  • 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."

  • Wonderful!

    "Four generations of my family stayed at the cabin recently and everything was perfect. From the cabin itself which is beautiful and well-laid out for large groups, to where it is located near the lake and state parks, and all the extras like the ping pong and pool tables. We highly recommend walking the trails around the cabin and also nearby Trough Creek State Park. Tatman Run Recreation Area is really close for the beach and fishing. We found plenty to do regardless of the weather. Everything was exactly as described with no surprises and the owners were quick to answer our only question. The pictures are accurate and beautiful but this place really needs to be experienced in person. We highly recommend to people of all ages."

    "This is a beautifully decorated home that provides a quiet, peaceful, safe and life-giving atmosphere where people can kick up their feet and relax, read, build relationships and have lots of fun. It is located in a serene area with woods, wide open space and hills. It is close to the beautiful Raystown Lake and the awesome wonder of the view from the top of the dam! If you want a relaxing vacation, this is the place for you!"
