Comments: (Editor's Comments: Due to the large amount of feedback we have received on this facility, all of it positive, we've posted only the more recent comments. We thank everybody who has sent in so many nice comments.)
(11/13/10) - "I stayed here a year ago, travelling alone with a young tb, two dogs, and two cats. I stayed on the property, in the guest room which meant I didn't have to unhook. I was able to turn a 38' four horse head to head around in their drive. Diane called me during the day to check on me and I ate dinner with the family. The farm is beautiful, and I walked my dogs that night and again in the morning in their fields. My cats were welcome to be free in the room and enjoyed being out of their crates. I would highly, highly recommend staying here. Its only a few minutes off the main interstate and well worth it.". . . (4/4/11) - "Hello Hugh and Diane, you guys were great and love your place. Stalls were great, safe, warm and very clean. Thanks for being ready for us, it made our travel home so much easier. You guys are great. Will see you again and would recommend your facility to all. Enjoy your retirement and will stop and stay again. Bye for now Bryan & Carol (Ontario Canada) Thanks for the coffee it hit the spot!". . . (5/7/11) - "Very accommodating for our children, horses and dogs. We appreciated the clean barn and stalls, the attention to detail and the camaraderie. A wonderful resting place for those traveling with horses! We will stop again if out that way!". . . (7/12/11) - "Beautiful place; absolutely amazing place. Loved the lightning bugs; it was so gorgeous. Our room was clean and we loved staying there; such a wonderful experience. I would recommend anyone going through Missouri to stop there with their horses.". . . (5/13/12) - "Great place, best horse motel we have ever stayed at. Owners are great people, know horses and make the stay very nice.". . . (6/26/12) - "This is an impeccable facility. Hugh and Diane obviously work hard to provide a safe, smart, secure and friendly facility, both for horses and humans.". . . (10/4/12) - "The Mooney's could not be nicer. They were very friendly, helpful and welcoming. The facility was excellent and our horses enjoyed a good stretch and a good night's rest during our trip from East TN to KS. We highly recommend Duke's as a great place for the traveler and their horses.". . . (11/5/12) - "Can't say enough about this dear couple and their comfortable accommodations. Our horses enjoyed safe, clean, roomy stalls with run outs while my husband and I rested in the quaint b & b. We had a delightful dinner in Herman and came home to hot coffee and help getting our horses settled for the night. While we hope to only make one trip from Ohio to Oregon I would highly recommend!". . . (11/14/12) - "Even if I didn't have horses, I would want to stay here! From the moment we arrived, we felt so welcome. The horses were treated like royalty, my horse Phillip was really taken by Hugh. Thank you so much for everything, Hugh and Diane!". . . (2/3/13) - "Wonderful stay. Very warm & friendly couple. Nice room and nice facility. Highly recommend!". . . (6/3/13) - "What a great place to have a rest after a long drive. Facilities are excellent, for both horses and humans, and Diane and Hugh are the most perfect hosts. Michaela and Serban Radu, Winnipeg, CANADA.". . . (6/15/13) - "The Mooney's are a wonderful couple with a beautiful place! They stayed up all night till we got in. The place was lit up and ready for us. We have stayed with them 3 times and will always stop on our way across country. Do yourself a favor and stop and stay even if you don't have a horse. You won't regret it!!! Thank you, the Kellys.". . . (8/4/13) - "We loved Hugh and Diane and their entire place was beautiful. We had a great visit with them and found we had a lot in common. We would definitely go back again. Lovely people, lovely farm. So glad we found them here.". . . (8/5/13) - "Wow, what a great place to keep your horse/horses for the night. Luxury 5 Star Horse hotel. Diane and Hugh are great people and took good care of us. Great way to end a wonderful two weeks of riding in the Shawnee National Forest. I e-mailed Diane and she got right back to us. Needless to say my "Happy Camper" was happy we stayed at "Dukes" for the night. Ken & LaVonda.". . . (9/7/13) - "Truly a neat place to stay. We are military moving from TN to KS and chose Dukes Bed and Board to stay overnight with our zoo of animals. Not only were the owners accommodating, they were knowledgeable and friendly. We automatically felt right at home and welcomed. My husband and I had a great dinner in Herman, and had confidence in leaving our two horses, two dogs, and two cats with the Mooney's. Could not ask for a better place to stay!! Highly recommend as a stop for any cross country travel!". . . (10/6/13) - "Our third stay at Dukes! We travel all over the US with our horses and Dukes is by far the BEST horse accommodation we have ever experienced. Kind, horse savvy hosts who have considered EVERY detail to provide safe and comfortable horse lodging. The lodging for humans is every bit as good! Plus Hermann wineries and great German food is just minutes away. An Oasis for both horse and human!!!". . . (10/19/13) - "Awesome people and facilities! We travel with our horses across the country twice a year and we have stayed on many farms. Hugh and Diane are wonderful and the facilities are great! Thanks so much! We will be back!". . . (10/29/13) - "Hugh & Diane were so helpful and accommodating. They are just great people!!! We were coming from CO to NY and would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it to anyone.". . . (1/22/14) - "Excellent facility, very friendly owners, I would definitely stay there again.". . . (3/30/14) - "Thanks to the Mooneys for providing nice clean stalls with good runs for five head of Wyoming horses a few nights ago. We stayed in the lovely guest room and all of us were well rested for the next leg of the trip home. Highly recommended for travel-weary horses and humans!". . . (4/8/14) - "Hugh and Diane were the greatest. We had a long drive from PA to CO in March of 2014 and they did everything they could to make our stop smooth and comfortable. The horses had excellent accommodations and we felt like we were at home in our accommodations in their beautifull house. We plan to make this our stop on the trip back home later this year."

