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.
