Located in Punderson State Park and only 50 minutes southeast of Cleveland, Punderson Manor Lodge and Conference Center is a historic English Tudor-style mansion featuring 31 spacious guestrooms, 26 fully furnished two bedroom cottages, a conference center that accommodates up to 100 and an elegant full-service dining room with views of Punderson Lake. Enjoy a challenging round of golf on our picturesque 18-hole championship golf course. Other activities and recreational opportunities include hiking, swimming (indoor/outdoor pools and sandy beach), boating, fishing, tennis and more.
We opted to dine out for Thanksgiving this year and came across the Punderson Manor Thanksgiving buffet. The restaurant is open on all other days, excluding major holidays when they offer buffets, etc. The location is the same, but the buffet is set up in the main area. We did have reservations for this event and definitely needed them. The buffet items included a salad section (potato salad, shrimp, mixed greens, dinner rolls/butter, cranberry sauce, cheese/cracker trays, marinated asparagus, etc.), main entree section (greens beans, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes/giblet gravy, gnocchi, honey glazed ham, turkey, stuffing, cod and carved prime rib/au jus and horseradish sauce) and a dessert section that contained multiple cookies, cakes, pies, puddings (warm and cold) and cobbler. The staff was extremely attentive and the buffet items were replenished well in advance of need, so no waiting for anything. The setting of the Manor is gorgeous overlooking Lake Punderson. Being a state there is plenty more offered and another review will cover that. The food was outstanding and we are awaiting our next trip back.
Property is very relaxing and peaceful. Employees are very friendly and knowledgeable. Make sure to take a nice walk around the property across the docks of the water and if possible enjoy a evening camp fire.
My husband and I stayed a Sunday night in the Windsor Suite. Beautiful room in the original part of the Manor House. So much character. Everybody was very nice. Had a wonderful dinner and breakfast in the Manor House Cherry Dining Room. Beautiful grounds to walk around on. The lake has a floating boardwalk to walk around on. After are walk it was a nice enough fall day to sit outside on the Adirondack chairs and take in the beautiful view. Dinner and breakfast also had views of the lake. It’s a nice relaxing getaway. Michael that works in the bar/kitchen area is truly a gem! Hope they keep him around awhile
My wife and I stayed at this Lodge in September of this year and absolutely loved it. We had a lake side room and the view was awesome. The Staff was outstanding and so nice!!! I took pictures outside of the Lodge since it was really beautiful as the picture indicates. So much to do near the Lodge-Chocolate shops, Golf, Great Restaurants with very reasonable prices, Boating on the Lake, & many other numerous things to do. I very highly recommend staying here to everyone.
A friend and I stayed to relax and walk and bike ride. Once there, we discovered only 4 chairs in the “lodge” area. The room was okay, and had a mini fridge and comfortable beds, clean enough. We inquired right away about bike rentals and were told they didn’t have any. We asked how to get to the nature center and 3 people working at the manor couldn’t tell us how to get there but offered a map. We walked the path around the lake, very nice with planked walkways and fishing piers. No dining there with the exception of a buffet breakfast for $11.99 (it looked good, but I don’t like buffets). There’s nice seating outside and an inside pool (outside pool was closed).The pool towels were very small and sand-paper rough. The shower/restroom was outside of the pool room down the hallway. The view outside was awesome so we got a couple pricey drinks (the bartender was actually a housekeeper, but they used her as a backup) and headed out to the fire pit area. The next day we headed out to explore the marina and maybe rent a kayak. The marina is just a small cabin with bait. The lake was quite green in that area so we skipped the rental. The man at the marina pointed us to the nature center, which had hours of noon to 5 but no one was ther at 1, so we skipped that. Then, lo and behold, was a rack of bikes for rent and pricing!!! Too late for that by then. Quite disappointing. I recommend driving to Burton for lunch/dinner at Warren’s, about 4 miles away. I think it would be a great place for outside walking but that’s about it. I won’t go back.

Yes, the park does have a sledding hill. It is lighted for evening sledding and there is a tow rope that runs from 12-5pm. The hours of the tow rope do vary depending on the amount of snow on the ground and is at the discretion of the State Park. But the hill is always technically open during daylight hours.
We also have many trails to explore around the park and there is of course the indoor pool at the lodge for people staying in the Manor or cabins.
I hope this helps!