Comments: (8/8/13) - "Wow! Joan has to be the greatest host so far on this cross country trip. She is so "horse savvy" that we felt perfectly good leaving our "not so good at traveling" 36 year old Arab mare that we are trying to get back home in her care. The place is gorgeous. The stalls are great. I felt like I should have been somewhere in Kentucky on a horse farm!!! This place is highly recommended- she does extended stay too!! Thank you so much, Joan!!! BJ". . . (11/2/13) - "Very nice barn; grass available weather permitting. Ample parking. Friendly owner who carefully reviews health papers. I wish other barn managers would be as careful.". . .

Comments: (12/13/07) - "As promised...Great Hospitality! Brenda was waiting on the road with a flashlight when we arrived at midnight! Safe, secure and clean inside barn stalls. We highly recommend this facility.". . .(1/111/08) - "God bless Brenda and her flashlight. Just as she said, great hospitality... easy access and she gives very explicit directions and we all know what a blessing THAT is. Thank you.". . . (6/3/10) - "Moving cross country from Tennessee to Washington with horses, dogs and kids. Hostess was extremely accommodating, kind and gracious. Facility was terrific. After horses in trailers all day, she had a wonderful turnout pen that was a wonderfully secure rest place for tired horses. Beautiful stall's were available if needed. Trailer parking and turn around were very good. Will return again with the second set of horses.". . . (11/11/10) - "I have been useing horse motels for years, and Brenda Green's hospitality far exceeded my expectations. Safe, clean stalls, easy accress to interstate, very friendly accommodating host. I will be back.". . . (12/12/10) - "Great place, would highly recommend it. Parking might be a little tight for huge rigs but at 60' we didn't have any problem. Brenda even had heated water buckets with water in their stalls on our arrival. Very clean, comfortable, safe stalls....nice pleasant place, as your host is.". . . (10/23/12) - "Wonderful farm and people. They greeted us at the road with flashlights and directed us where to go. Nice grassy paddock for turn out. Fresh water provided before we arrived. Very friendly and accommodating. Stall and turnout options are both wonderful. Would stay again.". . . (7/7/13) - "The owners, Brenda and Brent, were wonderful! I arrived late, and they met me out on the road w/flashlights. They even invited me into their home while THEY called around to help me find lodging. I am a female traveling alone, and I could not have found a more comfortable place to put my horse up for the night. I would absolutely stay at their farm again.". . . (10/30/13) - "Brenda was ready for us and our three horses. Brenda had a huge arena we could turn the horses out into prior to putting them up in stalls. She was very helpful when one of our trucks broke down. I would recommend to anyone that staying here felt very safe and comfortable for all."

