Phenomenal value for the price.

  • 5 of 5

The house is well furnished with plenty of space. From the outside, it was almost deceiving with how much room there was. For the group of ten I came with, we all slept comfortably around the numerous bedrooms and very comfortable couches that were available. We brought a ton of utensils, paper towels, linens, none of which were even needed. This spot came stocked with everything you could possibly need for a getaway on a lake house.

There were two kayaks, two canoes, a pedal boat, and a sunfish, all of which we used to the full potential. The "pond" is no small body of water. Kayaking around the perimeter can take almost 45 minutes; its more like a small lake. Ample life jackets were available so everyone could enjoy themselves safely.

The grill was great and propane was stocked. Almost all our meals were cooked on it. For breakfast, we capitalized on the many cooking pans, pots, etc, that were provided.

Finally, I should mention that the fire pit was a big attraction for the group, so having firewood supplied was excellent.

The only downside was that mosquitos and bugs were out in full force. This was something we weren't prepared for but we managed.

Overall, an excellent venue for a weekend getaway. Highly recommended and will likely book again in the future.

Perfect Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of spending a week at the Pond house, this house was perfect for our family vacation! The house has everything you need to feel at home from fantastic views to the many amenities for an awesome stay. There were ten of us and the spaciousness of the home was ideal for all of us.

We spent most of our days swimming, kayaking and canoeing and just sitting around the lake enjoying the beautiful views. In the evenings, we all fit comfortably around the kitchen table playing cards and board games. I can’t say enough about Carl, he was very accommodating and extremely pleasant to work with. I would definitely rent this home again and would highly recommend this home to anyone who is looking for a quiet getaway on the water, you will not be disappointed!!

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this lake house. Very private and very quite and right on the water. We are a family of 5 and there was more than enough room, could easily have had a couple more stay with us. The house has everything you need. Very enjoyable and relaxing vacation, did a lot of kayaking, hiking, relaxing on the deck listening to the loons. Close to a few towns so easy access for shopping, eating out and just walking around to get get ice cream.

Beautiful viewpshire.

  • 4 of 5

The house is lovely and we went to sleep every night the sound of loons. Our only complaint was there were a lot of ants! We scrubbed every surface and vacuumed multiple times and still couldn't seem to break the cycle.

Owner's Response: I have put out any traps. This is a house in the forest and we sometimes get various critters from ants to bears.

Simply magical!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for two nights with a group of friends over Halloween weekend, and we all could not be more pleased! The house itself is in the most beautiful, private spot near the end of a dirt road. The leaves were beautiful, the pond was still and peaceful, and despite a rainy and chilly weekend, we made use of the 2 kayaks and the canoe, and had a lovely paddle around the misty pond, with mountains peaking through the fog as we rowed!

The house itself is much larger than it even appears on the outside, with plenty of comfortable spaces for even our large group. The kitchen floor, with the den, the woodstove, the long dining table overlooking the porch (with a propane heater, which we didn't utilize, but wish we could have!) was the perfect area for board games, tarot reading and collaborative cooking. The kitchen is truly a cook's kitchen, and had almost everything we needed for two solid days of cooking (except a ladle? It seems impossible that there isn't one - we probably just couldn't locate it, because Carl has literally every other possible culinary tool you could want). The whole house is clean, modern, extremely comfortable, and has a warm, lived-in energy that made everyone feel relaxed and at ease the entire weekend. Also, there is foozeball AND ping pong.

We can't wait to come back, on a hopefully less rainy weekend, as the outside spaces were fantastic as well! There's a sitting area near the pond with a chiminaria and benches and a picnic table. And there's also a large fire pit area next to the dock, which was the perfect spot for a Halloween bonfire!

And...there's a smoker! We didn't utilize this either, but look forward to hopefully coming back soon!

Overall, I could not more highly recommend this house, and the owner, who was prompt and clear in his communications, and whose ownership has left the Pond House with a really quite wonderful vibe! It was everything we could've asked for, and we can't wait to come back!

Thank you, Carl!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the thoughtful review. We take great pleasure in hearing from people who love the Pondhouse as much as we do. I wonder what happened to the ladle??
