Southern Cross Guest Ranch, conveniently located in Central Georgia’s Historic Heartland, is just under an hour’s drive from Atlanta. Upon arrival you will find a horse lover’s paradise which is home to more than 150 quality Paint and Quarter horses. The ranch is best known for its exceptional hands-on horseback riding program, unguided riding opportunities, and a peaceful, comfortable setting as well as good old-fashioned southern hospitality.
Guests can choose from various things to do while on their all-inclusive vacation, but riding enthusiasts will be delighted to know that horseback riding is the featured activity at Southern Cross. For newbies lessons are available, if so desired, and each rider no matter what their skill level will be assigned their own horse for the duration of their stay based on individual skill level. For those looking for a real hands-on as well as bonding experience with their horse grooming and helping to tack your horse is encouraged by their well-trained staff. Daily riding excursions consist of small groups of three to seven riders and will take you across beautiful open pastures and lush wooded trails. The scenery surrounding the ranch is truly something to behold.
When not in the saddle guests can either take a dip in the swimming pool or enjoy a soothing soak in the hot tub. Vacation time can also be spent relaxing with a good book, playing pool, darts or foosball in the game room, riding mountain bikes, throwing horseshoes, shooting basketball or simply taking a nap after a delicious home-cooked meal. For longer stays guests can take advantage of the ranch's convenient location to visit many of Georgia's local attractions like golf courses, shopping, fishing, skeet shooting, museums, and much more.
During the autumn months vivid colour displays of fiery red, burnt amber and orange falling leaves as well as spectacular sunsets and brilliant harvest moons are part of everyday life at the ranch. When November rolls around it also means that Thanksgiving is drawing near and Southern Cross makes this holiday an event to remember! It is such a popular week of the year that it often sells out months in advance. In addition to their All-Inclusive schedule of meals and horseback riding, the ranch also cooks up a large Thanksgiving feast. Oven roasted turkey, baked ham, lamb, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, stuffing, corn, and green beans, as well as all the traditional “fixin’s” make this a truly memorable meal. This year why not put your shopping list away, pull out your suitcase and book a Thanksgiving getaway at Southern Cross Guest Ranch. Fill your days with fresh air, beautiful autumn-coloured infused scenery, fun activities, great food and make some memories that will last a lifetime.
