Beautiful home, amazing views, quiet clean lake...

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing Balch Pond for three years and we are never disappointed. This year our rental exceeded our expectations. Meticulous home that has everything you need and then some. Great pride shows throughout this home and continues to the outside. Nothing has been overlooked, sandy beach area, quiet sitting area, great dining area and amazing landscaping and lighting. Two porches and a great room that will take your breath away. Boat dock with paddle boats, canoe, kayak, life jackets, etc. All that on a clean, quiet family lake. Simply one of our best vacations yet.

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week long stay at this property in mid July. The house is clean, roomy and so well appointed....we did not want for anything at all. The owner, Tim, is very helpful and honest and was a pleasure to do business with. I highly recommend this property if you want to do some pleasure boating & fishing or just relaxing. It's a great spot and the gardens are an added bonus! Lots of birds and wildlife to enjoy!
