We enjoyed our stay in cabin 18 but I wouldn't stay in that particular cabin in winter until the heater is fixed. We were warned it was finicky but the second night it went out and we woke to a very cold cabin. The cabin was very clean but the mattresses are very firm and seemed to be covered in... More

We stayed there for 5 days with our twin 5 year old Grandsons. Very nice and at a great price. Cabins are very cozy and clean. Jules (the owner) is very friendly and helpful and his workers give great service. Love the location too. Trail leads down to the river and downtown is nearby. Nice and secluded with a real... More

Good location, good people and great price. Centrally located, peaceful and quiet. Clean cabins accompanied with outdoor deck with charcoal grill. Also propane grills furnished. Rooms came with cable and wi-fi connection. Many golf courses nearby. Night clubs and plenty shopping and restaurants within close walking distance.

We really enjoyed our visit here. The town is a great place to visit. We were looking for something that fit into the surroundings, and found the Ponderosa Cabins. Nice, well cared for wood cabins hidden in the trees overlooking a wooded valley. Beautiful setting. The cabins are all "originals" so it is a cabin, not the Ritz, but they... More

We were a bit nervous coming out here and were genuinely surprise. We stayed in the cottage cabin. As far as accommodations go.. It's a cabin, not a price hotel so it's quiet, home like bit simple. The staff was extremely friendly. It's warmly rustic and a great get away for two.

Maybe we just had a "bad" cabin. Cabin #14, but I feel like some updating of the bedding, etc. would make your stay much nicer. Thin sheets and rough blankets, and an old polyester spread that had patches on it where it had been "sewn up". I'm thinking bedding is pretty important for having a nice stay. It was clean,...

Ponderosa cabins were cozy and comfortable. My family and I enjoyed it very much. We stayed 3 days and 2 nights. We didn't want to leave. Note: no a/c. We were there end of June but we still enjoyed our stay. Weather was great to sit outside by the porch even though it was hot during the day, but weather... More

My wife and I have been at The Ponderosa Cabins two times this year, (2011), and are going the the 3rd time in December. These cabins are great for families or couples. It's close to the stores and it provides a place to rest when your through exploring. The inside of the cabins are what someone needs for the mountains.... More

In August of 2011 we spent a wonderful 4 days here. It's a little hard to see the entrance from the main street, but we were very happy that we did find these hidden cabins. We had everything provided to us and it was very clean and quiet. And our little dog loved it. Management was excellent and always available.... More
