can’t recommend more strongly.Published Oct 19, 2018
Lovely home in beautiful location
5/5 Stayed Oct 2018Jill B.
I wish we’d been able to spend longer than just a weekend in this lovely home. Beautifully decorated, comfortable furnishings, and a wonderful setting and view to wake up to each morning. The owner met us at the door and explained all the necessities and amenities to us. We enjoyed the outdoor fire pit on Friday night, and the indoor gas fireplace in the mornings. Although the location feels nicely remote, we were pleasantly surprised to find grocery stores nearby, which was convenient as the place as we had to buy toilet paper and soap for the weekend. Hope we have the opportunity to rent this gorgeous home again! Published Oct 12, 2018
Memorable Group Getaway
5/5 Stayed Sep 2018Michelle K.
We stayed here for our class reunion at nearby (10 min) Juniata College. We knew the place looked beautiful but had no idea it would perfectly lend itself to some much needed catching up. Large sectionals in the living room and basement allowed for great conversation, along with the peaceful porch rocking chairs and outdoor pavilion/fire pit space for some fresh air and games.
The drive to get up to the cabin from the road is stone with several switchbacks, but the upward drive is worth the view and peacefulness to get away for a mountain escape.
The owner showed us around upon arrival and provided a helpful book of reminders to reference. Linens and towels were provided. The cabin was the cleanest I have ever stayed in— not a speck of dust was to be found! 6 cars easily fit in the driveway. There was plenty of hot water for 8 women to take showers and get ready for the day. (Ladies, that’s a big deal.)
I highly recommend this cabin for a group or large family— you won’t be disappointed. Published Sep 28, 2018
Beautiful, clean, well appointed
5/5 Stayed Sep 2018Philly ManPhiladelphia
My brother and I recently stayed at the cabin for a weekend of Mt Biking at the Allegrippis mt. biking trails over Raystown Lake. The cabin served us well. It is a new cabin that sits high over Huntingdon. The front porch, equipped with several chairs, looks over the mountains surrounding the lake. Inside, the kitchen had everything one could need -and, again, it was all new. The bedrooms and bathrooms were comfortable and clean. If we had more people, we would have made use of the lower level rec room.
The owners were great to deal with, meeting us at the cabin upon our arrival, showing us around the house, and providing us with a lay of the land.
And finally, the location was perfect only a mile or so outside of Huntingdon and minutes away from Raystown Lake.
Thank you. Published Sep 22, 2018
Great cabin in the woods
5/5 Stayed Sep 2018Elvin C.Hershey, Pennsylvania
Amazing place in Huntingdon PA to spend a few days at the lake. Cabin is brand new (you could still smell the fresh wood) and it has all the amenities you need for a relaxing time. Would definitely stay there again. My family of 8 slept comfortably. Chris Confer was very accommodating and helpful with some tips about the area. He was always available if we needed him for anything. Published Sep 19, 2018

The cabin is gorgeous with great attention to detail. The setting was very private and peaceful but close to any necessary amenities (ie restaurants, grocery store, gas,). The view from front porch was breathtaking! Chris was very helpful throughout our stay and even provided information on local sites. We will definitely be back!! Our new special paradise Rustic Ridge Retreat! Published Sep 14, 2018

Beautiful house, easily favorite rental in the area
5/5 Stayed Aug 2018Kevin H.
Rented the house for a guys trip over a long weekend and we absolutely loved the house. My group has rented several houses over the last few years and this one is easily our favorite. Amazing outdoor grilling area where we cooked all our meals, nice firepit, and comes with everything we needed. There were common condiments in the fridge and everything we needed for the weekend was there. Not a bad drive to the seven points marina where we rented a boat either. There is a very nice Giant close by where we got our groceries. Even with it being a new rental I’m surprised the house isn’t booked up for months in advance. I would highly recommend this house to anyone staying in the area. My group will definitely rent it again in the future. Published Aug 23, 2018
Amazing Ridgetop Cottage near Raystown Lake
5/5 Stayed Aug 2018sean k.
We had a group of seven friends who rented this cottage as a get together. It was an amazing experience. We were worried that a some rain in the forecast would dampen our fun. We were so wrong. It did rain a little bit, but with the covered porch and all of the amenities in the cottage, the rain didn’t bother us at all. This place is the opposite of roughing it, but it is also far away enough from everyone else to enjoy privacy and a feel of getting away from it all. The cottage was also close enough to quickly get to Raystown Lake and spend some time on the water. You can also quickly get to Huntington and grab a bite to eat. We will definitely be returning.

