In October 2013, I stayed for three days at the ranch in one of the small historic cabins. My cabin had a cozy fireplace and historic decor, but with modern conveniences of a private bath, tv, and wifi (however, some cell phones don't get good reception there, but I had no problem). The property is beautiful and serene. Although I... More

This place is a small slice of heaven. Our family enjoyed hiking, horse back riding, fishing, as well as very good food and entertainment. The cabins are all clean and well appointed especially considering its supposed to be a ranch. This is more than a place to stay, its an experience and one that you will not soon forget. The... More

Our family has been to the ranch many times over the past decade. Our recent visit is consistent with past visits. Love the dude ranches out west but with this so close to home and able to drive instead is just wonderful... It is one of the best family vacations you could ever ask for. .Your own cabin out in...

My family stayed at Cataloochie for several days in two cabins. It was an amazing stay with my older parents, wife and two young teenage sons. The entire property is such a peaceful escape. We enjoyed the horseback riding, trout fishing, hiking and of course the food. The service was exceptional. This place has been run by the same family... More

Only come here if you love beauty and peace. Best place to go horseback riding in the southeast. Came here on our 26th wedding anniversary and we can't wait to go back. I wish we had found this place a long time ago.

My husband and I stayed in Dogwood cabin, which was very private and romantic. There is so much to do at the ranch and also within the surrounding area. The Horse back riding is wonderful. We went in the fall for change of season, which was amazing. The meals were good, but didn't enjoy sitting at a communal table, would... More

First off, I stayed in the Main Ranch House, so the experience in the cabins or Silverbell Lodge may be different. The house is an old structure, but is in very good condition. They had a big fireplace which was nice to gather around. The biggest surprise was... NO TV in the rooms! (I understand that other areas of the... More

Thank you so much for you review of Cataloochee Ranch. I know many people want all the technology but we find that the lack of it helps people to reconnect to themselves and their families. Remember the gathering around the big fireplace? I hope to see you soon for a regular vacation or another business meeting. More

We just got back from a quick weekend trip and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms are perhaps a bit dated, but met my expectations from reading other reviews and viewing pictures. My wife probably would have liked the rooms to be a bit more upscale, but they were fine by my standard...clean, warm, and cozy (Silverbell). The horseback... More

The family and I have been to the ranch many times over the past decade. Our recent visit is consistent with past visits. Just a bit more attention to detail, and thoughtful but inexpensive touches would pull them over the peak toward great. Instead, they are kind of stuck at very good.

Recently went with family to the ranch. The ranch cabin was clean but old with old furniture. Bathroom could use some updating. I was surprised that the staff wasn't friendly and the owner never did come around during dinners to meet or talk with anyone. The food was ok but during their "family nights" it was a little skimpy --... More
