just returned from Twin Ponds and had a wonderful time. Karen and her entire family were great to deal with leading up to our time there but especially once we were there. They were all so attentive and helpful the entire stay. Don't know where to start. The house is amazing, clean, and comfortable. Well stocked with everything you could need. Love the steam shower and hot tub (which we made extensive use of). We did a fair amount of fishing and for the middle of August is was quite good. I caught a 5-6 lb bass and many crappies and sunfish. One of our main reasons for booking the house was to take our 11 year old lab with us on vacation as we generally go out of the country or somewhere he cannot go. With him approaching old age we wanted him to spend the week with us in the country. He loved it too. All the acreage to roam around on and he really liked the stream for some cool wading. we ate out a lot and reallly recommend Grico's. We ended up eating there twice as the Italian food was fantastic. Liked Sabatini's pizza but didnt get a chance to try the Old Forge style. Evenings in the hot tub were great, so quiet it doesnt feel like there is anyone around. If you want to relax and get away to a peaceful retreat, we would highly recommend Twin Ponds and the Carroll family.
