Cataloochee Ranch


Perched on a mountaintop in the Smokies, Cataloochee Ranch is a Relais & Châteaux resort that mixes classic ranch fun with exceptional accommodations and cuisine. Founded almost a hundred years ago by the Alexander family, Cataloochee Ranch has been a favorite mountain getaway for generations of high country adventurers. Spread across hundreds of acres along the southeastern border of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the property’s breathtaking elevation, open balds, and long range views are complemented by classic comforts, perfectly rustic cuisine, humble hospitality and hands-on, expert-led activities.

Reservations may be made online at or by calling (828)926-1401.

Open Thursday – Monday

For the first several months, we will only have overnight lodging available from Thursday afternoon through Monday morning, so as to allow construction to continue without interfering with the guest experience.

11 Cabins (There will be 18 accommodations total once all construction is complete next summer.)
