(5/7/18) - "We were late but Diane and Hugh were absolutely fabulous. They woke up before 5:00 to see us off in the morning. The place is SPOTLESS! The human accommodations are wonderful! I can't say enough positive things about our experience!". . . (7/8/18) - "Excellent place to stay and board your horse. Very clean and the owners were very friendly; willing to do anything to help and make you and you're horses stay pleasant. I would highly recommend staying there if you're traveling through MO.". . . (10/22/18) - "It was great! Diane and Hugh were easy to get in touch with. They were super easy to get along with, and so willing to be helpful and accommodating however they could. They had a stall and run already bedded and with a fresh bucket of water out for him. Our room was so super fancy and cute and the custom sink Diane made was so cool! She also had fresh towels out for us and made us coffee in the morning!". . . (5/1/19) - "My dad and I enjoyed our stay here. The owners greet you outside and check for paperwork. I felt my horse was safe the entire time. The barn is very well set up. All we had to do is throw some hay in the stall and call it a night. The lodging area is super cute and very clean! I'd recommend Duke's to anyone.". . . (6/2/19) - "We really enjoyed Dukes Bed and Board. Hugh and Diane were amazing and the stables were awesome. Really pleased with our visit there. Horsemotel.com was a great website.". . . (7/21/19) - "Wonderful hosts, great facilities! Enjoyed our stay. Would recommend to others! Great restaurant in nearby town of Herman, MO - Barrel Barn, highly recommend the trip to eat there!". . . (9/30/19) - "Diane and Hugh were great hosts. We enjoyed meeting and visiting with them. They made us feel very welcome. They met us and helped settle my horse into the stall. The stall was clean and had fresh water when we arrived. When we left early the next morning they were both at the barn to assist with loading if needed. We would definitely stay there again if the need arises. The only drawback is how far away it is to go eat. But we realized that before we arrived.". . . (10/24/19) - "This couple, Mr& Mrs Mooney, are always a pleasure to be able to stay over at their place. The hospitality is wonderful and the talking and stories are great also.". . . (7/22/20) - "Beautiful setting, incredibly welcoming and attentive hosts, lovely facilities for horses and riders. Couldn't ask for more!!! Thank you for a wonderful stay:-)))". . . (1/27/21) - "How can I say enough good things? We arrived several hours late due to unexpected weather. Diane, the owner, was beyond kind and understanding. She even called us a couple times to check on our progress. We arrived late night, very cold all the way from eastern Colorado in transit to Ocala, Fl. Fresh water and set up for the horses was waiting. Horses had a comfortable, warm place to rest. Easy hook up for our trailer, nice warm bathroom so we didn’t have to set up our rig for one night. Slept so well, just a peaceful place and feeling there. Horses were safe, rested, warm and clean. She welcomed us (total strangers to her) into her home for coffee! I felt like this was a friends place I was staying at and not a “business”. Just excellent experience! Oh, and she was so generous with the cost per night. Beyond impressed. We will be back with future travels. HIGHLY recommend this place! Thank you so much, Diane and Duke’s horse hotel for such a positive experience and place to rest.". . . (5/3/21) - "By far, the best layover ever! Such a wonderful couple! Got in at 8am and we sat and talked until bedtime! I will direct my rigs to use I-70 just so we can use this property for our customer horses' layover! Thank you for the great care and talks, Mr and Miss Monney!!". . . (5/24/21) - "My son and I were making our first long distance trip alone with horses. I wanted a safe place for us to stay with our horses. The Mooney’s at Duke’s Bed and Board certainly offered that. They were welcoming and kind. I felt as safe as if I had been at my own parents’ place. We will definitely stay there again.". . . (5/28/21) - "The horse motel was very clean, comfortable, and safe. The hostess and her husband were very kind. The horses were happy to be off the trailer in a clean stall with fresh water and hay. They also were monitored 24 hours with cameras in the barn. We felt very safe stalling our horses there and would definitely return.". . . (8/4/21) - "We cannot say enough good things about Duke's!! Arrived in a monsoon after a delay with a flat tire, Diane and Hugh met us, got the horses unloaded and settled, and invited us in for coffee until the rain slacked off. The barn is beautiful, well designed and safe. We will definitely be repeat customers!!!"

