It's the second time we came so far away to stay in this place. The house is very nice and comfortable and has everything we need.
We loved it the second time as much as the first time
We stayed at 3 ponds retreat twice within 2 months and we enjoyed ourselves again.
We took some rides out of the area to other small towns and the scenery all over is beautiful.
The owner was so nice to supply new pots and pans for our stay and it helped to make our meals there great.
Don and Karen really care about their rental property and it is equipped with all the comforts you need to have a wonderful vacation.
Looking at the pretty view never gets old.
Get away to the country
Truly a home away from home it was a great place to get away from it all. Beautiful views, cool mountain breeze at night, and a place to relax!
Great property - all around!
The property and home were really just perfect. We had a full house - 6 adults and 10 kids, and we felt like we had plenty of space and were all very comfortable. The kids LOVED it! My son loved the ping pong table and wanted to play constantly. The yard and pond were great. Actually, I think the kids spent the most time on the paddle boat in the pond. We couldn't get them out of it!
Quiet Scenic and Relaxing
We enjoyed our vacation at the 3 ponds retreat so much. It was one of the quietest spots that we ever vacationed at. The house was more than comfortable for us, and our dog enjoyed the walks around the property too.
The owners seemed to care about our comfort and when we called they were very responsive.
This house is not a party house, and Bainbridge is a quiet town.
We are retirement age and for us it was just perfect.
We stayed here for a week while our boys were in Cooperstown playing a baseball tournament. The only complaint is that we didn't have more time to enjoy at the property. The house was plenty spacious for a group of families to stay. The pond was so much fun for the kids ... swimming, fishing, paddle boating. The kids also had a fantastic time on property playing manhunt, ping pong, and just relaxing. The house itself was very clean and welcoming. Everything we needed is provided - linens, towels, cookware. It's off the main road and a bit secluded, but that is what makes this place amazing ... like your very own secret hideaway. We hope to return at some point.
Only a short drive to Cooperstown All-Star Village...America's Premier Youth Baseball Experience!
