“The essence of the Adirondacks is right here.”
Reviewed 10 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We had our honeymoon here and let me tell you this place is absurdly perfect and the owner is fantastic. Firstly, before I can even get into how adorable and authenticity Adirondack the house is, allow me to rate the quiet calm that embraces you upon crossing the back porch-5 out of 5 stars all the way. The peace of the Adirondacks greets you upon stepping across the threshold of the island view lake room (dining room)-clear, clean, and fresh air fills your lungs, the bright smell of pine needles fat and florrd, enveloped by the quiet lapping of lake water still and brilliant and just a few steps below. I cannot find the words to describe the feeling of stepping across the threshold into the back yard. The quiet calm is disarming.

We were beyond impressed with the view, the perfection, the attentiveness to detail that Molly Pond's place offers. O the many decks and docks you will enjoy! The house itself is divine in its evocation of a traditional Adirondack "camp" (don't be scared by my use of this word, I'll take this place over a hotel any day). Farm sink, old stove from the 40's, a stunning sitting room with wall to wall windows. Her teapot has a bird on the spout--a bird!

There are board games, flashlights galore, and enough baking equipment in the kitchen to satisfy the best of baking queens! You will want for nothing here. It is very clear that the owner has thought of everything. EVERYTHING. The antique sideboard cupboard with the old comic books, the board games of yesteryear (with vintage monopoly board game) AND all the modern amenities (WiFi, microwave, etc.). The owner's sister stopped by because one of the floodlights for the property had blown out (we didn't even notice). The place is clearly well taken care of.

We live in the suburbs and I swear I have more spiders at home than you will find at this place. Fans and flashlights, plenty of deck chairs for adults and kids--my husband and I have not experienced such hospitality in our lives (and we are WELL traveled).

And the neighbors, my goodness! The salt of the earth. You will feel like you are on the Andy Griffith show, no lie; you will leave with a newfound sense of what the term "good country people" really means.

Gracefully enchanting is the best way I can describe Molly Pond's place. Worth the money and then some! An experience us newlyweds will never forget! Thank you Molly!

“Wonderful Vaction”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in August 2014

This is exactly what we needed. There was enough room for 4 adults and 3 children (we could have fit more people if we wanted to). The lake was quite and peaceful. A neighbor came over the 1st day to make sure we knew how to use the boat and everyone was very friendly. There was plenty of fishing and swimming to be had by all. Great fire pit for a fire at night. If you need to get away from it all this is the place to book.

“Pure relaxation”
Reviewed 21 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My husband, 2 children and myself really enjoyed our stay. The lake is very peaceful and the residents nearby were very friendly. The area does not have much to offer for activities but they were not needed as the scenery and lake were just what we were looking for to spend time outdoors and relax as a family.

“Relaxation and tranquility”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The house is rustic, but perfect for a lakeside venue with kids. You cook mostly outdoors and the beauty of the place is the lake and the amenities the property offers to use on the lake. We had two families, with two young kids, who had an absolute blast. the lake is small enough to be safe and the cottage is just right - you can feel at home. I would recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a relaxing family vacation in a property that is not luxurious, but perfect for a fun filled family holiday
