Turtle Pond
10/10 would recommend!
We absolutely adored turtle pond and the surrounding property. This is truly a gem; very private, SO much wildlife around and lots of running space for kids and dogs. There are also many old farmstead buildings on the properties you can see as you walk the trails. Easy in/ easy out with our 23' camper. Thank you to Gabe and Stephanie for sharing this beautiful space with other people and we will most definitely be back!
