The most comfortable, affordable option for families seeking the mountains
About Ron Tenney
We have been part-time residents of Forest Lakes since 1999. We love everything about coming here in each of the seasons for various reasons. It has been a gathering place for our family and friends. We have five sons and thankfully, 2 of them lived and raised their families for a few years in the area. Ron is a veterinarian and Marilyn is a counselor. We built this home, intending to make it our summer home, but ended up using it for guests.
Ron Tenney purchased this House in 2008
Why Ron Tenney chose Forest Lakes Estates
This home is on a quiet road in Forest Lakes, set far back from the roads in the area. When quads are traveling in the area, the prevailing wind pushes all dust away. We wanted to have a huge deck so that we can be comfortable just lounging around on the summer evenings. There is a nice view of the pines both in front, behind and to the west of the cabin.
What makes this House unique
There are comfortable beds for 13 people (counting children) But the great room and loft can accommodate more (there are two couches). We have a BBQ as well as an outdoor firepit. If you chose to stay with us, please GET OUTSIDE and enjoy nature. But if the weather is not cooperating, we have wi-fi and TV with access to Roku, Netflix, and other streaming media. The spacious, panoramic view through the windows brings the Ponderosa forest to you.

Summer Loop Property
Great property. everything was as stated in the listing. We had great weather during the stay. Saw elk walking past the front of the property. Ron was excellent in the whole rental process. Would give 10 stars if the rating went that high! Thank you!!
fantastic Log Home
Overall the experience exceeded our expectations. The home and surrounding property are more spectacular than the photos show. We've already booked this property for next year for our annual event.
Thank you! I am glad we met and look forward to hosting you in 2020 and beyond. ~ Ron
Perfect home for family togetherness.
Our family had an awesome relaxing weekend. We enjoyed a long walk in the shade of the tall pines. Wildlife and wild flowers a plenty to enjoy. The house was perfect for gathering and cooking together.
Thank you so much Cathleen. I hope we can meet next time you come up. Ron

Wonderful week in the mountains
We had an amazing vacation week here. The cabin is wonderful. Surrounded by great scenery and lots of fun things to do outdoors. We went hiking, rented UTVs, went to a couple different lakes. It was a great week. The cabin is furnished with everything you need for a great get away. We prepared and ate most of our meals at the cabin. Beds were comfy. Cabin was very clean. Ron was a great host. Can't wait to go back.
Thank you, Ryan. It was great to have you and your family at our cabin. Please come again. Ron
The popular ponds near Forest Lakes are just a short walk from our cabin. There are lots of places to hike, ride mountain bikes and quads. The deck on our cabin is very inviting to sit back with a good book and enjoy the fresh air.
