This historic home played a big part in the underground railroad system many years ago.

Evenings unwind, relax & enjoy the magical views of the ponds and creek from your private wooden hot tub and new creek side deck. If you time it right you may even get to see the new fawns playing in the pasture. Enjoy nature and all the wildlife in this peaceful setting with all the stars at night providing your backdrop.

During the summer months the fire flies put on a show just for your viewing pleasure and entertainment. Best seats in the house are the hot tub, back deck or front porch.

Take the opportunity to catch record breaking large bass & other fresh water fish from your own ponds. Nothin' better then grilling them up fresh right outside your back door on our large grill.

The kitchen provides another pond view with 20 acres of fields & forests for your scenery.

Our country kitchen comes fully stocked with some of the best cookware and china available. You will have fun cooking in your unique farm style kitchen.

Feeling elegant then serve up that gourmet meal in the beautiful antique dining room off of the kitchen. Enjoy your gastronomical delight in your formal dining room by peaceful candlelight.

Afterwards kick back on your own private deck with your private creek cascading past. Or take a stroll up to the outdoor table and chairs located between the second and third ponds and watch the creek go fast flowing by while you sip your coffee, beer or wine.

We have chairs placed here and there along the ponds and creek. All you need to do is find your favorite location to sit down, take a break, read or chat to your honey.

On the side of the house there is an old stone fireplace that you could even cook on top of. If you prefer there is a portable fireplace to enjoy the dancing flames in the cool of the evenings.

Our babbling brook will lull you to sleep every night in your spacious bedroom. Sip your morning coffee in bed while watching the wildlife on the pond directly outside your bedroom window. The beautiful Magnolia Bedroom set provides you with a romantic Queen Bed and a heavenly new mattress for the best night sleep imaginable. It has been rumored that particular mattress is compatible of just sucking you in for the night where you don’t even move a muscle before the sun starts coming up in the morning.

Nightstands are both equipped with reading lamps, in case you both would like to do a little reading before the romancing begins.

In the corner of the room is a beautiful Secretarial Desk and book shelf in case you brought your laptop & want to email your friends to let them know how much fresher, younger and happier you are feeling at Twin Ponds.

The big plus is a large walk in closet with built in luggage bench. There is an ample supply of robes & hangers along with an ironing board, iron and laundry baskets. Also provided are the finest linens, towels and down comforters.

Freshen up in your 2 person steam shower while looking out at the large pastures. Or relax and soak in our antique tub and enjoy a view of the pond.

Slip outside your front door and take a gander at your living room window. It will bring back nostalgic memories of the Christmas Movie's famous “Major Award”. Probably the first time in your life that you will get to see it up close and personal, lit up at night from the outside. (Yes, I'd like to break it too.)

What ever you do don’t shoot your eye out with the Daisy Red Rider hanging over the kitchen door for safe keeping.

The spacious living room provides piano players an opportunity to bang out some tunes on our beautiful Steinway Grand Piano complete with ivory keys. Or simply cuddle up and relax on the comfy living room furniture while you settle in and watch a great movie from your own huge video library.

There is a small outdoor kennel and private field for training bird dogs if your loyal companion is traveling with you. Also dog beds, toys and bowls inside. Our 4-legged friends are all welcome provide no dog hair is ever left behind.

Below is a full description of the 6 rooms in your own private farmhouse, Twin Ponds. There is a pile of stuff to do around our area with links on our website or just come and hang out and fish if you like. On the bottom there are additional vacation rentals we also have available.

Best wishes,

Entrance

Dining Room

Crave even more elegance? You can enjoy your gastronomical delight in your antique formal dining room by candlelight.

Living Room

Slip outside your front door and take a gander at your living room window. It will bring back nostalgic memories of the Christmas Movie's famous full size leg lamp. Probably the first time in your life that you will get to see it up close and personal, lit up at night from the outside. (Yes, I'd like to break it too.)

A spacious living room provides piano players an opportunity to bang out some tunes on our collectors Steinway Grand Piano. Or simply cuddle up and relax on our oversize living room furniture while you settle in and watch a great movie from your own video library.

Bedroom

Enjoy a babbling brook which will lull you to sleep every night. Our beautiful New Magnolia Bedroom set provides you with a romantic Queen Bed with a heavenly new mattress for the best night sleep imaginable. Wake up and sip your morning coffee in bed watching the wildlife on the pond right outside your bedroom window.

