Pisgah View Ranch

Cindy Cogburn

For Cindy Cogburn, Pisgah View Ranch is a family affair. The property is family owned and operated since 1790.

“My great-grandmother originally ran a boarding house out of the main Ranch house and in 1941 my grandparents, Chester and Ruby Cogburn, opened the Pisgah View Ranch,” Cogburn says. “They were consummate hosts, cooking delicious family-style meals and entertaining their guests with stories, songs and square dancing.”

Today, Cogburn, a retired veterinarian and Air Force lieutenant colonel, operates the ranch, a popular venue for family reunions, corporate events and weddings. Her three brothers manage the farming and timbering of the ranch.

“It has been our pleasure to host families for decades and have them return here generation after generation,” Cogburn says. “Our cabins are rustic and comfortable, our delicious, family-style cooking makes vacationing here a pleasure and there is unmatched beauty and serenity horseback riding and hiking here in the beautiful valley surrounding Pisgah, just 20 minutes from Asheville.”

Pisgah View Ranch is located at 70 Pisgah View Ranch Road in Candler. For more information call 828.667.9100, e-mail, visit or find them on Facebook and Instagram.
