We were warmly greeted upon arrival and given a basket for our Labrador( biscuits, dogs bags and a sheet to cover the bed. The room is spacious and well appointed. Our 13 year old Lab loved that she could walk into the room without steps and that the sliding door opened to a beautiful large green lawn that was perfect...

Enjoyed the hotel. Clean, big, with comfortable beds. When we return we will stay at the same hotel. A room with a view of the llamas. We used the outside hot tub that was clean and very nice. Loved the Ponderosa Pines.

Spacious room, no elevator, a herd of resident Llamas you can visit, huge grassy area loaded with trees outside the rooms. We didn't eat the Continental Breakfast but it looked about average. Saw some squirrels, but supposedly there are deer that roam through the grounds regularly.

Pleasantly surprised with the quality of our room. Two queen beds yet the room still seemed quite spacious. First floor rooms have a sliding glass door that opens directly onto the beautiful grounds. Since we were on the first floor we heard a bit of noise from the guests overhead, but overall the area is very quiet and peaceful. We...
