Harding farmhouse description

Twin Ponds is a newly renovated, elegantly decorated, peaceful country homestead that will get you away from it all. Best of all you have it all to yourself!

This historic home played a big part in the underground railroad system many years ago.

Evenings unwind, relax & enjoy the magical views of the ponds and creek from your private wooden hot tub and new creek side deck. If you time it right you may even get to see the new fawns playing in the pasture. Enjoy nature and all the wildlife in this peaceful setting with all the stars at night providing your backdrop.

During the summer months the fire flies put on a show just for your viewing pleasure and entertainment. Best seats in the house are the hot tub, back deck or front porch.

Take the opportunity to catch record breaking large bass & other fresh water fish from your own ponds. Nothin' better then grilling them up fresh right outside your back door on our large grill.

The kitchen provides another pond view with 20 acres of fields & forests for your scenery.

Our country kitchen comes fully stocked with some of the best cookware and china available. You will have fun cooking in your unique farm style kitchen.

Feeling elegant then serve up that gourmet meal in the beautiful antique dining room off of the kitchen. Enjoy your gastronomical delight in your formal dining room by peaceful candlelight.

Afterwards kick back on your own private deck with your private creek cascading past. Or take a stroll up to the outdoor table and chairs located between the second and third ponds and watch the creek go fast flowing by while you sip your coffee, beer or wine.

We have chairs placed here and there along the ponds and creek. All you need to do is find your favorite location to sit down, take a break, read or chat to your honey.

On the side of the house there is an old stone fireplace that you could even cook on top of. If you prefer there is a portable fireplace to enjoy the dancing flames in the cool of the evenings.

Our babbling brook will lull you to sleep every night in your spacious bedroom. Sip your morning coffee in bed while watching the wildlife on the pond directly outside your bedroom window. The beautiful Magnolia Bedroom set provides you with a romantic Queen Bed and a heavenly new mattress for the best night sleep imaginable. It has been rumored that particular mattress is compatible of just sucking you in for the night where you don’t even move a muscle before the sun starts coming up in the morning.

Nightstands are both equipped with reading lamps, in case you both would like to do a little reading before the romancing begins.

In the corner of the room is a beautiful Secretarial Desk and book shelf in case you brought your laptop & want to email your friends to let them know how much fresher, younger and happier you are feeling at Twin Ponds.

The big plus is a large walk in closet with built in luggage bench. There is an ample supply of robes & hangers along with an ironing board, iron and laundry baskets. Also provided are the finest linens, towels and down comforters.

Freshen up in your 2 person steam shower while looking out at the large pastures. Or relax and soak in our antique tub and enjoy a view of the pond.

Slip outside your front door and take a gander at your living room window. It will bring back nostalgic memories of the Christmas Movie's famous “Major Award”. Probably the first time in your life that you will get to see it up close and personal, lit up at night from the outside. (Yes, I'd like to break it too.)

What ever you do don’t shoot your eye out with the Daisy Red Rider hanging over the kitchen door for safe keeping.

The spacious living room provides piano players an opportunity to bang out some tunes on our beautiful Steinway Grand Piano complete with ivory keys. Or simply cuddle up and relax on the comfy living room furniture while you settle in and watch a great movie from your own huge video library.

There is a small outdoor kennel and private field for training bird dogs if your loyal companion is traveling with you. Also dog beds, toys and bowls inside. Our 4-legged friends are all welcome provide no dog hair is ever left behind.
