We returned this summer for another great family get together week after our initial wonderful experience last year. This year we had 16 family including 8 children ranging from 1 - 16 years old and a family of friends with 4 more. Grandma and Grandpa stayed in the wonderful A-Frame cottage which served as the hospitality center during the week and the evening gathering place for the requisite gin rummy games. Everyone else were in the own family cottages. We cannot say enough about this beautiful spot nestled in the valley under Mt. Pisgah. The daily horseback riding for the children and some adults is a clear highlight of the week but the beautifully maintained swimming pool, the great little fishing pond, the wide open playing field and the constantly in use shuffleboard courts keep everyone busy all day long. Evenings include story telling by local speakers, smores around the campfire, and the Thursday evening square dance in the barn with locals from all around, a great band and the fantastic Pisgah Valley cloggers. Of course the best part of all, especially for the moms, is the great family style meals served three times a day. The food is lovingly prepared and plentiful and is served by the great staff of the dining room - such a wonderful experience. If you are looking for a great casual family vacation or reunion spot you won't find a better choice or nicer people.

We took a one hour horseback ride here and it was exactly what we wanted. The horses were lovely the guides were great company and the scenery was beautiful! The ranch is so peaceful!We plan to stay here and take advantage of the fishing next time we come to Asheville!

We are a group of friends from various parts of the states who get together twice a year. We rented 2 cabins for 3 nights and couldn't have been more pleased with our choice of location! There is a gorgeous view of Mt. Pisgah no matter where you are on the ranch. You are also close to Asheville and the BlueRidge Parkway! The owners and all staff are so friendly and accommodating. The meals are served family style and were plentiful and delicious! We stayed in The Cardinal cabin which is perfect for couples! It has 3 bedrooms with each room having its own private bath and a large living room that is shared. We had a microwave and mini fridge in our cabin and tissues, bar soap, shampoo and conditioner was supplied. The bath towels were so soft and fluffy and our water pressure was superb! Our cabin was very clean and housekeeping was in daily. Each night there was entertainment, and our favorite was professional storyteller Barbara Freeman from Asheville! It was a very fun evening full of laughter, while sitting around next to the cozy fire place in the parlor! I also wanted to note that my husband and I both have Verizon cell service and an Android and Apple phone and we got 3 and 4 G service throughout our stay. I'm sure this varies, but that was our experience. We are going back to the ranch this summer and can't wait to take advantage of the horseback riding, swimming, fishing, and also just relaxing! See you in July PVR, and thank you for your wonderful hospitality!

We were looking for a place to stay one night on our trip and my brother found this. I was unsure how it was going to be and we were very pleasantly surprised. The ranch house is lovely and welcoming. Our little cabin was comfortable and cozy with our fireplace. The staff was wonderful, friendly and accommodating. Family style dinner was delicious. Horseback riding was very nice. Fun activities nightly.

Our family held a family reunion (30-35 of us) at Pisgah View Ranch in June 2018 and it was absolutely the best location we’ve selected in many years. It was quiet, has lots of early American history on the property, as well as a working horse stable (and horse back riding). It is family owned and the service and care we received was incredible. Fishing and a game room for the children kept them entertained while the adults reminisced about the good ole days. Great for a weekend or a week. Highly recommended!

Good website. I picked this outfit because they were able to accommodate my party of ten (ages 10-82). Made reservations over the phone and they were very friendly and sent me info and waivers through email Immediately. They called to confirm the day before. You have to be onsite 45 minutes prior to your ride time, but four in our party could not make it at the last minute. The ranch graciously added one of our riders to the first group so we could all ride together. Price was reasonable for the hour ride ($40 pp). One hour was enough for mostly first time riders. We had limited trails to access due to mountain lion activity (!). We would recommend.

This was our first visit to a ranch. We drove from Pennsylvania and were late check-ins and Cindy waited up for us to make sure we settled in well. We had a two person stone cabin built in 1941. It was quaint (we were staying on a ranch, after all) and clean. We were surprised it had an air conditioner but only needed to open the windows at night for cool air. The bell rang at 7:50 & 8:00 AM for breakfast which was abundant and good! The ranch is spacious and peaceful with a wonderful view of the mountains. All who work here are friendly and accommodating. After a night of rain, we still went horseback riding with Ashley avoiding the slippery trails and opting for fields. Ashley made the experience safe and fun. The pool was available and clean. We could see the fish in the catch-and-release lake. The price for our stay, horseback riding and meals included was extremely reasonable. The ranch is also a short drive to Mt. Pisgah and the Blue Ridge Parkway, and Asheville. Wonderful people. Wonderful stay. We will stay here again and bring friends next time.

When I went to the Pisgah view ranch for the first time i loved it! then for the second time with my cousins. the second time was my favorite because we road horses A LOT! twice a day! We had a great time! We had loads of fun staying at this beatuful resort!

Pisgah View Ranch is truly a special place. From the moment you pull off the main road onto the property you begin to appreciate the beauty of the surroundings. With stunning views of Mt. Pisgah from the main lodge, the pool, and the other amenities the ranch takes advantage of a great backdrop. Cindy, Sharon and the entire staff could not be more welcoming, warm, and friendly to make guests feel at home. The food is fantastic, not only are the family style portions far more than a group would ever need but the quality is unmatched. The menu redefines country cooking and would challenge some of the nicer restaurants in nearby Asheville. The cabins are modest and simple but well maintained and perfect for families with young kids. The horseback riding is excellent with a staff that are great with kids. The activities at night include storytelling, star gazing, campfires, and dancing and were the highlights of our stay. All in all, Pisgah View Ranch is a wonderful place to visit, unwind, and relax in a beautiful setting among the Blue Ridge Mountains.

My favorite person and I on a whim decided to stay here a couple days. I wish we had been able to stay longer. The staff is beyond friendly! I felt as if every person working there was the owner. The cabins are rustic but clean. Your front porch view is a million dollar one. If you choose to eat there it's best if you are a big eater and left your diet at home. The portions are huge! Call them direct to book as some sites said nothing left when in fact there were many many available. This place has everything including gentle horses.
