If I owned this nice place my staff and food would be above top notch . This is not the case the grounds were well kept , but not the staff - most of them were not friendly and were just going through the motions . The female , I guess "owner" had breakfast with us, a little full of her self , not nice , I would say she didn't like having to run this place to pay the morgage . My family owns two resturants and the food during the week "out of cans" . This place needs a head chef , too many people in the kitchen. The ribs and chicken on friday night were better , but not top notch like the price of this place should have ...

Our family enjoyed our 3rd annual fall break visit to the Cataloochee Guest Ranch, staying in the Wintergreen Cabin. As always, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The courteous and friendly staff provided great service, great food, and great hospitality. The horseback riding experience is the best! Our children look forward to visiting next year!

I never thought a wedding could be a much fun! The setting of the ranch is outstanding! We took over all cabins and rooms and can't recommend it more for any kind of family function, business retreat, romantic weekend or even by yourself. The service people were incredibly nice, friendly and accommodating. All in all we all loved it!

This was our first time to visit the ranch, and we were very pleased. The employees are very helpful and attentive, the food service was above and beyond our expectations. Many settings were beyond what we had assumed might be offered. Great place for children, many horses and cows around. Nice peaceful getaway, would definitely come back! Give it a try.

Room Tip: Many different sized rooms to fit any need or family. Nice and cool year round, so no need for air conditioning.

My 9 year old daughter wanted to ride horses for her birthday and one of my dear friends suggested Cataloochee Ranch. And thank goodness for the suggestion. We had an outstanding couple of days. Relaxed and unplugged. The accomodations in the Pond House were wonderful. The food was excellent. The scenery was beautiful. The atmosphere was so very family friendly. One of our best vacations ever. And the horseback riding was much more than even expected. I am 54 years old and hadn't been on a horse since high school...but it was a fun and memorable experience. And of course our 9 year old had the time of her life. We've already booked for a return visit next year. Very highly recommend!!!

Room Tip: You can't go wrong with any of their accomodations.
