Suzanne was an awesome host. We needed a place to stay during the beginning of the week and we came across her place. It was very cute and she was very hospitable.

We loves visiting Pond Haven! It’s was close to everything but still felt like we were in the woods camping. The space was beautiful and Suzanne had everything there we needed.

Very Chill Spot
We visited while on a road trip and appreciated the ability to "camp" along the way without needing to bring a lot of our camping equipment. Pond Haven is like a bedroom screened-in on three sides. There's also a lovely dock and some rocking chairs. Great place to both be outdoors while also being, technically, indoors.

We loved our stay at Suzanne’s cabin! Directions were clear and easy to find. The place was very clean and had everything we needed. Sleeping with the cool breeze coming through the screened windows (in mid-June) was delightful and sipping coffee on the porch with a good book was just the getaway we needed. The compost toilet is under the same roof with a small partition for privacy, so no middle-of-the-night walks in the rain to use the bathroom. Even though the nearby section of the Blue Ridge Parkway is closed for construction, we found plenty to do in the area with our kayak, bikes, and hiking boots! We loved our stay and would definitely come back.

Cute open air bungalow
Pond Haven is a little gem! Super cute little screened, open air bungalow. The host has great little touches like a camp stove and utensils/plates/cups. There are no curtains so you can see through from outside but that didn’t bother me. I would recommend!

My stay was everything I could have hoped for and even more beautiful than pictured I had everything I needed and could want for. To name a few, Suzanne provides filtered water, a camping burner, a tea kettle, two sets of dishware, a bin of outdoorsy necessities, a lantern, interesting books to pass the time and rocking chairs. The composting toilet was super easy and convenient to have. The bed was very comfortable and situated in just the right spot to gaze out one of the many windows and listen to the nature noises. The space leaves you feeling so so calm and serene. If you can't wait and want to come before the weather warms up, I would suggest bringing layers and extra blankets since the window are screen only. I am sure there is a lovely cross breeze during summer! As someone else said, this is right on a long driveway next to Suzanne's house, but honestly, I felt so safe and cozy there and did not ever feel intruded upon. It felt like the best of both worlds; beautiful nature and a neighbor across the way. Suzanne did say she is working on putting blinds up for privacy. Suzanne was wonderful and hospitable and even offered to show me some hiking trails. I could not recommend this space more. I hope to return some day and if you are considering it, I would absolutely book it for a one of a kind, calming, and grounding experience. Thanks, Suzanne!

Amazing retreat!
This was an adventurous treat retreat with my 3 yr old grand daughter. The large comfortable & open cabin in the trees gave us the feel of camping outdoors but with much more comfort. Thank you Suzanne for your wonderful hospitality!

Suzanne’s Pond Haven was adorable and had all the amenities we needed for our short stay. We arrived late and she greeted us and explained the compost toilet. We hiked McAfee Knob early the next morning and it was dark when we arrived and left but th sounds of nature were perfect. Wonderful place to rest your head and relax.

Comfort of home in camp like env’t
Pond Haven is a rustic retreat with the most essential comforts of home. Hidden just beyond a residential area it had the joys of nature with foliage, fauna, critters, and all the noises that come with them. They lulled us to sleep and awoke us just the same. Suzanne was gracious and joyful, sharing her passion for the Roanoke area. We also had the special treat of enjoying a stroll along the blue ridge parkway, just a short distance away, due to the closure of a small section.

We had a great stay at Pond Haven! The cabin itself is really beautiful, great amenities, and surrounded by trees. Suzanne was a fantastic host that made sure we were comfortable and entertained, even showing my son a creek that runs through the woods. The place had a really calming vibe that was great after traveling for a week. One thing that I would mention is that while the cabin is surrounded by trees, it is not as private as I had thought. It is situated on a driveway in a neighborhood with no coverings for the windows. This was not a big problem as I felt safe and trusted Suzanne, but know that the cabin is not in the middle of the woods. Overall, a well designed and welcoming place to stay!

Great Cabin & Great Hostess
Pulling into the cabin it was so beautiful, tucked away in the mountains in a very serene spot. The cabin had the cutest porch, which Suzanne had decorated with chairs and some handy lanterns. The inside the cabin was very simple- a cute bed with some clean sheet, a drink and tableware station (with clean drinking water), some very interesting books, and the compostable toilet. The hostess Suzanne was absolutely wonderful, very welcoming and provided us with some great knowledge about the area. Her property is a stunning and peaceful spot that I would recommend to anyone looking for a Blue Ridge mountain get away. Unfortunately my fiancé and I could not spend the whole weekend there as our bunny child was getting overheated (he’s a drama Queen). We’re definitely excited to come back in the fall!

Absolutely loved Suzanne's cabin! So cute and peaceful. Has everything you need, even a stove and french press to make coffee. Great breeze and enjoyed listening to the frogs by the pond. Would have loved to spend more time there and chat. Suzanne was incredibly kind and accommodating.

I want to stay here forever!
OMG, this little cabin is so incredibly delightful. I’m sorry We’re only here one night. Suzanne has made a little screen house feel like boho luxury! We loved listening to the birds at dusk and dawn. I went down the steps to the sweet pond and sat in a chair as I sipped the coffee we made in our cabin. The best is comfy and there’s a gorgeous gliding chair and rocking chair. It really is a little haven - and it’s just a couple hundred yards from the section of the blue ridge parkway that is closed right now, so it’s a perfect walking path!
