Embraced by towering Ponderosa Pines, on the banks of the Fall River, and cupped between rocky Castle Mountain and pine-covered Deer Mountain, the Ponderosa Lodge is a place set apart. You feel it as soon as you turn down the drive, a one-lane road that winds through the pines and along the river. Snag some brown trout in the Fall River or hike through the mountains. A riverside picnic area and a patio with gas and charcoal grills allow you to enjoy the outdoors in the summer.


In the winter, the Ponderosa offers a warm respite after a day exploring Rocky Mountain National Park on foot, on snowshoes, or on cross country skis.


Only an hour's drive from Eldora Mountain ski area, the Ponderosa Lodge and the town of Estes Park serve as home base for downhill, telemark, and cross country skiers.
