Our family of 4 stayed in cabin #9 directly on the river. What a lovely sound of the waters rushing by. Our unit was very clean and had all we needed in the kitchenette. Very helpful staff who provided clean linens each day. Nice area to sit by the water. Deck with grills available to use as well. Extremely close to RMNP. There is a nice shortcut through town to avoid traffic nearby. Close to restaurants.

Stayed in room 10. Was perfect for us. Fantastic view of the river. Very close to the park and to town. We had bedroom, kitchenette/living room w/flat screen tv and deck was right on the river. It's an older, rather dated lodge, but it didn't matter as the seclusion and the view made up for it! Can't wait to return!

A great little lodge. Excellent location and the river running through it amazing. Yes it was a murphy bed but was pretty comfortable. The balcony view of the river was wonderful. We even had a full grown elk wader right up to the deck. Loved this place for its charm and small size.

Room Tip: ask for a river view room

We've stayed here twice and are planning another trip next summer. We've had two different rooms, one with a kitchenette one without. Both were very clean and stocked with everything needed for a nice, comfortable stay. I'll admit I liked the queen size bed in cabin one over the murphy bed in the other room, but that's just me! Loved that we could keep the door open at night and listen to the river. The owners are welcoming and had nice suggestions on what to see in the area. The Ponderosa Lodge is now our "Go To" place whenever we make a trip to Colorado. Looking forward to our next trip with the whole family!!

Room Tip: Make your reservations in advance. It's a popular place and they book up fast

Cute place,right on the river..nice hosts. Very clean.The only drawback was closeness to hwy, but didn't affect a lovely stay. Very nice area to sit outside and enjoy the sound of the river. The hosts were very welcoming without being intrusive. Good price. Would recommend!
