Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, Loft + Great room, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6-7)

The Mountain Pond House is a very unique property. It is located on the edge of a stocked, spring fed pond. There are two bedrooms with an additional queen size futon. This cottage is just the right spot to come relax, and enjoy the peace and quite. In the summer you hear the frogs and night creatures. There are deer aplenty and an occasional bear.

There are lots of things to do to help you get reconnected. There are 2 miles of mowed trails on the 125 acre property and walking sticks for hiking. The trail goes down by Walkers Creek. Fishing is really good in the 2 ponds. They have been stocked with bass and bream. If you feel real ambitious, you can go to Goshen Pass and go across the hanging bridge and hike up Jump Mountain. The Maury River and runs thru the pass and it is stocked with trout thru out the year.

The cottage is close enough to Lexington to visit all the historic sites.

Parents of the students at VMI, W&L and Southern University enjoy the Pond House and getting their kids away for a change. We are close enough to Natural Bridge and the Safari Park to make a fun day.

Just come and see for yourself. You will not be disappointed!

We had the perfect , relaxing time. It was everything that was promised and everything we expected and more. So very quiet and secluded but close to the things that you may want to see and do. We would definitely return. Thanks.

Wonderful country home!

  • 5 of 5

My son and I met up at the Mountain Pond House to spend some quality time together. We had a wonderful stay and enjoyed the fresh air and crystal clear night skies! It was peaceful, serene and had the most beautiful fall views that changed every time you looked out the windows facing the pond! Mr. Payne was very welcoming and informative about his property. The home was very comfortable with awesome rustic furniture. and appointments. This is the perfect place if you want to get away from it all, relax and enjoy each other's company. During our stay we were able to hike on the property, spend time in front of the outdoor fireplace and travel many country roads. We enjoyed day trips to Lexington, Natural Bridge State Park, Rockbridge Winery and Goshen Pass.

Mountain Pond House is in the country . We back up to the George Washington National Forest. You do not see any neighbors from the cottage. Most of the farms around raise cattle. There are lots of deer, turkey, bear, fox and birds. Great fishing and boating on the spring fed pond from the deck of the cottage. Peace, quite, privacy, relaxation, fishing hiking sightseeing, visit Historic Lexington, VMI, W&L, Natural Bridge, Safari Park, Zoo and Goshen Pass are here for your vacation! Just bring your food, camera and you are set.
