Garry and Connie are absolutely wonderful people. They help you feel like you are right at home and go the extra mile in anyway that they can. Their home is your home. They bent over backwards for us to help us when things weren't going quite right for us. I just can't say enough good about them. My wife is... More

My daughter and I were welcomed like family and spoiled like grandchildren. The lodge is an experience itself with such attention to detail. The themed suites were beautifully decorated. Beds were very, very comfortable. Michele makes a scrumptious BIG breakfast in several courses that allows you to relax and enjoy your meal. I loved recycled art and the dining room... More

My husband and I had the true pleasure of staying at the Ponderosa Lodge. The rooms are top notch. The hosts are incredible. The lodge is amazing, complete with wine room, and a theater room with over 3000 movies to choose from. If this isn't enough to make you want to stay then the breakfast will be. 3 courses of... More

Michele and Jay are wonderful hosts. Friendly, flexible, efficient, and competent in taking care of people. The food was plenty and culinary in style, and the grounds were very comfortable for us. The theatre was the best!! We plan to return hopefully within the year since we felt entirely at home on the Ponderosa.

All the previous reviews you read here are right on the mark. Hosts kind and attentive. Food great. Attention to detail. Great movie theater. Interesting hosts with fascinating backgrounds and fun people with whom to have a conversation. It is hard to come up with any cons at all, but here are two very minor ones, and certainly not anything... More

This is a very unique property with a wonderful theme. The hosts were most kind and attentive. The food was terrific and portions very ample. The whole experience was first class. We will definitely return and in the meantime, tell our friends.

The house and the property are fantastic. Spacious, rustic and with all of the modern amenities you could want. Michelle is wonderful and the breakfast is spectacular. It's as good a B&B experience as I've ever had. Too bad I couldn't stay longer.

Wow!!!! What an unbelievable experience!!! The attention to detail is everywhere. The rooms are magnificent, towels and linens are all the very best. The movie theater is to die for, it has eight electric reclining chairs a lobby with snacks and hot dogs and popcorn and a screen that must be 150 inches. Breakfast was delicious, with farm fresh eggs... More

The Ponderosa Lodge Bed And Breakfast was beyond what we expected. My husband Ron and I have chose to stay at B&B's for the purpose of personal attention and for a calm relaxing enviroment. I chose the Ponderosa Lodge because of the beauty of lodge and the quiet of the country setting. Upon our arrival Jay and Michele make you... More

Jay and Michelle are two of the most wonderful hosts we have ever had the pleasure to meet. When we first arrived to their beautiful home until the moment we left they were so gracious, helpful and kind. They made us feel like family, took care of me when I didn't feel well and spoiled us rotten! The rooms are... More
