The Ponderosa Lodge is the ultimate ranch getaway. A step above luxury camping, the open floorplan offers everything you could want in a home away from home.


Relaxation at it's best!

Enjoy the rustic atmosphere while you clean up in a log-sided shower, relax in the master bedroom (with closet) or kick back in the living room with a 55" flat screen television, cable, and wi-fi. Beautiful windows give you a breath-taking view of our magnificent horses grazing at pasture against a backdrop of forest. Every moment is spent in an atmosphere of peace and tranquility.

The Ponderosa Lodge is fully furnished. Full bath, washer and dryer and an additional bedroom for family and friends or for use as an office during your vacation. The Lodge can sleep up to 8 comfortably, making it a great place for family retreats and cozy weekends away.

More than just a Lodge...

In addition to beautiful accommodations, the Ponderosa Lodge also offers a picture-perfect view of the surrounding Pennsylvania countryside. With Bald Eagle State Park nearly just outside your door, you will have the chance to experience the beauty and majesty of nature whenever you wish.

"Our stay at the Ponderosa Lodge was so fantastic we turned it into an annual vacation spot. The Ponderosa Lodge itself is so welcoming, safe, relaxing that you never want to leave. Then to have 12 horses staring in your front windows when you wake up is an experience you don't soon forget! The 2nd story deck was the most enormous, beautiful covered deck I have ever seen. We spent hours just reading and barbeque grilling while soaking in the stunning views. At night we roasted s'mores at the campfire pit. And in between all of it we booked horseback trail rides into the mountains. The first trail ride has us hooked so we booked 2 more right after it. All in all this is one of our family's favorite vacation spots." Carolyn Pearson, Allentown, PA
"The Ponderosa Lodge and Wildfire Ranch are a perfect storm for a vacation you will never forget. The lodge is rustic, rugged and yet comfortable and the views from your front door will stay in your dreams for months. The ranch itself is stunning and reminds you of the Ponderosa from Bonanza. We rode horses during our brief stay and could not recall a time when our family had enjoyed ourselves more! Later around the campfire we laughed and talked about how much fun we had even though we were scared during the trail ride. Our weekend at Wildfire Ranch brought our family closer together, something that I will always cherish." Bryan Reese, Pittsburgh, PA
"We love the Ponderosa Lodge every year for our PSU football games. The Ponderosa is only 25 minutes from Beaver Stadium and is so wonderfully unique and different from staying in a hotel – it's worth the drive" Ken Stanton, Washington, DC
"The Ponderosa Lodge is really Cynthia and Ariel Sweeley. These two ladies welcome you in a way that takes all stress away and makes you feel accepted. Everything is provided in this place right down to the toilet paper ; how can anyone not love that? The spaciousness of the lodge is outstanding, de-stressing and peaceful. The entire atmosphere of serenity makes you want to come back very soon." Lisa Whitmer, Baltimore, MD
