Nestled in the Great Smoky Mountains of North Carolina, Clear Creek Guest Ranch is an all-inclusive, seasonal resort with seemingly endless activities for each person in your family. For children, there’s kid’s only cook-outs, a game building and Clear Creek Tepee, a program for children ages five and older. For adults, there’s horse drawn carriage rides, volleyball, square dancing and karaoke. The whole family will enjoy the heated pool, hot tub and even tubing down the babbling brook that runs along the resort’s property. Other family activities include white water rafting, hiking, mountain biking, and most notably, horseback riding — there are 45 resident horses.
Included in the ranch’s all-inclusive rates are three family style meals per day. Additionally, The Cantina offers cocktails for mom and dad, as well as coffee in the morning.
Guests stay in cabins, which come in one-, two- and three-bedroom variations. Three-bedroom cabins are best for large families, as they offer plenty of space and gorgeous mountain views.
Clear Creek Guest Ranch is open April through Thanksgiving.
