Ponderosa Place is located on two private hillside acres with panoramic views to the north, east and south. The ponderosa pines stand as sentinels through the property providing privacy, shade and color. Backyard aspen also quake in the breeze. The large east and south facing deck provides a warm quiet place for coffee on crisp mountain mornings, and, transitions to afternoon shade as the sun moves to the west.
The main level of the home has a wonderful great room, dining room and kitchen that opens to the wooden deck. For groups of four, there are two large bedrooms, one king and one queen, located on this level each with a private vanity and toilet. The pullman style bath provides a shared tub/shower combination between the two vanity areas. The bath area is accessed through your private vanity area. To reach this level, there is an interior stairway through the garage or an exterior stairway on the deck. The property is not suited for those who have difficulty with stairs.
For groups of six, adding the lower area of the home provides a large third queen bedroom, sitting room and bath with vanity, shower and toilet. The sitting room has a 32" flat panel TV. If you are traveling in a group, this area provides a nice quiet private separation from the main floor.
A spacious garage is available as you arrive to store your bicycles, ice cooler, fishing and other mountain gear. This is an impeccably clean garage with carpet (not for autos).
Ponderosa Place is entering the vacation rental market for her sixth season. You'll find everything you need in the kitchen from a spice rack to a blender.
Games are available for quiet time and rainy afternoons - cards, dominos, Yahtzee.
The laundry room on the lower level is available for your use.

About Steve and Laurie Shingle
It has been our dream to own mountain property in Lake City Colorado since we first traveled there decades ago. While continuing our careers in Utah, we've decided to open our home to Lake City visitors over the coming years until we can retire.
Steve and Laurie Shingle purchased this House in 2012
Why Steve and Laurie Shingle chose Lake City
Ponderosa Place provides high views of the surrounding mountains. While it is close to town and all the services, it offers privacy not found in town in the busy summer season.

Great Home, Great Location, Vacation Too Short
We were very fortunate to have had such a great experience with Home Away and Teresa Pippen when booking and staying at this location. This was our first experience using Home Away and it was perfect.
After my first phone conversation with Teresa I was at ease that everything would work out perfectly. Teresa provided me with email updates the week or so before our vacation to update us on the current weather conditions. The directions to the home that she provided were perfect. It was simple to find. The home is as described and the pictures that you see on Home Away are current. The home is very comfortable. Both Teresa and the owners have thought of everything to make certain those visiting have everything they need during their stay. I only wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you Teresa for everything!
Our family stayed at Ponderosa in December and we couldn't have been more comfortable. The home stays warm and cozy and has plenty of room for a large family. The home provided everything we needed to feel relaxed. The views were amazing and the resident deer and Lab gave the home an added treat. We will be back!
My entire family stayed here over the holidays. Nine of us comfortably slept, cooked and played in this beautiful, roomy house. We'd do it again in a heartbeat. Theresa was great to work with.
Beautiful Mountain Home!
Our week at Ponderosa Place couldn't have been more comfortable and relaxing! Extremely well cared for home in the trees with everything we needed. Enjoyed the spacious kitchen and living area! Owners have paid great attention to details. Wonderful windows make you feel like you are up in the trees! Loved our time on the deck! Looking forward to returning soon! A perfect place to enjoy family and friends!
Could Not Have Been Better!
We had the pleasure of staying at Ponderosa Place June 15-19, 2014 and had a fabulous time. The house is attractive, spacious, very clean, and extremely well organized and supplied. It's close to town, yet peaceful and quiet. We enjoyed the deck overlooking the back yard and the deer that came up in the evenings. There is a lot to do and explore in this area -- the Alpine Loop is a wonderful all day adventure with amazing scenery; the road from Slumgullion Pass to Powderhorn is also a treat; and Lake City itself is charming. Our only complaint is that we should have stayed longer, but am certain we will return and stay at Ponderosa Place again! Marshall & Janet
