One Bedroom, One and a Half Bathrooms Sleeps Four

A Perfect Fantasy Escape. 650 sq ft Cottage is beautifully secluded on 10 acres with a private pond. Sit in the hot tub and watch the waterfall cascade into a rock pool and flow into a beautiful 15,000 sq/ft lined swimming pond...or sit in the rock pool under the waterfall and you will think you must be in Hawaii.The expansive lanai and deck are perfect for catching the sun; alfreco dining under the stars; hanging out with friends; reading your favorite name it and it will be as good as anything you've imagined. The beach has a zero depth entry for lounging or playing in the water. Inside this gem you will find everything you need for a delightful stay: From the leather lounge and viking bed you can watch the fireplace or the large flat screen TV to the rainfall shower with natural stone and tile. Only a two minute walk from the scenic Shenandoah River. Skyline Drive, hiking and biking trails, 100 holes of golf, shopping, restaurants only 10-20 minutes away!

Beautiful water fall into rock pool that overflows into pond is one of a kind experience. Large lined swimming pond with beach only steps from deck. While we do out best to keep everything up and running, all outdoor amenities are subject to weather or maintenance limitations (example: waterfall turned in colder months to keep pipes from freezing/bursting)

Relaxing retreat

  • 4 of 5

This is a great place to get away from it all. Not enough linens were provided in my opinion. Also the hot tub didn't work 100% half the jets didn't work. Also had difficulty working the TV (Roku) and kept having to reset router. Also some black stuff kept falling from the air condition unit and had to clean up daily in front of the bathroom. Other than the few things a great romantic getaway!

Perfect weekend get away

  • 5 of 5

This was a great little spot in a secluded area! We went as a "one last get away before the baby comes" and sitting in the hot tub in a beautiful location gave us exactly what we were looking for. Will definitely be back!!

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, and modern interior design, very well thought out space. Relaxing and away from it all, apart from missing an extra pan to cook with, a very nice stay. would highly recommend.

We loved the house, but the beds will keep us from going back

  • 3 of 5

We loved this cottage, the privacy, location to hiking, trails, and the river. The stone pond and waterfall were a very nice touch. I have to say, for the detail that was put into the house, the beds were terribly uncomfortable. Everyone in our group suffered from the uncomfortable beds and it was noticeable. If it weren't for the beds, I would have given this cottage a 5 star review.

Owner's Response: Hello, I wanted to send an update to say we have upgraded the mattress on the main bed! Thank you again very much for your valuable feedback. _______________________________________________ Thanks for visiting and we are so happy to hear you enjoyed the best and most unique parts of the property! Thanks for your valuable feedback as well. It's very important for us to hear where we can improve our hospitality. We are disappointed that we did not meet your standards with the beds. I can assure you that we are looking into better options for the main bed downstairs to try and increase the comfort in the limited space. The sofa bed in the loft is auxiliary sleeping and we understand it has limitations on comfort as well. We will do our best to improve this issue for our future guests!

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast at the pond house! My husband and I stayed for 7 nights for our 10 year anniversary. It was so peaceful, and very private. The gravel road coming into the property got washed out, which caused us a little trouble getting there, but the owner was very prompt in fixing up the road the next morning. That was the only problem we came across the whole stay (and not that big of a deal either). The hot tub was great. Our small dogs had a blast exploring the property. And I got into a kayak for the first time (I'm not an adventurous person, LOL). A family of 6 deer wandered across each morning, stopping to drink from the pond. It was just so great to be away from everything! We can't wait to come back every year.
