We had our 2 Golden Retrievers with us and stayed in room 134 Blue Ridge, where they took dogs. The room was exceptionally clean, with a king bed and sliding glass door out to a patio overlooking a beautiful grassy area, then a horse pasture. The patio had rocking chairs and we could feel our blood pressure lower immediately! The following day, we took a horseback ride through the beautiful changing leaves and into the river. Not across the river, IN the river! How cool! We were having so much fun, we asked to stay a couple more days. Since it was October, leaf-looking time, they were booked and we had to move to their last remaining room, 171 in the Valley-View section. WOW! This room was wonderful! It was 35'X18', with a huge 2 person Traver-tine shower, a wet bar in the main room, 2 queen beds, flat screen, table and chairs, AND sliding glass doors out to a large deck overlooking a treed valley, used in the trail rides. You could sit in the rockers and watch the horse-back riders go by, down below!
Then there's the Restaurant!!! You sit down, and out comes platter after platter of some of the best country meat and vegetables around! And they'll keep bringing it until you're full!
After over-eating, you'll have to work it off by walking down to the petting zoo and barn. They have everything from a long-horn steer, to Pigmy goats, chickens, mules, you name it!
The town of Dillard is famous for it's antique shops. Besides being a home base for day trips to Highlands,NC, Helen,GA, The Smoky Mountains, and white water rafting, Dillard House is a great place to just relax in the pool or Jacuzzi and gaze at the scenery!
