A few words About us

Cedar Creek Stables is a family owned and operated horseback riding facility located in beautiful Lake Lure, NC. Nestled around the lake since 1993, we offer activities for all ages. Guided trail rides are not the only thing we do here. We also provide gem mining, fishing, event space for weddings or any special gatherings as well as pony rides for the little ones.
Cedar Creek Stables is proudly open 361 days a year, weather permitting, only closing for Easter Sunday, Independence Day, Thanksgiving day and Christmas day. Explore the trails with us and make unforgettable memories that last a lifetime.

During our peak season (April-August and again for October) availability fills up fast. Reservations are highly recommended.
