America's Wildest Hotels
Dream vacations often call to mind sandy beaches, frosty cocktails and poolside massage service, but adventurous travelers can opt to wrangle cattle, sleep in trees, run zip-line courses and ski trails accessible only by helicopter.
This guest ranch outside of Atlanta focuses on horses — owner Inge Wendling has been raising Paint and Quarter horses on the property for more than 15 years. Unless guests request otherwise, all packages include two-hour horseback rides twice a day, either with or without a wrangler. From $80; southcross.com.
