This is by far the most unique and satisfying vacation pkg I have experienced. DO NOT THINK OF THE MOVIE "CITY SLICKERS" WHEN YOU THINK OF THIS PLACE. This is Southern Hospitality at its finest. From the stately "Mansion" we slept in, the Charleston Suite, to the beautiful, well mannered, and trained horses we rode, the Southern Cross Ranch is 5 star plus. Even if you just go for the accomadations/meals and take no horse ride, this is the place for total relaxation. The dining is without equal. The menu, while leaning toward the southern palate we hear about and love so much, offers a full assortment of entrees to satsify even the most selective tastes, even the young ones. EVERY meal offers at least 2/3 main meat/protein dishes, several veggies, starches, and the desserts.... just prepare to loosen your belt at least 1 or 2 notches during your stay. The kitchen is open 24/7 for coffee/sodas/snacks. (The chocolate cookies are homemade)...and will put your gramdas cookies to shame. EVERYTHING is included in your package. One note: Alcohol is NOT provided/offered. You may BYOB however, which is perfectly acceptable. There are no addtl charges, except for the gift shop. NO HIDDEN USER FEES. There are several packages to choose from, or you can simpily go for the day to ride a horse. Whatever your level of horsemanship, whatever level of southern comfort you require, the folks at the SCR will cater to your specific needs. I guarantee it.
