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!
Little family getaway!
We came here for our 2 year wedding anniversary with our dog and little baby. We had a wonderful time just hanging outside and enjoying the sites. This place is so relaxing and beautiful. We will come back again soon.
Pure HAPPINESS, with Breathtaking Serenity!
Embrace all the quiet moments and absorb all that this place has to over. It's ONE of A KIND.
Your soul and spirit will be FULL and thank you. Here, you're able to disconnect from the world and concentrate on yourself, family time, rekindle a romance, or enjoy the outdoors. The O'Reillys are TOP NOTCH. The decor and touches of home are nice. I've stayed at another one of their properties before. Attentive, Responsive to emails and text messages, etc.
It truly is a HOME away from HOME. I stayed in April, where the pond was a bit cooler, but the fresh air of the valley made it ALL worth it. The rainfall shower works wonders for your skin. The bed downstairs feels like heaven.
If you truly want to feel at peace, GO! Don't hesitate! Don't overthink it. Just GO!
I stayed for two nights, but I could have stayed longer had time allowed. Luray Caverns is a nice drive away. The drive into town Front Royal is gorgeous and the closeness to civilization once you leave the private property is easy and convenient.
If you're looking for a Getaway to GET AWAY, then just GO!
Recharged the ol batteries! Loved it!!
Sean - this was exactly what we needed. SOOooo cool!!! Thank you for allowing us to have that weekend we were looking for.
Exactly what we needed!
Thank you for letting us use your home; we can't wait to come back!
