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.)
(5/20/20) - "I HIGHLY suggest a stay at this beautiful farm. We arrived around 10:00PM and the owner was standing at the end of his drive, with a flashlight to guide us in. He directed us clearly to where we were parking our 38' trailer and told us where our horses would stay. Fresh, clean water awaited my horse and a muck fork and wheelbarrow awaited us. Mr. Richarson is a fantastic host to a beautiful farm. He even woke very early to help us depart. We are thankful to have found such a warm, inviting farm. Thank you!". . . (5/24/20) - "We have used Goose Creek as a stopover several times while transporting horses during long-distance moves. This last trip was extremely hectic due to bad weather, but we knew Goose Creek had everything we would need for a restful evening for our horses, dogs, kids, and us. Parking for both rigs we were pulling was more than sufficient. I am an amateur driver of a 35-foot, four horse Lakota with living quarters, and I was able to easily pull into the boarding facility and back it out the next morning, with help from Mr Richardson, the owner. He is very customer-service oriented, and is willing to go the extra mile to ensure his guests have everything they need. He even had an equine veterinarian ready for me last year when I was hauling a horse with potential medical issues. I usually use the paddock for my horses to stretch their legs and graze after the long ride, but this last visit included an overnight storm. I was able to move my three horses in the night from the paddock to very nice, clean and safe stalls for shelter. I will always use Goose Creek for overnight stays whenever I can schedule my route through Bristol, VA.". . . (10/22/20) - "We arrived at Carl Richardson's farm (Goose Creek Farm )about four in the afternoon. He was standing in the road to help us get in the driveway; very accommodating. My rig is 66 feet long and I had no problem. The farm is very well kept, super clean, and he is a horse person that knows what he’s doing. We travel about 10,000 miles per year competing in the sport of combined driving. This was our second visit to Carl's farm and I can tell you, it is first class. Don’t hesitate to overnight here. Bus and Nifty Hamilton. Driving. Makati Design.". . . (5/3/21) - "Thankful to have found Goose Creek Farm on my trip from FL to PA. Carl met me at the gate and was very welcoming. The stalls were bedded with fresh shavings, had 2 buckets of water, and were very safe. My horses came out the next morning well-rested and relaxed. I will be returning in the future!". . . (5/6/21) - "This was a great place! Owner was wonderful and knowledgeable of horses. I would definitely recommend stopping here. It’s beautiful! I will 100% use this place again if I need to stop in VA!!!". . . (7/7/21) - "Carl was an amazing host, even when we arrived at a later time than we expected. He was prepared and very thorough. The farm is easily accessible, very well maintained and safe. The stalls were ready when we arrived with fresh bedding and clean, fresh water buckets. Carl had the front gate unlocked and open when we arrived in the morning to pick up. If you need a safe, clean, secure facility when traveling through Southwestern Virginia, Goose Creek is the place to stay!". . . (7/14/21) - "Such an amazing place and system to keep it as natural as possible. Owner was beyond friendly, helpful and beyond accommodating for my two horses that loved it so much they weren’t ready to leave, either. Our story is a mess but people and places like this make the crazy adventure totally worth the ride.". . . (8/17/21) - "Carl was wonderful, the farm was beautiful, very easy to get in and out, the directions made it super easy to find. I felt very comfortable leaving my Girl there. slept like a baby because of Carl. I just knew she was in great hands after meeting him. 10 stars for Goose Creek Farm.". . . (8/19/21) - "What a great experience! We were first timers and a little nervous about how our horse would react. Carl was waiting for us and helped ease the transition. He is very experienced and knowledgeable and extremely accommodating. We felt very comfortable and will definitely use his services again!"

