  • Fabulous Getaway!

    "This is a wonderful place for a large group! The furnishings make you feel right at home and it is so clean you can unpack and relax immediately! I went with my family to celebrate Easter and it was the perfect week-end. We are planning to make it an annual or even semi-annual event! It is very secluded and quiet; a great place to chill and unwind!"

  • Great place at the River!

    "My husband and I visited the owners at this cottage, as Doug & Mary Ellen are my husbands friends from many years ago. This visit was my first time to the cottage, and I was very impressed. I own and manage several rental properties at Raystown Lake, and I can no way compare the privacy this cottage offers to the guest, fantastic! So peaceful, clean, very nicely decorated, and the personal touch the owners offer is so welcoming! We met with some fellow friends in for a Huntingdon class reunion from Florida at this cottage, and as we sat on the deck overlooking the river, the peaceful setting was so inviting! The short drive to the lake, one of the best dinners in Huntingdon County is nearby, as well as the plenty of things to do within a 15 minute drive. Great place to kick back and relax, and enjoy the nature this cottage has to offer. Thank you Dave and Mary Ellen for a wonderful dinner, and what a beautiful place you have!"

  • PSU Football lodging

    "This was our second stay at Laurel Woods. The house is always clean and it has plenty of space for our group. Dianne is very organized and is always ready to help with any questions. We use this house as a place to stay for Penn State football games as it is about 50 minutes from State College. We will be staying again."
