Horseback Riding, Mountain Views, and Private Cabins on 2,000-Acre Dude Ranch

At Pisgah View Ranch, you’ll find blazing campfires, city slickers learning how to rope and ride, and cowboys showing off fancy old-fashioned firearms. But the ranch is set on 2,000 acres amid the Blue Ridge Mountains and Pisgah National Forest.

The property’s homey cabins have a vintage, rustic feel to them, like something from the pages of Little House on the Prairie. Some of which have log exteriors. Select units are outfitted with fireplaces, whirlpool tubs, or covered porches overlooking the lake.

You can go horseback riding on trails leading through woods and past waterfalls, stopping to admire the mountain scenery along the way. Other outdoor activities include fishing for bass, bluegill, and lily pads in the tranquil pond.

Southern hospitality makes guests feel right at home. Each day, you can savor home-cooked breakfast, lunch, and dinner (reservations for each meal are needed at least 24 hours in advance), and on Saturdays, you can eat barbecue and corn on the cob at the ranch’s weekly cookout. Throughout the day, lemonade, iced tea, and baked goodies are always on hand.

Candler, North Carolina: Outdoorsy Activities in Blue Ridge Mountains near Downtown Asheville

The small, unincorporated area of Candler, North Carolina, sits in the southwest corner of the state, near the Pisgah National Forest and Asheville. The forest spreads across more than half a million acres, encompassing waterfalls, whitewater rivers, and tree-covered peaks. It’s an ideal landscape for mountain biking, horseback riding, and hiking along hundreds of scenic trails.

Named 1 of the country’s 10 most beautiful places by Good Morning America in 2011, nearby Asheville combines awe-inspiring Appalachian scenery with an artsy spirit. Downtown you’ll find art-deco and Victorian-era buildings housing unique galleries, specialty shops, and restaurants. While you’re in the area, don’t miss the Biltmore Estate, the gargantuan 250-room chateau built by multimillionaire George Vanderbilt in 1895. Guided tours of the 8,000-acre estate include information on the construction of the house and gossip about its famous residents. You can also tour the onsite winery.

The rustic, old feel we got living life before technology took over. We were able to reconnect with nature and each other.

The staff was so very nice and accomaditing. We arrived late and owner offered to fix us a sandwich and coffee. Our cabin was nice and very nostalgic for us. It was very relaxing for us but would also have plenty of activity for a young family. We only ate one meal there so can't elaborate on that aspect. It was fine, but could get very expensive if you had to eat all your meals there. There is a town about 15 min. Away with all kinds of eating places.
