Bainbridge Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Serenity… Tranquility… Peace… slow down the pace and enjoy the canvas surrounding you.

What do you need? A Romantic getaway?... Family bonding time?... Painter’s paradise?... Writer’s retreat?... Spiritual or Youth Group retreat?... Large family reunion spot?

Our 'slice of Paradise' will accommodate all ages and interests!

Perfect location for Outdoor sporting adventure or Motorcycle touring “base camp”!

Midpoint between road trip destinations such as the nearby Finger Lakes Region, Syracuse, Niagara Falls, and Canada!

Convenient Home base for day trips to Cooperstown, Howe Caverns, local car shows, county fairs, state parks, antiquing, canoeing/kayaking the nearby Susquehanna River (General Clinton Regatta,) or fishing the nearby rivers & lakes.

Whether you are a couple, family of four, a large group, or have multiple grandkids with you, there is plenty of room to spread out!

This magnificent custom-built log home on 16 private acres of open meadow and woodland boasts a breathtaking view of the mountains and patchwork of distant farms that will steal your heart away.

Enjoy a commanding panoramic view just beyond our private pond from the outdoor deck, or indoors from the floor-to-ceiling windows of the spacious cathedral-style living room or choose the breezy solarium.

Let your inner child out while frolicking with the kids in/on the pond that’s big enough for a row boat, kayaks, or tubes. Swim off the dock and catch frogs between the cattails.

Set up your art easel or just relax on the two large outdoor decks.

Breathe in the crisp mountain air while taking a casual stroll around our beautiful meadows.Bird watch, or hike in the woods.

Simply curl up with a book or a fun family game beside the enchanting soapstone wood-burning stove. Challenge your family to a ping-pong tournament on our championship quality table or a game of darts.

Treat the kids to ice cream and an old fashioned double-feature movie at one of the last remaining drive-in movies in the country! Local shops, farmer's market, supermarket, and chain department store are convenient for groceries or forgotten supplies. Nearby restaurants, pubs, or diner are great for nights you aren't up for cooking in our well-equipped kitchen or barbecuing on the grill.

Bring your S'More-making kit for those tranquil nights stargazing at the Milky Way around the campfire ring. Pop up some tents for the grandkids to ‘rough it.’ You'll be serenaded by the crickets and bullfrogs, and guaranteed to sleep like a baby! You'll awaken to the melodic birds with a renewed appreciation for your family, your blessings, and creation. Deer grazing on the hill and wild turkeys crossing the meadow reward the early riser! It's a photographer's must!

Stay active or simply relax and do nothing. Time stands still and the rest of the world seems worlds away. So come make our home yours for a short stay or a long vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a marvelous time! The view is incredible and the small amount of snow that fell made everything more scenic. The sun was shining every day, making our hikes around the meadow very enjoyable.

We had a couple of cozy fires and enjoyed our family time in the living room watching the snow fall! (And playing poker!)

This beautiful cabin was the perfect spot for us to meet for a family holiday :)

Happy Thanksgiving!

MAGNIFICENT!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Three Ponds Retreat. My husband and I both grew up in the area and we travel back to visit family. This was the first time we did something other than a motel and we were completely thrilled with our experience. The home is clean and spacious. The property and panoramic views are magnificent! We spent most of our time in the kitchen and the screened in porch. The tap water is cold and delicious. The beds are comfortable. There is even a handy pulley clothesline. The lawn and pond are perfect for family fun. The handicap ramp was very helpful, as two people in our family can’t climb steps. The evenings are dark and quiet – with an occasional frog chorus. We were very excited to see lightening bugs again! We would choose to stay here again in a heartbeat and are grateful Don and Karen share their home through VRBO.

LOVELY FAMILY REUINON

  • 5 of 5
Just wanted to thank our hosts for a wonderful , relaxing family gathering.. More than enough room to accommodate both the out of town quest and to throw one awesome BBQ . Four generations gathered for a day of sun, fun and good food and later quiet evening enjoying the fire... we all were so pleased that the consensuses is to do it again this summer... The house was clean, spacious , and the view and grounds were exceptional..Our hosts pretty much thought of everything.. and were very pleasant when booking and making our arrangements. We loved the frog pond.. and the kids all loved the space.. Great find...Would definitely recommend a visit... Truly a little piece of paradise...

LOVELY PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a weekend to celebrate a friend's upcoming wedding and couldn't have had a nicer experience. The property is beautiful and relaxing, and the house is large and accommodating, even for a group as large as ours (10 people). We cooked a lot in the inviting kitchen and spent many hours lounging on both the screened in and outdoor porches. We would definitely come again!

FUN FAMILY TIME

  • 4 of 5
We stayed in this lovely house for a family vacation (six adults, three children). Our favorites included the spacy kitchen, the screened-in porch for playing games, the fire pit for camp fires and smores every night, searching for frogs near the pond, playing ping pong in the basement, and hiking the grounds. The house had books, games, floats for the pond, and firewood.

We took one day trip to Ommegang Brewery, the Baseball Hall of Fame, Farmers Museum, and more breweries/winery along the way back (that was our rainy day). On our last day we went to Bob's Diner for lunch and Nancy's Ice Cream Shoppe for dessert (both in Bainsbridge).

The two bedrooms on the main floor are a nice size. Note that the loft is open to the family room below (so whoever sleeps up there cannot close a door to whatever action may be happening below).

The pictures are accurate and the owners were quick to provide detailed information. The view from the house is beautiful. Great house for a family getaway!
