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.)
(5/5/14) - "The second time we have stayed at Diane & Hugh's and we LOVE IT!!! Would not stay anywhere else. We have 5 show horses (jumpers), 2 dogs, a cat and 3 people. Diane & Hugh are the friendliest people on earth and also horse knowledgable, which makes the stay a very pleasant one. LOVE the monitoring system, which gives us peace of mind about the horses, as we can watch them on tv screens from the house. The pets get to be free in the room and stretch their legs and we all get a good night's sleep before getting back on the last leg of the trip back to Colorado (coming from Florida).". . . (10/9/14) - "Another fantastic visit with the Mooney's! Great barn! Great people! Thank you!". . . (10/17/14) - "These guys are the BEST! We stayed with them on the trip out and back and we were so happy to be bedding and boarding with them on the way home. You will NOT be disappointed. Highly Recommend.". . . (10/21/14) - "Nice helpful people, beautiful old house, nice warm room and bath. Stalls were nice and had individual turnouts.". . . (11/10/14) - "Great facility. Great people.". . . (12/3/14) - "We were traveling across country from Colorado to West Virginia & needed a place halfway to rest the 3 horses. We looked up horse motels and found Dukes at the top of the list. It wasn't far off of our route so we called and booked with them for the night. Diane was very polite on the phone. Upon our arrival, we met Hugh and Diane immediately as they were waiting for us by the stable. The stalls were very clean and the water buckets were full. Our hosts did not hesitate to assist with unloading the horses and getting them settled in for the night. After the horses were settled in, they showed us to our room for the night...wow...very cozy, warm and clean! In the morning they shared some coffee and assisted again with loading the horses back up. Staying @ Dukes B&B was a very pleasant experience & we would definitely recommend them to others traveling with horses!". . . (1/29/15) - "Beautiful place. Great hosts.". . . (3/22/15) - "What a great little spot to board a horse and stay. Quiet, comfortable, convenient and all around the best!". . . (6/20/15) - "Thanks Diane and Hugh for such a wonderful stay! Your facilities are impeccable for both horses and humans and you two are such great hosts! We loved both the privacy of the guest room and your willingness to open up the rest of your house and your charming history to your guests. We slept soundly, our horses were very comfortable and safe, and we would not hesitate for a second to stay with you again!". . . (8/2/15) - "We came as strangers and left as friends. Dukes Bed and Board was the most wonderful place to stay at on our journey from the east coast out west.". . . (9/21/15) - "I stayed at Duke's with my horses 3 times in 2015 and enjoyed it more each time I was there. Very nice people. Jon- Ohio.". . . (9/24/15) - "Not a simple overnight...instead a stay here is an experience in horsemanship and Hospitality. There are horse lovers and horse people and horsemen and the hosts are all three! Top rating !!!!". . . (4/23/16) - "Boarded my horse here for 1 1/2 years; could not be happier with my experience. Wonderful, caring owners who treat your horses like their own. Spacious stalls and pastures all maintained in excellent condition. Only reason for leaving is a cross country move, otherwise my horse would still be there! Cannot say enough wonderful things about this barn!!!". . . (5/26/16) - "The Mooneys couldn't have been more welcoming. Their place is lovely and surrounded by beautiful countryside. My horses were very comfortable and happy with the stalls with runs. I will definitely return.". . . (6/16/16) - "Wonderful place to stay over with horses; clean roomy stalls with attached runs. Hosts were very friendly, and accommodating! Beautiful scenery too! Thanks for having us, Duke's!". . . (7/19/16) - "We were extremely pleased with the service and facilities at Duke's. Extremely courteous and thoughtful hosts who graciously worked with our schedules! Our horses seemed very happy with their grassy, shaded, private turn-out and clean, roomy stalls. We also appreciated Diane lending us a fly mask. You can tell they truly care about their guests and work hard to make sure each horse is well cared for. Would highly recommend!". . . (7/25/16) - "There was a lot of construction on I-70 between CO and MO, and we arrived after midnight. Diane and Hugh waited up for us and were so wonderful to help us get settled. My horse was upset being in the trailer so long, totally understandable, and Hugh was great with him. They were so attentive to his needs. We also had our 5 other fur babies with us. They were so amazing and the place was so cute. I wish we would have gotten there at a reasonable hour so we could have enjoyed the property. I would travel out of my way to stay with them again!". . . (8/3/16) - "Facility and both Hugh and Diane were welcoming. Enjoyed talking with them and interacting with the cats and dogs. Clear and concise directions were provided. Diane also checked area weather for us before departure to make us aware of any potential problems as we headed home.". . . (8/28/16) - "Hugh and Diane are true horse people and they wanted to make sure we and our horses were 110% safe and comfortable. I'd love to duplicate their stalls and runs. We were treated like family! We'll definitely use them again."

