“Beyond what we expected!”
Reviewed 17 January 2012

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 feel welcome the moment you walk into their lodge. The rooms are are so relaxing, and the attention to detail is just wonderful. The breakfasts will satisfy you for the entire day as they are so delicious and filling! Ron and I got to try some new entrees we never had before, and believe me you won't be disappointed! Fresh coffee and snacks thoughout the day to enjoy. Evenings relaxing with a glass of wine in the great room enjoying great conversation. Later we would enjoy a movie in the theater room that is jaw dropping incredible. Jay is an amazing host to your any questions you might have on any movie from the 4,000 selection he has. You can also enjoy the movie with the many choices of snacks, popcorn, icecream, hotdogs. Just like the real thing! Ending your evening with a relaxing soak in the hottub out in it's own little retreat. Falling asleep in a bed that is heaven tops off the whole experience. Jay and Michele created an amazing B&B with the thought of what they would like to have if they were in the guests shoes. I would like to end this review with a huge thank you to Jay and Michele for opening your home and hearts to us and sharing a unforgetable experience. We didn't just find a place that we could getaway from it all, we found amazing wonderful new friends. We have definitly found our slice of heaven at the Ponderosa Lodge Bed and Breakfast.

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 all so beautiful. There were snacks and drinks in every room. We had three course breakfasts every morning. The wine and hor d'oeuvres were amazing. Jay is an amazing chef and Michelle bakes the most delicious pastries. Michelle even helped avert a crisis and fixed my dress! We had a our own hot tub time and watched a lot of movies in the awesome theater next to the wine cellar! They have thousands of movies to choose from and will make hot dogs and popcorn to make the experience even better. We recommend this beautiful home and these amazing hosts to anyone who needs an amazing weekend away to just relax and enjoy quite time with two beautiful people. Thank you Michelle and Jay for such great memories and such a perfect weekend.

We've stayed in some excellent B & Bs in the last 25 years, but this one tops them all, hands down. Although comparitively new at. hosting in their B & B, the host/owners had an uncanny ability for understanding and meeting our needs during our stay The room was very comfortable with easy controls for room temperature/air flow. The bed was wonderful, and the newly remodeled bathroom was excellent. Everything was exceptionally clean, almost to the point of making you think it was brand new and you were the first guests to occupy the room.The amenities throughout the house were wonderful, especially the home theater room, which has nightly movies, a wall to wall screen, lap robes and leather recliners, and state of the art everything! The pre-breakfast tray outside the room upon awakening was definitely a nice touch, and the three-course breakfast was perfect. Considering the amenities and the attention to detail, it was worth every penny of the cost of our stay. We are already looking for an opportunity to return, hopefully for several days next time.

My husband and I stayed here on the first night of our road trip this summer and we were really spoilt. Jay and Michelle are real hosts and ensure you are very well cared for.

The rooms are comfortable with everything you need including drinks and snacks and the beds are wonderfully perfect for a good nights sleep. Some might find the bathroom a tad small, but there is everything you require in there and the towels are the softest I have ever experienced!

Evening wine and hospitality should be enjoyed and the breakfast is a wonderful three course affair...so don't plan on a large dinner the night before....as you will want to take advantage of the well prepared and very tasty food.

All in all a gret place to stay...not cheap...but I feel it is worth it.

We decided to try a Bed and Breakfast for the very first time and were soooo happy about our choice. We were treated so special by both Michele and Jay who opened their home and their hearts to us. The Lodge takes you back into a time of just breathing easier......slowing down long enough to play a game of Parcheesi and talking while sharing wine and wonderful cheeses and meats.
The rooms are set up for privacy with decor that causes you to feel so special. Each room has it's own bathroom, which is not always the case at bed and breakfasts. And we woke up each morning to a tray of goodies before an elegant breakfast. Well worth the money.

What a gem we found! We were spoiled for three days of fun and relaxation in a gorgeous part of our country. Jay and Michele are gracious innkeepers who make you feel like family in addition to serving scrumptious breakfasts, snacks in the room, and evening wine and hors d'oeuvres. Besides great food, the grounds and deck are spacious, movie library is extensive, and the rooms are very private. We would highly recommend the Ponderosa Lodge, and have already told many friends and family about it. Can't wait to return ourselves!

Ponderosa Lodge is in a class of it's own. We were so impressed with the beautiful home and with Jay and Michele as innkeepers. There is so much attention to detail--the house is immaculate and beautifully decorated. The rooms are very nice. There are lots of things that make it special...great linens. toiletries, snacks in the room and in the common areas. Probably what stands out the most is how quickly we relaxed. Jay and Michele were so gracious. They have a very good sense of people and knew exactly how to make us feel welcome without being intrusive. We planned to spend one night with them and by that evening we both agreed to stay another night. We're so glad we did & we'll be back!
