Billiards, darts, a card table and board games await the savvy players. Located on the top level, this room has a view of the Great Room and a window that looks out at a neighboring field of grapes where sunsets can be seen.
A floor to ceiling rock fireplace takes center stage. Two large, comfortable couches face each other for easy conversations. Books on local history are on the shelves to discover.
Relax in the quiet, peaceful hot tub room with lots of windows. Let the multiple jets soothe the muscles after an adventurous day exploring the surrounding area.
Brighten your morning with coffee in the open air gazebo, where you can plan the day's adventures, or reminiscence with a glass of wine at sunset, all at a natural gas fire pit dining table.
WRAP AROUND PORCH
Pick a spot, any spot, to sit and relish the scenery. Watch the hummingbirds play and have a drink at the feeders. Try to identify the many birds singing or listen to the breeze through the pines. In the evening you can hear the frogs, crickets and owls.

Up for a small hike? The apple orchard offers year-round beauty. In the fall, guests only, may fill a bag of "you-pick" apples, fresh off the tree to take home.
TAKE A WALK
Enjoy several short paths around Ponderosa Ridge that wind around the many different flowering bushes and trees. Take a book and sit at one of the benches along the path, just because you can. Don't forget your camera!
