Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We had a great time on our trail ride! Besides our family of four, there were about 10 other riders plus three guides. Most of the group had limited experience, but our guides did a great job advising us what to expect and gave us a "heads up" about the behaviors of specific horses and how to handle those. The mountain trails were beautiful and the stop at the top of the meadow where our guides took pictures of each group was appreciate d--our pictures came out great! Thanks to our guides for a fun and relaxing experience for our family! We'd definitely recommend Dutch Creek Trails if you're in the area--it was a relatively easy drive from our rental near Appalachian Ski Mtn.

    I can’t speak more highly of my family’s experience at Shipley Farms! Mr. Shipley (Bob) was such a kind and gracious host to our party of 4 adults and 4 children (3 and 1 year olds). We purchased tickets for a cattle feeding experience, and we got that and so much more! Our tour started in the office, where Mr. Shipley gave us illustrated pamphlets about cows and taught us about cows and his family’s history on the farm. He walked us outside and showed us how they gather the feed for the cattle, which my son loved watching! Then we walked out and into the pasture to see the cows! Bob explained the cows’ grazing schedule and how he moves them, and then we got to see it in action! Bob called the cows and motioned to them, and they made their way into the next pasture! It was a unique experience that the children truly enjoyed! Next, they put out the feed, and the cows ate just steps away from us! The cows gave us lots of moos, and the kids were amazed by the whole experience! Mr. Shipley talked directly to the kids about what they were seeing, and he also asked them if they had any questions. They all adored Mr. Shipley! We walked back to the office, where Mr. Shipley gave our 3 year olds signed cowbells! It was such a wonderful tour, and it was obvious how well the cows are cared for. This was the perfect afternoon activity for the kids, we are already looking forward to returning on our next trip to Boone! Thank you so much, Mr. Shipley!

    This was a great stop for my 6&8 yr old. They loved the bunnies, chickens, and ducks and the stories that went with them. The couple that run this are very friendly and informative. Get there early for fresh eggs and mushrooms.

    If you are looking for a peaceful place to vacation, this is it! Relax while enjoy the views, and sounds of nature. Choose if you wish to hike the many trails, drive the Blue Ridge Parkway or visit the many towns within driving distance.
