Comments: (6/11/09) - "Knightly farm is top of the list for overnight for me. Heidi is the best hostess. Horses had clean stalls waiting for them and refreshments for us. We stayed to ride in hunt country and had a great time.Will always come back on our way from Virginia to Florida. S.Hogarty". . . (3/31/10) - "My family and I have stayed at many places over the last 35 years but have rarely been treated to such hospitality. Everything is immaculate and we are sure to return. Heidi is a wonderful hostess.". . . (11/6/13) - "I wish there was a rating that was better than positive, the experience was exceptional. Stalls and barn were immaculate, airy, with ceiling fans. Heidi was a wonderful hostess. Good hotel and restaurant right down the street. Will definitely stop here next year on our return trip from FL. Thank you Heidi. Cynthia & John.". . . (9/30/19) - "Highly recommend Knightly Farm. We had a wonderful experience! My gelding loved it there. Heidi, the owner, is wonderful and genuinely cares about your horse. If you are near the Camden area, you must stay there!". . . (1/2/21) - "Heidi was a wonderful horse hotel hostess! We arrived late evening in the middle of a rain storm. She had the stall all ready for us and was beyond sweet. She was genuinely interested in our horse and I felt completely at ease leaving him with her overnight. We will be stopping again on our way back home! Highly recommend her facility! Hotel was only 4 miles down road."

I highly recommend this faclity.". . .(2/29/08) - "A beautiful clean facility. We knew we were in good hands when we pulled up and were greeted by Jack on his golf cart sitting with 3 beautiful Aussies.

Thank you again Jack for your hospitality, hope to see you again next year.". . . (11/21/10) - "Super place for a stopover!

Comments: (2/8/21) - "Dawn White, and family, were so supportive to our needs. Their facility ended up being our 'home away from home' for a much longer period than anticipated. The facilities are great. We were able to connect to shore power for our horse trailer, and connect to sewage. That made life simpler for us. In addition, our horse trailer was parked in close proximity to the stalls, so we could readily check on our horses. During the day, we were able to easily and safely let the horses out to pasture. Dawn and her husband, Dave, were most accommodating to our needs and we are forever grateful to them for offering their place as a Horse Motel."

Comments: (11/12/16) - "Highly recommend. Excellent facility; very friendly and accommodating owners.". . . (1/6/17) - "Lisa Lutz, the owner, was away for the day but we were met by her mother who was very helpful and welcoming. A very delightful lady. Our horse was provided with a large, clean, dry, well bedded stall. Unfortunately, he had no turn out but we were able to walk him and let him get some exercise before we left for Santee, about 7 miles away, to our accommodations for the night. The entire farm was well kept and our horse was not in contact with any other animals during his stay. We hope to use these accommodations on our way north in April.". . . (5/2/17) - "Lisa and Carol went above and beyond to help me out when I broke down near by them. It was incredibly stressful as I was traveling on my own from FL with 2 youngsters and my GP horse. I can honestly say I don't know what I would have done without their help. Highly recommend.". . . (6/11/17) - "Good place, good people; our horses loved it. Would definitely stay there again.". . . (8/11/18) - "Very clean, cool and large stalls. Well bedded with fresh water and fans ready. Very impressed with the facility and, hopefully, will be able to use this beautiful farm as a resting place again! Only downfall would be that I had to stay at a hotel but I felt so safe with my horses there I wasn't worried about doing hourly checks.". . . (9/18/18) - "Plenty of room and great paddocks for the horses. Great layover spot!". . . (10/23/18) - "Very well maintained facilities; owners on-site for security and to ensure horses are safe and happy. Smokeaway Farm and Horse Motel in Santee, SC is the half-way point between Northern Virginia and Central Florida--I very highly recommend this as a stop-over for everyone travelling through with horses!". . . (12/5/18) - "Really lovely place and people.". . . (12/13/19) - "Rented a paddock for the night for 2 horses, plenty of room for them to stretch and roll. Location was convenient to I-95 and lodging/food.". . . (1/12/21) - Administrator's Comments: A recent overnight guest at this facility was unhappy with her stay. After communicating with both parties, the administrator feels that an initial breakdown in communications may have led to a tense situation upon the guest's arrival. During the discussion, both sides were unhappy with the other. As this web site recommends, if we all communicate, cooperate, and show respect for one another, the horse motel industry can be a pleasant experience for all concerned.". . . (8/8/21) - "Lisa was there to greet us, I got exactly what I requested. Facilities were clean, spacious. Lisa was very attentive to my animals well being, contacting me when she observed behavior that was questionable re: my donkey. Turned out to be normal behavior for my Jenny. Would recommend and stay there again."

Comments: (2/24/20) - "I would recommend Stealth Horse Farm to anyone with their horses and in need a layover spot. Melody was wonderful. I arrived about 1:00 and found Melody and her cat waiting for me at the end of the driveway so I wouldn't miss the turn in the dark. Everything was ready for my horse and me. I really appreciate Melody's knowledge of what is required for the tired and weary horse and human. Her rates are very reasonable for the care and attention we received. I will definitely be staying at Stealth Horse Farm on my trips between Maine and Alabama. Thanks Melody. You're the BEST!!". . . (3/5/20) - "Very accommodating hotel, great for the horse. I am a shipper and it is very hard to find decent, safe places. It is very hard to find a hotel that is suitable for horses in this area of SC. Definitely on my list to return to.". . . (7/28/20) - "Here is a very nice, quiet, cozy place if you are crossing through I-81 and need to rest. Very friendly and great accommodations. Will definitely be stopping by again.". . . (1/18/21) - "This horse hotel is such a gem! It’s a little off the highway but very worth it!!! The stalls are very clean, super bedded and Melody was super helping in getting everyone settled in. Would denitely stay again , very easy in and out as well!! Thank you!"
