I love traveling, when you want to get away from the big city this is a great hidden location. There was a few hiccups to actually getting on the property, perhaps the owner should keep her phone available until the guest has checked in. I didn't understand leaving no trash on the property. We left her home just like we found it however I didn't see the Kirby until we were leaving, there are barriers to put trash in. However she wants you to take the trash off the property so I was confused with that.. she have plenty of everything that you can use as if you're at home. So she does make it very comfortable for you. The view Simply Amazing. She could use more flood lights around the house for better view another property somewhat dark around the lake area which could be very dangerous. The only thing that is missing is an outdoor hot tub. But again this is an awesome place and I can't wait to get back
Good place, great yard, little outdated home with minor issues
I'll start by saying overall we enjoyed our stay. That said, the home could use some TLC and a few things should be mentioned.
-the home itself has a large living room/dining room area, great for a large family, with a large dinner table, bar, and round table. Each couch pulls out to a bed if needed, but we found a capped used syringe and mouse poop under one of the sofas. I can see how the cleaning crew could have missed it though, if not moving furniture to clean.
-the kitchen is a little outdated, but the essentials, fridge (no ice machine) oven, and microwave do work. One coffee maker, electric skillet, and hand mixer did not however. We also kept having to reset the circuit breaker for the kitchen as it kept tripping.
-back bedroom next to kitchen gets cold (we stayed in late fall), as it appears to be an add on. There is a radiator space heater in the room but we had to run an extention cord to it from another room to get it to work since the plug were not working in the room itself.
-the bathrooms and bedrooms were small. One has a small corner shower, another just a tub for baths (we used it to bathe the little ones), and a third small half bath. Lots of light switches, need to be labeled
-the wifi is a Verizon 4G mifi wiring off cell reception, so it was all but useless. Occasionally it would connect and maybe give 3g speeds briefly. Needless to say cell reception for your own devices are also suffering.
-no cell reception, but there is satellite TV with plenty of channels
- the highlights were probably outside. The pond was nice. It's large, and a paddle boat, kayak, and an old john boat are provided. Be careful with the john boat though, it had a slow leak up front. We did bring fishing gear but we never caught a fish or even got a bite.
-the front yard is big, plenty of space to park your cars, play a game of Frisbee, football, or something. We took some pictures at the gazebo. There's also a small outdoor fireplace/pit to use. The best part is probably the covered dock. It has 2 tables and chairs under it. I put up a hammock under it and everyone loved hanging out there. Watch little ones, steep slopes at the banks going into the water.
-I was suprised how much you can hear the nearbye interstate at night. Nothing that you can hear in the home, but at night you can hear loud cars passing by. There is also a railroad track next to the property, heard a couple trains go by.
Not a bad place
exactly what we were looking for
We had a team of insurance agents that was reservicing existing clients in Statesboro and surrounding counties. We usually stay at the Comfort Inn & Suites but decided to this house a try. Everything was in excellent working order and the process from start to finish was enjoyable. We had one of our best weeks of 2017 so far and our accommodations were a big part of that. Thanks to the owners who checked in on us but also gave us all the space we needed. We hope to come back here again later this year.
there is nothing fancy about this place but it was clean and just fine for our group of 12 women in our family ages 45-90 to get together for a weekend to enjoy each other. We enjoyed being able to all eat at the big table and to gather in the spacious den. We had a hard time locating the proper light switches - would be GREAT to put small labels on the switches. the ice maker was broken. but the price was certainly right! We had a very pleasant time at the Pond House. If the weather had not been so stinking hot we would have enjoyed the yard and dock even more. There are no stores within several miles but if you go into Statesboro you will find all you need. We would certainly consider the Pond House the next time we get together.
Just What We Needed
The Pond House was perfect for us! We needed weekend lodging to attend wedding activities in a nearby town and are so happy we found this place. It provided all the comforts of home and was very spacious to accommodate us. Coming from different locations and meeting here, it was like a mini family reunion. We were able to actually "visit" with each other in a homey atmosphere. Relaxing on the deck...fishing from the dock...meals around the large dining table -- it was all great! Love the seclusion and tranquility. We are already talking about a return visit.
Fantastic family weekend!
We had a MAGICAL weekend at your home!! Truly magical. The lake, the boats, the fishing, the gazebo, the wonderful big dining room table, get space for everyone, getting to have the dogs there... it was all perfect! We booked again within a day for getting home.
