The vibe at The Pond House
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
The Pond House is a cute little nest with a large and wonderful outdoor deck overlooking a lovely pond. It's small but has everything we needed—even a coffee grinder—to have a very comfortable stay. Don't hesitate to pass by Mackenzie's house while hiking around the property. She's such a friendly host! We would come again without any hesitation.
Beautiful and rustic
Very much in nature
Mackenzie, the host, is the best
Try to get to know her as soon as you can so you can get a feel for the place
She is the compass rose for the vibe here
She will also tell you where to go for grabbing food, picking berries, playing in the reservoir, etc
There are other campers close by - it is not utter isolation - but it is pretty darn close
Stargazing from the dock at night is amazing
Very rustic, but peaceful and the lights around the pond at night is magical. The over all camp is very rural but I see improvements and Mckenzie is a wonderful host and I see a bright future for people who go there. The pond at first looks very small form the side but once you are in front it is long and the inside is pretty equipped for anything you need.
You will enjoy yourself.
We had a great stay at the pond house. It was a nice quiet place to spend new years. Enjoyed walking the path with a cup of coffee in the morning. Mackenzie is a great communicator and helpful. Made the drive over to fort bragg for a beer at north coast brewing and walked around. Would stay again!
