Beautiful place, friendly staff, and wonderful safe horses. We have been 3 times and each experience has been amazing. The Magnolia & Southern Belle rooms are above the dining room and both are perfect, they are my favorites because they are convenient to the game room and dining areas as well as having great views. Both of those rooms are...

My girlfriend and I spent three days at Southern Cross under the all-inclusive package. It was very beautiful and romantic. We had a lot of fun horseback riding, doing puzzles, watching movies, and playing games. The food the ranch served was delicious and had plenty of options. Additionally, the ranch did an amazing job accommodating my gluten-free girlfriend for her...

If you love horses, you will love Southern Cross B&B working horse ranch! Beautiful trail rides, beautiful scenery, very friendly staff, and three awesome meals a day! Only 8 miles from historic Madison, GA the only town Union General Sherman did not burn along his march through Georgia.

We went to Southern Cross based on Trip Advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. I find that the attitude of the staff of any hospitality venue is paramount and Southern Cross was great across the board. Southern Cross is not what I call fancy but it was extremely comfortable. Everyone made us feel like a part of the facility. Breakfast...

My son, his wife, two sons, my husband and I spent a lovely four days, three nights at Southern Cross. We never were tempted to leave, staying busy with horse riding, walks, and delicious meals. Staff are polite and helpful, the property, beautiful and spacious, and the horses are such a joy.

This "dude ranch" bed and breakfast made a perfect quick getaway. We were to go in June but had to put it off. Excellent time to go! We are returning home now with great memories, full bellies, and new friends. The food is delicious. The room we had was well appointed, Scarlett O' Hara. The horses are well trained, and...

We stayed here for a weekend event in Madison so we did not have chance to ride. The room we had was a little small but very comfortable. The bathroom was large with a large shower, no tub if you like one. We only had the breakfast but it was one of the best B&B buffet breakfasts we have ever...

Even if you don't ride horses, this is a great place to get away form it all. A very relaxing and peaceful paradise nestled in among sweeping views of pleasant pastures with over 200 horses. The rooms are very nice, cozy, and welcoming after a pleasant ride on one of the many horses available. If you are an experienced rider...
