Escape the city and get away to mountain majesty, come stay in your very own charming mountain cabin - at a refreshing 4,000 feet. Your secluded vacation cabin has a fireplace, 2 BR's/1 Bath, some have mountain views. Plus, there's a picnic area outside with a gas grill to cook those fresh mountain trout you just caught in the lake on "your" 200 acre estate. Arrowmont Stables has one of the best horse ride programs in the SE, maybe even the country. Before every trail ride, you are given a live demonstration or shown a video describing how the horses have been trained, a little about their personality and some about safety. Then you are given an opportunity to try your horse in the ring before going on the trail. This way your horse can be changed if needed before leaving for the trail. This takes about 30-45 minutes and is free of charge. We believe it is important.Your entire family can have fun going on a hayride. Tour this beautiful mountain for about an hour. Plus, stop for a refreshing drink of some apple cider on your way back to the stables.There's plenty to do to keep you busy...horse rides, trout fishing, hiking, camping, hay rides, vacation cabins and those ever popular campfire stories or just relax and enjoy the views!CALL (800)682-1092 TODAY TO RESERVE YOUR SPECIAL TIME!!
