This was the first time we have visited the ranch and had the most amazing time if only for one night. The staff were really friendly and gave us a really warm welcome. The food was good and to have the drink station open 24 seven was really great for the kids. It was really great to be able to... More

This was a pretty good place to hole up for a while. An escape from the winter up north. The staff was very friendly and tried hard to make the stay go well. This included attention to horseback riding interests. It was not one size fits all, which was very refreshing. The room I stayed in was very spacious and... More

My family and I spent five days here over New Years and we loved the food. All the guides were amazing. We especially enjoyed riding T-bone, Cowboy, Twist, and Legend over our stay. We thought the hot tub and the pool were a bonus. I enjoyed working with and getting to know both the guides and the horses. We will... More

Family and I went for the first time and enjoyed every minute of it. There was plenty to do even for those in the group not riding horses....hike, bike, games, etc. Delicious hearty meals and snacks. Staff were excellent and very friendly. Beautiful grounds even in winter.

My husband and I ranch annually in the US and this was our first time at Southern Cross. The staff were very nice and the horses were beautifully cared for. Food was very good and the whole place was really clean and comfortable. If I had one negative point it would be that choice of horse was done on a... More

I took my daughter who is 12. She loved the riding. It was a bit quiet the week we went but she still had fun (she was the only child there). I would recommend this to couples and families. I will mention that there were quite a few people there solo. The advantage to the quiet week was we ate... More

Spent three fantastic nights at this unique horse resort. Our bed-and-breakfast type accommodations were charmingly furnished, clean, and quiet. Resort staff, especially Jim, and even the other visitors were friendly, down to earth, and genuinely kind. Horses are certainly well cared for, gentle yet responsive, and guests have the option to ride by themselves without a guide. Food is phenomenal... More

What more could one ask for...horses that are very well cared for, cats lying about that want to be petted and a bunch of well behaved dogs..The ranch allows all us adults the ability to be cowgirls and cowboys for the stay..Divine food set out by the owner Inge and her staff and very very nice accomodations.
