Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: We have lived here since we were married. It was Bruce's home place & we fell in love with the residents, the landscape, & the entire area. Bruce dairy-farmed untill he was called to the Army. When he returned he again farmed for a while. We started & raised our family. He was employed by a local business working swing shift .Lydia is an RN, full time employed except a few years when our boys were young. We thouroughly loved what we did . We were both in active PR jobs,used to meeting people.Now we enjoy meeting new people & helping them enjoy part of what enticed us to become owners of vacation rental.Bruce delights in talking of the local history & gives interesting tours of the area along with tid-bits of lore assocciated with Huntingdon County

Why the Owner Chose Raystown Lake:
We purchased the farm from our mother so we could see others enjoy & treat our properity as their own.This home was on a land -grant from William Penn . Built in 1789 with many continuous renters & owners. Some added to it's beauty, some deterred from it. Now The Lane's Country Homestead stands as a historical beauty. Come & see . Anytime you wish to tour give us a call & if it is available, we will be glad to show it.We are very proud of what it has now become.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
We meet such a variity of families, Living from different directions in the United States,from various localities & cultures. Most all the children are well behaved & we can imagine the family teaching,helping & enjoying them. Family means so much! We enjoy the early morning ritual of coffee, tea ,meditation, & guessing the weather for the day under our gazebo on the patio.We enjoy the farm fields, mowing grass & garden work. Our real fun time is riding our 4 wheelers up in the wooded areas.Bruce is estatic when it begins to snow.! He delights in hopping onto his tractor to plow the driveways clear.
