About the Property

Cross Country Skiing, Mountain Biking, Fishing, Dog Sledding, Snowmobile

This is a guest room separate from the main house known here in Ponderosa as 'The Aspen Ark'. Since it faces a large meadow surrounded by Aspen Pines.
This is an unusual architectural masterpiece built in the 70`s, then known as 'The Bear Cave'
The room is not a cabin but is a very private guest hotel room adjacent to the main house. There is a microwave, toaster oven, mini fridge and coffee maker.
A step above camping with a full size bathroom, giant shower, nice king size bed and sofa. Dishes and utensils are available in the room.
Very private since the viewing areas are on the opposite side of the property
looking into the Sequoia National Forest.
Located at the top of the Sequoia National Forest near Quaking Aspen Meadow and Peppermint Creek Campground, this retreat is only 3 1/2 hours from Los Angeles. This is a mountain meadow guest house and unlike other properties in the area is available all year. Activities include Cross Country Sking ( with rentals available) Dog Sledding, Sledding, Snowmobiling, ATV, Fishing, Hiking, Hunting and Mountain Biking the famous Nelson Trail and Freeman Grove Trail. I pick up riders downhill in Camp Nelson. This is a guest house cabin located adjacent to the owners home at the end of a culdesac with forest access on three sides. Very private with access to Needles Lookout just behind the property, Freeman Grove, Dome rock, Peppermint Creek and The Golden Trout Wilderness!
Forest access from three sides and private trail will lead you to all the great trails for all winter and summer sports.
