Not quiet but a great pond

The property was beautiful although it was very close to residential dwellings. The biggest issue for me was the traffic noise from the nearby interstate that sounded especially loud in the pre-dawn hours.

The host was away although his brother was very sweet and made me feel very welcome and safe.

The pond was a bit smaller than expected but really is full of fish. I enjoyed my few days of catch and release with the many healthy, large species in there.
I took the short hike around the pond but wasn’t sure where boundaries were so I didn’t venture in very far.

Great place for families if you are prepared and don’t mind not having a toilet or electricity. I charged my phone in the car and I bring a composting toilet.
I go camping for the fishing and quiet and Findley Lake was nearby for a nice outing.
Great pond, great hosts, just a bit too much traffic noise to sleep well. Definitely worth a visit though.

This was a wonderful stop for our family on the way to Vermont. As soon as we arrived Lance greeted us and gave us the lay of the land-pointing out all the trails that surround his peaceful pond, firewood, etc.). And, he was very helpful and kind when we got stuck in the soft grass (we parked in the wrong spot🤦🏻‍♀️) and put us in a gravel spot instead. Regardless, we enjoyed our quick stay and loved the area. We’ll be back for sure!

We arrived quite late (10:00 pm) for our last stopover at Bally Loch on our trip home from a family reunion. Lance greeted us in the dark and helped us get our van parked behind the barn. Lance called this “site 1”, and it is nestled between barn and pond with a fire pit nearby. Instant kinship and kindness felt —we were able to peacefully tuck in, and drifted off to sleep quickly. In the morning we got back on the road early, but would have loved a swim in the enchanted pond (which was covered in mist this am). Next time! Thank you, Lance and family for sharing your gorgeous space, and for your generous spirit which graced the last leg of our long trip. ❤️🌈

Lance was an amazing host even though he was out of town when I booked last-minute. His sister, Destiny was an amazing host and I got to stay in the cute little dye-barn by the lake because it was storming. She even invited me in for oatmeal in the morning! I will definitely be staying here again on my Ohio-New York commutes :) thank you Lance and Destiny!

Idyllic place to stay! We had such a wonderful time exploring the path around the pond and watching the abundance of birds in the area. The fireflies at night were an extra treat to watch around the campfire. Thanks again Lance!

Lance was very responsive to messages leading up to our stay and met us upon arrival to give us a tour of the site. A hospitable host and very convenient stopover from a drive on I-90.
