Comments: (6/1/08) - "Scott and Janet were friendly and available. Did a great job offering a large arena for our tired horse. Would recommend.". . . (4/23/13) - "My 2 year old filly was being transported from BC, Canada to PA, USA when the transporter had truck problems. It was a week before another shipping company was able to pick her up. In the interim I feel that Scott kept my filly calm, happy and healthy. When she did finally roll home she was in excellent condition both physically and mentally. Thank you so much Scott for taking the time with my filly and keeping me informed of how she was doing!". . . (8/10/14) - "Easy access from I-80. Scott met us at the intersection near his ranch and lead us in. He gave Dancer fresh water and a large indoor round pen to roll in and stretch his legs. The place was clean, well lit. Scott was friendly and helpful; we parked right next to Dancers door and plugged in. And the rates were very reasonable. We plan on staying there again on our return trip.". . . (9/15/16) - "Very nice facility. Scott met me when I arrived. Very accommodating. Clean & safe stalls. Parked 52 ft. rig in front of the barn with 30 amp electric available. Will use again when traveling. Great place to overnight!!". . . (7/9/17) - "Very nice. Very friendly. Very convenient."

Comments: (11/13/14) - "We have been traveling each Spring and Fall and look forward to staying at Bob Main's. It clean and safe and I know my horses are well cared for. I highly recommend this stable.". . . (6/24/15) - "Bob is a great host. He made us feel perfectly comfortable, let us use his horse wash and arena. The barn was very clean, stalls for the horses were nice and safe. Getting to Triple M Stable from the interstate was very easy. We had three trailers and 6 horses in our party; we easily parked at Triple M and had a great layover. Bob is a great guy. Thanks Bob for your hospitality.". . . (7/20/15) - "Bob squeezed us in at the last minute when our travel arrangements were changed and he was very accommodating!"

Comments: (3/10/13) - "Super nice guy. Made room for me when we were caught in a storm, even though his horses had to go out. Horses were so happy to be out of the trailer and in stalls.

Thx, Tonda.". . . (6/11/13) - "Chuck and Esther were amazingly friendly and accommodating to my horse and myself. Their facility was clean and well maintained! Thanks so much for making my trip out west easier!" (7/29/13) - "Chuck was very helpful and friendly, beautiful grass paddocks and nice clean stalls for our horse and pony. He even turned my spirited half Arab out in the morning to run off some energy before another long day on the road. What a relief to have a great, safe place to keep our horses overnight while traveling cross country! Thanks so much!". . . (9/1/13) - "Our host was very welcoming. We really enjoyed the tv and fan on the porch on a hot night. Nice safe fencing and big paddocks!". . . (9/18/13) - "I highly recommend this place; upon arrival we were greeted in a very friendly matter. The property is spotless and very well maintained with all new lovely and safe fencing. The paddock are big and clean, fresh water was waiting for the horses. Their lovely property is clean, safe and very welcoming. I felt very confident in leaving the horses there for the evening. I highly recommend this place.". . . (11/12/13) - "Chuck was extremely friendly and accommodating. We arrived late and were greeted by him to show us around and get our horse situated after a long day. We didn't get the chance to meet Esther, but this was a great facility and we will definitely be back on our next trip.". . . (9/11/15) - "Owners were very helpful and friendly, accepted a young stallion to layover while I was at a show. Very nice place to layover!!! Highly Recommend to travelers.". . . (7/17/16) - "My daughter and I were meeting our horse's new owner and turning her over in Des Moines. Due to issues at the border we did not arrive until 3:00 a.m. and Chester was there to meet us. The pictures do not do the place justice. The farm is on the edge of town and is very clean and well kept. At 3:00 a.m. Chester was as pleasant and welcoming as he was when we came back at 11:00 a.m. Our experience could not have been better. My daughter and I feel very lucky to have been able to meet Chester. (Lol, we are not family "plugging" his barn).". . . (10/31/16) - "Very pleased with our over night stalling. Chuck was a super host! Freshly bedded, safe stalls and we were able to plug into electric right by the barn. We will definitely be back!". . . (6/18/17) - "Chuck and [Esther] were awesome!! Never had we stayed at a horse motel but wouldn't hesitate to do so. Our experience was great. They took extra good care of us. Hope to see them again!! The Yeager's.". . . (7/25/17) - "Thank you Chuck and Ester for your help in our overnight stop. It was hot and we were tired and your extra help in setting up and making sure we were comfortable was appreciated. My wife was very sick that evening and ended up in ER and is currently in the hospital. I was stressed very much trying to get home that day and your extra help and pleasant welcoming home was much needed and appreciated. Thank you.". . . (11/7/17) - "Chuck was very kind, accommodating, and helpful! The barn is very nice and the stalls are safe. We highly recommend staying here!"

A big thank-you for all their help.". . . (7/27/17) - "Barb and Chloe were great...friendly, efficient, helpful. Nice stalls and round pen. 2 LQ hookups. A bit of a distance to restaurants, BUT they directed us to a nearby town that had everything you could need. Be sure to check out the summer sunrise over the fields. Great place! We'll be back."