Comments: (5/8/14) - "Hal and Mary were very cordial, hospitable and had everything we needed. They welcomed us upon arrival and their place was very accessible and well fenced. Because we arrived a bit early they allowed us to put our equine in a turn out that was quite larger than our expectations. They loved to run and nibble on grass before their evening in the stall. The barn was clean, cool, and secure. One of our equines is over 17 hands and he had plenty of room. We would recommend their facility to all of our traveling equine friends. Thanks again Hal and Mary. Happy Trails!". . . (5/27/14) - "Excellent in every way; very accommodating and sweet. Gorgeous facility, highly recommend. Thank you for a wonderful dinner, also.". . . (11/10/14) - "Staying at Circle B was like staying with family. Good people; friendly. Great facility and great food.". . . (5/13/15) - "Awesome accommodations, awesome people! Thank you for a great over night!", , , (6/2/15) - "Circle B Ranch and Hal and Mary are one of my favorite stops and two of my favorite hosts. They are super friendly and helpful. They have a beautiful farm with green grass turnout for the horses, or spacious stalls (which I used in a huge thunder storm one night when I arrived). They cook a delicious dinner if requested and one of the best breakfasts I've ever had. Both of them are very accomplished cooks (Hal is a professional) and their downstairs bunkroom is spacious, welcoming and very comfortable (and full of horse paraphernalia!) I give them an enthusiastic TEN STARS!". . . (5/23/16) - "Wow-such a wonderful stay with Hal & Mary. We were overnighting with our horses and dogs. We stayed in our trailer, our horses stayed outside overnight. Hal & Mary were absolutely lovely; very warm and welcoming. Our dogs were able to stretch their legs in their very secure, fenced back yard, while our horses relaxed in the grass field (secure fencing). We ate dinner and breakfast with them, which was amazing. We plan to revisit the area (gorgeous facility and area) on vacation and will probably stay with Hal & Mary in their bunkhouse again. I would definitely stay here again with our animals. Highly recommended.". . . (6/19/16) - "We loved our stay with Hal and Mary!! The turnout was wonderful, their farm was immaculate, and cooking was to die for!! Would highly recommend this to anyone - cannot wait for our return trip.". . . (7/24/16) - "On our way back to Canada from Colorado and needed a place to rest with our horse. Mary was a great host and was very helpful. The barn and facility were very nice and with ample stall space and a small run from the stall. Mary had a small grass area beside the barn that we elected to use since our horse had been on the trailer for a few days. There is a sleeping facility on site, but we were travelling with our two big dogs so elected to sleep in a local hotel. Mary was very friendly and offered us breakfast and freshly baked lemon and zucchini bread. Highly recommended!!"

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.". . .

(11/13/13) - "Joan was right there when we arrived and was very helpful in getting our horse settled in a beautiful stall out of the pouring rain. We would highly recommend her place.". . . (7/5/14) - "I will definitly come again! Highly recommended! Thank you so much, Eberhard.". . . (7/4/16) - "Great place to stop overnight. Joan is very friendly and her place is very accommodating and well kept. We had a large group of 6 trailers, 10 adults, 11 kids, and 13 horses. She had a spot for all of us. Paddocks are good size and stalls are very roomy. Easy to keep in touch with as we travelled enroute to her place. Thanks, Joan. We will see you again next year. LBR of Michigan."

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.". . . (2/9/16) - "Such a wonderful couple who greet you at the road with a flashlight and help direct you in. They help you with your horses, help feed and fresh water is already provided. Stalls were super clean. Friendly and warm hospitality. We were there Thanksgiving Day and they even invited us to stay and eat with them but unfortunately we had to decline and hit the road again. Best horse hotel experience!"

Comments: (6/15/16) - "Very friendly people. Clean. Love the large turnouts. Highly recommend staying here.". . . (6/21/16) - "We were moving from Ohio to Colorado with two horses, two cats, & a dog. Doug & Kathy welcomed us after our long day on the road & gave us a tour of their facilities. There was a round pen where we turned out our horses for a time to stretch & relax before putting them in their stall for the night. Easy access & close to I-70, excellent facilities, good parking for our truck & trailer, only 10 minutes to hotels & restaurants. Doug & Kathy were very friendly & everything was as Doug described over the phone. Highly recommended!". . . (7/9/16) - "Nice facility, not too far off the highway. Hotels and other amenities are the next exit down the highway. Very close (less than five minutes) to the Warm-Springs Ranch, breeding farm for the Budweiser clydesdales...worth a visit!!". . . (8/4/16) - "Great place; close to the interstate, easy in and out for big rig, beautiful stalls, great host. Will stay again."