(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!!". . . (12/16/16) - "Hal and Mary are wonderful hosts and their property is beautiful. My husband and I stayed just one night in their apartment which was immaculate and very clean. We ended up having a lovely dinner with Hal and Mary which they prepared and we stayed up till the early hours talking. My 2 horses stayed out in a nice sized pasture with plenty of grass to nibble on and plenty of room to stretch their legs. I would definitely recommend Circle B Ranch to anyone passing through.". . . (4/5/17) - "Our trip was last year ~5/22/2016. Hal & Mary made our first visit to MO one that we'll never forget! Their hospitality is 10+ and the home cooked meal was reminiscent of home. My husband has diabetes and Mary went out of her way to make sure the dessert was diabetic friendly. Their barn was perfect and the location was very easy to find. We're planning our next trip out west and we'll definitely stay here again!". . . (4/15/17) - "Mary & Hal were great hosts! Very welcoming. Great breakfast too. Everything was very neat and tidy. If we are passing thru again, I would absolutely stay there if available. There was another group already there but they made it all work for everyone without any problem. Thank you!!". . . (8/9/17) - "Mary and Hal were very accommodating and allowed us to turn our big RV and trailer around in their yard since we were so long. The ranch is impeccable. To say the turnout and stall area is meticulously kept would be an understatement. Very nice folks, great price, beautiful setting. They also cared enough to check our papers, which was the first time they were checked from Ohio to Colorado and back. Will definitely go again. Thanks Hal and Mary!". . . (6/29/18) - "You can not ask for nicer people or a nicer place to stay. Hal & Mary go out of their way to make sure that you have a great stay!(for you and your horses) Breakfast was wonderful! Wish we could have stayed a month.". . . (8/21/18) - "A beautiful place with excellent accommodations and friendly hospitality. I highly recommend this accommodation for horse owners.". . . (7/1/19) - "Beautiful farm for smaller trailers (under 25 feet). Very nice farm, quiet and peaceful, turn outs for horses. Parking is very tight and turn around is very small. Owners do not want you to turn around or back in their yard and with larger rigs this can be challenging and also bad for your axles and tires trying to make such a tight turn. Ideal for smaller trailers. Nice location not far from interstate and the town of Hermann.". . . (8/3/19) - "This is one of the best places you will ever lay over.". . . (9/2/19) - "Hal & Mary were the best! Everything is clean and our horse was so comfortable. Their hospitality was wonderful - We have new friends in MO. They went out of their way to make us and our horse comfortable. Would highly recommend Circle B to anyone needing a place in MO.". . . (9/10/20) - "Mary was so nice and we really enjoyed meeting her. Such a quiet and relaxing overnight stop for me and my daughter. The horses were relaxed and able to rest for the next day’s travel. We stayed there on our way back home, too."

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.

(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!". . . (3/21/18) - "Brenda met us and showed us where to pull in and park. She checked our health papers and coggins upon arrival. She had our barn stalls ready with water already in them. Stalls were a nice size and comfortable. We had a nice level spot to park our trailer and plug in. Brenda also has a bathroom for guests to use which was handy. We will definitely stay here again.". . . (7/30/18) - "Excellent facility! Very safe and secure barn and pasture areas. Barn staff very helpful! Also great of them to accommodate my dogs as well. Highly recommended and would definitely stay again.". . . (11/24/19) - "We had a very nice stay with Brenda and Brent. They have a nice facility with a homey feel. Stalls were very nice and all ready for us when we arrived. The horses were very well taken care of and safe. There was plenty of room to turn my rig around and nice level ground to park on. The Bass Pro Shop's aquarium is just 30 minutes away along with lots of places to eat.". . . (2/1/20) - "EXCELLENT! Horse and human well taken care of. Thanks Brenda!". . . (11/30/20) - "Comfortable place, 30 amp. Bathroom available, nice stalls, already bedded and water filled (they bleach buckets between use). Very accommodating so my mule could see another horse. Fenced area for my dog and fresh eggs! $45. Tight turn getting in the gate but doable. Super nice folks. And WIFI. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐". . . (12/15/20) - "We recently were traveling from Texas to Wisconsin with a newly purchased horse and needed a place to stay overnight so we could let our horse stretch it's legs. Everything was last minute but Brent was super accommodating. I was a little unprepared with my electrical hookup but Brent went above and beyond so that we stayed warm overnight in our live in quarters. Their facilities are fully fenced, which is a wonderful thing. Thanks again, Dave.". . . (1/14/21) - "Brenda and Brent were very friendly and accommodating to us and the horses. They let our horses run around in the turnout paddock after a long day of traveling while we got the trailer parked and settled. Great people, highly recommend!". . . (6/12/21) - "Excellent facility for horses and humans. We were very comfortable leaving our World Champion show horses at Green Acres overnight. Brent greeted us at the road to lead us in. To keep all horses safe they check all health papers before horses unload. We appreciate this!! The stalls were ready for both horses and they were large with fans. The 3 humans stayed in Brenda’s adorable bed n breakfast. Less then a mile away with comfy beds! Thank you for your hospitality!! We will be back. S, C, A,"