(4/28/13) - "We followed our GPS (Google maps) which took us to a different Allen Rd ( be sure and use owner's directions). Long story short, we were on tight back roads and tried to turn around in a grassy area getting stuck in mud. Cindy not only came to our location but found a tow service for us. She was a godsend. Cindy is very nice, her place is very well kept, large stalls, easy access to highway, food, groceries. We are driving a 28 foot trailer and had plenty of room. Thank you, Cindy!". . . (8/26/13) - "Excellent place to layover. Would highly recommend to anyone traveling through. The facility is great and accessible and the owner is friendly and accommodating. A+!!". . . (12/8/13) - "This was our first experience with using a horse motel and we were delighted with the service Cindy provided on our trip from central Ohio to Tulsa OK and back. This facility is very near the highway and close to restaurants and lodging. We used the trailer hookup and slept there, and got some much needed rest. Will definitely stay there again on our next trip to Oklahoma."

Comments: (8/10/13) - "Great place to stay and great host on July 17, 2013. Sheri was there with water for the horses as soon as they were unloaded. She checked on the horses often and filled buckets as needed as well and kept us informed.". . . (8/8/13) - "Sheri at Stillwater Farm was very accommodating to Daryl and me and our two horses, Grace and Nevada. We went to town for supper and did not worry at all about our horses. Even though we stayed at Stillwater Farm overnight, Sheri still monitored our horses to make sure they were resting comfortably and had plenty of water. She even kept track of their intake and output. I would not hesitate in staying there again, and we highly recommend Stillwater Farm for anyone looking for a place to stay the night or someone locally looking to board their horse. We would have liked to have stayed there again on our return trip from out west, but our return traveling schedule just didn't allow it. We do hope to visit again soon. Thanks Sheri!". . . (1/4/14) - "This was an excellent facility, we couldn't have asked for better accommodations for us and for our horse. Sheri called to check on us when we were late arriving, it was dark & cold and she still met us when we arrived. When traveling with our horse we look for safe and comfortable facilities.....this definitely is both. We would recommend staying here to anyone looking for a layover spot! Thank You for a great stay!"

Comments: (7/18/07) - "We did not stay long at Kittyhawk ranch, as some road trouble the day before had delayed us and we needed to make up time in our schedule. However, Teri was a very kind and gracious host. The apartment suite, which was a bargain price for what it is, was charmingly decorated in a Western motif, and we were able to let our dog and cats out of their cages (most of our other stays did not allow us to bring the pets inside). The horse facilities were fine although, as an east-coaster, I was not used to pipe-corrals. I know they are common in the west, so probably not a big deal to people moving West to East. However, even though it was the first time in them, my horses were fine with them. A recommended stay.". . .(8/22/07) - "A nice quiet, relaxing stay for the horses and humans! Cute, comfortable apartment right next to the stalls. Very friendly people at the stable.". . . (7/17/12) - "I kept my mare at Kitty Hawk Ranch during our cross-country move. I found the hosts to be very friendly and the facilities were wonderful. My mare was allowed turn-out for the night which we both appreciated since she had been in a trailer for so long.". . . (8/4/12) - "Arrived after very warm trip dog tired. Terri was very friendly, helpful and made us welcome. The bunkhouse was cool, clean and very nicely arranged. Full kitchen with micro. Good eating places also minutes away. Would recommend this stop to all my friends.". . . (6/12/13) - "I hosted a horsemanship clinic at this facility. Teri went above and beyond to accommodate the needs of the instructor and the students. I stayed in the bunkhouse. My roommates and I were extremely satisfied with the comfort and charm of our accommodations. We look forward to returning to Kitty Hawk in the future."

