Always the best!
I come to this lodge frequently and it’s always been hands down the best place I’ve ever stayed. Always fairly cheap. Beautiful & wonderful. Best part is the 24 hour hot tub 😁

My stay at the Ponderosa
I've stayed at the Ponderosa before, this bring my 4th stay. I love the location and the stream next to the back porch is awesome. At night it is illuminated to bring more beauty to it. You can hot tub any hot also, if you wish. I love this place. The only thing that is a little bit of an issue is the bed is a bit to form for me, but that is still doable also.

This is a cute little lodge off Fall River Road. It was quiet. Michelle was wonderful! So sweet and accomodating. Parking can be rough, especially with all the snow, but we made it work. Comfortable room.

Disappointed
The website does not define the late check in policy and they wouldn’t answer the phones. To top it off there was not any hot water for showers
