The ponds is a beautiful resort that I highly recommend. The 2 bedroom unit that we stayed in was very clean, welcomming, and well-stocked. We have more than enough dishes and cooking utensils, and there was a bar area with multiple wine glasses. It was fairly spacious with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (one of which had a whirlpool tub and was quite large), and a lounge area in the loft. There was also a nice fireplace. The view from every unit is spectacular! The lake is gorgeous and extremely peaceful. Everything about the resort feels very tranquil and serene. As for the public areas, there is an outdoor tennis court, an indoor and outdoor pool (the indoor pool has a sauna room and hot tub), a beautiful library, an exercise room, a canoe and rowboat to take out on the lake, and a computer room with two computers for internet access. The grounds are immaculate, and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. It was also very quiet and relaxing, with mostly retirees for guests (please note that this was in November, and I am sure the summer months are much busier). The scenery in Lenox is breathtaking (especially with the fall colors), and there are many different places to visit. I would HIGHLY recommend this resort!!
