Green Pond is an all natural “Pond” formed by glacial action some 10- 15 thousand years ago. Much of the northwest shore rises steeply 150 – 200 feet and is strewn with large boulders, typical of glacial areas. To the southwest, is an area of wetlands, further limiting the developable area around this unique body of water.
The community of Green Pond consists of two stockholder homeowner associations, The Green Pond Corporation and The Lake End Corporation. They work in tandem and together own the lake and all the property surrounding the lake, as far as the eye can see. When you purchase a home in either corporation at Green Pond, you become a Stockholder. All stockholders have an interest in the common lands which surround the lake and community. Green Pond is a private community and is not available to the public. To use the lake and/or facilities, one must be a stockholder of the community or a guest.
Generations of Green Pond residents have enjoyed the numerous recreational activities that bring a family and community together such as swimming, sailing, water skiing, fishing, tennis and motor boating. A ball field, hiking and cross country ski trails are located within the community. Golf, horseback riding and winter skiing are just a short distance away.
There is an active Community Club which sponsors many year-round activities as well as a year-round Yacht Club which serves as the social center of the community and is host to sailing regattas in several classes.
Green Pond is a golf cart friendly community!