Two huge mud holes on each side of road turning out, no way to avoid them. Muddy & deep for heavy truck/trailer. Large outdoor pen for horses to exercise & rest-up for continued journey. Paid $40 for electric hook-up, higher than other horse motels. $25 each horse. Water spicket close by. Small, but adequate compared to other horse motels we stayed at."

Comments: (4/23/19) - "I thought it best to write something as "My Epiphany Stables" is apparently new to the roster at Horse Motels International. I couldn't be more pleased and satisfied. It is a stellar facility with outstanding care and service. My only disappointment is not being able to meet the owner to personally give my thanks. However, I was greeted by her top hand who was lovely and incredibly helpful as well as thorough with all care and needs. What a delightful and reassuring experience. Thank you!". . . (10/9/19) - "The owner was easy to communicate with. When we got to her farm we were greeted by a very friendly staff member, Marissa, who was very accommodating with information and anything we might need. The facilities were clean as a whistle, and very comfortable for my mare. I liked that she had an outdoor run attached to her stall so she could move about as she pleased. We were very happy with my horses' stay, and would recommend this stables to anyone needing a place to layover in this part of MO. Thank you for taking good care of my mare!! Lori Neises.". . . (4/8/21) - "MY EPIPHANY STABLES was our last stop from California to Minnesota. What a treat this heavenly Horse Motel turned out to be. The facility is located on pristine farmland/grassland in beautiful Missouri country. It truly is an idyllic setting, we didn't want to leave. Friendly, accommodating host, clean lush stalls with runs, easy in/out for trailers and close proximity to restaurants and motels. I cannot say enough good about this horse motel. Hands down, the best kept secret for horse motels. Thank you, Robyn and George. Most modern, clean, pristine,". . . (5/3/21) - "Top notch. Big stalls with turnouts. Hosts had fresh water in stalls filled and waiting for us. Met us on arrival to assist with parking, etc. Liked it so much, we stayed again on our way back home. Easy in and out and electric hookups. 5 stars". . . (5/26/21) - "While the stay over farm is about 10 minutes from food and lodging, it is a super nice place to stay. Very clean and dry, they have electric so you can stay in your LQ if you have one. Great hosts! They were ready for us, and gave us directions to keep off gravel roads on our way in. I highly recommend My Epiphany Stables.". . . (5/27/21) - "I was greeted by host, on horseback no less. Directed me to parking and helped get my horse settled. RV hookups conveniently located by barn. I will definitely stop here again. Beautiful facility. Highly recommend."

It was really hot (@100), but his barn was cool and he had a large fan going near our stall through the night, so our horse had a very comfortable stay.". . . (8/3/21) - "Super nice facilities.

Comments: (10/8/18) - "This is an easy place to get in and out of. The parking lot is huge with hook ups and water which makes it really easy to maneuver. The facilities are really nice with many options for your horse to stay. We'd definitely go back.". . . (3/27/19) - "This was a great place to overnight. Large lot to park your LQ trailer in with water and electric hookups. Beautiful and clean facility for your animals. Will definitely stay here again!". . . (10/27/19) - "We stayed here in July as we voyaged across the country for a military move. Very easy to access to the facility and the stalls were bedded and set up for us before we got there. Workers were friendly and readily available for us even though we got in late. Parking was easy to access and they even had restrooms. Arena was large and allowed for our horses to stretch their legs. Highly recommend, and also recommend using your own hay.". . . (6/5/20) - "I was very impressed. I highly recommend them.". . . (3/24/21) - "Arrived around 6:15 pm. Met at stable by barn hand, Austin, who was living on site and immediately available if needed. He was very kind, helpful & got us settled in. Stalls are large with concrete walls separating horses. Front of stalls have large metal bars on top, wood on bottom. Part of the bars can be lowered so horse can put head out. Hay either had to go on the floor or BYO haybags. Water was in an auto waterer which our horses were not used to so we put our own water buckets in their stalls. Barn was pretty closed in and had a faint urine odor but did not bother our horses. 35 amp hook ups for our LQ with water nearby. Large gravel parking lot gave us ample turn around room. Quiet and our horses were secure and safe. 3 restrooms with sinks and one shower with sink on site were clean and well kept & appreciated so we did not have to mess with our black water tank in our LQ trailer. Recommend and would return."

