“Perfect for short or long term stay”
Twin Ponds offers a range of amenities that include convenience, charm, beauty, great location, beautiful decor and privacy. Spacious, clean, and scenic. Karen is great to work with. We had extended stays in fall 2014 and early 2015, and enjoyed both. Highly recommend.
Response from the owner Thank you very much Carrie and Troy for choosing Twin Ponds for the months that Troy was working in our area this past winter. Hope you will come back and see how beautiful it also is during the summer months and fall. Best wishes, Karen & Mike
“Rest and Relaxation”
We always rent a home for vacations and weekends away, and are familiar with bringing everything but the kitchen sink with us just in case. Twin Ponds was a welcome exception to the "in-case" scenario. Beautiful inside with a myriad of furnishings and artifacts from the incredible orchid which greeted us on the kitchen table to the window leg lamp from "A Christmas Story", Steinway piano, lovely china and an amazing antique looking push button stove and cooktop with a built in steamer. The kitchen left us wanting for nothing. The view from the back deck is gorgeous. Looking over one of the three ponds to a large expense of field we witnessed a large blue heron, turtles, kingfisher and what we finally identified as a "Least Bittern", along with the occasional splashing of jumping fish. The bed is super comfortable, and while it took a little while to get used to the steam shower (couple of slight accidents after realizing you need to have the doors closed while operating...sorry), I am a convert to this method of waking up. Struggle a few paces from the bed in the morning, sit in the shower, turn on the steam and gently perspire for about 15 minutes before the conventional morning shower...with music from the built in radio if you wanted. Amazing. The grounds are expansive with three ponds and two hot tubs (one propane and one wood fired). We only used one - I mean how many do you really need? We picked some fresh basil from the garden for our meals, and spent many happy hours either hot-tubbing or simply enjoying the view on the deck with very comfortable chairs, a frosty mug (supplied) of beer (also one supplied), or a glass of champagne (also supplied). Not so bad. We stayed 4 nights and would have loved more. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing, stress free experience where everything is supplied, everything is good quality and everything works, this is your place. Civilization is only 10 minutes (or less), but you feel you are a million miles away. My guess is if we needed anything, our hosts would be more than happy to oblige....but we didn't need anything. Our thanks for a great long weekend. Note: For all you city slickers, bring some sort of repellant in season. It's the country, and there are bugs especially at night (shocking really). We bought citronella's and they worked.
Response from the owner Thank you so very much for choosing Tain Ponds. We are so happy that you enjoyed it so much. We do a lot of vacation home rentals ourselves and because of that we do try to provided everything the way we would like it ourselves. Hope to have you back soon. Best wishes, Mike & Karen
We did not want to leave...so peaceful and homey..had a delicious dinner waiting for us on the table, and refrigerator was stocked with cool glasses and beer ...overall the home is relaxing and comfortable , the hot tub is a definite perk
“Amazing anniversary weekend”
Amazing anniversary weekend Our stay at Twin Ponds farmhouse was exactly what we needed-a romantic weekend of pampering and overdue relaxation time. We treated ourselves to some wonderful foods, drinks, and conversations while enjoying the homes many amenities like the big screen TV and the sauna. At night, we fall asleep to the sounds of the stream flowing outside our window; sooo soothing. When we did venture outside, it was to soak in the wood hot tub; which Karen and Mike were so kind to setup for us earlier than usual. We even took a soak during an ice storm and must say the experience was magical! Our dog also enjoyed her time in the country. She loved running in the large open field, she even rolled around in the deer dropping-for some reason they were irresistible to her. The property is located on a large piece of land which includes two ponds, a stream, and a large open field that is away from the road so it we felt safe letting her off leash. Thank you again Karen and Mike for being so accommodating and throwing and extra night stay. We really appreciate it and will be back!
Response from the owner Thank you for being our first spring guests. You got to experience it all! Beautiful spring and winter weather. Bet you never thought you would wake up to 6 inches of snow in April. Hope you both will come back to see the fire flies light up the fields with their magic this summer and for our fantastic fall foliage. Karen & Mike
“Lovely renovated farmhouse”
Our stay at Twin Ponds was very enjoyable. The fishing was great, and we were even able to keep and eat the fish!!! Nice and comfortable furnishings. The bed and sofa were so very,very comfortable. Loved the rugs by the bed - felt so good under bare feet. Neat shower, and comfortable soaking old time tub. Kitchen was well supplied with good quality and pretty dishes and glasses, pots and pans, and utensils - even had spices and butter for our use. Very convenient to have paper products and linens supplied. Loved having a piano to play!! Great mixture of antique and modern. Owners very quickly respond to any problems or questions. House very close to a restaurant. Would recommend this to other couples for a nice and peaceful get away.
“This house was perfect for a relaxing getaway from the city.”
I love this house! It's gorgeous and in excellent condition. The kitchen was well stocked (although the knives could use a good sharpening) and has an awesome antique stove. We loved cooking here while looking out over the ponds and large meadow just outside the window. The hot tub was amazing - what a location! Sitting and looking up at the stars was very relaxing. Additionally, the location of the property is near to Ricketts Glen State Park, where we had a great hike, as well as Scranton and Old Forge, where we went on a tour of an old coal mine and ate delicious pizza. The farm stands along the winding roads offered wonderful produce and the rolling hills made for a beautiful afternoon drive. I can't wait to go back!! Thank you, Mike and Karen, for providing such a lovely, clean and welcoming home.
Friendly host, total calm quiet and relaxed environment fishing was great, and the home was so comfortable I wish we could have stayed forever
“Perfect weekend getaway”
This place is awesome! My husband and I came out for a "babymoon" and spent a long weekend here. The grounds and house are charming and very well-kept. Karen and Mike are very easy to work with, and we appreciated their laid-back (but still attentive) attitude. The ponds, back meadow, and front/side yards are so pretty!!! And the inside of the house is great -- it has everything from towels/linens to Dvds/videos to books to dishes, etc. We ate at the appletree Restaurant at the bottom of the road one night, and the foods and service were very good. We would highly recommend this house and will probably go back again someday.
Twin Ponds is the most fantastic vacation place you will ever find! This home away from home cottage will leave you feeling warm, cozy, and wanting to stay indefinitely! Karen and Mike are the most gracious hosts... and we have found life long friends! We will be returning soon, as we miss the tranquility already! Twin Ponds offers everything... we didn't need to bring a thing! We raise our glasses to Mike and Karen... keep the fire burning for us! See you very soon! Much Love, Rich, Lynne, and Oscar
My husband and I had a great time! The house is impeccably clean and the owners were more than accommodating! The stream right outside the bedroom window made it impossible not to feel relaxed. Its a Beautiful place and will Definatly be returning!
