This modern vacation home has all of the comforts of home (Free Wifi, Cable, Gas Grill, Auto Drip Coffee) and will provide you, your family, and friends with many fond memories.
Lake Raystown is the fishing and boating capital of central Pennsylvania and is noted for 40-plus-pound striped bass and unlimited amounts of water for your fishing an boating pleasures. We have a private pond less than 75 yards from the driveway for great daytime fishing with the kids and serene evening strolls with the family.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the quiet, moonlit evenings by the fire pit or screened-in patio and fill your summer days with fishing, boating, and water activities on the lake. The Raystown region is also becoming well known for its super mountain bike trails. Fall and winters are filled with hunting, skiing, and trips to 'Happy Valley' to enjoy Penn State football. The Penn State stadium is a little over 45 minutes away.
My Otter Place is a very exclusive, secluded and spacious rental that is sure to provide you and your family & friends with many hours of fun-filled, relaxing pleasure. Reserve your vacation today - visit our website via the link below and contact us for more information.

About Jeff Potensky
Pennsylvanians by heart... Coast Guard family that has lived in Hawaii, Florida, Virginia and Maryland. Originally from just north of Pittsburgh and presently living in Holualoa, Hawaii.
Jeff Potensky purchased this House in 2005
Why Jeff Potensky chose Hesston
We fell in love with Raystown Country the first time we vacationed here in the late 90's. I frequently traveled from Virginia to the North Western woods of PA to visit my families camp located in Kennerdell, near Oil City. I finally stumbled across Raystown Lake that had all that PA could offer from the top notch striper and trout fishing, to herds of deer and an abundance of wildlife. The serenity of the Spring, Fall and Winter are indescribable, tranquil and majestic. Summers on the Lake are... well just come out and see for yourself... We'll see you on the lake...
What makes this House unique
My Otter Place is located just minutes from the gates of Seven Points recreational park, marina and boat launches. The home itself is in a very exclusive neighborhood that's cuddled away from all of the hustle and bustle of all the other campers and boaters. The back porch is screened in and within view of the campfire area. These quite evenings will instill wonderful family memories in all for many years to come.

My Otter Place was an absolutely wonderful place to stay. We had everything we needed and it was beautiful. The pond and walking path in the field below was lovely, the house is close to town, lots of space, beds were comfortable, we had wi-fi, cooked on the grill and everything was perfect! We will definitely stay again!!
Great location and beautiful setting. Interior was well-maintained and had everything you could ask for. Outside is going to need a little TLC soon...shrubs are getting overgrown and large weeds taking over some areas. It would be a shame to let such a nice place get out of hand.
Our family found it clean and neat. The beds were comfortable and extra sleeping space was available besides the three bedrooms. The screened in back porch provided tranquil dining. We loved the campfire. The owners were very accommodating. I would highly recommend this home away from home.
My Otter Place is a dream vacation home for all ages and any time of the year!!
My Otter Place was a dream vacation home!! It is wonderfully maintained and has all the comforts of home. The open living space allowed adults, teens and babies to be together. Our grandson loved the loft as his "Man Cave". The screened porch was our grand baby's favorite area. She was safe yet independent at 2 1/2. The kitchen was a cook's dream. All you need is food because it is equipped with every appliance, tool, pot or pan, dish, and gadget you could ever need. The grill was great!! And we spent lots of evenings around the fire ring making s'mores. We had beautiful weather and were able to be on the lake, but if it had rained there is a full selection of games, tv's and gathering areas. Bathrooms were huge and 3 large bedrooms. We didn't use the downstairs area only because our family prefers to be together. If we were to build a vacation home, we would definitely use My Otter Place as an inspiration!!

The house was set up up great. We had 3 couples and there was plenty of room. It was close to the lake and Lincoln Caverns. We really enjoyed our time.
Had a very relaxing time and quite stay. Lovely home.
Had everything we needed. Didn't get to use fire pit this visit maybe next time. Perfect getaway from big city. Great location, close to seven points.
