About Us


R - Ranch in the Mountains Resort
The Vacation Resort of the North Georgia Mountains
How would you like to be an owner of over eight hundred acres in the North Georgia Mountains? What if, in this idyllic mountain setting, you had horses to ride, cabins, RV sites to choose from, a cool salt water swimming pool, and a great lodge for entertaining your friends? Next, add a professional management staff, freshly mowed hay-fields, and deep green woods adjoining the Chattahoochee National Forest near the Appalachian Trail. Picture yourself sipping coffee on the porch of your reserved cabin, while you watch horses graze just across the fence.

Welcome to R-Ranch in the Mountains!
For more than 30 years, this unusual vacation property has been a favorite in the Dahlonega/Suches area some 70 miles north of Atlanta. Here, you and your family can enjoy horseback riding, swimming, fishing, hiking, tennis, rustic cabins and/or RV camping whenever you want. As you'll quickly discover, this unique private resort rivals the best of Georgia's public and private recreation areas . . . while offering a safe, restricted, gated environment . . . and it can belong to YOU.

As an R-Ranch owner, you have free, unlimited access to a herd of over 30 horses. Not only can you receive lessons in the two fenced corrals, you can take your pick of the 20+ miles of North Georgia terrain for a trail ride. Large pastures and over twenty lavish stalls allow for the best in equine accommodations.
