"Our latest visit to the Drooly Bear was our fifth. We return because we enjoy the house, its amenities, and the location—not far from Raystown Lake and Trough Creek State in central Pennsylvania where we hike, picnic and simply enjoy the wonderful scenery. Our beagle Emma enjoys long walks on the many trails of Trough Creek State Park. We have visited the Drooly Bear every season of the year but particularly enjoy the autumn. The foliage is breathtaking. The house has everything we need to cook, rest, work, and relax. The newest addition is Internet access and Netflix-- welcome and necessary conveniences today, but there’s also a large collection of DVDs. There are grocery stores nearby but we choose to bring everything we need so we don’t have to drive anywhere. The Drooly Bear has comfortable beds, lounge chairs, utensils, a spacious kitchen, a variety of cooking spices, pots and pans, glassware, and enough space to enjoy each other’s company or escape for a nap or to work. A huge front and side porch is a great place to sit and unwind. There’s also a gas grill for barbecuing. Matt is an excellent host. He’s made the Drooly Bear cozy and inviting. He is accessible 24/7 to answer questions and solve any problems. We’ll keep returning to the Drooly Bear because it’s a comfortable and enjoyable hideaway in the best part of scenic Pennsylvania."

"This was the perfect place for a weekend getaway! The kitchen is open to the pool table and there is ample seating around the center island for watching the chef. The hot tub was fantastic after a day of hiking and kayaking on the lake. The lake is just a short walk down a wooded country lane. We would definitely come back! Although we did not bring a dog, the house was perfect for a couple/family traveling with their family pet! The owners were very friendly and helpful!"

"Wonderful week at the lake and mountain biking. House was clean, spacious and tastefully decorated. Enjoyed time on the front and back decks, beautiful view from the rear! Plenty of parking for 2 cars and a boat trailer. Short trek to the Allegrippis trails and to the boat launch. We'll be back to relax next year!"

"My family of 6 stay here and we had a very relaxing time.
Very seclude and private. The only small issue was, which for me whats not an issue at all. But my twin boys 9, didn't like 1960 model TV they had at the house.
Other than that kids and mom had a nice time."
