Later, slip away to the pond house for a romantic evening, surrounded by nature, perfectly designed just for two.

(5 guests, 1 open bedroom, 3 beds, detached bath in main house)
The Pond House is rustic elegance at it's finest, however please note, it does not have electricity, running water, Wifi or cellular reception. It also has screened walls allowing all the sounds of nature to surround you. Of course, that means it does not have windows but in turn a great breeze. You can choose to bring a generator and restroom rental down to the Pond House, however, it's best served as an intimate spot to apply your finishing touches before the big day, enjoy a one-of-a-kind "first-look" with your partner, and serve as the ultimate secluded retreat following your wedding day. Includes 2 queen beds and 1 single bed.
