Our first time being at a dude ranch was great fun! We came a little late, but were met by Rusty, who led us to our room and helped with the luggage. Food was great, all the staff were friendly, eating with us at the family style meals. There were 2 family reunions going on and we felt like we... More

We got married at the Ranch on August 1st with 25 of our closest friends and family. From the months leading up to the event and all weekend long, the Ranch went above and beyond to make our special day perfect. The staff was more than accommodating to us and our guests. They made any special request a reality, and... More

Charming guest ranch in the mountains of North Carolina, close to Mount Mitchell, tallest peak east of the Mississippi. Gracious hosts, delicious "home cooked" family meals with all the guests and staff, excellent activities. Aside from guided horseback riding which is the main attraction, there are plenty of guided activities from tubing to full on rafting, craft tours, cookouts, fishing,... More

My wife and 2 young girls did the Sunday through Wednesday stay on June 8th. First the good parts. The property is very pretty with the setting on a mountain side. No other roof top could be seen from this property so you do get the feeling of being away from it all. The trials are nice, long and meander... More

From making the reservation to checking out, the Clear Creek Ranch team made my vacation with two of my nieces (15 and 11 years old) easy, convenient and memorable. We loved that the ranch is not a big facility but more of a home away from home. The wranglers were knowledgeable, kind and welcoming. Horses were safe, treated well and... More

Magnificent views, exceptional service, beautiful trails with great horses, and delicious food, are just a few of the outstanding amenities of the ranch. We just spent a delightful week with our granddaughter, and it was the perfect vacation for our family. It was a week full of great surprises like the exceptional 5 course meal for the adults, fun activities... More

My husband and I (mid 70s) and our soon to be 11 year old grandson spent the week of June 22 at Clear Creek Ranch. We wanted to spend some quality time with our grandson, away from the screens that dominate our lives. Of course, the horses were central to our time there. My grandson had ridden a little, and...

My family and I recently visited CCR. My son (9) stated this was "the best vacation ever." My daughter (11), simply stated she "never wanted to leave." The staff were incredible. They made you feel like one of the family. The wranglers were great with the kids and patient with adults. I would recommend this resort without hesitation. We can't... More

The remaining days we rode twice daily (intro up to adv trails), tubed (dont let water temp deter you- my skinny daughter had a blast jumping in watering hole), fished more, horse manship training...

My husband, 16 year old daughter and I just returned from a Wed to Sun stay. The staff were all wonderful. I met Mike, the head chef, within a few minutes of arrival. I had sent a diet request ahead for gluten free. Mike knew who I was, and told me he had me covered for food limitations. He had... More
