The Ponderosa is the premier rental lodge at Roddy Tree Ranch Resort, featuring beautiful Guadalupe River views from the family room, dining area, and multiple outdoor porches. Enjoy the comfortable, spacious Ponderosa and the adjacent sunlight-filled Bunkhouse with up to 14 family members and friends!
This property is perfect for large families, family reunions and multi-family vacations.
Please note: Rentals to 9 or more guests will include use of the adjacent Bunkhouse at $100/night for the duration of your stay. Reservations with 8 or fewer guests include use of the Ponderosa only, unless you request the Bunkhouse and pay the $100/night add-on fee. (We do not rent the Bunkhouse separately from the Ponderosa, only as an add-on.)
Enjoy the beautiful Hill Country riverfront setting - or explore the many attractions in the surrounding area including Kerrville, Fredericksberg, Bandera, and San Antonio. Enjoy quiet evenings reading by the fireplace, or stargazing on one of the porches.
The Ponderosa has plenty of room for relaxing indoors and out, making it the perfect gathering place for a family reunion, couples getaway, or simply reconnecting with family and friends. Western furnishings and décor throughout the lodge and Bunkhouse enhance the Hill Country setting.
Inside the Ponderosa, there is a large river-view Family Room with a limestone fireplace, large-screen HDTV (with satellite TV/DVR service), comfortable sitting area, and a large table perfect for card games or jigsaw puzzles.
The Living Room has another large limestone fireplace, TV with DVD, and comfortable couches for relaxing in front of the fire or a good movie.
The large window-wrapped, eat-In Kitchen is fully equipped, has a large island for food prep and serving, and a large dining table that easily accommodates 8-10 diners. Views of the cypress-lined riverfront and nearby hills make it a wonderful place to dine.
Multiple Outdoor Patios complete with cushioned wrought-iron outdoor furniture provide additional space for grilling & al fresco dining, reading and relaxing – all with direct views of the beautiful riverfront below.
