We have stayed at the Ponderosa several times, twice in the last year. The staff is always friendly and willing to help out. The rooms are clean and comfortable. It is right in the middle of Red River, so walking isn't a problem. The rooms with kitchens are stocked with everything you will need. It is one of our favorite places to stay in Red River.

Room Tip: The suites with 1 bedroom and kitchen come with a queen size futon, that is pretty comfortable. Thi...

We spent 3 days there during the Mardi Gras 2012 and we had a blast. Room was clean, and even if we didn't use the kitchen much, it was definitely a plus. Pretty close to the slopes (we walked to the lift house every day). We highly recommend the place.

The Pioneer Lodge is located in the center of Red River. The owner/desk clerk were extremely helpful and friendly. The 1 bedroom suite was very spacious and plenty of room for our party of three. The room was sparkling clean, and there were plenty of towels and bedding. The bed was not very comfortable, however the owner did inform my husband that they are preparing to replace all of the mattresses at the Lodge. We would have no problem with staying here again.

The Ponderosa Lodge was wonderful for our Minister's Breakaway last week. The rooms were clean and comfotable. The office personnel went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. We stayed for three days and had a great time!

Room Tip: The rooms with kitchenettes and fireplaces are wonderful!
