Our Story…

For those of you that have vacationed at and created memories at “Lynn’s Pond House” over the past 8 years, we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts!  Your enjoyment of our  home truly touches us deeply.


Recently, we made the decision to sell Lynn’s Pond House and consolidate our two rental homes into one that will continue to serve the Fayetteville WV region.

“Laurel Creek Retreat” has been upgraded to sleep up to 20 people and offers a beautiful private creek front setting for your special gatherings of friends and family. (contact Laurel Creek Retreat.com or VRBO #394682)

With a tear in one eye yet a big grin on our faces we have some very exciting news to share!

Announcing, “Stillwater Haven”, our brand new vacation/event rental home located in Friendsville, MD with riverfront on the famous Youghiogheny River, a boater’s dream.  Our services have now expanded to accommodate an additional recreational resort region in the beautiful mountains of Western Maryland.

Lynn’s Pond House lives on with a few different twists so to speak.  The open space layout is an ideal setting for events and large group gatherings.  We will continue to offer the same personal touches and comfort that has given us our “set us apart” reputation.



 Notes from a study of Luke 14:16:  When used for God’s glory, he never asks us to give up something good unless he plans to replace it with something even better…..


Come and visit us, we welcome you to share our blessing!   (contact Stillwater Haven.com or VRBO #821894)


We love and know both areas really well and we would be honored if you would allow us to be your personal concierge, designing your stay for both outdoor adventure and indoor relaxation.  We believe that we are managers of God’s resources and we have a strong desire to serve families/church groups to offer them a beautiful venue where they can create lasting memories and unforgettable experiences.

We believe that “Lynn’s Pond House” was a huge success.  By having offered it to others, hundreds of families have been able to create wonderful memories with their family & friends.  Thank you for allowing us to serve you in the past and please consider allowing us to help you create new memories at one of our other properties.  If you are not familiar with “Lynn’s Pond House”, please feel invited to read the VRBO reviews for VRBO Property#270210.

Again, thank you for your past and future loyalty and support!   If you want to learn more about either of our properties, please feel invited to call me on my cell at 540.580.2943 or send us an email at stillwaterhaven@gmail.com

P.S. A Special Note From Lynn:

Over the past 8 years, I believe I can count on one hand how many inquiries/calls I have received from women preplanning a raft trip for a group of women.  It would be wonderful to see this increase.  

I have been a Class III- IV whitewater boater for over 30 years and can share from first-hand experience that the confidence I have gained from being involved in this sport has influenced my life and empowered me in many ways.  And furthermore, when I am whitewater boating with my children, we are engaged with each other and effected by positive influences from our Creator’s awesome wilderness……  Some of our best conversations and bonding have been while we were white water boating, hiking and enjoying the out of doors together as a family.

  I would enjoy the opportunity to help you plan your next adventure trip/vacation and pay it forward!
