Raystown Lake house description

This beautiful, quiet property is adjacent to the Raystown Lake Federal Lands and in between the Marina and Resort areas. Stroll down a private, quiet country lane to your own entrance to the lake. You can hear the birds singing and the fish leaping out of the water! This is a great entrance for kayaking or just floating on the provided rafts. (We will rent up to 4 kayaks upon request, also.) And a perfect place for a private picnic!

Just one mile down the road is the Aitch boat launch and fishing pier. A wonderful view of the tree covered mountains surrounds you. Public guided boat tours are available at the Marina and Resort areas.

You will truly enjoy the two HD TVs, the pool table and the 4-person hot tub!!!!

The master bedroom on the main floor has a large master bath w/ oversized Jacuzzi (non-jetted) tub, separate shower, walk in closet and Kohler fixtures. This master bedroom has a sliding glass door onto a rear deck w/ beautiful view of the federal lands. The main floor has dining room & large living room w/ gas free standing fireplace between the two, beautiful modern kitchen w/ every convenience you need, including an island w/ Jenn-Air grill & gas range unit, a Jenn –Air side by side refrigerator, built in microwave, built in oven, dishwasher, & garbage disposal. This main floor has nice laundry room & separate half bath.

The second floor loft contains two full size beds and a large, full size bathroom with a large shower. A convertible bed is in the living room for additional guests. Despite the number of beds, we will only rent to a maximum of six adults.

                              Year Purchased: 2007

                              About the owner: Mom and wife with a beautiful family, cook, blogger, and attorney. Our favorite pass time is to eat, drink and be merry. Doing it at the lake is a bonus!

                              Why the Owner Chose Raystown Lake:
                              The location provides for a quite, peaceful stay. This is a 'get-away' property, and if you love wildlife, you can see Eagles, Bobcats, Fox, Deer and many smaller, beautiful critters by just strolling quietly in the woods. Of course, you have to know how to look for them. We love the lake and playing in the water.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              The hot tub in the three seasons room followed by several rounds of pool while watching the big screen HDTV!
