Had a great time relaxing on the deck and cooling off in the water. Was a great place for myself and 4 others to spend the week along with our dog. The owners were very responsive and came over if we needed anything. The property is gorgeous and there are trails you can walk and a conservation area nearby. Would recommend for anyone wanting a quiet summer getaway.

This hidden gem is an incredible private get away. The cottage is very clean and well maintained and the architecture is stunning. We had a tranquil experience. From swimming to fishing to boating there are tons of things to do. There is also a beautiful beach just a short five minute drive away if you prefer not to swim off the dock. The owners are very pleasant people and made sure we were very happy. Thank You for the amazing time!!

We were very fortunate to find this hidden treasure called the Ponderosa Ranch - a beautifully maintained and furnished log home situated on the Raisin river just a minute from Lake St. Francis. The Ranch was perfect for our group of 10 guys with plenty of space to move around and never feeling we were on top of each other. Our late September booking brought cool weather at night but the wood burning stove was perfect to take the chill out of the air.  The large dining table was able to accommodate all 10 of us very comfortably with room for many wine bottles. The huge porch provides a great gathering spot for many activities: story telling; watching the activities on the river; and even sleeping.  Pierre and Renée have invested plenty of their labour and energy in making the ranch and the 35 acres of surrounding land such a beautiful property. However, it's their personal touch that makes the place so welcoming - the owners went out of their way to ensuring that we had a great experience. As a big group who likes to play music, sing and at times be somewhat loud, the Ponderosa was perfect for us as we did not disturb anyone

We are definitely coming back next year

This was really more than we expected.  The house is a beautiful, clean, chalet that has everything imaginable.   From everything you would need in the house as well as games for the children.  The grounds was amazingly beautiful... Playground, canoe, the trails... We enjoyed everything there was offered and can't wait to tell everybody abut this hidden gem.  Looking forward to our next visit.

Thank you

I'd rate my overall experience at the property as  Excellent.
The experiance that was had at the Ponderosa Ranch will be memories that will last a life time.
As a group to get together and spend bring in the New Years in picture perfect setting at this Cottage is unforgetable. Only chance we all get to spend our few days together once a year and I can assure I wouldn't spend it anywhere else.
The setting and property is remarkable. The wood stove, the decore of the building is something we look forward to going back.
There is no way you can go wrong with this establisment. Just simply perfect.
 I'd Recommend This Proprety For
Adventure seekers, Families with young children, Girls get away, Age 55+, Romantic get away
