What a down to earth, authentic, and thoroughly enjoyable experience. We participated in the Cowgirl Week to celebrate my daughter's 30th birthday. I had found Shangrila Guest Ranch on the internet and we decided to sign up since it was only about 90 minutes from home in Chapel Hill, NC and the program sounded wonderful. Every aspect of the entire... More

I visited Shangrila for the second time in August and had another amazing time. Nothing is too much trouble for Gary and Julie and their staff. The horses are amazing and with hundreds of miles of trails to ride every day is a new experience. Can't wait to return next year.

We just came back from a four day trip to Shangrila, and our family had a great time! Our two daughters had an amazing time helping to get the horses ready, and then helping again after the rides were over. We felt like we had known Julie and Gary forever, they are very welcoming and laid back. We spent time... More

The Cowgirls Retreat was an absolute blast! We enjoyed staying in the Old House. The family made us all feel like part of their own. The food was plentiful and delicious! The ranch hands were so kind and attentive! The horses were balm proof and trails endless! Too many highlights to mention! Highly recommend this wonderful place!

We just visited Shangrila for the first time and could not be happier with our weekend stay. We were absolute novices around horses, but Gary, Julie and their staff provided a great experience. The trail rides were wonderful, meals were ample and tasty, and the front porch was a wonderful place to hang out.
