Amazing Family Getaway
My husband and I brought our 12 year old and 2 pups with us to the cottage on the pond for a long weekend and we had an amazing time.
We don’t want to leave!
Before coming I knew after the long drive from NY I wouldn’t want to cook our first night, so I asked Frank for suggestions on good pizza, we went with Meltong Pot and it was delicious.
My son spent all day kayaking, floating or swimming in the pond. Our pups enjoyed it too. We ended the evenings on a long walk with the dogs and there is just so much beauty down here.
The town is only 15 minutes away if you need to run to Walmart for anything. We planned on checking out the area but ended up only leaving the property for a quick Walmart run for snacks.
We will definitely be back again!
Thank you for everything!
A little slice of Heaven
Just spent an amazing weekend at this property with my wife and pup. I actually think our dog Sully had the most fun swimming all day and chasing his frisbee. The cottage is a perfect size and feels like a resort hotel room. If you are looking for a peaceful and private weekend look no further!
We needed some down time and this was perfect place to stay. While there are places nearby to visit we did not leave the property the entire four nights of our stay. Also, the night nature sounds are amazing! You cannot hear anything inside the cottage but once you step outside, it’s great! Family of two and one dog - highly recommend.
What an amazing, private retreat. Perfect for a couple but could work for a small family too.
The property is extremely private and the wildlife is a wonderful source of entertainment. Walked down by the Shenandoah river and took in the sights. Loved listening to the birds and frogs, watching turtles, pond skimmers, deer and hearing evidence of turkey. We were able to pick from very ample supplies of ripe wineberries (much like raspberries) on the sides of roads in the property. Those were delicious. Not sure what the season time-frames are for those. Used the hot-tub and fire pit and dined outside in the mornings and evenings most days. The bed was comfortable and romantic. The decor is very well done and charming. We stayed in during the heat of the day but the cool A/C worked well and we watched movies. Don't rely too much on the availability of kitchen staples as we felt things were about empty spice wise and there were no condiments. There is a Keurig if you want to bring some pods/cups. Walmart and other places to buy groceries are very close by so it might be a good idea to check into the cottage, check the supplies, then grocery shop. Totally plan on staying there again in the future.
Perfect, quiet getaway
The Pond House is perfect for a couple (and especially with a dog). The place is very well appointed, bed very comfortable, and the setting was ideal. In fact, for three days we never left the property. We took hour-long walks every morning and never took the same route twice. Acres of meadows, gravel roads along the river... gorgeous. And our dog loved the pond. We used the waterside fire pit, the hot tub, and the decks. Never felt the need to leave. Thanks for everything.
Picturesque valley...like being in a fairytale!
It was so peaceful and beautiful! We loved the sounds of nature and the unique rock formations. We saw birds, turtles, a groundhog, squirrels, bees, tadpoles, fish...and heard the frogs! The inside of the house was so cozy and cute. We had a wonderful time!
