Peaceful. Beautiful. Secluded. Romantic. Quiet. WIFI.
My boyfriend and I spent 3 nights out here and LOVED everything about it! The guesthouse is exactly as described and feels well taken care of. We are used to tent camping, so this was like our own Shangri-La! The bathroom is huge and designed for anyone with a wheelchair. Even though I don't need one, I appreciated it was designed that way because it showed beautiful thoughtfulness on the host's part. There is a toaster oven (perfect for heating up yummy burritos from Gifford's market in Springville), microwave and small refrigerator, which for us was perfect. The host also provides WIFI, which is perfect for net-surfing and shorter YouTube videos...not so much streaming Netflix or anything longer than 20 min. on YouTube. But honestly, why be on the web when you made a choice to escape to nature?! Ponderosa is only a 15-20 min drive away from the Trail of 100 Giants. Only 10 min. drive away from Dome Rock and also, from a vantage point to see the Needles. Peppermint Falls is about 45 min. away and make sure you have a 4wd vehicle. There are so many great trails nearby and tons of exploring possibilities! Hiker's paradise! Overall, our host was so lovely and gracious and very accommodating, and the guesthouse was so comfy and close to many beautiful areas, we can't wait to come back! Thank you!!!!
