Spent one glorious day and evening at the Cataloochee Ranch. Felt at home from the beginning with friendly greetings. Our room was in the main house with a back door and window overlooking the mountain valley. The room was rustic but very comfortable. The bathroom had nice toiletries. A hair dryer would be a nice addition. The bed was a... More

When we were throwing around ideas on where to get married, being from Florida, but having family in Maggie Valley, we wanted to return to our spot year after year so the Cataloochee Ranch was the spot. Billy Smith and the staff couldn't have been more friendly, accommodating, and helpful to make our special weekend that much more special. The... More

We were passing through the area and scouting locations for future trips. Enjoyed our visit to Cataloochee Ranch and will make plans for a visit in future. Beautiful views, gourmet food, lovely accommodation and a rich history. Well done!

We live in western North Carolina, so we did not need to avail ourselves of the apparently fine lodging at the Ranch that includes both lodge rooms and cabins. However, we had heard good things from friends about the dining experience, so we decided to give it a try. They offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and we were there for... More

This quaint, quiet little resort offers amazing views of the Smoky Mountains. My family and I enjoyed the horseback riding and dining. This is a great little ranch if you're looking to get away from it all and just have family time.

We have rented 5-6 cabins every year for 13 years at Cataloochee Guest Ranch for 3-4 nights at a time over Memorial Day Weekend (16-20 people every year) and we look forward to returning after our time ends each year - we have already booked Memorial Day Weekend again for 2017. We have seen our children grow up and mature... More

If there is a prettier place than Cataloochee Ranch only three hours from home, I don't know where it is. The cool breezes, stunning mountain views, lovely cabin accommodations and delicious food were just the beginning of our great vacation. Lots of hiking trails with wildflowers galore and a waterfall here and there, two horseback rides a day (for even... More

Stayed there 2 nights with a group of couples. Rooms are very big and clean, with all the amenities and really great views. Most of the rooms are actually cabins and I think all have fireplaces. We ate 4 meals there and they were exactly what you would expect ... outdoor dining of grilled steaks and potatoes one night and... More

Apparently the manager likes to take her small dog with her when she checks the rooms. That wouldn’t be a problem; the problem is that –she told me while cleaning the floor— the last time the dog was in my room was two weeks ago… so that means that no one went to clean/check the room after that. She wasn’t... More

Eduardo, On behalf of everyone at the ranch, I wanted you to know we feel terrible about what you experienced. It certainly is not typical, and not what we expect of our employees. We take cleanliness very seriously. Please know that the housekeepers involved in this situation are no longer employed at Cataloochee Ranch. We have also put new protocols... More
