Guestbook comments from the manager
We stayed at the Ponderosa for a family reunion from 7/20/13 to 7/27/13. This is the third time we have stayed at a cabin on Douglas Lake. We had family in from New Jersey, Florida, Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio. The cabin was very large and clean. It also had a very large assortment of dishes and cooking utensils. The yard was large and very scenic. We had a photographer come out to the cabin to take family pictures. I was very pleased with the service we received from Debbie and her staff at Lakefront Cabins. The only negatives about the place was the road to the cabin and the access to the dock. The road to the cabin(Parrot Chapel Road) is without a doubt, the worst road I have ever driven on. The road condition is ok, but it has more twists and turns than you can imagine. It is approximately 3.5 miles long, but will take you at least 12 minutes to drive it. I know this is out of Lakefront Cabins control, but I wanted to make mention of it because we had over half of our party get car sick when traveling on this road. If you plan on any activities in Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg, make sure you bring lots of Dramamine. The other issue was getting down to the dock. The hillside is fairly steep, and then there is sharp rocks and slick clay at the bottom. It was fine for most of our party, but my parents are older(77 & 74) and weren’t able to get down there to go on a pontoon ride. Again, I know there is no way to control this with fluctuating water levels, but I just wanted to make mention it for any other “seniors”. Overall this is a very nice cabin, but I think I would rent a different one next time because of the roads.
