Staff are warm and welcoming, fantastic customer service. Price was amazing considering the amenities. Room was spacious, clean and well equipped. Will likely only consider the Ponderosa for next stay in Red River; highly recommend it.

We loved the location, very central to everything. We also loved that it is pet friendly, I like to take my small dog with me. Most place's don't even think about letting you have a pet, but I say, if they are well mannered and trained, why not? The room was nice, clean, and great fireplace. The managers were also very friendly and helpful. Will certainly stay there again!

We had a wonderful stay with you. The fireplace was so nice to have and everything worked great in our room. We had a nice view and just had a great time. Thank you so much. Also, I called so many places and we just could not afford to stay in them. Thank you for keeping your rates reasonable. Blessings!!

We were in the bottom floor and the smoke from the unit on top almost choked us every time they used the fireplace. Our unit would be have so much smoke we had to open the unit to get it out. My daughter-in-law wears contact lenses and she would have to remove them and put her glasses on. The kitchen stated it was completely furnished and having one small skillet that everything would stick to and one large skillet is not suffient. Spend a little money and buy some Non-stick skillets at Wal-Mart.

I loved the hominess of the room(s) but the second morning my back was absolutely killing me---and I had not skiied or anything the day before. we moved to one of the kids' beds the following two nights but they we not much better. I would love to stay again if I knew that new mattresses had been invested.

Also, the internet signal was too weak to use.

The suite of rooms accommadated all seven of us ranging from 6 to 82. The rooms were clean and were kept clean by the staff. The four bedrooms allowed the three families to have their own privacy while sharing the living, dining and kitchen areas.

The staff did a great job of keeping us happy. We had a problem with a toilet and the staff quickly fixed it.

The kitchen was well equipped with toastr, coffee maker, large pots and pans, cooking utensils. Almost all of what we needed was present.

Because we were a large group and were doing our cooking, we would have liked a bigger stove. Would like a dishwasher.

Recently we stayed at the Ponderosa for 4 nights. We had 10 people in our group and we rented the 3 bedroom. It had plenty of room and was within walking distance to everything in town. My biggest complaint is that we got phone calls from management twice telling us to be quiet. The first time was around 7pm when we arrived at the lodge and we were bringing all of our things in, and the second time was when we were just being slightly rowdy but it was 6pm. I could have possibly understood this if it would have been late in the evening. This is a 3 bedroom unit that we rented which can hold as many as 12 people. I think that management should expect noise. Also one of the heaters made a very loud popping noise at all hours of the night but management said that no one has ever complained about that and we could use the pullout couch in the living room if it bothered us too much and that we must be sensitive to sound, but I think that the Ponderosa management is super sensitive to sound! Also they have this huge hot tub but only allow 5 people in it at a time and it closes at 9pm. That was kinda a bummer. The ski resort closes at 4pm and there really isnt alot to do after that which was fine but we had to be so quiet at the Ponderosa. I would definetely rent a house if we go to Red River again. BTW Red River ski area is awesome and we had a great time other than having to be so quiet while we were at the Ponderosa Lodge.