Comments: (9/6/12) - "What a pleasure to place our horses in the care of Kathlyn for the night. Everything was more then we had expected. Clean, spacious, and safe for both horses and our equipment. The farm is very close to I-95 with overnight lodging very close by. Kathlyn, was in the barn to greet us and made us feel like one of the family. We will definitely stay at Redfield Farms again in our travels from Vermont to Florida. Thank you Kathlyn for taking such good care of our horses and us. Jake and King, Beligan 2300 lb.+ pulling horses say thank you for the hay and the treats of fresh carrots was much appreciated.". . . (12/25/13) - "I had the best experience staying overnight on my trip from Ocala to Boston! We traveled with 2 rigs and came in much later then we hoped. The owners were very nice and helpful; the stalls were big and clean. I will absolutely love to stay again on my way back to Ocala this winter ! Thank you for your great hospitality!". . . (4/6/14) - "These guys were great, meeting us late at night to help unload. Kept our stallion and 3 other horses safe and sound. We stayed last year on the way home to Vermont from Florida and just arranged to stay over next week again. Make this your half way stop!". . . (6/4/14) - "Nicest over night stabling I've ever experienced. Stalls were large clean, neat, and safe. Turnout was well fenced and safe. The owners were very helpful and made the experience as easy as possible. I had a trailer issue and Kathryn and Chuck helped me get service. They stored my trailer until all the parts could be collected and the trailer repaired.". . . (8/8/15) - "Very convenient to I-95. Owners were very accommodating for all of our needs. The facility is extremely clean. I highly recommend Red Field Farm.". . . (8/13/15) - "The Redfield Farm was by far the friendliest overnight stable we stayed at. They greeted us as we arrived at 9 pm . They had a stall ready. As we were attending to our tired Warmblood Dennis, the owner, was cleaning out our trailer for us. Wonderful, clean, safe facility.". . . (1/11/16) - "Very helpful people. Best place I have ever stayed over with horses.". . . (10/7/16) - "Highly recommend. Great people. Great facility.". . . (12/2/19) - "Extremely satisfied with our stay. The barn and stalls are very clean and Chuck was great to deal with. Great place to stop on our way back from Florida.". . . (4/4/19) - "This is a 10++++horse hotel. Great people, wonderful facility. Makes the trip to and from FL very easy. Thank you!!!!". . . (12/3/19) - "These facilities are stunning. The host, Chuck, was so gracious and made my Frosty so completely comfortable. I will be back anytime I travel and highly recommend this horse hotel! Thanks for giving us such great care. Mari. Nov. 30-Dec. 3.". . . (10/7/20) - "Redfield Farm is very nice. I prefer a paddock/pasture over a stall, which they provided with no problem. The farm is very easily accessed from either I-95 S or N. I’ll be stopping again! Heather."

Comments: (10/20/04) - "Thanks for a great time! Clean barn and turnout area. Hotels and food were within 5 min. drive. May I suggest a bed & breakfast? I think your response would be great! Highly recommended facility.". . .(12/4/04) - "Great place - I've arrived at all hours of the morning and they have been very welcoming.". . .(10/10/05) - "Mike & Vicki are very friendly and extremely knowledgable about horses. I was amazed at the level of care they provided for our 'girls' during our relocation from California to the Richmond, VA area. I highly recommend this facility!". . .(12/9/05) - "Great people, they checked on my nervous horse several times during the night and moved him to the round pen once it was clear he wasn't happy in the stall. Clean and safe. Highly recommend for anyone traveling.". . .(12/13/05) - "One of my horses was injured during the few hours of turnout and they were very, very helpful in getting him to cross ties (very lame) and calling the vet and offering for me to stay as long as I needed.". . .(10/15/06) - "{The owners} were wonderful hosts and extremely accommodating.". . . (10/30/08) - "We stayed w/Mike & Vicki last year on Christmas week (Dec 22nd) and our experience was beyond belief. A FIRST CLASS operation and people who run it!

(11/5/09) - "A Super overnight stop, Mike and Vickie are very accommodating. We've stayed many times, it's easy to get to and always great.". . . . . . (10/23/16) - " We were thrilled with our stay at Rockin K while on route from Ontario to Florida! Vicki and Mike were so awesome and helpful. We stayed in our trailer so we really enjoyed the wonderful "people" space with BBQ, tables and western decor. It was almost like a private outdoor living room. A very welcome relax after a couple of days on the road. The horse accommodations were fantastic with a spacious stall and a large outdoor ring where my mare could run and stretch her legs after a long day in the trailer. We have stayed at many horse motels over the last few years and Rockin K will now be one of our faves. Thanks again Vicki and Mike!". . . .(10/24/16) - "Couldn't say enough! Hospitality was wonderful! Very clean and highly recommend. We arrived around 9 p.m. and mike helped us get things going and made us feel at home! Vicki kept in touch with me on arriving! Thankyou again!!!"

