Let your inner child out while frolicking with the kids in/on the pond that’s big enough for a row boat, kayaks, or tubes. Swim off the dock and catch frogs between the cattails.

Set up your art easel or just relax on the two large outdoor decks.

Breathe in the crisp mountain air while taking a casual stroll around our beautiful meadows.Bird watch, or hike in the woods.

Simply curl up with a book or a fun family game beside the enchanting soapstone wood-burning stove. Challenge your family to a ping-pong tournament on our championship quality table or a game of darts.

Treat the kids to ice cream and an old fashioned double-feature movie at one of the last remaining drive-in movies in the country! Local shops, farmer's market, supermarket, and chain department store are convenient for groceries or forgotten supplies. Nearby restaurants, pubs, or diner are great for nights you aren't up for cooking in our well-equipped kitchen or barbecuing on the grill.

Bring your S'More-making kit for those tranquil nights stargazing at the Milky Way around the campfire ring. Pop up some tents for the grandkids to ‘rough it.’ You'll be serenaded by the crickets and bullfrogs, and guaranteed to sleep like a baby! You'll awaken to the melodic birds with a renewed appreciation for your family, your blessings, and creation. Deer grazing on the hill and wild turkeys crossing the meadow reward the early riser! It's a photographer's must!

Stay active or simply relax and do nothing. Time stands still and the rest of the world seems worlds away. So come make our home yours for a short stay or a long vacation.

Excellent secluded getaway opportunity! Convenient to Cooperstown All Star Village for baseball tournaments.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a marvelous time! The view is incredible and the small amount of snow that fell made everything more scenic. The sun was shining every day, making our hikes around the meadow very enjoyable.

We had a couple of cozy fires and enjoyed our family time in the living room watching the snow fall! (And playing poker!)

This beautiful cabin was the perfect spot for us to meet for a family holiday :)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Great property - all around!

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great house!!!

  • 5 of 5

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.
