Ree Drummond has a lodge on her family ranch that she's opened up to visitors. The lodge also happens to be where she films her shows, and in this article, we get a sneak peek inside.


On January 19, 2009, Ree Drummond took to her The Pioneer Woman website to open up about a lodge that she and her husband, Ladd Drummond, had acquired. She revealed that they'd decided to renovate the place.

In February 2008, they got a local contractor to demolish the lodge and rebuild it again to their specifications. On her website, Ree explained why they renovated the lodge.

The Drummond couple felt the lodge was in disrepair with the plumbing and electricity hanging on a thread. The place had mold, severe leaks in the roof, termites, wires chewed by mice, and skunks and raccoons living there.

The chef also felt they didn't have enough room in their own house for guests since their four children were also staying with them. The only guest house they had was used for exercise equipment, and they wanted to have space for their visitors.

Ree also wanted to use the space to host visiting chefs and food bloggers for filming, to record tutorials, and host live cooking classes. She also wished to do cooking, photography, and get-togethers with bloggers and readers.

The television personality also hoped to use the lodge for her and Ladd to have a place where they could go on dates without driving for three hours. However, since then, the lodge has become a test kitchen, preparation space, prop room, and office.



Ladd was the one who had the idea of opening the lodge up to visitors. Ree wasn't sure about the idea since the space was 18 miles out of Pawhuska and on an unpaved road, where she worried people would get flat tires, but this was Ladd's logic:

“People are coming all the way to Pawhuska to visit our store and restaurant. He wanted to expand their experience.”



In May 2020, Ree shared some information on her website on how fans could visit the lodge. She revealed that they had day tours from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., and tickets could be collected from The Mercantile in town.

The star said employees at the establishment would give directions and instructions. Tickets were unlimited for tour dates and free, and the lodge was also used as a guest house throughout the year!



Guests would get to stay in any of the four full-bedroom suites. The other amazing thing about visiting Drummond's lodge was that guests could explore "The Pioneer Woman's" set!

Ree said fans could open drawers and poke around as they wished. Guests could also spend time relaxing in the living room, looking at the views from the patio, paw through the pantry, and hide messages for the television personality!



While some people assume Ree films her show in her home on the Oklahoma ranch, the truth is that she uses the lodge. The lodge is a guest house on their ranch.

The backyard has gardens and benches that the family [the Drummonds] uses to relax on.

In March 2021, the star revealed in another article that in 2011 she filmed the pilot for her Food Network show in the lodge. She chose the space because she'd often used its kitchen for gatherings and events, and her home was full of her children.


Working from the lodge worked so well that Ree's production team decided she should continue filming there. Recording in that space allowed her to go home at the end of the day and have a separate work-life balance.


Ree and Ladd live on their ranch with their children Alex, Paige, Bryce, Todd, and their foster son Jamar. The estate boasts stables, a barn, a large backyard space from the deck, open fields, a pond, a creek, and landscaping.


It also has a stone fireplace, high vaulted ceilings, and a wooden ladder to reach the top shelves in Ree's kitchen. The backyard has gardens and benches that the family uses to relax on.

The cozy and beautiful lodge has a private kitchen and other living areas. It was decorated with toned vases, multiple couches, a wrap-around gray countertop, and places to sit in front of the windows to look at the views.
