We didn't know much about the Juniata River; we wanted to return to the Lake Raystown area, and we're so glad we found this place! We would definitely rent it again. Owners Doug & Mary Ellen were very helpful and super laid back. We're used to more uptight owners... The home was everything they promised - spacious, cool, peaceful, and right on the lazy Juniata River. We pulled up and were pleasantly surprised how nice it was. It is on a private drive along with some run-down fish camps, but this place is buffered from the neighbors by tall trees and shrubs. The owners have cared for the property, landscaping it nicely and keeping the house in great shape. It is very inviting. A small dock provides easy fishing, and the Juniata River is so shallow you can just about walk all the way across. We watched a family of turtles sunning themselves on rocks nearly every day we were there. Our dog didn't bark the whole vacation. Most of the house has ceramic tile flooring which helps to keep it cool. Large trees shade the property. A deck with table provides outdoor dining, and a fire ring with a bench was great fun at night. The sunroom is nearly all windows overlooking the river, and we saw herons fly by regularly. The kitchen with fridge, elec. stove, microwave, coffee maker and generous island provided ample space. We could have used some sharp chef's knives, measuring cups and spoons, but we made do. If you are a light sleeper, you may not get used to the train tracks that are about 1/4 mile away, but we rather enjoyed them (and smashed a bunch of pennies on the tracks for souvenirs.) One morning at 5am a fishing boat with a ridiculously loud motor woke us up, but most of the boaters had appropriately sized motors, or more often, were kayakers paddling quietly by. We walked to Top's Diner for a few meals and the food was delicious (and the free wi-fi came in handy.) Go to Rothrock Outfitters for kayak rental; Tony the owner dropped us off upriver, graciously drove us to the store when we realized we forgot to bring water, dropped us off again and retrieved us later. Boxer's Cafe has a great menu, a fun vibe and a killer eye of round sandwich. Dinner at Mimi's - great food and tasteful ambiance. All were about a seven minute drive away. We rented a boat from Seven Points Marina and tubed and fished for a few hours; two other days we went to the beach at Seven Points (20 minute drive.) Between the river and Lake Raystown, you get the best of both worlds

Year Purchased: 1983
About the owner: Avid fisherman, outdoorsman, General Manager of an all seasons resort, skiing and golfing. Honest and passionate about my cottage. Have owned it for 28 years.
Why the Owner Chose Raystown Lake:
In 1983 I was attending Penn State University and I didn't want to continue paying rent, so I bought the cottage because fishing is one of my favorite hobbies.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Very relaxing and private, yet close to everything. I love to fish and take the boat out and just float the river. We have eagles that nest nearby and you can see them soar around the river. My children like to kayak and there are alot of people who float the river in the summer which in only about knee deep most of the summer. The view is just breathtaking.
