Raystown Lake house description

My Otter Place is situated on two acres of pristine countryside less than a quarter mile from Seven Points Marina and recreational facility that is located on Raystown Lake. This modern vacation home has all of the comforts of home and will provide you, your family, and friends with many fond memories.

Lake Raystown is the fishing and boating capital of central Pennsylvania and is noted for 40-plus-pound stripers and unlimited amounts of bass and lake trout. There is also a community pond only 50 yards from the driveway for great daytime fishing with the kids and serene evening strolls.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy the quiet, moonlit evenings by the fire pit or screened-in patio and fill your summer days with fishing, boating, and water activities on the lake. The Raystown region is also becoming well known for its super mountain bike trails. Fall and winters are filled with hunting, skiing, and trips to 'Happy Valley' to enjoy Penn State Nittany Lion football. The Penn State stadium is just over 40 minutes away.

My Otter Place is a very exclusive rental that is sure to provide you and yours with many hours of fun-filled, relaxing pleasure. Reserve your vacation today - visit our website via the link below and contact us for more information.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: Pennsylvanians by heart... Coast Guard family that has lived in Hawaii, Florida, Virginia and Maryland. Originally from just north of Pittsburgh and presently living in Hesston, PA.

              Why the Owner Chose Raystown Lake:
              We fell in love with Raystown Country the first time we vacationed here in the late 90's. I frequently traveled from Virginia to the North Western woods of PA to visit my families camp located in Kennerdell, near Oil City. We finally stumbled across Raystown Lake that had all that PA could offer from the top notch striper and trout fishing to herds of deer and abundance of wildlife. The serenity of the Spring, Fall and Winter are indescribable, tranquil and majestic. Summers on the Lake are... well just come out and see for yourself... We'll see you on the lake...

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              My Otter Place is located just minutes from the gates of Seven Points recreational park, marina and boat launches. The home itself is in a very exclusive neighborhood that's cuddled away from all of the hustle and bustle of all the other campers and boaters. The back porch is screened in and within view of the campfire area. These quite evenings will instill wonderful family memories in all for many years to come.
