Nothing says "fantastic vacation" like this one-of-a-kind "Cottage by the Pond" in Ridgeway, South Carolina. This quaint, Southern 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom abode is bursting with character and charm, offering you and your loved ones the privacy, and serenity for a rejuvenating trip. Resting at the water's edge of a 13-acre pond, with large outdoor spaces for grilling and socializing, and a beautiful outdoor pool - you'll be able to soak up nature's endless beauty here!
From the moment you arrive, you'll be overwhelmed by nature's picturesque surroundings. Anticipate waking up each morning to the fresh country air and seeing clusters of soft white clouds against the bright blue sky while listening to the sound of the chirping birds that call this place their forever home.
Early morning is the perfect time to enjoy sitting outside on the large screened-in back porch to sip your coffee while peacefully watching the sun ascend into the unreachable sky. The truly unique "Cottage by the Pond" and all its surroundings is simply a one-of-a-kind find that is filled with eye-pleasing details including a large living room that allows you to share every exciting moment together and a spacious kitchen with a comforting family-style appeal, all surrounded by Southern-style country decor, numerous antiques and interesting memorabilia resting on a continuous wooden shelf that encircles the kitchen and living room - sure to prompt questions from the younger generation and bring back fond memories of a nearly forgotten place in time.
Everyone will love the convenience of being right at the water's edge of a private 13-acre pond with an extended walk out to a floating dock. Get ready to enjoy some relaxing time sport fishing or take an adventitious pedal boat ride to explore some of the wildlife that lives around and in the pond. Ready for some energetic fun? Challenge someone to a rousing round of ping pong to release any remaining stress as you begin to wind down and enjoy the true tranquility that you'll rarely find anywhere else.
Weather permitting, there is a commercial-sized swimming pool that is sure to provide an abundance of fun in the sun for everyone! When dinner time rolls around, fire up the gas grill and prepare some juicy burgers while you watch the gently moving waters of the pond mirror the colors of a slowly fading sun, creating lasting memories of another exciting day. As each fun-filled day ends, gather around the outdoor fire pit for an evening social and marshmallow roasting. Finally, when you and your companions are ready to call it a night, you'll find comfy accommodations in each room for a restful night's sleep.
If you're looking to get out and about, head to the nearby town of Camden, the oldest inland city and fourth oldest city in South Carolina, where you'll find an impressive inventory of antebellum homes, a vibrant history and the southern charm you hear about in stories. You'll find a great selection of dining and shopping spots not far from the home and nearby grocery stores so you can stock up on supplies. For golfers in your group, there are a number of fabulous courses within 30 miles of the home. There are enough options at the home and in the surrounding areas to keep every member of your party happy and entertained.
Certainly, in time, you'll find yourself returning to this one-of-a-kind private family retreat that is surrounded by nature's endless beauty and heartfelt warm, welcoming, Southern charm.

Once we got settled in...
The owner, very friendly, greeted me and showed me around the property.
Connecting to WIFI took some time.
The compressor was out on the A/C. She did have fans on to help with air circulation.
The pool had been closed down for the summer. She worked hard to get the pool open for future guests, but too late for us to enjoy.
The kennel (which we paid extra for) was pretty far away from the cottage and very close to the chicken coop. She requested to meet our dogs, then offered to let them stay in the laundry room.
As I mentioned, once we settled in, we enjoyed the beautiful property.
This was the perfect location for our first family vacation. Angelina could not have been a more gracious host. We felt welcome and she was available whenever we had any questions for her. This property is large and beautiful. The grounds are just picturesque and the lakes are fabulous. The children really enjoyed their time at the pool. The house itself is spacious and beautiful. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to have a wonderful relaxing time away from home.
