About the owner: My husband Joe & I live in San Diego, California, and are both huge outdoor enthusiasts. Our hobbies include hiking, biking, skiing/snowboarding, horseback riding, backpacking, traveling, and training our two German Shepherd dogs.
Why the Owner Chose Ponderosa: My husband and I found Ponderosa two years ago, sort of by mistake, and instantly fell in love with the surrounding area and all its splendor. Ponderosa truly is one of the last great California mountain towns, tucked away amidst millions of acres of National Forest. Just steps away from our front door are miles of endless trails that will take you to many points of interest, including the Giant Sequoia National Monument, Needles Lookout, the Quaking Aspen meadow, Slate Mountain, Dome Rock, Camp Nelson, the Golden Trout Wilderness Pack Station, and the Trail of 100 Giants.
From the Giant Sequoias and Ponderosa Pines to the Quaking Aspens, this area offers serenity & peace, and an opportunity to disconnect for a few days and enjoy nature. We hope you enjoy the cabin as much as we do, and that your time here invigorates you and recharges your batteries as much as it does for us.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: There are so many wonderful, cozy things about this cabin that we love, and too many to name here. Some of our most favorite things, however, are the large stone hearth fireplace, the giant floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room, the rustic accents, and the warm feel of it all. We're also at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, which offers privacy and opens up to the numerous trails beyond. But most of all, I think it's the view from the deck that we love the most, which overlooks a grove of Quaking Aspens and Ponderosa Pines. We may hike all day, and then come home to the cabin for a BBQ dinner on the deck before settling in and relaxing next to the fireplace.
