Avoid the crowds & enjoy wide open spaces – Southern Cross Guest Ranch has you covered! The Ranch has taken several initiatives to protect staff and guests.
All guest rooms, public spaces, and touch points are regularly disinfected with electrostatic sprayers as used by major airlines. Guests choose a private, exclusive-use table for dining that will be only for them for the entire stay. Mid-stay housekeeping has been suspended to eliminate traffic to guest rooms.
Hand sanitizer locations are placed throughout the property. Rooms are also aired out between stays and left vacant for 1 or more days or as much as possible.
Tranquil setting & hours of horseback riding
Just outside Madison, Georgia is the Southern Cross Guest Ranch. Situated within a gorgeous setting of woodlands, green pastures and beautiful horses, Southern Cross provides its guests with a tranquil setting to disconnect from the day to day busyness of everyday life. Our all-inclusive stay covered accommodations, meals, access to snacks and beverages throughout the day, and four hours of horseback riding per day with a morning ride and an afternoon ride.
The staff was incredibly helpful, especially the stable staff. My husband and I loved our horse riding experience and were a little sad to say goodbye to Hope and Shakira on departure day. We loved that we were a part of getting our horses ready for our rides – going down to the paddock to bring them up to the stable, brushing them down, and saddling them up. Don’t worry, the staff is there to assist and to make sure all is well before letting you up on the horse! The horses are beautiful and well-trained. We look forward to returning to the Southern Cross Guest Ranch!
