Excellent Rental

Review submitted: December 13, 2008   Date of arrival: October 31, 2008

The Pond is an excellent rental home with everything you can possibly need at your disposal. Beautiful scenery, beautiful surroundings, and a beautiful home make it the perfect getaway. Nicely decorated with all the amenities you will need and offers complete privacy. Close proximity to Highlands and lots of hiking possibilities. We rented bikes at a local shop and enjoyed their beautiful park in their quaint town! Perfect for a quiet and relaxing escape!

3rd Visit!

Review submitted: February 19, 2014   Date of arrival: November 14, 2013

So enjoyed our visit (our 3rd)! It's always a sad day on departure. Each time we visit we've brought someone new and they too were amazed at the beautify, details and condition of your "rental". Our friends couldn't believe you've had it on the rental market and its in such immaculate shape. Our friends can't wait to schedule their trip.

Walking through the door feels like being wrapped in a warm throw and warming by the fire. Thank you for the heartfelt appreciation of your home.

Love & prayers
