About Brenda Farmer


Pete and I have a deep dedication to marriage and family. We would like to share a marriage enrichment program that helped us to refocus our priorities, to learn to value each other as husband and wife, and to understand our continued responsibilities as leaders in our family, as well as, many other points.

We now offer our guests the opportunity to participate in the Christian-based program. The program consists of a 10 topic DVD series by Jimmy Evans, with each topic presentation lasting approximately 40–55 minutes. Your schedule for viewing and discussing the topics is self-paced. One evening during your stay you will have the option of having dinner and discussion with Pete and I, if you desire. A gift book will be provided.

If you are interested in the Marriage Enrichment Series, please inform us at the time you make your reservation.

Why Brenda Farmer chose Powderly

Cabin Ponderosa is owned and operated by Pete and Brenda Farmer. We didn’t choose Texas, Texas chose us! We both were born and grew up within 20 miles of Cabin Ponderosa. We have primarily stayed near our home towns because of family connections. Besides, what is not to love about Texas weather?

This past summer and fall have been absolutely lovely. We even had our first snow in January! Most weekends have been great for outdoor activities, family get-togethers, Church outings and just hanging out with people we love. Most memorable, have been the evenings when we all sit out around the fire pit with our beautiful family and special friends! There’s just nothing quite like it!

We have enjoyed our new project of renting our cabin. It is just right for a weekend getaway or longer. The lay of the land where the cabin is located is cozy and comfortable with an amazing view of the fishing pond, trees and gently sloping landscape. One of the most outstanding views we enjoy are evening sunsets. When the evening sun strikes the skyline and clouds above the treetops, the view is spectacular. If you love country and outdoors, you will love Cabin Ponderosa, just like we do.

Wonderful and relaxing place to spend a family reunion.

  • 5 of 5

After some of our family members flew in from CA we drove up from Austin to have a mini reunion at Ponderosa Cabin. We didn’t know what to expect and was excited to see our surrounding when we arrived. The small lake, trees, canoe, cows, and large lawn area was perfect and it’s seemingly secluded location would give us privacy. The cabin itself was immaculate - which meant a lot to me especially since I’ve had some bad experiences staying in some home rentals. The kitchen was well equipped and if I’d known in advanced I would not have brought so much. Again everything (dishes, utensils, appliances, cabinets, etc) were all very clean and did not have any malodor as you often get in some rentals. The beds were very comfortable and the linens of high quality. They have extra blankets if needed and the towels were luxurious. We fished and caught many but we decided to catch and release only since we had brought so much food already. Gliding on the lake in the early morning and early evenings in the canoe was so relaxing that I almost fell asleep while my daughter fished in the front. We played horseshoes, ladders, frisbee as well as relaxed on the hammock and multiple swinging benches there. There is no swimming in the lake but Pat Maude Lake is only about a mile away and there is a nice swimming beach there where we spent one afternoon. Choctaw Casino is a short 10 minute drive and offers a buffet that’s fairly inexpensive. The grocery store was not too far, about 15 minutes south to Paris or 10 minutes north to Hugo, OK. All in all we had a great time and all of our kids ranging from 16-40, had an awesome time. The only negative was that the wi-fi couldn’t support multiple iPhones, iPads, and Kindles and there is hardly to no service at the cabin. So we were “forced” to talk to each other (OH MY) and play games which was great. I very much recommend Ponderosa Cabin for anyone looking to get away. The owners, Brenda and Pete, are wonderful and they make every effort to ensure that your stay is comfortable and fun. Thank you Brenda and Pete we appreciate all the work you’ve put into Ponderosa Cabin and it’s amenities. God bless you both.

Beautiful, Charming Oasis!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family LOVED the cabin! Such a tranquil setting and beautiful sunset! The cabin was so clean and cozy and inviting. There were fun activities for the family to do outside like ladder ball, swings, horseshoes, and fishing, etc. The owners were very helpful! We also enjoyed some time at the beautiful nearby lake.

We couldn't ask for a better place to stay! Thanks for a great getaway!
