We took our 12, 14 & 16 year old daughters here for our family vacation over the 4th of July. We all had a great time! We all were able to unplug from our smartphones and hang out together and with the other guests playing cards and listening to music. We enjoyed learning to ride "balanced in the saddle" on... More

We just finished our week-long adventure at the French Broad Outpost Ranch, and I can't express how much fun we had!! My husband and I have two girls, ages 13 and 10, and they said that this was their most favorite vacation they have ever taken! There were several other families there also, with children from ages 10 to 19,... More

We spent a week (June 8-15, 2014) at the FBOR for a family vacation with our 11-year-old son. I cannot say enough good things about this place - plenty to do, beautiful horses, riding, rafting, tubing, rodeo games, cattle drives, bluegrass music and square dancing. And the food is phenomenal - we all gained a few pounds. Meals are family... More

First of all...I may not be the fussiest eater, but I thought the food was just great (great cookin' Z!). I'm fairly confident that the 20 guests there would agree. Sure, some of the meals might be considered simple (tacos etc.), but everything seemed fresh and the tastes were great. Desserts were equally good. In fact, the food was a... More

We just returned from our fourth trip to the FBOR. We first discovered this gem of an experience in 2005, when our children were 8 and 12 years of age. The food, atmosphere, activities and hosts are all top notch. The fact that our kids, now 17 and 21 years of age, are still enamored with this place speaks volumes... More

We spent part of our Spring Break @ FBO. Shawn and staff made us feel welcome and showed us a good time. We went in the off season - it was kind of quiet in the evenings - but good to get away from electronics - no cell/internet service. Food was good! - family style. Maybe some type of vending... More

A four night stay in the peace of the mountains, rustic comfortable rooms, excellent plentiful food, sweet well trained horses. I am the complete greenhorn, been on a horse a dozen times, but before we left felt quite comfortable on the sometimes steep trails. We had read the fine print and were not expecting a band or dancing. What we... More

My son (11) and I spent our 2013 summer vacation at the FBO ranch. It was a wonderful experience. Who knew we could have a great western experience in the east! I liked that we were given the same horse to ride throughout the week; my son really bonded with his horse, Ginger. We normally rode twice a day. The... More

Wishing our sons had settled closer to home in Louisiana, we try to get our two sons and their families together for a summer trip every year. Last year (2012) we heard about and decided to try French Broad Outpost Ranch. This year (2013) we suggested a beach trip. All four granddaughters (ages 7 to 9) said no! Can we... More
