Weekend with the guys

  • 5 of 5

Our group of about 10 had a great time at the cabin! Love how close to Carbondale you are while at the same time being secluded from town. Great deck for summer time and everything you need for cooking, grilling, etc.

Cabin by the Pond - GREAT!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th annual trip to Cabin by the Pond, and we've already booked for this year.

Our group includes a wheelchair bound individual, and we are extremely thankful for the accessible accommodations. The "cabin" is more of a house with plenty of room. We especially enjoy preparing meals in the spacious kitchen and eating in the dining nook. The site is secluded and peaceful - early morning hours are serene and the deck is the ideal spot to view the sunrise over the trees surrounding the pond. The calming effect of the water fountain in the middle of the pond cannot be overstated. The location is ideal as you are minutes from shopping and within a short distance to the wine trails and parks. The owner is very accommodating and responsive to our needs.

Carbondale Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Our group of 9 adults and 3 children really enjoyed this property. Highlights included the private beach and pond, the basement game room and the large deck which connects to a wrap around porch. The laundry works as does the TV and the kitchen included an oven/stove and a microwave. There is no dishwasher. For the size of our group, we could have used more dishes as we sometimes had to drink coffee in shifts. The ad says it sleeps 10 but it is more like a comfortable 8 unless you have people willing to share or double up. The owner was easily reachable and very helpful. On the whole, it was a great value for the price and we were very happy. We would definitely go back!

The perfect "All in One" Vacation house.

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in a few vacation rentals, and this one was our favorite. Most places are set up like a hotel, with the few amenities that you need to get by. This was like a home away from home. It has everything you need. All the dishes and appliances that you need, as well as books, games, magazines, etc. The pond water is actually blue, which gives it a great tropical feel, and the fountain makes the most wonderful and peaceful waterfall sound all day. There is a paddleboat, canoe, and kayak on the beach, as well as the large boat in the photo. The large boat is fun for the kids to play in and pretend to drive, and even has a card table and couch inside. The beach area was so much fun, that the kids didn't want to do anything else. The beach and pond are private to the cabin, so you don't have to share them with anyone else. The cabin and pond are totally surrounded by trees and very private. It was wonderful to just sit on the upper deck and enjoy the scenery. The owner was very nice! He told us about all of the things to do in the area, and even drove his army jeep back and let my boys sit in it for a picture. We will be coming back next year!!
