     Beautiful Ponderosa Highway Retreat is a log home tucked in the mountains on a heavily  wooded 10 acres. 1/2 mile off of Scenic Hwy. 21, 16 miles north of Boise City and 11 miles south of Idaho City.  Private access to 1500 acres of the Boise National Forest! Secluded living at its best!

     To get to your destination you will cross over a private bridge taking you over Mores Creek. A swimming hole underneath a majestic granite outcropping awaits for you to enjoy during your stay. You will not see another home on your way to your vacation destination!

     The home is 2200 sq. ft. with an 800 sq. ft.  furnished deck for stargazing and watching the abundant wildlife. Elk, turkey and deer are among the most frequent visitors. There are 3 bedrooms, 2 living rooms, 2 full bathrooms, a cast iron claw foot tub, large dining room with table seating for 4 and 2 at the breakfast bar, large kitchen with all the cookware, and a beautiful atrium/yoga room with stunning views!

     The master bedroom and upstairs living room have large smart flat screens. You have high speed wireless internet available throughout the house with enough bandwidth for making calls via WiFi and streaming your favorite shows on your preferred service. Each bathroom comes fully equipped with the necessities including shampoo, conditioner, body wash and lotion. Clean towels, wash rags and hand towels are available for your use. There is a washer, dryer and ironing board with iron also available to you. The kitchen has cookware, utensils, dining ware, glassware, coffee maker, microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher, gas stove and oven. Kitchen hand towels and dish soap are also provided.

     We want you to enjoy your peaceful stay at Ponderosa Highway Retreats. During the winter months, 4 wheel drive/all wheel drive is mandatory and chains are highly advised. We have the proper equipment to rescue you if you get stuck for a nominal fee. However, this will mean a half mile hike up for your phone to reach WiFi signal so please take our advice and chain up during ice and snow!

     We hope to see you soon at Ponderosa Hwy. Retreats
