The big sky is wide and blue, and our spirited horses and our cattle are on the move. Get ready to relax in rugged indulgence. The historic Butler-Cape House, built in the mid 1800's, is the heart of the Ranch. Our rooms, cabins and suites are hand-crafted for your delight. Antiques, artifacts and artwork await you, and you'll be refreshed by comfy beds, quilts and fluffy towels.Care for a little adventure? We have beautiful acreage to ride.

Watch our foals learning to become cow horses and our calves scampering after the herd. Big Scarecorn Creek invites a family expedition or a rendezvous point for cocktails.In the moonlight, roast marshmallows around the campfire and listen to the true tales of the history of the ranch. We'll tell you about the Cherokee Indians, the Civil War, and the 'Moonshine War' here. Wake to the smell of rich coffee and the sounds of the ranch coming to life. Your hearty breakfast is served on the antique french dining table in the Butler-Cape House. Savor the freshest of foods, often straight from our garden.

I really enjoyed my night at Seventy four ranch. Pam, Larry, and the ranch hands were all great, as were the other guests. I stayed in the Cowboy Cabin and found it to be a fun experience. Breakfast was excellent. It was just as you would expect a working ranch to be. If I wanted prim and proper, I would have stayed in Bulkhead and paid twice the price. Thanks, Larry and Pam, et.al. for a great night!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the ranch. The staff was very friendly, courteous and helpful. Helped my granddaughter, who had never been around horses and said she was not going to touch or ride a horse, learn to ride, clean out hooves, bath and brush a horse, ride the horse and be able to stay on the horse as he got up from laying down. Our family is planning to have our Thanksgiving dinner and outing at the ranch. Recommend the ranch for a peaceful and enjoying weekend. I stayed in the cowboy's cabin and loved it.

Me and my wife stayed here from April 5th thru April 9th, 2013. We went to the Final Four basketball games in Atlanta and wanted to stay somewhere fun within driving range of Atlanta. This place was wonderful! The house is beautiful. We stayed in the Blue Room. The breakfasts are delicious and Pam is flexible on the times which was good for us as we were getting back late from the games, especially the Championship one on Monday night (where Louisville won, GO CARDS!). The land is fabulous with horses and lots of friendly dogs! I enjoyed sitting outside and reading and drinking coffee every morning and afternoon. Pam and Larry are very friendly owners with some great stories to tell. The nearby town of Talking Rock has some good antique shops and Jasper has plently of restaurants. Highly recommended!

A fun place to stay. Dogs and horses everywhere. Every inch of the place meticulously decorated in a ranch theme. Authentic ranchers. Delicious and unique breakfasts. Horseback riding on 50+ acres. Who could ask for more, we'll be back.

The moment you step into the property Larry and Pam will make you feel like part of the family. Rooms are very unique and clean, you will have a real ranch experience. Amazing breakfast will start your day right, thanks to Pam! And make sure you have a chance to meet Junior, a real cowboy, full of information about ranching! Must have experience! We will go back!!!

My wife and I have been to quite a number of exclusive b&b's throughout the country, but nothing truly compares to the Seventy-four Ranch. The Overlook is pure rustic luxury, with a beautiful vista of a rolling pasture, embroidered hardwood paneling, couch, plenty of extra space, and even a porch with chairs -- the pictures on the website frankly just don't do it justice. We stayed on a cold, winter night and I had great fun making it perfectly cozy with the wood burning stove. The animals on the estate are for real. Pam was very informative about the locale, and it was obvious she loves what she does. What's more, she was very accommodating even after I had to change my travel dates several times. The next morning I even met a real, live cowboy wearing chaps who tames mustangs in his spare time. What an authentic ranch!

It is rare to find such a slice of heaven so close to home! My wife and I packed up two of our dogs and headed North to the Seventy-four Ranch in Jasper this weekend, and were rewarded with an outstanding Bed & Breakfast experience. The rustic motif is well executed at the Seventy-four Ranch, from the antique tub to the Native American rug. Our stay in the Overlook Room transported us back to a simpler time in history, blended with just the right touch of modern amenities. The conversation with the proprietors was lively and intelligent, the breakfast meals were five-star quality and the three-acre fenced yard was much appreciated by our dogs. Local restaurants rounded out our stay with quality dinners. Before we left, we were planning our next vist to this wonderful getaway! Whether you're looking for a rustic adventure or a romantic weekend, the Seventy-four Ranch has something for all (and the dogs LOVE it!).
