Well we just got home our fourth stay at Southern Cross. Just like our first time our fourth time was still magic. We go to ride as we are avid horse people riding every week at home. All the horses at the ranch are great, and that probably would be enough for us alone. But it sure don't stop there,... More

I visited Southern Cross thinking it was a typical Bed and Breakfast!! I was wrong. This is a destination in itself. A very friendly staff greets you upon arrival. They give you a complete tour of the grounds. There are 250 horses that are kept at the ranch. There is great horseback riding. They have mountain bikes to use to... More

I loved this place. I wanted a solitary retreat for a few days and as a horse-lover, was delighted to find Southern Cross online and well-reviewed here on Trip Advisor. It was worth the 12-hour drive from Illinois! Wonderful people, sweet (well-cared-for) horses, and lots of fun and quiet time. Several new foals born recently and they were so wonderful... More

INTRO: Wanting to enjoy Spring Break by going to a dude ranch, I found Southern Cross Ranch in Madison, Georgia was the best option near the Florida area (since there are not many good dude ranches in Florida). I booked the Riding All Inclusive package for 5 nights during the high season (about $920 total including tax for Category 1... More

At last - a holiday that lived up to our expectations!! We spent a week at the ranch, staying in the Cattle Baron room ( amazing luxury, beautiful decoration and fabulous jakuzi bath). Despite some rain, we enjoyed some lovely trail rides, up canter hill, and through the creek. Southern hospitality truly is great. We will definitely return. Nothing better... More

I spent 4 days in a complete state of relaxation. The staff could not have been more welcoming, thoughtful and charming. My lovely room overlooked the pasture so I woke daily to the beauty of a Georgia morning and horses. I took the all-inclusive option so I rode twice daily, ate delicious homey meals, and completely relaxed. I cannot recommend... More

My trip was purposed as a sabbatical. The Southern Cross Guest Ranch was perfect! It was not too far of a drive from Atlanta, and not far from the highway exit. I truly enjoyed my stay. The staff was wonderful and accommodating in every way. This ranch has over 200 horses, and the ranch is truly peaceful and serene. If... More

This happened to be our 5th time at the ranch. My words really can't explain how wonderful this Ranch is. The Bed and Breakfast is very clean and the rooms are spacious. We have stayed in quite a few different rooms and all have been great. The food is wonderful and there is always plenty. The staff is incredible. They... More

My husband and I went back to the Southern Cross in December of 2010 for a pre-Christmas present to each other. (Our second time there) This time we stayed in "The Plantation." This room was much nicer than the room we stayed in previously. (The Seminole I believe) The room had a 4 poster king size bed. The mattress was... More

Met my best friend here for a short weekend get away and we really had a great time. The horses were healthy, friendly, beautiful. The staff went our of their way in every area to show their excellent customer service. The food was very good and lots of it. They leave the kitchen area open so you can get drinks,... More
