August 2014 Raystown Fishing Trip

  • 3 of 5
Four adults chose this apartment for lodging because of it's location near the Juniata River and Raystown lake. The apartment was clean and as pictured, kitchen was well stocked, no spices, didn't use the electric stove so no comments. Disappointed with beds/not comfortable, no A/C in rooms - just one unit at end of apartment that cools whole apartment if you don't close bedroom doors at night. Access to Juniata River was through small campground and had a large rock that was easy to access and reached into the middle of the river.

This home is located directly across from the Juniata River, providing all the fishing opportunity you desire. The rental is spacious with amenities like a canoe, grill, outdoor deck (which makes a great place for dinner) and you can't beat the peaceful sound of the river at night lulling you sleep.
The close proximity to Raystown Lake, three caverns for exploration, Belleville, Thousand Steps and many mountain trails, and other "things to do" allows as busy a schedule as you want.
We came to fish and the Juniata River provided several entry points for many miles.
Raystown Lake provided the lake fishing, rentals of paddle boards, canoes, power boats, or bikes. Swimming beaches, too.
This place is perfect for the active family or couple who loves a country setting and animals.

Raytowns Lake Fishing Trip August 2014

  • 4 of 5
Four of us, two couples, stayed at this rental the day before our guided fishing tour on Raystown Lake. We were able to check in early so that we could drop our luggage, check out the place and then take off to explore and pick up some supplies. The apartment was as pictured and the kitchen and bathroom were well supplied for our needs. Our only complaint was could of been more lighting in bathroom like above sink and in the shower area and in some areas in the kitchen. The queen size bed was an find your own setting bedding which took us a bit to figure out. The double bed was uncomfortable for the other couple. The dog kennel was next door but the dogs were far enough away that the occasional barking didn't bother us and there was no odor. We would consider staying here again.

Commune with nature

  • 4 of 5
If you're looking for a place in the country with farm animals and a nice place to unwind, this is for you. I love any kind of animal, so I felt right at home! I did a lot of driving to find Raytown Lake entry points and saw a lot of pretty countryside. Found Belleville and really was amazed by the horse drawn buggies and Amish way of life. I would like to go back there again, especially on a Wednesday when they have an auction. Raytown lake and conference center has a lot of nice camping sites and cottages to rent. Nice place.

Very Accommodating Owners

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I wanted a short getaway to celebrate our first anniversary. Since we both love to fish, we decided on the Raystown Lake area. This house was perfect for us to walk right out and fish on the Juniata.
The house was very clean and comfortable.
But the most memorable thing for us was how the owners treated us like family. They are very friendly and went out of their way to make sure we had an enjoyable trip.
Besides fishing on the Juniata we took a guided fishing trip on Raystown. We also hike the Thousand Steps. We also recommend a drive up Rte 655 to enjoy views of the Valley which includes plenty of Amish farms and little shops to stop and shop.
We hope we can go back again next year!
