Hico lodge description

Located in the scenic New River Gorge area of southern West Virginia, The Ponderosa Lodge is the premiere organic farm stay for large groups in the Eastern United States. With 10,000 spacious square feet of comfortable country style lodging and 10 bedrooms and bathrooms accommodating up to 32 people, The Ponderosa Lodge is ideal for large group events such as church retreats, business retreats, family reunions, weddings and anniversaries, and hunting or fishing expeditions.

We are conveniently located directly off Route 60, the Midland Trail, on 16 very private acres in the New River Gorge area of Fayette County, WV. The scenic New River Gorge area offers countless exciting outdoor activities, including whitewater rafting, rock climbing, fishing, horseback riding, tree canopy tours, boating, hiking, coal mine tours, helicopter tours, jet boat rides, and train rides, which are all within easy driving distance. At the lodge, we offer farm tours during which you can learn about small farm life by joining us as we gather eggs, feed and water farm animals, and pick fresh, organic fruits and vegetables from the gardens. We also offer indoor classes in sustainable living, such as baking artisan breads and pastries and canning and preserving the harvest. We also have a mile long hiking trail through the woods to a fishing pond, playground and straw bale maze for the young ones and yard games for you to use. Otherwise, grab a good book in our library and relax in the rocking chairs located on our spacious 1,300 square foot front porch or on our third floor porch overlooking the farm. If you can dream it, you can do it here in the New River Gorge area.

The first floor of the Lodge has a large porch that seats 32 people for meals when the weather permits, a dining room that also comfortably seats 32 people, a 1,300 square foot great room that comfortably seats 32 people, a large dream kitchen that opens to the dining room, and 4 spacious bedrooms, each with their own private bath. The great rooms contains a television, numerous movies to choose from, a baby grand piano, large comfortable leather furniture, and a large coffee table and side tables that were hand carved by a West Virginia native. Our dining room tables and chairs were also hand crafted by local artisans. Two bedrooms have one queen bed each and 2 bedrooms have 2 full beds each. The second floor has 4 bedrooms. One bedroom has a king bed. One bedroom has a queen bed, and two bedrooms have two full beds. The third floor has two bedrooms a large 1,000 square foot game room, and a large porch that has expansive views overlooking the farm and the mountains beyond. One of the third floor bedrooms has two queen beds; the other has two full beds. The game room has ping pong, darts, air hockey, numerous board games and puzzles, and a television. All 10 bedrooms in the lodge contain log style beds and dressers, and each have their own private bath.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: We are locally owned and operated. Our family lives in West Virginia and are familiar with the many activities and attractions in the Southern West Virginia region.

                  Why the Owner Chose Hico:
                  We wanted a quiet place in the mountains to raise our family.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
                  We are the only property in southern West Virginia that can comfortably accommodate up to 32 people in a private setting. Our guests like that they are able to stay under 1 roof, and not be spread out in multiple cabins or in a noisy hotel.