Comments: (9/5/10) - "Rolling up I-44 my cow ponies, cow dogs and I were road weary! We had tried a couple of places en-route but to no avail. Then a call to this place answered right away and we found a true jewel of Ozark hospitality. Just a couple miles off I-44 at exit 214 in Leasburg MO is Newt's Nod Away; peaceful, tranquil, beautiful, so much so we stayed an extra day! Thanks to Susan Newton and her fine Foxtrotters Buck and Star, we left clean, well rested and safe. I look forward to visiting again and again!". . . (2/3/11) - "Hello Susan you wonderful life saver. Susan put us up during a horrendous snow storm on our way to Arizona. The highway west was shut down and she invited us to put up for the nite or two until it was safe to go. She had two stalls, electric and water ready for us. We actually stayed 2.5 days due to the storm. A great lady, a wonderful ranch and the stay was perfect. Would stay there anytime and would recommend to anyone. Thanks for the cookies; they kept us going. Susan thanks so much from the Canadians heading west. You made our trip worth while and great to have met you. See you again, B.T.". . . (11/17/11) - "Susan, thanks for another great stay. Short but sweet on our way from Ontario, Canada to AZ.

Otherwise very good.". . . (5/5/10) - "Very nice suite above the stalls in the barn. We had a choice of putting the horses in an indoor arena, in stalls or an outside pasture. Sharon was a very friendly person. Our truck & trailer was parked quite close to a road. The farm itself was only 5 minutes off the interstate. I would recommend it to anyone."

Comments: (1/13/13) - " I would highley recommend Big Star Ranch to anyone who may be traveling through Southwest Missouri. The facilities are first class for horses and people alike. The stalls are clean and safe with plenty of room for the horse to rest and relax. The cowboy quarter’s felt like home away from home. It was nice to be able to step out of our quarters and check on our horses anytime we wanted. It was wonderful to visit a place where you’re welcomed the moment you arrived on the property. I will definitely visit this place again whenever possible.". . . (11/29/13) - "A very nice place and the owners were great. They were there to help us and provide whatever we needed. The stalls are large and the facility is first class. It was easy to find and was able to handle our 60' rig. Although we did not use it, they have a very nice apartment in the barn facility complete with washer and dryer. I would highly recommend this facility based upon the professionalism and character of the owners and the top notch facility that anyone would be happy with. We will stay here again on trips going West.". . . (12/31/13) - "We stayed here with our 3 horses on our journey from Michigan to Arizona. The facility is beautiful and horse facilities are top notch. We also stayed in their "cowboy quarters" guest accommodations and were amazed with how beautiful it was- I can pretty much guarantee these are the nicest cowboy quarters you will ever find. Excellent and friendly hosts as well. We hope to stay there again on our return journey."

Comments: (4/7/11) - "Really nice Bed and Breakfast in a very nice, very clean remodeled and updated farm house. Tall green grass in small pasture (1/2 acre approximately) and 2 nice box stalls. My room looked right over the horses. I highly recommend. Small but nice and adequate with great lodging and hot homemade breakfast.". . . (4/8/11) - "We just loved this facility; the way that the host cared not just for us but but for our 2 horses was a very welcome treat. I will reccommend The Albee Farm and Sharon to all of my friends.". . . (7/7/11) - "Very friendly host offered to babysit the horses and dogs whilst we went to dinner. Very nice bed and breakfast. Very private and secure little place that was very close to I-29 and around the corner from Walmart and tons of great eateries (Cheddars, Olive Garden, Panda Express, KFC, etc). Not suitable for large trailers but great for couples, singles or those traveling with 2 or 3 horses that want a nice place to relax.". . . (11/7/11) - "Wonderful Bed and Breakfast - - not suitable for large trailers. Great food, nice pastures, peaceful setting, close to shopping and dining. Would highly recommend for 1 or 2 horse layovers. Lots of bang for the buck."

