QUAINT 6 ROOM FARMHOUSE WITH 3 PRIVATE PONDS, CREEK & HOT TUB.

Harding Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 2, 1 Bedroom, 2 Bathrooms, Dining, Living & Kitchen with cedar hot tub.

Twin Ponds is a newly renovated, elegantly decorated, peaceful country homestead that will get you away from it all. Best of all you have it all to yourself!

This historic home played a big part in the underground railroad system many years ago.

Evenings unwind, relax & enjoy the magical views of the ponds and creek from your private wooden hot tub and new creek side deck. If you time it right you may even get to see the new fawns playing in the pasture. Enjoy nature and all the wildlife in this peaceful setting with all the stars at night providing your backdrop.

During the summer months the fire flies put on a show just for your viewing pleasure and entertainment. Best seats in the house are the hot tub, back deck or front porch.

Take the opportunity to catch record breaking large bass & other fresh water fish from your own ponds. Nothin' better then grilling them up fresh right outside your back door on our large grill.

The kitchen provides another pond view with 20 acres of fields & forests for your scenery.

Our country kitchen comes fully stocked with some of the best cookware and china available. You will have fun cooking in your unique farm style kitchen.

Feeling elegant then serve up that gourmet meal in the beautiful antique dining room off of the kitchen. Enjoy your gastronomical delight in your formal dining room by peaceful candlelight.

Afterwards kick back on your own private deck with your private creek cascading past. Or take a stroll up to the outdoor table and chairs located between the second and third ponds and watch the creek go fast flowing by while you sip your coffee, beer or wine.

We have chairs placed here and there along the ponds and creek. All you need to do is find your favorite location to sit down, take a break, read or chat to your honey.

On the side of the house there is an old stone fireplace that you could even cook on top of. If you prefer there is a portable fireplace to enjoy the dancing flames in the cool of the evenings.

Our babbling brook will lull you to sleep every night in your spacious bedroom. Sip your morning coffee in bed while watching the wildlife on the pond directly outside your bedroom window. The beautiful Magnolia Bedroom set provides you with a romantic Queen Bed and a heavenly new mattress for the best night sleep imaginable. It has been rumored that particular mattress is compatible of just sucking you in for the night where you don’t even move a muscle before the sun starts coming up in the morning.

Nightstands are both equipped with reading lamps, in case you both would like to do a little reading before the romancing begins.

In the corner of the room is a beautiful Secretarial Desk and book shelf in case you brought your laptop & want to email your friends to let them know how much fresher, younger and happier you are feeling at Twin Ponds.

The big plus is a large walk in closet with built in luggage bench. There is an ample supply of robes & hangers along with an ironing board, iron and laundry baskets. Also provided are the finest linens, towels and down comforters.

Freshen up in your 2 person steam shower while looking out at the large pastures. Or relax and soak in our antique tub and enjoy a view of the pond.

Slip outside your front door and take a gander at your living room window. It will bring back nostalgic memories of the Christmas Movie's famous “Major Award”. Probably the first time in your life that you will get to see it up close and personal, lit up at night from the outside. (Yes, I'd like to break it too.)

What ever you do don’t shoot your eye out with the Daisy Red Rider hanging over the kitchen door for safe keeping.

The spacious living room provides piano players an opportunity to bang out some tunes on our beautiful Steinway Grand Piano complete with ivory keys. Or simply cuddle up and relax on the comfy living room furniture while you settle in and watch a great movie from your own huge video library.

There is a small outdoor kennel and private field for training bird dogs if your loyal companion is traveling with you. Also dog beds, toys and bowls inside. Our 4-legged friends are all welcome provide no dog hair is ever left behind.

We love the country and are thrilled to give others the opertunity to experience what we get to enjoy everyday.

Karen Carroll purchased this farmhouse in 2012

Unlike your typical B & B you get the entire home all to yourself. So it is the B with out the Breakfast. But you have your own private kitchen to cook up anything you want any time you would like it.

Two full bathrooms is another plus. No waiting.

