We just happen to be the only guest on the ranch, the day after Thanksgiving. We had the entire downstairs unit all to ourselves. Walnut Hollow is a beautiful place, and the perfect place for couples to re-connect. At first we were disappointed about not having a television to watch the football games on, but that turned out to be a blessing to us. We spent time talking and walking up and down the mountain trails in back of the ranch. As far as you could see, in every direction, was the beautiful creation of God to behold. So our walks and our talks were inspired by this place and, Charlie, the owner and manager of the ranch, was first class also. We enjoyed getting to know him, and he made our stay there so much better. He was always available if we needed him for anything and the downstairs unit we were staying in was clean, comfortable, and attractively decorated. We could not have hoped for more than we received from spending time at this beautiful ranch. I took lots fo pictures to be reminded of all the beauty that was there (the cows, the horses, the donkeys, the goats, and even Charlie’s cat -- and last but not least, the beautiful mountains that surrounded us, and the green grass on the rolling hills and the churches on those hills). It was peace and tranquility and a blessing from God to be there. So for those of you who are looking for a place to get away and re-connect, we recommend Walnut Hollow Ranch. It has something there for all ages --

We stayed at Walnut Hollow over the Eclipse weekend. Although we didn't take advantage of the tours and other amenities we had a great time. Charlie was an excellent host and his ranch is pretty awesome. Definitely buy some meat while you are there, it was delicious!

Walnut Hollow Ranch is more than you will ever expect! I cannot even describe the breathtaking beauty of the setting. The kindness and hospitality of Charlie, Mark, and Jackie surpassed any expectation I had more than 100% We will definitely be back, and I highly recommend this to anyone seeking a quiet out of the ordinary stay in the mountains of North Carolina.

We loved our stay on the ranch! The property is beautiful and well taken care of. Charlie, your host, has tons of information on the nearby areas including hikes, mountain biking and other activities. Our biggest piece of advice would be to make sure not to set up your tent too close to the pond -- we had a bullfrog as our neighbor for the evening! However we WOULD highly recommend going to the Walnut Hollow Ranch store and buying steak and other local goods. Amazing stuff!

Beautiful, quick getaway from Atlanta. It was nice to unplug for a little bit. We loved that we could purchase bacon and eggs (among many other offerings) on site and enjoyed eating on the farm. We ventured out to Cold Creek winery and did some hiking as well.Great trip & accommodations. We'd definitely come back.

My family and I very much enjoyed our stay at Walnut Hollow Ranch. The steak and eggs we bought from Charlie were delicious!! The best you will ever eat! I so enjoyed eating breakfast on the patio every morning listening to the cows and the birds!! It is such a peaceful retreat! Seeing the 20 wild turkeys was so cool! Watching the morning sky reflect on the pond was beautiful. Charlie was a wonderful host and very informative about the ranch and the area! The Loft had everything we needed. Our daughter enjoyed all the animals. Learning more about the true local farmer and their humane ways was truly enlightening. Support your local farmer, food co-op, farmers market, etc. Thank you for everything Charlie!
