Bedrooms 7
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

7 Bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, Sleeps 15

Ponderosa Log cabin is rustic and roomy and has fantastic seasonal lakefrontage with a private dock. It’s 7 bedrooms make it perfect for large family reunions, or group gatherings! The home has wood laminate floors throughout the upstairs, real wood floors in the living room and tile in the kitchen and baths. The dining table will sit 12 and the picnic table on the porch will sit 10 + 2 picnic tables in the yard. Ponderosa sits on about a 3 acre peninsula that is virtually flat. on the back side yard to the dock it does slope to the lake. You can enjoy any sports here you can imagine with all this usable yard area. You can enjoy swimming, boating, kayaking, skiing, fishing, all day and when you wear out come sit on the covered porches and rock or swing til you rest then have a game of football or what ever else you can think of. All those grandchildren can and run and play and there is no one else around for them to bother. We will sometimes allow a small pet with a fee.

The Ponderosa is your perfect family friendly log home. It has also been used many times for large outdoor weddings. It has 3 acres of almost flat usable yard and it sits on a private peninsula right out on the lake. Ponderosa has a large dock for your boat, pool table, fireplace, large covered porches and many more things of interest.

Remember Douglas Lake is a Reservoir so lake levels will be low/ or gone depending on the cabin after the Labor day week until its coming back up in the spring. Be sure and talk to us about that if its a concern. We have no control over the lake .

Guestbook comments from the manager

Sixteen of us stayed at the Ponderosa Log Cabin the last week of July. What a beautiful, well-kept cabin/home. Everything worked out perfect for us. We had no issues including the slope to the lake, the roads to the Cabin, etc. We loved the two refrigerators, washer and dryer. It would be helpful to have a few hooks on the walls of bedrooms for towels and clothes. This was a first total family, lakeside trip, and the children (7) and adults all had a fun-filled and wonderful time

Its was an excellent experience for me and my family

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed staying in the cabin, there was something’s we were able to do outdoors like exploring and making s’mores by the fire pit. The cabin is very well maintained. I suggest reading the binder manual because it can help with things like trash maintenance

Amazing location!

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved the cabin, the pictures do no justice to this property. It is large in size and great space indoors and outdoors. Literally a 20-30 minute drive to do anything and everything you would and can imagine, which we loved.

The only downside was not knowing the low levels of water until we googled and seen this happens during certain times of the year. Wish we would have known, but it is not required by property to disclose after reading online. Sad to see no lake view property.

Debbie was amazing with responses and any questions we had. I highly recommend this property for booking.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay with ponderosa. It is an amazing property. Douglas lake is a reservoir lake and this is addressed on our website and also on the confirmations. This is a portion of the verbiage on the web page "Seasonal lake frontage with dock available from late March through early October.". It is also addressed on the confirmation and tells guests to please discuss with person making reservation if water frontage is important in the off season. We try very hard to make sure its clear to everyone up front. We hope you will come to visit during the lake season sometime so you can experience that as well. It is amazing and we sure appreciate you visiting and taking the time to write a review. We hope to see you soon.
