We had a great time at this pond home. We were a little hesitant about the walk to the pond, because we had rented ON a pond the last few years, but really enjoyed the short walk both to and from the pond. If we had a lot to carry it was easy to drive down and drop things off.
The house is as advertised - very clean, neat and orderly with everything we needed and space for us to spread out and be comfortable. The heating and cooling system works really well - we had both hot and cool days. We kept it off much of the time but it was great when it was hot and humid. The pond is lovely and clean and clear. The Kayak is a heavy double kayak that handles very well and is great for two people. We also brought our own kayaks and there was plenty of room to put them in the garage when we weren't using them. The bikes were not really useable for us as an older crowd - they were the older, heavy mountain bikes and were not in great shape but might work for younger, stronger riders. We borrowed other bikes from family in the area and had great access to the bike path for some fun rides. SUPs were great and a lot of fun.
The neighborhood is quiet and a great place for walks. We used every inch of the house - barbecue grill and deck, sun room, basement room (a great place if you need to work while on vacation), living room, dining room. Beds were comfortable. All appliances worked well.
Chuck was a gracious host, answering all our questions in detail to help us make a good decision. The beach areas are part of an association, so shared by the members. We found some members appropriately concerned about where we parked our van when we brought things down to the beach and whether we were going to take up too much room. Evidently it gets crowded sometimes, and we were respectful of the space and regulations for the beach area. But honestly there were never more than a few people on the Sheep Pond beach at any time and we enjoyed those families who did show up.
We hope to return!