(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!". . .

Will definitely stay there again on our next trip to Oklahoma.". . . (5/22/14) - "Cindy provided a great service with the horse in mind.

Big solid stalls that are well kept. Plenty of room for our 6 horse trailer. Can't get much closer to amenities; the drive back to the lodge runs right in front of Panera (St. Louis) Bread. On our first trip I thought I was mistakenly pulling into a shopping center but, sure enough, Circle R is back there. Once at the stable you feel secluded and wouldn't guess that you were so close to everything. I have already stayed here several times and plan on returning.". . . (7/5/14) - "I will definitly come again! Highly recommended! Cindy, thank you so much - Eberhard.". . . (8/13/14) - "Awesome!! Clean well kept and couldn't ask Cindy to be any more helpful even on late arrival! Checked in with me along the way to make sure all was good! Huge stalls and runs! Came back thru a week later and stayed again! Easy to get to and not far from interstate but a cute quiet place! We will use them again for sure. Thanks for everything.". . . (1/2/16) - "I've stayed at Cindy's place a couple of times now. Once in June and once in November. I was traveling from MA to OK both times to horse shows. We were traveling with young horses both times and it was so nice to have a large, clean, safe stall with turnout so the young horses could stretch their legs. Due to an accident on one of our trips we arrived very late. Cindy was there to greet us and help us get our horses settled. We used the electric hookup at the barn as we were traveling in a LQ trailer. Nice level parking spot. Love that this facility is close to the highway but far enough off to be away from the noise and lights. Will be making reservations for this year again."

(7/6/15) - "An amazing stop on our trip across the northeastern US! I could not have felt more comfortable leaving my mare overnight in this facility. The attention to detail is second to none. I would not hesitate to recommend!". . . (4/23/16) - "We found Stillwater Farms and its host to be wonderful. Our horses were very well taken care of; clean stalls, fresh water, place to exercise, well looked after. Would highly recommend this facility to anyone traveling through the area.". . . (4/23/16) - "After a long day on the road we arrived at Stillwater Farm and were greeted by Sheri and received helpful information regarding local lodging, food, veterinarians, etc. Her inquiry of important information regarding the personality, etc., of our horse assured us that we were leaving her in good hands for the night. Sheri's contact with us regarding Hallie's status through the evening and morning before we picked Hallie up was well appreciated. We would definitely use the services of Stillwater Farm again.". . . (7/10/16) - "We called the day of our travel and Stillwater Farms welcomed a late night arrival with open arms. Able to drive in and see this beautiful operation where the owner was ready with shavings and freshwater. She had security . . . She checked waters in the early morning hours. What a great location off the interstate. It was the best horse hotel we have ever stayed in and we travel the USA. Way to go Stillwater Farms.". . . (7/31/16) - "We agree with all the above reviews. Sheri even filled the water buckets in the middle of the night and made note of how much water the horses drank before that. We have a camper to stay in so the proximity of food and lodging is not a concern. This place couldn't be any better.". . . (8/19/16) - "The owner contacted us a couple of times on the day of our arrival and greeted us with a big smile as we drove into the facility. She directed us where to park our rig and showed us to our horses' stalls which were very large, clean, and already had water waiting for our horses. The horse facilities were excellent, including the indoor wash rack. The owner monitors the horses throughout the night and leaves notes for you on the stall to let you know how they have rested, water consumption, etc., which is very good to know when trailering horses long distance. There are electrical hook ups for your trailer and a very clean restroom for guests. There is no shower, water hook up or dump station available on the property. The owner is friendly and remembers your name. She runs a top notch facility. I would definitely stay here again when in the area, and I highly recommend it to others.". . . (8/25/16) - "We stayed 2 nights at Stillwater Farm. Sheri was extremely welcoming and attentive to all of our needs. I'd give the the cleanliness score a 10 out of 10. Most layovers are fairly clean, but Sheri goes the extra mile and even sanitizes the stalls after use. We utilize many layover facilities throughout the year, this one is definitely top notch on our list! Hope to see you soon! Thanks, Zach.". . . (9/17/16) - "Perfect place to overnight! Gracious host met us as we pulled in; gave us a tour, had popsickles and ice cream! My horse's stall was huge, safe and immaculate, with a disinfected bucket full of cool water waiting for him. I cannot stress enough how clean everything was, and how good I felt about my horse's safety.". . . (9/20/16) - "We just returned from a three week vacation which included a three day drive back home. Stillwater Farm was our final stop before reaching home. Upon our arrival Sheri took very good care of us. She showed us around her facility and had the large stalls ready with fresh shavings and water. We stayed at many places on this trip and I feel Stillwater Farm was one of the best run and cleanest facilities we visited. I was very pleased with our 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.". . . (1/7/15) - "We have stayed here several times through the years with our horses & this farm is home away from home. Eddie & Sherry Lovin.". . . (5/9/16) - "Teri was very accommodating and let us keep our mares out in her arena. Having them confined again to stalls, I felt it was better they could stretch their legs and they did so. They loved her water - nice clean trough for them and I hung their hay bag on the sides of the fence. We were there 4/24/16 and would stay there again. She has a bunk house for rent if you want to stay on the property. We found a Marriott not too far way that also had food."

