It would be helpful to know where you live, but offhand, I'd say this looks like a big Fishing Spider, Dolomedes tenebrosus.

Yup, a D. tenebrosus. I've found several in my home so far this year, and yes they are a bit frightening when you aren't expecting them. Like the one I found last night on the handle of the kitchen refrigerator as I just about touched it before I saw it. :eek:
