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.)
(5/6/21) - "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!". . . (11/4/21) - "I stayed overnight at Goose Creek Farm this past October on my way to Tennessee. We had 2 horses and 2 Living Quarters. Carl, the owner, was there to help us out, showed us where to park our trailers etc. Very nice and quiet location. Our horses had a choice of grass paddocks/pastures or very large stalls. We wanted the paddocks. Water troughs were clean and water fresh. Level parking for our trailers. Easy in and easy out. I would highly recommend this farm.". . . (11/14/21) - "This past week was my fifth stay at this wonderful layover on my trips to northern TN and Illinois. Carl always meets me at the entrance when I arrive and watches for traffic when I leave. The round pen is always clean and available for my mule to stretch her legs while I get the trailer hooked up and feed into the stall. He always has fresh, clean water and bedding in the stall and wheelbarrow with manure fork ready so I can clean out the trailer. I usually arrive before sunset but have heard rigs come in late at night. Carl is very accommodating. I’ll continue to stay here anytime I travel along I-81.". . . (12/15/21) - "We had a great experience with our one-night stay at Goose Creek. The facilities are first rate (and as advertised), the farm is pretty accessible from I-81, and Carl's directions were very helpful. We travel with two walking horses in a two-horse trailer and the parking facility could have easily facilitated a much bigger trailer. Carl is a great host, and we will stop again on our next trip through the area.". . . (12/30/21) - "Beautiful views. Nicest owner. Clean and perfect for us. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home and facility!". . . (6/18/22) - "Owner was great; met us at the gate. Beautiful pasture. 10 minutes off I-81.". . . (7/15/22) - "Goose Creek Farm was a wonderful layover facility. Close to I-81, plenty of room for truck and trailer to turn around, nice big stalls with mats, small and large grass paddocks, Carl was very friendly and welcoming. A+++". . . (7/19/22) - "Beautiful facility and very kind host. Exceptionally clean and well maintained.". . . (8/11/22) - "Southern hospitality at it's best! Carl is a friendly and kind gentleman who helped make my overnight stay with my 12 year old daughter and our 4 ponies relaxing and peaceful. The stalls were quite large, safe and well-appointed. I loved the fact that I had use of a grass round pen, which really helped in reducing the stress of traveling for my animals by allowing them to graze safely. Having the ability to hook-up to electric rather than staying at a hotel made the process of long distance horse travel even easier. I highly recommend this quaint little gem and I will definitely be staying here again!". . . (11/19/22) - "The facilities were absolutely gorgeous! What a beautiful place to wake up in. Carl was incredibly gracious and kind and fun to talk to! I would highly suggest his facility."

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! No hesitiation about staying there again, IN FACT we just scheduled another stay for next month! Thanks again Mike & Vicki.". . . (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.". . . (11/4/21) 0- "Stayed at Lazy Acres Farm on my way back from Tennessee. We had 2 horses and 2 Living Quarters. The horses were able to go out in a grass pasture and then were brought in to stalls at night. Stalls were clean. The owners were very helpful. The barn has a bathroom and a shower - didn't use due to availability of our own bathrooms. Level areas for Living Quarters and easy access to Rte. 81. Quiet farm with nice views. Also has cabins for rent but didn't use so won't review. Has one 30 amp outlet and then the rest are regular outlets so bring an adapter.". . . (8/22/22) - "This place was my first experience in needing to travel the distance that we did and was our first stop. They were great and very accommodating to a nervous first-time traveler. Thanks 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."

(4/27/22) - "Clean, large, safe stalls with fresh water and bedding. Ike was very helpful and fixed my broken trailer upper door for me without my asking. I was able to have a good night's sleep in my trailer on level ground. Ike also offered a clean, full bathroom with shower. The area is hilly - the facility has nice views of the mountain ridges.. . . (4/30/22) - "Ike Essick is a wonderful horseman, very professional and friendly. Great advice, great facility, our stay could not have been more perfect. Our horse was very much at ease there and well cared for!! Immaculate facility, we would recommend this stop for anyone who is looking for quality and security during their travels!". . . (6/13/22) - "Excellent overnight stay. Ike is extremely helpful and available. Easy to get to right off the interstate. Clean with extra large stalls. Small and large paddock available for turnout. We were able to plug in our trailer and sleep in our living quarters on site. Easy turn around for a large trailer. Bathroom with shower was super clean and stocked with towels and toiletries. Would definitely stay here again when passing this way.". . . (8/25/22) - "I relocated from Ohio to South Carolina with my 24 year old gelding and my 8 year old mare. I wanted to split the trip up for them since they hadn't been hauled in a long time & we wanted a break from driving. While I set the appointment tentatively while I researched different routes. Ike was a huge asset and I decided then and there I didn't care if it was the longer route, I was staying there. He was so accommodating. It was rainy so he had me back into the shavings bay and we unloaded in there. He had a location for me to park the trailer overnight. The stalls were HUGE and amazing. I was kind of sad not to be staying. Every animal on the place was indeed cared for and healthy. The barn is immaculate as well as the grounds. He helped me feed and he already had fresh water in the stalls and checked on them after I left. I can't say enough about how relaxed I was leaving my prized ponies in his care. In the morning when I came to head out he had them already fed and helped me while I wrapped their legs and load them up. I would not hesitate using these facilities again!!!!! Ike was great and took time to talk with me & he was the perfect host. Thank you so much for taking a huge stress off my shoulders.". . . (9/24/22) - "What a beautiful paradise! Such a beautiful view! Top notch facility with a lounge for watching TV and a stocked refrigerator with drinks of all kinds, including beer and a drawer FULL of snacks! Also, a full clean modern bathroom. And don't miss the grand tour of the beautiful living quarters of the best host ever, Ike Essick, complete with a collection of mounts from all over the globe. Incredible. Your horse will never be more comfortable than in these spacious 12' x 16' safe, well-maintained stalls.". . . (10/2/22) - "The host is awesome! He opens his heart and home to you. The facility has huge stalls, turn out, great views, and best of all, I felt safe and welcomed there. Would highly recommend Ridgeway Stables if you need a place to lay over.". . . (10/3/22) - "This is a great facility. Ike was there upon our arrival. Helped everyone park their rigs, had stalls bedded and water filled. Stalls are huge, 12' x 16', which is nice for horses that have been cramped in a trailer for several hours. Very nice that they can stretch their legs. It was rainy and cold when we arrived. He had the barn all closed up so our horses would be nice and warm. I would highly recommend this facility for a lay over.". . . (11/5/22) - "Awesomeness. Couldn’t have been any nicer. Barn was very clean, felt safe. Close to highway, food, and Tractor Supply. Definitely on track for return trip. 🐴"

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. Stalls were big end clean for a 16/17 hand horse to feel comfortable to be able to roll. Enough room for my trailer. I know when ever I’m in need of a place to stay on my trips I will definitely go back. Great place and peaceful. Highly recommended.". . .

Comments: (10/30/21) - "Deanna was welcoming and helpful without being a "mother hen". We loved her positive, warm attitude toward dogs, humans, and the equines. Stalls were large, clean, bedded, and buckets disinfected. In the morning Deanna was helpful and patient with loading a reluctant pony. She even provided an air compressor for the trailer tires! Deanna is a thorough equine professional who I recommend highly when you need a comfortable layover."
