GREAT COUNTRY SETTING JUST OUTSIDE THE CITY LIMITS ON 12 ACRES.

Photos and Description of this Kansas holiday house

Country House / Chateau, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths (Sleeps 6-11)

Tranquil setting just outside the city limits of Hutchinson, KS. Built on the west edge of a five acre pond. Great for fishing, swimming, or just laying back and relaxing. Located less than one mile from the Hutchinson Zoo, Hutchinson dirt bike/ATV track, Carey Park, and Carey Park Golf Coarse. Within two miles of the Hutchinson Downtown Shopping, The Mall and Mall 8 Theaters, Underground Salt Museum, Hutchinson Sports Complex, Cosmophere Space Center, Kansas State Fair Grounds, and many fine Dining Establishments. We could probably fill two or three pages of different things you can do while you are staying at the Pond a Rosa Inn, but you will have to come and stay to see what we are talking about.

Hunting: The Pond is just out the front door about 20 yards AND it is in the county and ducks and geese flock to it on a regular basis. Can't shoot in the city, but OK in the county. Don't miss out on this opportunity before it is GONE. We do allow pets and hunting dogs; JUST NOT IN THE HOUSE.

There are only 6 houses within a one half mile radius of the lodge and three of them belong to us. this means plenty of room to stroll around and relax. Play tennis on the tennis court or shoot some hoops on either of the two basketball goals. Go fishing, swimming, paddle boating, or just relaxing on the more than 100 yards of sandy beach area along the edge of the pond. We do offer paddle boat rentals, and horse back riding, or you might want to try out our zip line rides.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We stayed at the Pond-a-Rosa one day and night and were thoroughly relaxed even though we had a rough ride towing a trailer for more than 4 hours. The hosts were helpful and friendly so that we felt like we had come to a relaxing atmosphere including a comfortable home with nice furnishings and comfortable beds. The lake and beach were a great surprise, and we especially enjoyed the ducks, geese, and horses. A gentle breeze and the peaceful country setting made our outdoor supper into a good memory we shall enjoy. The location has easy access to many points of interest, a helpful plus! We would love to stay there again.

Owners are Randy Lubbers and LeAnna Doane who also run Lubbers Equipment Inc. of Hutchinson. We sell fertilizer equipment as our main business and operate the Pondarosa Inn as a second business.

Randy Lubbers purchased this house in 2010

These two properties are located on this pond and we decided if we owned the second property we could make sure we did not have any problems or conflicts with our neighbors. Also the house we live in was originally built as a bar which Randy had visited a few times when he was younger. It carried some sentimental value to him. It also has a very country atmosphere yet a convenient location close to shopping and dining. Which both of us enjoy very much.

LOOKS CAN BE DECEIVING.

  • 1 out of 5
What is not noticeable on the photos of this property is as follows. Very musty smelling. Over all not very clean, you could write messages in the dust on the furniture. Dust hanging on ceiling where AC and heat vents are. Dirt and crumbs in the cracks of the couch, had to lay blanket down brought from home before I sat down. Decon poison laying on the floor in closet, child safety issue. Main bathroom floor is so spongy from water damage you could fall through. Owner told us to leave basket of towels set over the worst area as a precaution. Kitchen refrigerator was not cleaned or wiped out, I had to clean two shelves to use. Microwave so stained you don't know if it is from burned on food or just dirty. Mold growing in coffee pot, coffee filter left with old grounds. We didn't cook anything didn't know what was clean to use. Windows don't open big fire hazard. Over all a very bad place to stay. We should have left the first night. If you want to rent I would stay away. When I rent a home we expect it to be in excellent condition and very clean. But this was not the case here. This review is very truthful. When we told him of our concerns he seemed shocked. I really wonder who wrote the other great reviews about the Pond a Rosa Inn.

