Very Nice People

We were very blessed to have ViewRider's stay at the
Vista Retreat. The were very unassuming and respectful. We were happy to provide them with a place of respite while they were here. They were always very appreciatative and extremely quiet. Around the campfire we all had a great time and enjoyed talking about their travels while tossing frizebies for our puppies.

Short stay

These guests arrived tired and glad to be able to finally stop. We are glad that we can offer a quiet place for people to stop, no matter the duration. Very pleasant couple.

Our first time boondocking was enjoyable

Our hosts were most gracious. They were full of local area knowledge and eager to share. They also gave us great ideas on how to travel with cats and how boondocking works.

The site was great. It looked across the road at the lake. And on the other side was a lovely covered bridge across their pond.

Memorable weekend

My daughter and I were looking for a "getaway" weekend spot and we stumbled across "Pondside by the Willows." What a find? From the location to the hosts, it was a 5-star experience. There is excellent "easy" hiking at Beagle Club Trailhead/Northumberland Forest. The boating/canoeing/kayaking/fishing opportunities on Rice lake are plentiful. Words will fail me to describe the graciousness of the hosts. Their warm welcome and generosity will not be forgotten. My daughter joins me in expressing our sincere gratitude.

Pondside by the Willows was breathtaking!

The hosts of Pondside by the Willows were very warm and welcoming and also very knowledgeable! They gave us suggestions of what to visit in the area and also gave us tips on RVs and boondocking which we are very grateful for! The property was beautiful and our site overlooked the lake - just breathtaking to wake up to! I wouldn't hesitate recommending this site to anyone!

Great host Great Location

Terry and his dear wife are great hosts with a nice location for a relaxing place to be for anyone that is passing through or doing some fishing. It was also wonderful to get in a game of golf on my trip with Terry.
That made the detour well worthwhile. I highly recommend them a very good B/D host.
