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.
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!
We had 3 families together for a long weekend getaway at Raystown (10 people/kids total). The house certainly fit our families well, but 2 adults did have to sleep in a double bed in one of the rooms. 2 twins could push together to make a 'king'. But the house was quite spacious - good areas for sitting, chatting, playing games, hanging out on the back deck, etc. The grill on the deck was really nice. We had 2 boats and 4 cars/trucks total with us and there was decent space for all with a bit of maneuvering. Backing boats up the last stretch of driveway was a little bit tricky, but there is a turnaround loop at the end of the driveway which really helped a lot. The kids loved the small size air hockey table and pool table in the rec room downstairs. This place was really close to the Snyder's Run boat launch which was great for the weekend - it allowed for quick back and forth to the lake whenever we wanted. Less than 3 minute drive to the water. Also it is close to Huntingdon with stores, restaurants, etc. We would be looking to stay here again for future vacation time.
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.
My friends and I (and our families) stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. The house was in a fantastic quiet location and easy to find. It had more than enough room for everyone and was exceptionally clean. I would definitely recommend staying here!
Had all amenities that your home would close to lake for people who bring smaller boats!
