  • Summer Vacation

    "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!"

  • 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!"

  • Fall Mountain Bike Weekend

    "My Otter Place is the perfect rental for a mountain bike weekend. Easy ride directly from the house to the Alligrippis trails. House is clean, comfortable, and has plenty of room to hang out. Dinner at Boxers in Huntingdon is a must after a long ride."

  • A wonderful Christmas!

    "We decided to bring our 9 yr old, autistic son here for the holidays to get him away from stress and drama, and stayed for 8 days. What a wonderful decision that was! The cabin was absolutely beautiful! At first we weren't sure how he would handle the change away from the rest of the family for the holidays and thought not being in a familiar place wouldn't go well for him. After the first two days, we were worried that our getaway was a bad idea, as he seemed to have so much trouble adjusting. Suddenly on the third day he just transformed! We haven't seen him so calm and relaxed since he was a toddler! He kept commenting on how quiet it was there and how comfortable and peaceful he felt. Now he wants to come back EVERY year to do this. He said he much preferred this year to the commotion of the family get togethers and says he had the best time EVER! We stayed at the cabin all 8 days and I can say I still didn't want to leave! There was so much to do! We played board games from morning till night, watched movies, had smores, went for a nature walks, played foosball and ping pong, (Mom and Dad baked a private batch of cookies while son was in bed and enjoyed a batch of hot cookies by the fire all to ourselves :) ) and then we did a family cookie baking session the next day (we had to... there weren't any left from the night before. LOL)! We even made pancakes three times while we were there! We played the game cube Scooby game as a family and laughed and talked, read books and relaxed. It was like a treasure hunt, every time we looked in a new drawer or cupboard, we found new movies or more activities stashed away! It was so much fun just exploring the cabin! We cooked our dinners for the entire trip, and put them in the freezer the week before we left, so each night I just pulled one out of the freezer and popped it in the oven! Presto, a stress free dinner! The Christmas decorations they put up were beautiful and everything we needed was right there and more! We definitely over packed not realizing just how much was already there. Really hope we can come back again! I'd love to see it in ALL seasons! This place worked miracles on our family and our holiday. I can't remember ever having a holiday this nice! Thank you so much for sharing it with us!"