Nightstands are both equipped with reading lamps, in case you both would like to do a little reading before the romantic starts.

Perhaps you saved that complimentary bottle of wine for just this moment? (Or maybe she drank it all herself when you arrived and ran off to fish?)

A beautifully restored desk in the corner converts to a wonderful make-up table with a mirror. The big plus is a large walk in closet with built in luggage bench. Of course ample hangers, ironing boar, iron etc.

Provided are the Finest linens, towels and down comforters along with Comfy robes.

2 Private bathrooms:

1. Master Bedroom Bathroom has an antique soaking tub.

2. Full bathroom provides a modern glass steam shower which has a sitting bench for 2, 24 spray jets, also rain and hand held showers all in one.

We raise puppies on our own property and currently have a fantastic selection of Portuguese Water Dog Puppies that will be available for new homes in December. Our website http://pwdpuppies.com

We also have a unique vacation getaway adventure in Quebec, Canada on our own private 90,000 acre lake that you have all to yourself if you really want to get away from it all: http://lacperdu.com

Oceanfront 3 acre estate in the Outer Banks of NC:

Also in the Heart of Duck we have a second Victorian Estate: http://thesaltaire.com

There is a neat old fireplace outside. Enjoy a nice nighttime fire or a chilly day and hot chocolate afternoon. There is lots of firewood everywhere for you to gather up and put into it.

The new wooden propane hot tub up by the second pond smells like cedar because it is a cedar hot tub. Please keep it topped off and do not let it get below the inlets. The temperature control for it is up on the deck to it at eye level. Only turn it ONE NOTCH one way or the other to lower it or make it hotter.

Fishing is great in all 3 ponds and you probably can’t fail if you use worms. The creek has some native trout.

The Big Screen Smart TV is in the living room with Cable TV. However the TV in the bedroom is not connected to the cable. There is a VCR and CD player built into the TV in the bedroom with a nice selection of CD’s and VCR Tapes. There are lots of good books as well.

Between the creek and the water system, which flows through the house, you will hear the pretty sound of water running. It should lull you to sleep at night.

The entrance part of the kitchen floor is cold because it was part of the Underground Railroad with a hidden room under there and not part of the basement. The basement and second floor are locked out. You have all 6 big rooms are on the first floor to enjoy.

Appletree Restaurant with good home cooking is at the bottom of Appletree Road on your left. They are located than a mile down the street. They are closed on Mondays. There are some outside tables and they don’t mind when we bring a dog with us.

Across from Appletree Restaurant is the street is the State Boat Launch. Also up river they have canoe and kayak trips.

Turn left and go about 2 miles for a very small grocery store and gas station on your right. Across the street from this grocery store is Bartolai Winery. You can check on line at: http://www.bartolaiwinery.com/id66.html for any entertainment nights.

A larger grocery store & PA Liquor Store is about 6 to 7 miles. Drive down to the

This return visit was just as relaxing and restful as our 1st cozy-wintry visit in Dec2016. The house was again spotless and very comfortable; we slept very well in the cool mountain air. Everything we needed (aside from food) was provided inside and out. I was even able to make & bake a homemade lemon meringue pie in the well equipped kitchen. The large gas bbq/smoker outside was also put to good use. We caught and released a few nice sized bass from the ponds and hiked the trails at the near by Frances Slocum Park over the few days. Watching momma deer and her 2 fawns up on the hill from the deck with our morning coffee was so neat. We enjoyed the nightly sparkling firefly show in the evening too. We actually recorded the sounds of the frogs and Brook in the evening to remind us of this great trip.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Cheers,

The hosts were so nice and helpful with anything that we needed. We enjoyed all this property had to offer from fishing to piano playing (although it would've been nice if we could've caught some bigger fish to eat!). If you're looking for a private romantic get-a-way, twin ponds is the place to go!

The two ponds and the acres of open space make for beautiful views from the porch. Although secluded, it has more than adequate access to surrounding towns and services.

                                                                      The owners couldn't have been nicer. The had everything ready to go when we arrived, were flexible on arrival and departure times, and grilled a lunch for us near the lake on their property. Inside the house is appropriately decorated with all the utensils and other items to make for a comfortable stay.

                                                                      I'm sure that we'll be back soon.

                                                                      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.

                                                                      Thanks Karen
