Where do I start . . This place was all I could have asked for and more. I was a little leery, going by myself, but I never was uncomfortable or lonely. The staff was amazing, from the office staff, to the kitchen staff to the barn staff. To a person they were warm and friendly. They all treated you... More

We recently came back from spending Spring Break at SCR and really loved it. We've stayed at other horse ranches and this was by far my favorite. Our first impression as we drove up was that the place was really beautiul as we drove along the pastures and saw all the horses that were around the property. My daughters, who... More

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time at Southern Cross. I would highly recommend it. It was beautiful and very relaxing. It rained a lot during our stay, but we still enjoyed it. As per their policy of missing 2 rides, they prorated our stay to include non-riding days. The room was very clean and spacious. The bed was... More

We had a great time at Southern Cross! We saw happy ducks, geese, puppies, dogs, cats, and horses. Our 8 year old granddaughter took riding lessons and said the class was fun and didn't even feel like an hour. The bed was heavenly (great sheets, pillows, mattress) and the T.V. in our room was crystal clear. The room was clean... More

I spend a 10 nights vacation at this top location in January 2010. I recommend this ranch for international visitors. Coming from the Netherlands I had a direct fly to Atlanta and took a shuttle from the airport for $ 50,- which took me straight to Madison. The ranch picked me up in Madison for no extra charge. January is... More

You can't beat the price with the horse riding, lodging and food! We stayed there in March which was cold and barren but still beautiful. Horses are everywhere and they add to the ambiance. Neither my husband nor I are experienced riders or are necessarily into horses but we did all the horse rides and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was... More

First of all, Im feeling a little guilty not giving the Southern Cross Guest Ranch 5 stars, since everyone else did. However....I do tell it like I see it! (THIS IS MY EXPERIENCE) The riding was great. Lots of hands on with the horses, which I really appreciated. Bottom line, the "guest horses" are trail horses and THEY (the horse)... More
