My husband was in a very serious car accident and we had booked our august vacation 8 months in advance. He has two broken heels and one broken leg as well as a cracked sternum, a punctured long and three broken ribs! We are being told that he won't be able to walk, let alone ride a horse for about...

While we are sympathetic to any ones unexpected accidents, we do have policies well published and are not changeable. If anyone makes a reservation, they are required to put down a deposit which varies with each deal. On our website under FAQS, there is a question about cancellations and we suggest Travelers Insurance. This policy is also on the confirmation... More

If you want to learn to ride a horse without feeling like you have been through a washing machine - go visit Shawn Gannon at French Broad Outpost Ranch! The horses are beautiful and of calm temperament, the scenery is gorgeous (especially in the fall), the hotel comfortably rustic, the ranch food hearty and bountiful, and the staff wonderfully attentive...

I stumbled upon this guest ranch last summer while researching another ranch on Trip Advisor. I thought I had to go out West for a dude ranch experience. I live in Nashville and this ranch is only 4 hours away. No planes but simply a four hour drive and I was transported to a western style ranch in the beautiful... More

Husband and I are always looking for weekend getaways. This place was really great. Located in gorgeous, serene area of Tennessee 4 hours from Atlanta, but beautiful drive and worth it. Loved the family style dinners. Food is good and plentiful. We especially enjoyed the hearty breakfasts. The staff is terrific and hard working. Wouldn't even let me refill my... More

Cowboy fun for Granny & 11 year old girl July 13 - 20. I was hesitant to attempt a dude ranch vacation since it had been 45 years since I'd been on a horse. I discovered last summer that my grand daughter loves horses, so I thought I would give it a shot. I am so glad I decided on... More

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
