Property description

Quiet, rustic cozy home on wooded grounds, perfect for a relaxing getaway. We are 1 1/2 miles from James Creek boat launch near the center of Lake Raystown, located near Entriken. This home has two bedrooms, one on the first floor with a double bed, and the other, on the second floor, with two beds - a double and a queen. The second bedroom also sports an upright piano for the musical guest. Wi-Fi is available. Deck is furnished with outdoor tables, seating, and a gas grill. A fire ring is available off the deck for making s'mores and the ingredients are complimentary! Plenty of birdwatching and chattering squirrels. See our tourist guide booklet for all kinds of fun things to do. Have a great time!

Lake Raystown is the fishing and boating capital of central Pennsylvania and James Creek launch is a hot spot for bass tournaments. Five minutes from Lake Raystown Resort and Waterpark and Trough Creek State Park's Balanced Rock and Swinging Bridge, multiple hiking trails, and great trout fishing. Multiple geocaching opportunities in the area. 15 minutes from Seven Points Recreational Area and Marina and the Allegrippis biking trails.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1974

Why the Owner Chose Raystown Lake:
Our family purchased acreage on Piney Ridge in 1971 to take advantage of the newly formed Raystown Lake, built a road, cleared the land, roasted many a hotdog over burning brush piles, and finally built the cottage in 1974. It has been the site of many reunions, a wedding, a few honeymoons, anniversary & birthday celebrations, and Thanksgiving dinner has been a tradition here since 1974. The cottage has been well used & well loved. We chose the spot for its proximity to the lake to take advantage of the many activities such as boating, skiing, swimming and fishing. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