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. You are the best. Safe secure and easy to get to. Will see you again on our next trip. B&C Ontario, Canada.". . . (4/21/12) - "Hello Susan, great to see you on our return trip in April 2012. Super as always. Next time we'll stay and ride with you. Have a good summer. Bryan & Carol Turner.". . . (4/10/13) - "Thanks Susan for another great stay. As always you make our trips wonderful. Love your set up for our two horses. See you in Nov 2013. Bryan & Carol, Turner.". . . (11/9/13) - "Hello Susan, it was great to see you again. Wonderful stay and will see you on return run. Luv ya. Bryan & Carol, Ontario Canada, A great stay!". . . (3/8/15) - "Super nice hostess and great relaxing facility; very good baked goods! Thank you for a great stay and will be seeing you in spring on the way home.". . . (7/10/16) - "Susan was a great host. Her place was easy to get in and out of with a 40ft living quarters horse trailer. Would definitely stop again on our way through.". . . (7/22/16) - "Absolutely great stay every time. We stay every year on our way to Arizona. We even pulled up one year without our horses; just our dogs. Wonderful, wonderful host!"

Comments: (9/5/14) - "Pia and Scott were wonderful. This was our first time traveling this far and doing a lay over stable. Our arrival time was very late, but they were eager to meet us and had the entire area well lit. They were extremely helpful. The stall for my horse was very roomy and clean . The facility is very nice, well taken care of. We will stop here again most certainly . We stopped on our way To Texas and again on our return trip . The location of the barn is close to numerous restaurants and gasoline stations. It is close to the interstate and not difficult to find.". . . (6/24/15) - "Friendly hosts, easy access and multiple restaurants/hotels close by. Small private barn in quiet area."

Comments: (7/14/14) - "The owners and all persons at the stables were very friendly and willing to help. We had a somewhat late arrival but that didn't seem to bother them. The facilities are more than what our horses were use to, hard to make them leave. Be careful if you have a gaited horse, a gentlemen there specializes in them. Just kidding, we would have loved to have been able to let him work with our gelding. They are a little off the beaten path, but to me that means less worries One suggestion, do not rely on your (GPS) for directions if it says to follow Hwy 60 to Hwy 125. Best way to get there is via hwy 65 and exit in Ozark where Lowe's is, go east, then you can follow the GPS recalculation."

Comments: (8/27/16) - "The host ensured our horses were safe and he allowed us to leave our trailer on site. 15$ a night was well worth the oversight and attention that was paid to our horses! We will take advantage of the on site RV hook up next time! Only one box stall was available but our orher horses were accommodated in the arena and small pasture. Plenty of leg room for everyone to stretch their legs after a long day of hauling!"

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." . . . (7/7/15) - "Sharon is a great communicator and very responsive to emails/calls, etc., in advance of our trip. The facility is in a beautiful hillside location and the rooms in the turn-of-the century farmhouse were lovely. This was likely the favorite stop for our horses on the trip, as they had a chance to frolic about in an open pasture. Having said that, please note that her fences are not electric, if that is an issue for your horse. Also consider turning them out in a fly sheet if traveling in the summer months. Sharon was a gracious, friendly host who was always at our service and we enjoyed our visit very much.". . . (8/18/16) - "The Albee Farm was a very nice final stop on our trip. Sharon met us right away, had the pen and water ready to go, and stayed out and chatted with us while we watched our horse adjust to the accommodations. She provided a stall that opened out onto a grassy pen so he could go in and out when he wanted. She also provided a pitcher of sweet tea for the humans, and the rooms in the house were comfortable and quaint. Would stay here again."

Comments: (7/29/16) - "A delightful stop for us and the horses. Tarkio rodeo grounds is well kept; several 30 amp hook ups and 2 50 amps. Great place for horses. They let us give the horses run of the arena which was nice. Two of the fair board members stopped by to check on us. They also allowed us use of the restroom in the bunkhouse. Great stop!!"
