If you enjoy discovering new places, there is lots to see and discover in beautiful South Glengarry County. Ponderosa Ranch is situated in the charming village of Lancaster. The Waterfront Trail passes our main entrance and runs 20 km on scenic County Road 2. Bicycle enthusiast, hikers and walkers will enjoy touring the countryside on this paved trail. Less than a mile away is Cooper Marsh, a large bird sanctuary and wildlife habitat, to explore and enjoy with the whole family. The 27-hole Heritage Golf and Country Club is adjacent to the bird sanctuary. Plan to explore historic Lancaster village with its many unique boutiques. Ponderosa Ranch is part of South Lancaster, located on Lake St. Francis where some great fishing tournaments are held each year. If you are coming for the fishing, the ranch has a private boat launch.
Situated on 35 acres, Ponderosa Ranch has ample open space and beautiful wooded areas with trails to enjoy. There is a great variety of tree species to identify, from large eastern hemlock to century old white pine, black cherry, beech, white oak and on and on. There is a chipping green, for practice, if you plan to hit the many golf links located in our area. If you visit during the month of August, Canada’s oldest country fair is at our doorstep in the village of Williamstown. The Maxville Highland Games are just 40 minutes away. The entire area is filled with small and interesting villages, many with museums telling their history. Just 15 minutes away, the city of Cornwall offers more variety, if shopping is on the agenda.