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.

(7/30/20) - "Outstanding stop! We are repeat visitors. Traveling from Fayetteville, AR to Milwaukee, WI, this is a nice easy stop for us and our older horses. Nice hookup, excellent paddocks, close to Interstate, it is all good. Last time was chocolate chip cookies ( still warm ) and decadent pound cake this time, yum yum eat 'em up!". . . (10/26/20) - "Susan greeted me with 2 generous pieces of pound cake and a smile. The paddock was clean and she had filled the water trough before we got there. Traveling between Big Piney and Ava, IL I could not get into my next destination until Sunday so this was the perfect layover. She is just a short drive from Hwy. 44 and she allowed me to come in early and to stay late on Sunday. Small facility but very well kept.". . . (11/22/20) - "My husband and I were traveling from Arizona back to WV. We found Susan’s place on the web and called her up at 6am.

We will make this is our regular stop on our trips out west. Everything is wonderful and convenient!"

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 .

(10/17/18) - "Great host, met us at the end of the driveway to show us the way to the barn since it was well after dark. Clean stalls with automatic waterers. We let the horses stretch their legs in his outdoor paddock before stalling them for the night. Owner only has 2 horses of his own that live out, 12 stalls off the indoor and some grass pastures. Nice, private and quiet. Plenty of room to turn around. We stayed at the Hampton Inn which was just 4-5 miles away but there are RV hook ups at the farm. Would stay again.". . .

Comments: (4/7/18) - "Stall was waiting for us - fully bedded with a bucket of fresh water. Very nice. Will stay here again.". . . (12/26/18) - "I'm so sorry, my rating is a bit late, 18 months! My 2 horses stayed here the night of June 18th, 2017. Upon arrival, my daughter & I were greeted by the owner, a very nice lady. I chose to put my horses in a large fenced area across from the barn. They loved it! They could graze & run. There was fresh water available & I brought my own food. Didn't want any tummy issues from different food while traveling. They were calm & relaxed the next morning when I came to pick them up. I was also able to leave my trailer there with them. I highly recommend this place & I will definitely stay here again.". . . (6/1/19) - "Oh my...what can I say but EXCELLENT CARE. I traveled through Missouri and chose Bit of Heaven because I drive a semi rig, a total of 88 feet long with tractor and 53 foot trailer. We were able to get in without issue. Then Jerri. She is incredible. I overnighted 5 head of geldings. One was a little excitable and was slightly upset. Jerri sat in the barn with him, in a lawn chair for over 30 minutes, while I unhooked the trailer. She said she just wanted to make sure he was happy before she exited the barn. She checked on him through the night, without me asking. What a true horsewomen. I'll be back if my travels take me anywhere near Rolla, MO!!". . . (11/28/20) - "Last minute, needed a place to stay on the way back from the AQHA World. Clean, tidy place, easy to pull a trailer into, quick in and out with horses. Highly recommend!"

Comments: (9/18/20) - "We had a wonderful two night stay and were able to take two rides on the Katy Trail. The trail was directly accessed from Liz’s property just under 1/2 mile from out LQ trailer. Access to the campground is great for big rigs (33’ LQ gooseneck trailer). Every site has water and electric (30 & 50 A) and grass and shade. The horse stalls and runs are new and well designed to be covered yet airy with easy water access, lights and electric outlets. There is also a small grassy pasture made with sturdy panels to allow horses to exercise and roll. There is also an easily accessible dump station available. Very quiet, country location but just a few miles to the center of Sedalia with all its amenities. We will definitely be back here again.". . . (3/26/21) - "Loved the quiet setting, great stalls and space. Even had a nice campfire. My horses enjoyed the nice size of the stalls to move around and the arena.". . . (9/9/21) - "Loved this place!!! Owners very responsive to questions. Facilities are great, dump station is a bonus!!! We will be back to stay and do some riding instead of just overnight."
