East Coast Dude Ranches

A Story of Leadership
As far as Dude Ranches go Clear Creek Guest Ranch has been a successful business model for 19 years.  During the shoulder seasons spring and autumn) CCR has attracted dozens of groups engaged in meetings/conferences relating to education, training, spiritual and corporate retreats, corporate leadership development, team building, wellness, weight-loss and weddings to mention a few.

Black Mountain Range North Carolina
Nestled in a pristine cove at 3,200’ elevation, nearly surrounded by the Pisgah National Forest, Clear Creek Guest Ranch offers something that other East Coast Dude Ranches can not, spectacular views of the Black Mountain Range, including Mount Mitchell at 6,684’ elevation, the highest peak in eastern America.  Cooled in summer and protected in winter by the high mountains, Clear Creek enjoys the best in 4-season climates.  On-site activities include horse-back riding, rodeos starring CCR guests of all ages, trout fishing, hiking, games, music, line dancing and of course, relaxing in or beside the pool or adjacent hot tub.  Nearby, we find many additional recreational and cultural pursuits including horse-back riding in the National Forest, tubing and fishing in the South Toe River, white water rafting in the Nolichucky River, hiking and biking along dozens of trails, among them Mt. Mitchell State Park.  Don’t forget to save time to visit the numerous nationally recognized artist studios along the South Toe Valley and at Penland School for Craft.  Area artists are especially well known for glass blowing, ceramics and woodworking.  Plan ahead, there are multiple activities for each and every family member, days pass quickly!
