Updated on Dec 11, 2019

Ponderosa Log Cabin Sleeps Six Max.

Located in: Palomar Mountain
Restful. Relaxing. Romantic.

Dreaming of slipping away to an enchanting log cabin in the middle of a beautiful forest? The owners designed and built the cabin from cedar logs milled on the property. It could be a movie set! Have you ever watched Bonanza? It was filmed on the Ponderosa in Northern California. This is Palomar Mountain's 'Ponderosa' where Little Joe, and all the rest would feel right at home putting their feet up at this charming log cabin.

Extremely private, you access the property through a locked gate and travel a paved road a mile and a half to the cabin. If you are looking for privacy, you have found it!

Step into the old west! The great room is open to the kitchen with a welcoming wood stove that you really appreciate when the snow is falling. There is a big dining table to gather 'round for meals or for old-fashioned fun when you get those games out. The younger set might enjoy sitting at the counter that is a slab of cedar from the property.

The kitchen is fully stocked for you with everything you should need for cooking and serving your meals. Stove, oven, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, crock pot, beautiful new set of cookware, all you need to cook and serve your meals. Step out on the patio and a new propane barbecue is waiting.

The walk-in level has the large master bedroom with a very comfortable queen bed also a full bath with a tub and shower. Upstairs is a game and sleeping room with another queen bed, two twins, and a sofa. A 42 inch TV DVD player, high speed internet and a telephone. Since this is such a remote location most cell phones don't work so you're all set just in case you need to dial out or check your messages.

Lots of room to roam in the wide open spaces. Look out to the next ridge and you can see the world famous observatory, and High Point Fire Lookout. Originally built in the 1930's it was recently restored and now back in operation.

A wonderfully inviting tree swing is waiting for kids of all ages, and a very creative picnic table also made with cedar from the land. Horse shoes are fun to be played by all.

It is a star-gazers dream with our dark sky making the stars seem so much closer here on the mountain top.

The Ponderosa is a nature-lovers paradise with deer, wild turkeys and lots of wildlife and wide variety of birds that also call this twenty acres 'home'. Are you a photographer? You will love it here.

We have several field trips to local farms to see horses, sheep, goats, chickens, spinning and weaving, coffee roasting and carving and much more! The owners/story tellers make it a delightful 'step back in time'.

Our first guests over Thanksgiving left notes before we opened this website:

“Thank you so much for opening your wonderful cabin for us. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here in the cozy cabin on your beautiful property. You really created something amazing, and we marvel at the craftsmanship that went into this cabin! Just a gorgeous, peaceful place! We hope to be back some day! All the best to you, Birte and Jim and Kids”

We had such a great time in the Mountains. Thank you for taking the time and sharing all the information. We visited Cecelia's farm. Such nice people and great experience. Kids had so much fun there. Getting warm, fresh eggs right from the chicken's nest was the best experience for Adam. Thank you, Katerina, Robert, Adam and Lucas

We're looking forward to doing our very best to make your time at the Ponderosa a wonderful holiday as a treasured memory forever!
