Welcome to the beautiful Ponderosa Lodge
The Ponderosa Lodge is truly unique, a respite for the visitor with a passion for nature and love of wildlife, the forest, and the Rockies. Escape the norm as you turn down the dirt drive and trundle into the forest. Nestled in the pines on the banks of Fall River, the Ponderosa Lodge is a place set apart. As you wind through the pines along Fall River nature embraces you.
The updated lodge rests on the banks of Fall River with five different room types and 2 rustic cabins that all enjoy river access. With a vision to accommodate various visitor needs the rooms range in size and room amenities. Enjoy quiet relaxation with the river always murmuring nearby. Winter guests enjoy the warmth of in room fireplaces while the summer visitor can roast smores in our outdoor fire pit.
We aim to provide an escape from the hectic elements of daily life. The timeless beauty and nature’s embrace bring you back to a simpler time. Although Wi-Fi and cell service are not perfect, given our location, it is a perfect excuse to truly get away from it all.
We are a great resource for ideas about downtown activities, shopping, restaurants, and outdoor interests in Rocky Mountain National Park, Roosevelt National Forest, horseback rides, Lake Estes and other fishing opportunities as well as the local YMCA.
