A slice of heaven
"We have just completed our 6th or 7 th stay at the slice of paradise that is the Ponderosa.It is a most amazing place with warm, very comfortable accomadations and the most fabulous view of the mountains you can imagine.We come from busy south Florida and we instantly are relaxed upon arriving.On this trip, I needed additional help with some medical supplies and both Paula and Jim were most helpful to make sure that everything went smoothly for us.They always have.I am very grateful to them for welcoming me through the years.I consider it my home away from home.Take my word for it, take your morning coffee out on the porch and get absorbed in the awesome beauty.Put some wood in the fireplace in the evening and feel the warmth.There is a wonderful supply of movies available for every taste.The road up can be an adventure on it's own, but I have never had a problem getting up there.The alternate road is longer, but easier with wonderful views as well.Folks, as you can tell, we absolutely love the Ponderosa."

"We just stayed at the cabin for 3 nights. The place could not have been nicer. The set up is nice, it is clean, comfortable and well equipped. It has a wonderful view - whether it is the clouds in the valleys in the morning or the stars from the hot tub at night. We really enjoyed grilling out and eating on the deck. Took days trips to hike the park, Joyce Kilmer Memorial forest, and Fontana Dam. It was a very relaxing. I did not meet the Hosts, but they were fast to respond to my questions via text."

"My wife and I spent a month long sabbatical at this amazing place. Really, there are no words to describe the experience that we had. I'm 55 years old and I felt a sense of awe and wonder that I haven't felt since I was a young child. The home, the location, the hospitality of the Mittens, just everything was much more than I deserved. Better hurry up and pick your dates in 2016 because I might rent it for the Summer and Fall if they will let me!"

"We thoroughly enjoyed our time at "A World Apart"! The cabin is cozy, attractive, and clean. The kitchen has plenty of dishes, pots and pans, and cooking utensils to do as much cooking as you want. We also enjoyed using the grill for cooking out one evening. The front porch is beautiful for sitting out on and we enjoyed the hot tub after days of hiking. The surrounding property is beautiful for hiking and enjoying great views! We can't wait to visit again!"
