Here is what our guests are saying about us...

Your entire staff was beyond belief. I can't think of a better way to rediscover the joy of horseback riding and the magic of those beautiful animals. The quality and diversity of your horses and the knowledge of your staff are beyond anything we could have hoped for. It made our brief stay one of the most memorable vacations we have ever taken.

Just wanted to send a note to tell you how much my family enjoyed our stay at Southern Cross Ranch. It was wonderful!!! It was the perfect family vacation and the horses are the best. In fact, our youngest son cried all the way home because he wanted to bring Candy (the horse) with us. My family now shares the same love for horses that I have and Southern Cross is responsible...Thank you for that wonderful gift.

A dude ranch in Georgia?? Is that possible?? That's what I thought when I found your website. My best friend and I decided to give your Ranch a try and words are not sufficient to describe the wonder of our stay with you. The setting was picture perfect with its green rolling hills edged with woods that called for you explore them, and our room was so comfortable and relaxing. The meals were as varied and truly unique as they were utterly delicious, and the number of exquisite horses you had made it easy to match every rider's temperament and experience. Yet all of this would have been nothing had it not been for all of you who made us feel like family and treated us with unmatched personal service. We fell in love with all of you.

We are 3-time visitors. This is the only vacation destination in the world we have visited 3 times, and we can't wait to come back for our 4th!

I just wanted to take a moment to tell you how absolutely pleased we were with our family vacation at your establishment. My husband who had been complaining about "what will there be for ME to do, I don't ride!" did ride every chance we had and he loved it! In fact, we never left Southern Cross the entire length of our stay, because there was no reason to. The staff were all wonderful, the food was OUTSTANDING (I am crying over no peach-puff pancakes for breakfast and Swiss roll with dinner!!) the room was perfectly appointed and the ranch staff were fantastically patient and accommodating. We enjoyed our walks with Casey (the dog) who was a gracious host. We didn't want to leave! Thank you for sharing your little slice of heaven with us!

We celebrated our 15th anniversary with you this weekend and we couldn't have picked a better place! The riding was fantastic - thanks to all of your staff and the food was incredible. Thank you for a wonderful 4 days. We will be back.

Boys and dogs just need space and there is plenty of it at Southern Cross Guest Ranch. I went for a daytime trail ride with my sons ages 8, 12 and 14 and everyone had a blast. I especially like the boys had to participate in getting the horse ready, from visiting the tack room for their saddle, to brushing the horse down. Afterwards, we continued the fun biking in the fields and just petting the horses. It was a perfect day that felt like a visit to grandma's in the country. Here's a bit more about our visit see my full write-up here

Your place is the best. I wish I could stay longer. I cried while writing this + probably will after. My horse Classy, she's the best and I love her. I'm going to misssssss her soooooo much! I hope we come back next year.

We will never forget the place. We didn't know heaven was in Georgia. Thanks so much for the fun and great food!

Gee, where do you start when trying to express the impact this gorgeous place has had on us? The friendships, care, courtesy, and peace of Southern Cross were overwhelming. I could live here. We will be back!!!

My family and I were looking for a vacation where everybody could do whatever they wanted, and do it safely. The children had a wonderful time, and said that given the choice of vacation Southern Cross would win over Disney! The food was excellent. The staff with the horses was great. They gave us exactly what we needed in help and independence. I would recommend this place to any family.

I searched the Internet for just the right everything to surprise my husband for his 40th. Your ranch was even more than I could have hope for. Thank you!

Our special time - our 25th wedding anniversary - will be another fond memory for us. Your warmth, care, and hospitality were greatly appreciated. The accommodations were even more than expected, almost like a fantasy! Thanks for all you did to make us feel "special".

Parting is truly such sweet sorrow. This is our 4th visit here and we will be back again! I may have to start visiting twice a year. Everything was superb - staff, food, accommodations, and of course all of your beautiful horses!

Wow! That is the first word that comes to mind when I think of my stay here I booked this trip for my husband because he always wanted to be a cowboy. Now, he thinks that his dream has come true. The freedom of this ranch is like no other place I have ever been. You can do as much, or as little as you want. Once you check-in you are on your own. We felt as comfortable as if we were at home, but with a full staff that takes care of everything. The food was fantastic, and the horses and trails were like nothing I had ever seen. This place is one in a million. Thank you!
