This is a NO SMOKING property inside or outside.
This beautiful cozy home in Woodland Park features pine paneling, slate floors, open floor plan and skylight, beautiful new sunroom, a secluded deck in the woods, fenced backyard with a steep hill and natural vegetation, and the joy and solitude of being in the woods, yet less than a mile from groceries and restaurants. Relax and rejuvenate in this lovely home decorated with Southwestern art and rustic furniture. Prepare your meals in the fully furnished kitchen, grill and eat on the deck while viewing deer and fox, or dine out at the many area restaurants. There are plenty of videos, games, novels to help you relax inside during the brief mountain summer thunderstorms. Ponderosa Retreat has WIFI and excellent cell phone reception. This mountain getaway is perfect for families or couples, and accommodates up to six people. No pets and no smoking in this home or on the property; but those with pet allergies should be aware that a dog lives in the home in the winter.
An added bonus is minimizing your environmental impact in this GREEN home: recycled trash, low VOC paints, non-toxic cleaning products, organic staples in the kitchen, energy efficient appliances, natural materials throughout, and more! Guests do not have access to the garage or basement level of the home, including washer/dryer so it is not suitable for long stays.