Comments: (10/8/09) - "My husband was shut out of the fairgrounds for arriving too late so I got on the net and found Eda and the Rockin'E- even after calling after hours and showing up dreadfully late she welcomed my husband and took fabulous care of the 3 horses! She offered Jimmy accommodations at her Bed and Breakfast and cooked a breakfast that was wonderful! She was heaven sent to a weary traveler and we highly recommend the Rockin'E - I know when we are on the road we'll go back!". . . (11/6/09) - "Eda and Mike Johnson are great hosts - Eda is a major MO Fox Trotter judge and she and Mike breed some lovely Fox Trotters. She and Mike are horse lovers of the highest orders - their home and guest rooms are lovely, comfortable and quiet, unlike a motel/hotel room on the interstate. Their barn isn't fancy, but the stalls are clean, the barn is clean and neat, their attention to you and your horses are beyond what you will find - especially for the money. Plus - if you're a true horselover, you'll enjoy sitting around and exchanging stories with these genuine down to earth folks. They also have Krystal (who's last name I don't remember) but who is their barn manager and is an exceptionally competent young woman who will insure that your horses have the very best of care. Don't miss this exceptional opportunity to lay over, ride great trails and enjoy wonderful hospitality! Sallie.". . . (111809) - "The experience was Awesome! They are by far the best value in MO.". . . (1/13/10) - "Wonderful host! Eda cooked up a wonderful breakfast for us before we hit the road, great way to start the day!". . . (2/19/10) - "OMG. We have a NEW FAVE! Very easy access, Walt got there just about dinner time and they stopped what they were doing, helped offload the horses, got everyone settled in and invited him to dinner. Stuffed peppers...everything was great, the help, the facilities, the food and the company, the morning coffee. And the price is right. This could motivate Walt to travel I-70 more often!". . . (6/19/10) - "Eda always makes for a very comfortable and pleasant stay. EZ access is even easier as she will meet you just off the Interstate and guide you in. A godsend. Great cook, great hostess. Human food & lodging? check and check...". . . (10/26/10) - "Recommended. I can hardly imagine a better host! Might not be easy access for large rigs, but Eda would make it work!". . . (11/9/10) - "We stopped here on our way to the National Drive in Indiana. It was our first experience with "Horse Hotels". We were totally satisfied. It set the bar high when we travel with horses. Thanks, Eda you are the best.". . . (3/27/11) - "We had an accident on the way through to pick up horses, called Eda and they came and got us while the truck was getting temp. repaired to make the run. Stopped back through with horses going home, great facility, and even better people. Truly happy to make the contact, and know I have a friend for life. God Bless Eda and Mike. David H.". . . (4/21/11) - "Eda was a gracious hostess, the atmosphere was homey and her hearty breakfast was excellent to carry weary travelers through lunch. Each guest room had its own bath and the rooms were very clean. The Rockin E was very close to I-70 and restaurants. The pipe panel corral stalls are not fancy but were more than adequate for the horses. Eda had pre-filled our water for us so all we had to do was back right up to the barn, unload, throw out some hay and head for dinner. Would definitely recommend and stay again.". . . (8/24/11) - "When our truck broke down after all day hauling from the east coast, the folks at the Rockin E came to get us, three horses and one dog. Eda made everyone feel right at home, taking great care of us and the horses. HIGHLY recommend!". . . (10/14/12) - "Just a lovely location, superbly hospitable hostess and great accommodations and food for an extremely affordable price. I would look forward to staying again!". . . (8/18/13) - "I'm a normal traveller-one who stays in clean, average priced hotels. I am traveling from the far west corner of Montana heading to Chattanooga, TN carrying five horses. When we set up our reservations, I asked the owner about the sleeping conditions and she assured me that we would be comfortable. Wow- it was wonderful!! The owner met us at the barn and helped us get settled. She brought us into the house and showed us to our rooms. The rooms were beautiful, clean and comfortable- there was a small refrigerator stocked with cold drinks-a roomy, clean bath room and large, clean bed-as nice as any hotel we would have stayed in without horses. That night the owner made us a small supper and the next morning there was a large breakfast ready for us (eggs, biscuits, gravy, sausage, coffee, etc .)! Great stay-thank u for your hospitality!"
