About Patty and Scott Gardner
Hi! We're Patty and Scott Gardner, of Carpe Diem Farm. I, Patty, actually grew up in a home on the other end of McCormick Road but moved to New Jersey for my career. Scott and I spent many holidays driving by Pond House to visit my family. Over the years, we simply fell more in love with this property each time we drove by it. One lucky day the property came up for sale and shortly thereafter, we became its owners. As our second home, we come to Pond House to relax and to enjoy country life. Now our love of nature, hiking, and spending time near water is available to us year round.
Patty and Scott Gardner purchased this Farmhouse in 2011
Why Patty and Scott Gardner chose Brackney
We consider it our lucky day when we were fortunate enough to become the owners of Pond House . We knew it was a special place, but had no idea just how wonderful it could make someone feel. The perfect blend of nature and convenience makes Pond House the "no worries" place for us to relax and to play. We know that once you experience the property, you will love it too.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
The pond adds a big dose of serenity to the farm. During warmer weather, our three tier back deck is a perfect place to dine and to relax while viewing the pond and nature. The pond is wonderful for swimming or to simply sit by and have an intimate conversation. The ceramic chiminea set up alongside the pond with a couple of torches makes a perfect spot to relax in a lounge chair and gaze up at the night sky. Relaxation and rejuvenation best describe the Pond House experience.

Welcoming retreat house
Loved this charming, cozy home in the woods for our visit to Binghamton. Perfect for our family stay. Well-appointed. Owners are VERY responsive and care a lot about you having an optimal experience. Will definitely stay here again if we are up this way!!!
Very nice, quiet area.
Very nice house in a very serene area of upstate New York. Owners were very pleasant, easy to deal with and incredibly responsive. I wish that there had been a bathroom on the second floor.
The home is actually in Pennsylvania about 2 miles from the New York State border.
clean and cozy
I truly enjoyed the grounds and the quiet surroundings. The bed was extremely comfotable. The lock box to get in was a little more difficult than I anticipated. Very enjoyable place to stay.
Peaceful stay away from it all.
This home is very clean and peaceful. The area is beautiful and well maintained. We appreciated that linens and towels were included and fresh! Our children, 9 and 5, loved the pond and house. When needed the internet was fast and reliable. We took a scenic hour drive to Ithaca for a day-highly recommend that as well. It is in the country so take bug spray in the summer (which was also kept at the home). But very comfortable.
Fantastic location - Highly recommended
What a beautiful home and gorgeous landscape! The house was extremely clean, comfortable and offered all the necessary amenities to make a vacation worthwhile. The grounds are impeccably cared for and stunning. I would come back here in a heart beat! Would highly recommend this home to anyone that is looking for a quiet, tranquil place to relax and enjoy nature and time off.
Exactly as described
The home is very clean, tidy and well maintained. And as described, the setting is lovely and tranquil. I really appreciated Patty checking in with us prior to our stay to make sure we knew how to get there and asking us if we wanted the extra beds made or linens set out. It's little things like this that make a stay great!
Thanks for staying at Pond House, Suzy. I'm so glad you enjoyed the stay. You were wonderful guests.