Comments: (2/19/14) - "We stayed an extra day because we felt so comfortable here! They had a great hook up for the RV right next to the covered outdoor riding ring and the barn was also very close so my horse was never far from my sight. When we decided to stay an extra day, the owners gave a large acre plus pasture to let my horse relax and enjoy some leg stretching frolicking. We will absolutely call on them again when we travel through VA!". . . (4/2/14) - "Amanda and her husband were awesome! Loved the farm and you cannot find nicer, kinder, more helpful people!". . . (5/31/14) - "The cabin and horse facilities were wonderful. Amanda and David were very accommodating. Very convenient and we will definitely stay there again.". . . (10/24/14) - "I stayed here twice and the facilities were exceptional. The hosts were both friendly and helpful. My horse was happy in the lovely, clean stall that was ready for him and he enjoyed turnout in the covered arena and also in a grass paddock. There was ample room for a big rig. The apartment was immaculate and had every convenience. I will definitely stay here again if I am in the area.". . . (10/16/15) - "Wonderful facility and Amanda & Dave are terrific hosts. Loved our layover at Lazy Acres and plan to make it our destination next year. My horse was so comfortable and relaxed there. Great experience!". . . (10/19/17) - "Everything was as advertised, host was friendly and helpful. Stalls were large, safe, bedded, and water in stalls. Hay was available. They let us use their arena to turn out horses to run around. Parking was level and easy in and out for 38' trailer. Truck Stop nearby to fuel up before continuing. Would stay again.". . . (3/13/18) - "Amanda and David are amazing and are always very helpful when we are driving by. We use them every time on our way to and from Florida. We have used many layovers and this is the best by far.". . . (4/15/18) - "Lazy Acres exceeded all expectations. The setting is beautiful and relaxing. We loved the cozy cabin which was within walking distance from the barn. The stalls were safe, spacious and ready upon arrival. Our ponies were so happy here. We have already booked our next stay! Thank you again, David and Amanda!". . . (2/23/20) - "I have utilized this farm as a layover twice in the past year. David greets us on arrival every visit. The facility is always clean and tidy. Being very particular on care of my horses, I've been very pleased and sleep well the nights they are in David's care.". . . (8/8/21) - "Excellent in every way. Would recommend and definitely stay there again."

Comments: (8/24/16) - I stayed here in April, sorry this is so late. I can not say enough for staying at this place. What a wonderful host; arrived very late and we were greeted as soon as we drove in, all exterior lights on. Stall was huge and barn is very airy. Beautiful, comfortable studio to stay in. The quiche was an unexpected BONUS! Thank You."

(11/1/20) - "This was the Taj Mahal of horse motels for us and our horse. What a welcoming stop. Located at the top of a hill with spectacular view. Ike was a welcoming host and a wealth of information on rigs, horse show travel, and horses. There was a warm lounge room with drinks in the frig, TV and lounge chairs. The clean bathroom, hot, clean shower, shampoo with fluffy towels. Our horse enjoyed a clean, extra large, secure stall with shavings and access to a small paddock. Really!!!". . . (11/8/20) - "The facilities were wonderful. The stalls were massive and prepared upon our arrival. I was pleasantly surprised to have a bathroom with a shower easily accessible! Ike was so kind and accommodating. He even met us on our way to the barn to make sure we didn’t get lost in the dark. 5/5 stars, we will be back.". . . (12/3/20) - "Ike knows a tremendous amount about horses. Very helpful, very friendly, very alert to what is happening with the horse. We are grateful to have Ike on our travel route.". . . (12/13/20) - "Had the best time meeting Ike. He's the real deal! Knows his horses and has an awesome facility with grass turnout available to the stall. My horse loved it. We had a completely peaceful night knowing our horse was safe and cared for. You couldn't find a better place to stop than Ike's. He will help you anyway he can and you'll have fun while he does it. I look forward to a chance to see him again.". . . (3/6/21) - "What a wonderful man that has a super clean facility. The stalls are huge and our horses were so happy to have a stall big enough to roll in. Ike had a tv area with beverages and snacks. He also had a shower and bathroom available, too. This is an absolute must stay if you are in the area!". . . (3/6/21) - "Ike was a fantastic host and the facility was amazing.12' x 16' stalls that spoiled our horses. We could not have asked for a better experience.". . . (3/25/21) - "Fantastic facility. Huge roomy stalls, everything clean, tidy and safe. The owner is friendly and helpful and the view of the countryside is spectacular. Plan to stay at Ridgeway again.". . . (5/26/21) - "I plan to go back.". . . (5/26/21) - "My 2 friends and I stayed here on our way to Gettysburg and were just blown away. Absolutely beautiful place! Ike met us off the interstate and led us up and made sure we were completely taken care of and comfortable. Our horses too. Very sweet man and we will definitely stay here again!". . . (5/26/21) - "Highly recommend. Huge safe stalls and a beautiful view. Ike was wonderful and made sure we had everything we needed.". . . (6/6/21) - "Nice facility. Ike was super accommodating.". . . (9/14/21) - "We (us and our horse) had an excellent stay at Rideway Belgians. Ike was a wonderful host and met us at TSC to show us the way to his farm. The farm is very close to I-81 so super convenient. He had a large stall and grassy paddock ready when we arrived. Ike's facilities are clean and well taken care of. We were able to get our large trailer turned around easily and we plugged in for the night and stayed in our LQ. Ike had a bathroom with shower and a fridge with drinks and snacks available for our use. Ike was a fantastic host, super friendly, and we really enjoyed our stay (even if only for one night)! Highly recommend.". . . (9/15/21) - "This was a wonderful place to stay while traveling with our horses. Ike was the perfect host. He met us at the Tractor Supply and we followed him to his farm. One mile off of 81 - perfect. The views there are beautiful. It was clean and comfortable. Our horses loved the stall/paddock combination; it gave them a chance to move around.". . . (9/27/21) - "What a hidden gem! Upon arrival, Ike Essick, greeted us with his warm smile and friendly demeanor. He right away asked if our horse would be more comfortable in a stall or stall with paddock. Since our horse needed to stretch his legs, we chose the latter. As the name implies, Mr Essick’s faciliyy is placed on a grassy ridge overlooking valleys to the east and west. The facility is close to amenities such as lodging, restaurants, shopping, and gas station of which we took advantage during our stay. We ourselves stayed onsite during our short visit, sleeping in a tent on a grassy patch underneath the stars. We felt very safe and welcomed. Mr. Essick checked up on us before bed and in the morning before we departed to make sure any questions we had were answered and that we had everything we needed. Overall, a very lovely experience for both human and horse. If we are ever back in the area we will definitely be staying at Ridgeway Belgians.". . . (10/10/21) - "Absolutely beautiful large, safe stalls. Ike was so friendly, welcoming, and informative. He met us in town so we wouldn't get lost. It's so close to the interstate and places to eat. Room to turn around and park overnight. Ike is very knowledgeable about horses and I was comfortable leaving my horse there and going into town. He is great and the facility is top notch!! Really loved it and will stay again on my way through or when riding at Mount Roger's or Hungry Mother."

