Hutchinson house description

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.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: 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.

                  Why the Owner Chose Hutchinson:
                  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.
