The Knotty Pine is 10 minutes away from Raystown Lake and a quick 5 minute walk down to a private inlet! Built in 2021, this brand new home was designed for you and your large group to stay!! It has a fire pit, grill, foosball, and an arcade with over 3,000 games! The main floor contains a large kitchen, a stunning living room full of windows, 2 bedrooms including the master, 2 bathrooms and a laundry room. The lower level - 2 more bedrooms and bathrooms with a very accommodating game room and 2nd kitchen.

Whether you like to be at the lake or in the mountains enjoying the views, this property will not let you down. Go boating, hiking, mountain biking, hunting on the federal grounds, to a Penn State game, to a lake beach, water park, or gather with a large group of friends/family!! This home is perfectly designed for an extended family reunion, baby shower, church retreat or small wedding, anything but a wild party 🙂

The Knotty Pine Chalet has something for every season and age group!! Sit outside on the large deck and watch an amazing sunrise as you sip your coffee or snuggle up inside or outdoors by the fire pit. Have a huge meal together around the handcrafted wooden dinning room table that seats 12. Add the chairs around the island and comfortably entertain your full group for any meal.

Raystown Lake and Seven Points Marina is 10 minutes away down the mountain! Bring your boat and trailer! Our home has plenty of parking!! You can alternatively rent a boat, wave runner, or kayak. Raystown Lake is unique in that it is 28 miles of lake (8,300 acres) to to explore! It is surrounded by Federal Game Land, all preserved in its natural habitat. This means no homes on Raystown Lake have private access to the water. Our home is one of the unique few that you can take a 5 minute walk to get to one of the lake's inlets. A nice private space to hangout. Be sure to be on the lookout for the deer that love to come for early morning lake drinks. We have seen all kinds of wildlife at this home! There are two beach areas on the lake, two restaurants to dock the boat and get something to eat or get gas for the boat right on the water. Also, many little private coves and areas to explore!

We take pride in our home, and want you to feel at home when you are our guest. We take cleanliness seriously and will do our best to make sure everything is perfect for your vacation.

We will accept up to 18 overnight guests. Renters must be at least 23 years old, with no rentals for high-school or college parties without older adult (age 23+) supervision, renters insurance, and a commitment not to use the home for alcohol fueled partying! Pets are allowed with an additional fee. No smoking inside the house. Noise must be controlled after 9 p.m. If you need to cancel your reservation, we will refund 100% if you do so 60 days or more before your stay.

Our property is equipped with outdoor security cameras, and we will enforce these policies. Renters who choose to throw large fraternity style, alcohol fueled parties, will be held responsible for all damages, may have the police called, and may be have access to the property removed, forfeiting all monies paid. This policy ensures that we can offer a safe and secure guest experience, maintain our property in top shape for guests, and maintain respect for the neighbors.

Check-in procedures will be sent prior to arrival. We will generate a unique front door lock access code to each guest and you may be asked to have your ID for security. You will have our host's personal cell number and we can be reached any time before or during your trip to ensure a wonderful stay at our home!

Finally, we will clean the property after your stay, but we do require guests to leave the rooms and floors free of debris, trash, wet towels, dishes, etc. Sheets and towels will need to be placed in the laundry area and dishes cleaned and put back where they were found. This allows us to charge a smaller cleaning fee for such a large home. If any items are left behind we do charge a minimum of $25 extra for the return. This covers the time for our crew to go back and look for the item, as well as shipping.

Please let us know if you have any questions. In designing the home we tried to think of everything you would need and we will be honored to be your hosts! The mountain and lake combination never disappoints.
