Property description

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!