Comments: (5/24/20) - "Kate and her family were very accommodating and welcoming. Due to the virus outbreak, she took extra precautions to make sure we were safe (we stayed in their comfortable home). My horse was very happy, he had other horses he could see and a huge well-bedded stall attached to his own, very clean, private paddock. As an added bonus, Kate cooked dinner for us and we had fresh veggies from her garden that she sent home with us. The property is beautiful and easy to find, our trip north used a different route (for us) 29 and 15, which was quieter than the traffic on 95 or 81, but didn’t seem to take any longer. TuckerBerry Farm will definitely be our layover on our north/south journey from now on.". . . (5/25/20) - "Kate and her mom were wonderful. They were there when we arrived. We were there during Covid 2020. Kate and her mother had the stalls ready and water buckets full so we didn’t have to touch anything. She also brought her front loader to the back of my trailer so I could clean it out. Hooking up my living quarters horse trailer was easy. Thank you for the hospitality.". . . (9/22/20) - "What a great find for two of our horses we were transporting.. 5 stars! Super friendly host."

Comments: (3/18/16) - "Great place. Safe barn, big stalls; bright and open. I was even given turnout if needed. Stopped on our way back from Florida heading to New England. I highly recommend Hidden Meadows as a stop over.". . . (5/19/17) - "Absolutely wonderful!!! My 2 horses stayed there on our way back from FL to NY on 5/10/17. Mary Beth and her husband, Jeff, were fantastic! The facility was gorgeous and the accommodations for my horses were perfect!". . . (3/31/19)- "This was a great place to overnight on our way back from Florida. Mary Beth and Jeff were easy to reach and met us at the barn when we arrived. There was an easy turnaround for the trailer. The stalls were large, well bedded and had fresh water ready. Mary Beth did night check and let us know the next am how much our horses dank, etc. They also had 24 hour camera monitoring. We were hesitant at first because it was a little further off the highway than we hoped. However, it was an easy drive and well worth the short detour. There were lots of restaurants and hotels at the exit as well. They also offered a room at the house if we were interested. I highly recommend them. . . (7/7/20) - "This place is awesome. Mary Beth was great with communication and extremely attentive even though we arrived at 3 am. The facility and service were wonderful. Stalls were clean, well-bedded, airy, and very large. There was electric hookup for our LQ trailer. We will definitely layover there again in the future."

Beautiful area and my horses and I love the chickens! Makes us feel right at home.". . . (5/17/17) - "Sandra and her husband went above and beyond to get me settled after a long hot (97 deg) day of travel from FL-VA. Nice cement block 12' x 12' matted stalls with fans. One mile cement drive at the end, plenty of room to turn around. THX for the eggs!". . . (3/11/18) - "Sandra and Larry are the BEST horse hotel hosts around. I can not say enough about their facility and hospitality. This is our 4th year doing a layover at their facility on our way to South Carolina. If you need a place to put your horse up for the night I couldn’t suggest this place more highly. Very easily located to the highway, hotels and dining. Our 50 ft. rig can get in and out easily.". . . (5/31/18) - "A perfect stay!! Very clean, beautiful ranch with great hosts! Very convenient to highway 81- We would like to stay here again. Thank you Sandra.". . . (9/27/18) - "I had a great layover at this place. The owners were super nice and helpful.
