The rooms are spectacular, decent size, bathrooms are good and showers work well (with good water pressure). The porch view was great and specially as beach were near so we can enjoy the night life as well....

We had a great time -- staff was very nice -- room was clean and cozy for our family. Also the pond was so much fun for the kids -they keep talking about the Swan that had babies -- the owner told us she comes back every year!

We were celebrating my dad's 75th birthday this past weekend and my brother came up with the idea to do it at Walden on the Pond. Some of us are in NYC, others in NJ and PA, so this seemed centrally located. I was reluctant at first, because I don't drive and I know that Spring Lake isn't very pedestrian-friendly....
