The Pondering Pony is a cheeky reference to Tolkien's 'The Inn of the Prancing Pony' and it's a story teller lot designed to resemble a medieval inn that has seen better days. I have used this lot for a while in my Medieval world and I find it useful as an area for my sims to meet up.

Although it's an inn I have not placed a bar in the tavern area as I can't see cocktails matching the theme!

The Pondering Pony has a tavern area, a kitchen, dubious outdoor toilet facilities, five bedrooms (sleeping 9 sims). The kitchen does not have a stove, but your sims can fix themselves a quick meal via the disguised fridge.
The staircase was created with CFE so it is a good idea not to alter it unless you are familiar with CFE.
It's current designation is Visitors Allowed but you could, if you wish, convert it to a Residential lot (you'd need to install a stove).

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

You make amazing medieval lots! This will go great in a medieval world that I play. And it's small enough to fit! Thank you!

This is perfect, fairycake!! I most definitely have to download this once my world is finished, so all the middle earth citizens can have a chance to have a ginger ale at the Pondering Pony ;-)

Just a 'head's up ' , if you go to Helen's site to DL the ' Left Suburb' package, one of the 'download selections ' could compromise your browser ( mine got 'attacked' by programs trying to FORCE me to DL stuff in order to proceed to DL her mod , had to force close the browser to stop the attack ! ) . It'd be better if Helen up-loaded the mod here , it'd be safer. It's a shame too, cause her stuff is very nice and would fit good in medieval & fantasy settings .

Eeeek that's scary :/ I suppose I could contact her and ask if I can offer the CC with my build - I'd hate for people to get unwanted stuff on their machines because of this. I didn't encounter a problem when I downloaded it, but things might have changed since then.

Hi Fairycake! I want this in my game so bad, but for some reason, it's not showing up in Edit Town-Lots...
I"ve tried the sims3pack, I"ve extracted to a .package file and placed in the mods folder, it still won't show up.. I"ve got "most" of the worlds, including Dragon Valley. do you think there's something i'm missing for not seeing it? or maybe a different name? I can't see anything that seems to resemble the thumbnail. I want my brawny werewolf in there...

@sljensen63 Have you tried putting the sims 3 pack onto your desktop and right clicking it? It should open the launcher and install it from there. Sometimes changing things to package files can be a nightmare and certain things in the original file can be lost :/ Also I'm sorry I didn't get back to you sooner, I've only just seen this. If you continue to have problems drop me a pm

Everything down to the name is incredible here. Haven't seen a better medieval building that's so flexible or fitting.

Your builds are amazing! This is a personal fave, but I'm collecting several. Why didn't an EA corporate buffoons notice the masterpieces being built with Sims 3 and realize it's FAR from over? Is a buffoon a genre of babboon? Big monkeys of all genres have a brain trust that exceeds the Dodos who said sims 3 is dead. EA suits are Dodos but I don't want to insult a poor extinct bird or a monkey, so doofus works!

I LOVE this build, so authentically medieval. Kind of reminds me of Kings Crossing from Game of thrones... I placed this in Ulokea (a awesome medieval world) and it's functioning wonderfully...
