Comments: (5/4/16) - "The Boise Stage Stop provides a convenient place to allow my horse to rest. There are 4 corrals to choose from and a large riding arena. There are clean showers, a nice restaurant and fully stocked C-store on site. Lots of parking, Rv dump and water supply close to the corrals. This is great to have right off the freeway."

Comments: (5/28/09) - "We boarded our horse with this horse hotel on 5/18/2009. Jeff and Terry were more than cordial and very accommodating. Our horse was in a nice size paddock with loafing shed and there were several other horses on the premises so our mare had lots of company. We paid $10 for the night and this was a bargain for such a nice boarding facility. We would recommend this horse hotel to anyone.". . . (8/19/09) - "Jeff was so very helpful as we arrived. As we were visiting family in the area, we enjoyed a ride in their covered arena. We came and went knowing that the horses were in good care. Their "digs" included a large outside pen and covered area, thankfully since it rained. My husband left his spurs and Terry and Jeff cheerfully offered to mail them to our home. Very pleasant stay!". . . (9/21/09) - "We were very impressed with their operation; with we could have stayed longer. Definitely will stay again next year when we make our annual trek to Montana.". . . (7/1/10) - "Comfortable, clean and cozy. What a great place for you and your horse to get a good night's rest.". . . (10/3/17) - "Very friendly and helpful."

(6/15/07) - "Great place so stay, easy to get to off main Highway. Lots of room for a big truck and trailer. (we have a Freightliner with 40í trailer).

I higly recommend her ranch to everyone traveling through Idaho.". . .(8/3/08) - "We called last minute and late in the evening and Carol had the stalls all ready for us as we arrived. We also stayed at her bed and breakfast and enjoyed it very much. It was very convenient." . .(8/12/08) - "Immaculate horse facility with a beautiful, clean and very well decorated B&B. I would give this place my highest recommendation.". . .(12-9-08) - "Carol was kind and accommodating for our family including my wheelchair-bound father in law. She even made us dinner for an extra charge at our request (it was good-thanks again!). Our horses liked the arena turn out and the barn. The house accommodations were LOVELY, you can tell how much time she took to make it special. Directions were good, ask to go the long way if you have a manual transmission...Thanks Carol and your friendly, dog, crew for an excellent first stop heading east from WA to SC!". . . (6/29/09) - "Carol is a great host, she gave great directions over the phone. We travel with 2 semi trucks and 8 very large draft horses which the facility easily accommodated. Carol checked on our horses and freshened their water throughout the evenig. A very clean, well managed facility with a thoughtful, dedicated owner. We would definitely stay again.". . . (9/21/09) - "Facilities were excellent and Carol is a gracious host. We stayed at her B&B on the property and were very pleased.". . . (11/18/09) - "Carol has a very nice facility. Our mare had a good place to spend the night and my wife and I stayed in Carols Bed and Breakfast. It was nicer and more convenient than any hotel.". . . (11/21/09) -"I have overnighted at Carol's 3 times now (2007 and 2009) and have always had a great experience. I have AQHA show horses and this facility works great for them. Nice large bedded stalls, large fresh water tubs, good ventilation, but able to close doors to maintain temperature. Easy in and out for big rigs. Carol has always been courteous, greeted us, and is flexible. (sometimes we pull in late) Would definately recommend her facility.". . . (7/31/10) - "Highly recommend Carol's place. We will use it again in the future. Would recommend it to anyone that is traveling through this part of Idaho and is in need of an overnight layup!". . . (12/1/10) - "Arrived far after bedtime, Carol had everything ready for the horses after their long day.". . . (6/14/11) - "We stopped overnight in Spring 2010; Carol was very welcoming and gracious.

(7/31/11) - "This was a great place to stay and keep our horses overnight while we were looking at other things in the area. Comfortable and roomy pens for the horses and relaxing atmosphere.". . . (2/20/14) - ". . . We stayed overnight at Carol's on our way from Calgary, Alberta Canada heading to Reno for a horse show with our two horses. Carol had everything ready for us when we arrived--and we were quite late . The horse barn was spotless and well prepared. We utilized the Bed and Breakfast service Carol offers and it was absolutely wonderful. I would highly recommend Carol's place to anyone travelling through Idaho.". . .

(9/24/18) - "We broke down and needed last minute accommodations. The stalls were freshly bedded with fresh clean water and gates open upon our late night arrival. Very safe, well maintained stalls, great entry and parking lot for turning around our 4 horse living quarters trailer. Plus a camper hookup meant we could sleep right outside our stalls and keep an eye on our horses. Well lit for loading and unloading. Would absolutely stay here again!"

Comments: (12/19/17) - "Hosts were excellent and super accommodating, even turned my trailer around for me as I came in late in the dark and had a stressful day of traveling. Dogs were able to run around loose and horses were able to socialize with the resident herd over the fence. Do not use the gps marker; it will take you past the driveway and it is not easy to turn around! Also, no cell service once you pass. Would recommend calling ahead as soon as you turn onto their road.". . . (7/31/18) - "Not only was Jennie awake to help me pull in to the correct driveway (at 11 pm), she helped me with unloading the horse. She asked if I needed anything before we both turned in. I felt like I was catching up with an old friend by the time I left. I will definitely be back. Thank you Jennie!!!!!". . . (9/15/18) - "Larry & Jenny Housley make Horseman Haven Ranch a destination overnight spot. Simply THE BEST! I will stop at Horseman Haven Ranch anytime Iím within 100 Miles. Itís that good. Thank you for your care and hospitality toward our horse and his humans!"