This vacation home sets the standard of excellence. It is spacious, up-to-date, has beautiful furnishings, a great kitchen, mattresses and fun decor. All of the details of the home were meticulously attended to. We loved sitting on the front porch and even saw a rainbow! The covered grill and eating area was nice and the firepit was a fun touch. It was a close drive to a good grocery store. The Trough Creek State Park was a short drive and had an amazing waterfall, hiking and suspension bridge. We would totally recommend the house and Chris, the owner, was a great host. Published Aug 7, 2018

Just What We Needed!
5/5 Stayed Jul 2018Nick D.
This was a vacation of firsts for my family. It was our first vacation with just our family, first time using Home Away and first time visiting Raystown Lake. Best I can say is that this won’t be out last visit here. Our stay was just perfect. The 5 days straight of rain were no match for the beauty and relaxation that fills this home. We loved playing the Foosball, exploring the property, cooking on the covered grill and our two boys (6 and 4) had blast playing video games. The owner, Chris, was extremely helpful in providing some suggestions for us to get us out of the house. Lincoln Caverns were a huge highlight of our trip. If you’re looking for a peaceful getaway Rustic Ridge Retreat will be just what you need. Published Jul 21, 2018
Beautiful mountain retreat!
5/5 Stayed Jul 2018joe G.
This house is new and impressive. The owners were easy to work with and thought of everything to make our stay relaxing and cozy. From the front porch to the finished basement the detail and workmanship of the house is exceptional. We especially liked the outside covered pavilion and fire pit. The house is close to supermarkets and restaurants and the closest boat ramp is ten minutes away. Seven Points Marina on Raystown Lake is a easy 20 minutes drive. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to visit again. Published Jul 13, 2018

Beautiful well crafted home! Perfect in every way!
5/5 Stayed Jul 2018Kayla C.
We stayed over the 4th of July week & couldn’t be more happy with our choice. This home is at the top of a hill with no neighbors in sight. You will have no complaints with the craftsmanship of this owner built home. Everything was there that we needed along with plenty of extras. We took the owners advice and went to the look out a couple miles down the road, rented a boat, went swimming, and enjoyed the quite of the home. We had a cook out on the grill, made Smores on the fire, and played board games with our whole family. We couldn’t be happier with our stay & plan to return to Raystown in the future. Thank you again for sharing your home with us. Published Jul 4, 2018
Fantastic place to stay !
5/5 Stayed Jun 2018Donovan S.
If you like to get away and relax this is the place to go. This place is on top of the hill away from everything but not far from all of the fun that’s happening around the area approximately 10 minuets from Huntington or the lake. The cabin is new construction with all of the amenities it has a fully equipped kitchen and a pavilion with a grill if you like to cook outside. There is plenty of space inside to move around and be comfortable with great couches on the main floor and downstairs in the finished basement to sit and relax. The bedrooms are spacious and extremely comfortable beds to get a great nights sleep. The two porches are great for sitting outside to have your morning coffee or an evening cocktail with great views of the hilltops around the area. Highly highly recommended !!!!!

Amazing cabin that has it all
5/5 Stayed Jun 2018Ian L.Frederick
This is an amazing modern cabin, even better than the pictures to see it in person. The attention to detail is obvious everywhere and, as others mention, the craftsmanship is impressive. We had a great weekend staying here, grilling at the covered area outside, hiking, and visiting the lake. The location is worth mentioning too – it is private, has a great view, and is only a few minutes from both Huntingdon and Raystown. Lastly, the owner (Chris) was great and easy to contact. Looking forward to visiting again!Published Jun 1, 2018
New House. Well built. Quiet, private setting!
5/5 Stayed May 2018Stanley & Lydia S.
Just the perfect quiet place for our family of 7 to enjoy Memorial Day weekend. The craftsmanship of this newly built house is amazing. The setting is so peaceful. We enjoyed walking the dirt roads and seeing all the birds. The whippoorwills serenaded us each evening at dusk as we sat around the campfire. Thank your for sharing this beautiful place with us.Published May 26, 2018
