Perched on a mountaintop in the Smokies, Cataloochee Ranch is a Relais & Châteaux resort that mixes classic ranch fun with exceptional accommodations and cuisine. Founded almost a hundred years ago by the Alexander family, Cataloochee Ranch has been a favorite mountain getaway for generations of high country adventurers. Spread across hundreds of acres along the southeastern border of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the property’s breathtaking elevation, open balds, and long range views are complemented by classic comforts, perfectly rustic cuisine, humble hospitality and hands-on, expert-led activities.
Grab the reins for private and group walking trail rides across the ranch and the national park. Soak in the views on half-day or full-day rides, a picnic ride to Gooseberry Knob or a refreshing Ride & Spa Treatment at The Swag.