Comments: (3/19/18) - "This Ranch is the best layover we have ever had on the road. Risa and Adam are super. The facility and camp hookups were immaculate. We travel often and wish every stopover was this good. Check out the Sockeye Brewery and Grill for a night off of camping. The facility is close to I-84 and convenient to anything you may need. My horses had so much fun galloping around the pasture after a day of hauling!" . . . (3/19/18) - "Our horse was kept in a large corral with a covered area and provided clean water and hay. The horse corrals/stalls were immaculately clean and easy to access. Because we stayed for 4 days, we stayed in a small apartment on the grounds rather than a single room which was also available. The people accommodation was also very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay at Laughing Horse, thought the price was reasonable and plan to stay there again when we are in the area!". . . (3/20/18) - "We rented the room and were pleased to find it as advertised. Property and driveway is set up well for easy access for turning trailers around as well as for loading/unloading. Host was very friendly and accommodating. I will definitely stay with this host whenever I am in town.". . . (3/23/18) - "What a gem! Large pasture for travel weary horses. They frolicked and ran and rolled and ran and whinnied their pleasure. Risa cared for them for 4 days while we visited friends. Beautiful spot!! Easy off the freeway, yet out in the country with beautiful views & quiet. Most perfect spot in our thousands of miles journeys. Worth more than the reasonable price! Would love to have taken advantage of the human accommodations. Next time. Wonderful people. Wonderful spot.". . . (4/16/18) - "My experience staying here with 5 horses was wonderful. Easy in and out and they have tons of space to pull in a large rig and the horse stalls were very spacious. The human accommodations were clean and well kept. I am very impressed with the service amd will definitely be stopping in again.". . . (9/14/18) - "Risa found the proper plug when neither of us had an adapter for my trailer. It was hot and Risa wanted to make sure I was comfortable. She kept the horse comfortable in a pasture. Great care!"

Comments: (8/6/12) - "Slightly off the beaten path, but well worth it. Lovely facility, very accommodating and pleasant; horses loved it there!". . . (5/13/15) - "The hosts were wonderful to us and our horses. It was a good location, easy to find, and close to many services in nearby Nampa/Boise.". . . (6/5/16) - "Matt and Alayne were great hosts! They offered places to trail ride and options for amenities during our stay. We were lucky to enjoy the in-ground pool on a 100 degree day, and we went to a horse competition to watch them ride. Driving in to town for shopping needs was just a short drive. We want to go back!". . . (8/17/16) - "It was hot hot hot when I boarded my horses there but the mare hotel setup had a nice breeze and shade with automatic waterers in each run. Very spacious. There is a creek with rushing water between the house and the horse facilities and it makes it seem cooler and the sound was wonderful. It was a 20 minute or so drive from the Caldwell rodeo grounds but it was worth it for the sake of the horses. Will definitely board here again."

Comments: (4/14/13) - "Nice place, horses have room to stretch. Patty let us use her two round pens for our 4 Girls. She also offered us a nice grassy pasture. There is a nice indoor arena for use and Patty let us use her office and restroom. It's not far from town. Thank you Patty for letting us take a break at your place.". . . (8/11/13) - "This was a great experience. We rolled in after midnight but Patty was right there to sign us in. I would highly recommend Otter Ranch Stables to anyone hauling long distance and wanting to give their horses a break. Thanks again Greg and Patty.". . . (7/27/14) - "Took me in last moment when I had trailer problems east of Boise. They waited up for me but didn't charge me a late fee. Great directions, nice stalls,very clean, etc. New owners who are knocking themselves out to make your stay comfortable Highly recommend.". . . (11/13/14) - "Large stall with large run, good fencing. Owners were great, very helpful. We arrived and turned our horses out in the arena but they had plenty of room to trot around in the runs attached to the stalls as well. Highly recommend. Stalls fully matted with rubber.". . . (7/7/15) - "We arrived late after a flat tire on our horse trailer. The hosts were extremely understanding and waiting for us when we arrived. Clean facilities with shelter and runs for the horses to stretch their legs. Would recommend.". . . (9/8/15) - "This was our second time to stay in one summer. John and Sharman are very nice hosts (as are their goats :) and the horses enjoyed turnout, plus stalls with long runs. Convenient place to plug in a LQ trailer. Highly recommend this place, as well as the Elevation 486 restaurant, about 20-min away.". . . (3/18/18) - "John was a fascinating host. We really enjoyed staying at his farm and learning about his experiences. He owns some gorgeous Australian Shepherds. Having a hookup was nice. Would happily stay again. Thanks John!". . . (6/19/18) - "I have stayed here 4 times....wonít stay anywhere else! Great place for the horses to stay and the owners are wonderful!". . . (8/22/18) - "Nice hosts.... the stalls needed shavings but all was clean & safe. Unfortunately, we were parked in front of the cattle - the cattle mooed all night very loudly keeping us awake much of the night. We recommend parking away from the cattle but the place is fine otherwise."
