Mountains

Ponderosa Place is an amazing getaway for families, the outdoor enthusiast, or anyone wanting to get away for a peaceful stay in the mountains.  The home is situated on 7 acres surrounded by national forest.  There are hundreds of miles of hiking, biking and ATV trails right out the door.  We encourage guests to take advantage of the wooded trails during their stay and spend time enjoying nature.  We have also equipped the home with adult and kid friendly games, books and DVDs to encourage families and friends to spend quality time together and relax away from normally busy lives.  Please take the time to read the check in and out procedures as well as the house rules.

  • If you break a glass or plate, just let us know.  We understand accidents happen.

  • Please report any property damages/accidents to us ASAP.  A delay in reporting may increase costs of cleaning or repair.  Please enjoy the house, but treat it respectfully.

Thermostat

·  No air conditioning.  In the mountains, it typically cools off quickly.  We have several fans you can use in the master bedroom closet. You can also open the windows at night, which is a great way to cool off the house on warm days.

·  When you check-out, please remember to set the thermostat to 62 degrees F. The lower we keep our operational costs, the more we can pass on savings to our guests. 

·  The lower level will stay cooler than the main and upper level.  There is an electric heater that you may use if you need more warmth.  Please remember to turn it off when you are not using and when you leave.

Gas Fireplace

·  Yay!  Who doesn’t love a fireplace on a cold day.

·  Please use the knob to turn on and off the fireplace.

Getting There

·  The property is off the beaten bath.  The address will NOT get you accurately to the property.  Please follow the directions sent in your email to ensure you find the property easily.  An email will be sent 3 days in advance with directions. 

·  The last 4 miles to the house are on unmaintained country roads.  They are bumpy.  It is advised to have a high clearance vehicle. Low clearance vehicles may not make it. Please consider this when driving here and if you rent a car, please explain this to the company so you rent the appropriate vehicle.  

·  4-wheel drive is strongly recommended in the winter. The roads are NOT plowed. We cannot be held responsible if you get stuck.