Fantastic Fishing, no liciense needed.

Wildlife Galore.

Having your own home and space to do whatever you like when you want to do it. Plus Lots and Lots of Fresh Air.

Amazing Anniversary Weekend

Amazing anniversary weekend

Our stay at Twin Ponds farmhouse was exactly what we needed—a romantic weekend of pampering and overdue relaxation time. We treated ourselves to some wonderful foods, drinks, and conversations while enjoying the homes many amenities like the big screen TV and the sauna. At night, we fall asleep to the sounds of the stream flowing outside our window; soooo soothing.

When we did venture outside, it was to soak in the wood hot tub; which Karen and Mike were so kind to setup for us earlier than usual. We even took a soak during an ice storm and must say the experience was magical!

Our dog also enjoyed her time in the country. She loved running in the large open field, she even rolled around in the deer dropping—for some reason they were irresistible to her. The property is located on a large piece of land which includes two ponds, a stream, and a large open field that is away from the road so it we felt safe letting her off leash.

Thank you again Karen and Mike for being so accommodating and throwing in an extra night stay. We really appreciate it and will be back!
Owner's Response: Thanks again for choosing Twin Ponds for your early spring get a way. You got to experience both spring and winter during the same trip. Never expected 5 or 6 inches of snow in April I bet.

Hope to see you both again for the summer season.

Best wishes,
Karen & Mike

My husband and I stayed here for our first anniversary and it was wonderful! The home has so much charm and character that it was hard to leave. Everything essential was provided, and we enjoyed the grand piano and wooden hot tub. The owners were very thoughtful and provided anything we needed. We will be back!
Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review. Hoping you can return every year for your anniversary.

Best wishes for a great holiday season.

I COULD LIVE HERE!!!

Once again another impeccable visit to Twin Ponds. What a beautiful and magical place. So serene and peaceful. The owners are very gracious and I'm sure would quickly solve any problems, but I didn't have any. It is still nice to see them and reconnect. They have become like family, especially since Twin Ponds is my second home. I've stayed several times. I haven't visited in the warmer weather yet but I hope to soon. I use Twin Ponds as my alone retreat but it would accommodate couples quite nicely. My favorite part is the Steinway piano. When I bought my new home recently, I modeled my kitchen after the one at Twin Ponds because the decor is so lovely. There is a Starbucks and a Wegmens within 30 minutes of Twin Ponds so even though you get to enjoy a remote location, you still have the creature comforts that you are accustomed to. Please give some thought to setting up your own retreat. You won't be sorry..
Owner's Response: Thanks for always coming back. Hope to see you this summer.
Cheers and Happy Holidays,
Karen & Mike

Great getaway!

My husband and I had a great time here! We came for a long weekend and couldn't be happier with the house and grounds. Karen and Mike were very easy to work with, and we didn't lack for anything while we were here. The three ponds, stream, meadows, and the rest of the property are so incredibly pretty! This house would be great for a couple or small family. And the restaurant down the street, The Appletree Restaurant, was quite tasty too! Overall, I would highly recommend this house, and my husband and I hope to come back again soon.

House and grounds were very well-maintained and clean!
Owner's Response: Pleasure having you both stay at Twin Ponds. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope you will come back so I can see your new bundle of joy after they are born. Mike had no clue what you meant by you were getting a visitor in Feb. How funny.

Thanks again for choosing Twin Ponds.

Private and Relaxing Getaway

We had a great time at Twin Ponds. The house and property were better than described, everything was clean and Karen was great to work with. There was plenty of space in and out of the house. Although it has one bedroom, unlike a cottage, there is a full kitchen (which was fully stocked), living room, dining room and two bathrooms. It was great hearing the stream right outside the window and sitting on the porch overlooking the property. We would recommend this property to others and look forward to coming again.
Owner's Response: Thanks for all the nice compliments. Glad you had a great time.

What a beautiful baby you have.

Take care and see you soon I hope.

Sincerely,

Karen & Mike
