About Dianne Ake

This warm and restful vacation home has been in our family for 30 years. We have always enjoyed the recreational opportunities offered at Lake Raystown and the convenient location close to the Huntingdon historical district and Penn State University. Eight years ago we decided to open the home to others interested in visiting the area. It has been our pleasure to receive many expressions of thanks for an enjoyable vacation of relaxation and fun while staying at Laurel Woods Retreat.

Spacious house for the entire family

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful spacious house with room for the whole family. We have three sons who brought their families and we had plenty of room for everyone to spread out. We loved the big dining area and screened in porch. We built a fire every evening as we played cards together while the children watched cartoons in the den area. Plenty of parking and room for the boat. The kitchen was totally equipped for our cooking needs. Thanks for a great space to vacation!

Tucked away

  • 4 of 5

The setting is wonderful, peaceful, and quiet. The house has everything you need for a memorable vacation. The boat launch area was full with no parking left, but the property is close enough that we were able to park the trailer back at the residence and walk to the launch.

Great Getaway Near the Lake

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a long weekend at Raystown Lake and our first stay at Laurel Woods, and it was amazing! There were 3 families and we had a ton of room. The house was very clean, and it had everything needed for us to prepare meals with. We loved how close we were to Snyder Run Boat Launch, which was very convenient for us kayakers. The grocery store was right down the road. This was such a great getaway location for a relaxing weekend on the lake! We would definitely come back!