Owner's Response: Guests can be deceiving.
I would have to say as a warning to other rental owners this customer said it all when they said they expected "excellent condition" for a place to stay. These renters did not say a word to us in regard to any problems until it was time to settle up and pay their bill. Yes we were shocked when they told us and then presented us with there list of discrepancies and demanded to only have to pay half of their total bill. If the conditions were as bad as they said WHY did they stay for TWO nights and only complain when it was time to PAY. I will let you decide for yourself.
As far as their complaints in this review I would say we prepared the house the same as always with the exception of forgetting to remove the coffee grounds from the coffee maker. "Our boo boo"
We had given warning to them about the floor being weak "NOT TO THE POINT OF BEING DANGEROUS" in the bathroom as a result of a water accident earlier and that the contractor just has not been there yet to repair it.
In this guests last statement "I really wonder who wrote the other great reviews about the Pond a Rosa Inn" they insinuate we and all of our guest that gave us great reviews were liars about the conditions of our place; again I will let you decide.

THE PLACE IS GREAT.

The house is clean and well maintained. The owners are on site so if you do have problems they are right there to help out. The lake was great and so were all the toys.

AWESOME!

  • 5 out of 5
We recently stayed at the Pond a Rosa Inn. The first night we stayed in the duplex. It was nice, clean, and comfy. Although we encounter a minor problem, Randy & LeAnna took care of it immediately. We had access to the pond and all the fun stuff. The next day we moved into the house and it was great. The girls had a blast on the zip lines, and our son had a relaxing stroll on "Butler" the horse. As a family we all enjoyed the diving board, water slide, and rope swing. We also had a nice time paddling around the pond and fishing. The only time we left the Pond a Rosa was to go grocery shopping. We sat on the patio and ate lunch while enjoying the view of the pond. We grilled supper almost every evening. Randy & LeAnna were very nice and did their best to make sure our time there was enjoyed by all of us. Randy even took the time to show all of us how to get the most enjoyment out of the water slide & rope swing. LeAnna was very good when she took our son for a horse ride. We have been telling our family and friends all about since we got home. Overall, it was a very relaxing family getaway and we are definitely going back. Thank you Randy & LeAnna!

WOW!

  • 5 out of 5
My family arrived to the place and we had a gathering of family from all over to visit us. We had easy access to all amenities and the owners were extremely friendly and hospitable. The house was clean and well cared for just as shown in the photographs online and there were home supplies provided such as dishes, silverware etc. The rope swing diving board and slide were tons of fun. The zip line and the paddleboats were enjoyable as well. Our daughters rode horses in the evening which was an amazing experience. Later each evening we sat by the fire pit talking and laughing while we enjoyed the cool evening breezes and the warm glowing fire. Our visit was not long enough, we would have loved to stay longer. We were so comfortable and treated so well, we will be back again and again.

Some very neat places to visit in the area are the Salt Mines, Zoo, and Cosmosphere. Downtown Hutchinson is beautiful old and quaint. A great place to eat while there is the Carriage House. Good food fresh baked goods etc.

FAMILY GATHERING AT THE PONDAROSA INN.

  • 4 out of 5
Our family of 6 adults and 5 children, ages 7 to 15, thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Pondarosa Inn. The kids' favorites were the tube slide (which they just flew out of) and the rope swing. Also high on the list was the zip line, paddle boats, horseback riding, playing basketball and using the fire pit. Water toys, floats and sand toys were provided. The house is close to Walmart and Target for grocery and other needs. We also checked out the nearby mall and took a tour of the salt mine museum. The salt mine is just a couple of minutes away and was enjoyed by our whole family!

Nine members of our group stayed in the big house and found accommodations very comfortable. My husband and I stayed in the duplex right behind the house, but other than sleeping, spent our time at the house or at the lake with our family.

Randy and Leann are great and do whatever they can to make your stay comfortable. I was impressed with their patience as they were teaching two of our inexperienced horseback riders and then giving us all the time we needed to get pictures of the kids on the horse.

Owner's Response: We are more than happy to accommodate our guests to make there stay at the Pond a Rosa Inn as comfortable, pleasant, and as fun as possible. We always look forward to seeing our guests come back time and time again. We try to encourage our guests to have as much fun as they want while we are improving our facility with walking trails, lighted swimming area, and a new covered beach area to sit in out of the sun while enjoying the water. Thank you for such a good review and we look forward to seeing you again.
