Sleeping choices include chalet type units that provide privacy and flexibility for families. The rustic looking yet modern lodge rooms sleep four with a private bath. The four cabins contain room to sleep between two and eight people. They serve most of the meals family style, which means all the food is placed on the tables at the same time. Passing the plates is part of the ranch style tradition. Entrees include T-bone steak, pork tenderloin, fried chicken, or barbecued ribs along with a selection of vegetables, breads, and desserts. Bonus points:
Enjoy the new “old” western hotel, with big saloon and dance floor and five new rooms upstairs. Play cards, sit and relax, look at the mountain views, kick up your heels or take a nap on the porch. No matter what you do-You'll feel like you just walked into a John Wayne movie. Activities:
Naturally on a dude ranch horseback riding is at the top of the list. The wranglers provide all ages and skill levels with corral orientation. Those that need extra training can easily get it. During the summer months young guests may engage in horse painting, enjoy arts and crafts, and try their skills at treasure hunting. Each week the wranglers conduct several team-penning events because they know from experience that everyone enjoys the rodeo game of pushing cows into the box. During the summer season there are two river rafting excursions planned each week in addition to tubing down the French Broad River. Every evening there is live entertainment that often includes bluegrass band, guitar picking, sing-a-longs, bonfires, or line dancing. Friday night is the great square dance and hoedown. Bonus points:
Plenty of time in the saddle because each guest is assigned a horse for the week. The ranch has access to thousands of acres so trail rides are different each day. They include rafting trips in the price of the stay. Family Reunion Benefit:
