Laurel Pond is the first, brand new Luxury Wilderness Lodge and RV Ultra Site lodging and RV park property in the northeast United States. Laurel Pond was designed by one of the world’s best in outdoor hospitality design, Richard Cottrell. His design was one of the first outdoor hospitality properties developed by a firm with decades of successful community planning experience.
Laurel Pond operates the same as any hospitality rental unit property, (hotel and motel rooms, RV resort sites). However, at Laurel Pond rental units are owned by individuals. The property is managed by the owners association, not a single proprietor owner. Owners themselves vacation at the property at most times.
For modern two income families, ownership at Laurel Pond is the most convenient and financially beneficial way to own a vacation getaway property. While the owners and their guests are not using the units, the units do earn self managed rental income in a no-competition market niche, and throw off excellent income tax deductions/savings to their owners. Laurel Pond is ideally located 15 to 60 minutes away from most of the residents of the Wilmington to New York megalopolis.
Laurel Pond offers something for everyone: The highest levels of rest, relaxation, and recreational activity, quality real estate property ownership, financial benefit, and owner control.
A vacation home is only valuable to a family if they can get to use it as much as they need to, easily, and affordably.
Laurel Pond operates at the high guest satisfaction rates equaling the global leaders of the vacation lodging industry.
Laurel Pond is a new relaxing affordable luxury vacation experience in the wilderness, surrounded by dozens of nearby globally known attractions and other rich outdoor recreation opportunities, which has been enjoyed by many residents and visitors to the New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia megalopolis region.
Laurel Pond is very easy to reach off exit 16 of I-195, 12 minutes from exit 7A of the NJ turnpike and is centrally located only 15 to 45 minutes to all points between Staten Island, Philadelphia and north of the Atlantic City Expressway.
