One Bedroom, One and a Half Bathrooms Sleeps Four

A Perfect Fantasy Escape. 650 sq ft Cottage is beautifully secluded on 10 acres with a private pond. Sit in the hot tub and watch the waterfall cascade into a rock pool and flow into a beautiful 15,000 sq/ft lined swimming pond...or sit in the rock pool under the waterfall and you will think you must be in Hawaii.The expansive lanai and deck are perfect for catching the sun; alfreco dining under the stars; hanging out with friends; reading your favorite book...you name it and it will be as good as anything you've imagined. The beach has a zero depth entry for lounging or playing in the water. Inside this gem you will find everything you need for a delightful stay: From the leather lounge and viking bed you can watch the fireplace or the large flat screen TV to the rainfall shower with natural stone and tile. Only a two minute walk from the scenic Shenandoah River. Skyline Drive, hiking and biking trails, 100 holes of golf, shopping, restaurants only 10-20 minutes away!

We loved the house, but the beds will keep us from going back

  • 3 of 5

We loved this cottage, the privacy, location to hiking, trails, and the river. The stone pond and waterfall were a very nice touch. I have to say, for the detail that was put into the house, the beds were terribly uncomfortable. Everyone in our group suffered from the uncomfortable beds and it was noticeable. If it weren't for the beds, I would have given this cottage a 5 star review.

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast at the pond house! My husband and I stayed for 7 nights for our 10 year anniversary. It was so peaceful, and very private. The gravel road coming into the property got washed out, which caused us a little trouble getting there, but the owner was very prompt in fixing up the road the next morning. That was the only problem we came across the whole stay (and not that big of a deal either). The hot tub was great. Our small dogs had a blast exploring the property. And I got into a kayak for the first time (I'm not an adventurous person, LOL). A family of 6 deer wandered across each morning, stopping to drink from the pond. It was just so great to be away from everything! We can't wait to come back every year.

Beautiful private our fur babies were free to play and we're safe

  • 5 of 5

I planned this trip back in March 2016 as a surprise for my husband to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. It was the perfect setting In the mountains to relax let our fur babies play and have fun. Amazing to relax in the hot tub on a chilly night by moon lite. Over all perfect ..

Tranquil retreat..

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had an amazing relaxing 3-night stay from October 9-12. This cottage is perfect for anyone who needs a break from it all.. We thoroughly enjoyed the calming peace and quiet of this picturesque property. The awesome thing about this property is most common items are on hand(hair dryer, kitchen utensils, nice large bath towels..etc) The property is very secluded from town but yet a very short distance (10min drive) to Wal-Mart, Target, Dollar Tree, Cracker Barrel, Starbucks, IHOP, and other various eateries). The hot tub was fantastic! My husband is not a big hot tub person so the chilly evenings I relaed in the hot tub and he made use of the fire pit. We saw so much wildlife (deer, turkeys, squirrels, and doves) I would definitely recommend you have an all-wheel drive car or suv (the drive wasn't awful by any means. However, if we would have taken my car I am not sure if it would have handled the steep inclines or have bottomed out) this is by no means a negative response, its country living. Just a good tip. We look very much forward to returning to this amazing property in furture or perhaps the "Overlook" property. With that being said I absolutely loved our stay! We can hardly wait to return!

The perfect little getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful few days at the Pond Cottage. It's amazing how much ease and comfort can fit into such a cute little house! We had everything we needed: peace and quiet, comfy reading spots, lovely nap areas, restaurants nearby, the sound of the waterfall, a pond for the dog and an abundance of wildlife. Any questions we had were promptly answered by Sean, which we appreciate. You have made new annual (or maybe more often) guests! Next time we'll try the Overlook, then the Farmhouse and then the new house. Thank you for your hospitality.

Beautiful water fall into rock pool that overflows into pond is one of a kind experience. Large lined swimming pond with beach only steps from deck.
