- THE PONDEROSA RANCH
You mean, the Cartwrights? Yes, one in the same. This is where they did the filming for the television show, at least the location stuff. Even the Cartwrights house, complete with Hop Sings' kitchen, just as it was on TV. A big place, and a long but beautiful drive from downtown Tahoe, but well worth the trip down memory lane. And don't forget to have a "Hoss" burger!!
