Comments: (6/14/07) - "Cypress Creek is a wonderful horse hotel. Mr. and Mrs. Talton were very friendly and helpful. Mrs. Talton spoke with us several times on the phone before our arrival and even met us in her vehicle and guided us in. The stalls were very clean and roomy. After traveling 14 hours the day before our horse didn't want to get on the trailer for another day of travel; Mr. Talton was a big help loading our horse. I would recommend Cyress Creek to anyone traveling.". . .(11/9/08) - "Georgeous Place! Easy to get to, easy to get the big trailer in and out! Very nice barn. Billy Jack and Carolyn are THE nicest people! Very friendly and even stayed up late waiting for us. Nice quiet and safe place.". . . (8/17/10) - "What gracious and respectful hosts. Beautiful facility, restful and safe. Thankyou for a positive experience on a very long journey!". . . (7/25/13) - "The owners were very helpful and allowed us to use their round pen instead of stalls. Their own horses were just beautiful. Very convenient to the interstate, motels, and restaurants. There is a steep hill to go down, but our six horse trailer and gas engine truck managed it fine.". . . (7/25/13) - "Wonderful hosts! Checked on or horses for us so we could get some rest. Highly recommended."

(5/19/11) - "The Gilberts farm/equestrian center was AMAZING! The Facilities were first class and extremely affordable. The barn was super nice, new and modern, in a beautiful country setting right off the highway. The Gilberts stayed up waiting for us when we were having trouble with our trailer and took hours longer than expected. They waited up till 11pm, waited outside near the road to help us find the place, then helped offload our horses and took them inside to the stalls (which were clean and spacious). Mr. Gilbert fed our horses and made sure they were fine before closing up the barn. Meanwhile Mrs. Gilbert took us to our cabin next to the barn. The cabin was super clean and very modern with every convenience anyone could want, including a kitchen with dining table. The Gilberts took the time to go over how everything worked including coffee maker, AC (ice cold) fridge, shower with thick towels, and everything in the kitchen. They also provided us with FREE snacks and a nice continental breakfast that included coffee, bagels and strawberry cream cheese, several types of fruit, several types of cereal, fresh milk, soft drinks, bottled water, juice; you name it, that little cabin had it. In the morning they let us sleep in and were very quiet until they knew we were up and around. After a late night driving then they helped us load our 3 Thoroughbred horses back into the trailer and noticed what our problem had been on the previous part of the trip. Mr. Gilbert pointed out that we had a bad tire that was causing all our trouble and that knowledge helped improve the rest of our trip by enabling us to get a new tire and vastly improving our trailer handling. BOTTOM line is that the Gilberts are SUPER FOLKS!! I was so surprised to find this caliber of service and genuine warmth. I felt so at home staying in their cabin next to my horses. We were genuinely blessed to find Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert. They are fine folks and we will never stay anyplace else in that part of the country. They treated us like family.". . . (5/20/11) - "I cannot say anything good enough about Gilbert Farms.Thay waited up on us, unloaded our horses. Their barn is extra clean and extra nice. The cabin was above and beyond what we expected.The best part is the Gilberts who make you feel like family. I feel as our discovering their special Farm was a BLESSING to myself and my daughter.Thank you once more to the GILBERTS. Marianne Stewart.". . . (2/15/12) - "Mr. James and Mrs. Kay were amazing! My horses were very happy and I would love to stay there again!". . . (7/11/12) - "James & Kay called us to check on our travel progress, and met us at the gate at 12:30 am. They provided us with important local information. Gilbert Farm is accessible, safe & clean. The Gilberts are sincere and gracious hosts. I will use and recommened Gilbert Farm in the future, as needed. I score it a "10" - CSG.". . . (12/20/12) - "Some of the most helpful and kind folks we have met on the road. We will be back.". . . (1/31/13) - "We agreed with all the lovely comments people had made regarding James and Kay's ranch. James and Kay even checked in on us after we had left to make sure we made it through the weather okay!! Incredibly gracious kindness. Thank you James for the prayer and sharing the Routey and Stoney story. We were so lucky to have met you.". . . (6/7/13) - "These are lovely folks and the stalls are custom made and beautiful. The horses cannot see each other in each stall. The Gilbert's are caring, prayerful people and their hospitality on our journey was greatly appreciated. We truly hope to see them again and maybe one day be able to attend their Cowboy Church.". . . (6/10/13) - "We would travel that extra few miles just to stay at Gilbert Farm. James and Kay went out of their way to welcome us, meeting us in the dark to show us the way to their wonderful clean spacious stalls with fresh shavings. We have a huge rig. Gilbert Farm was easy to get in and out of with huge oak trees for shade and a round pen to let your horses kick up their heels if needed. There is a cute cowboy cabin for those that need somewhere to sleep. We would happily have stayed longer and will definitely return on our way through again.". . . (10/31/13) - "We stayed two nights at the Gilbert's on our way from Florida to Texas and back. I have never met nicer and more helpful people. Mr. Gilbert was there on our arrival. My horse had a little trouble unloading. Mr. Gilbert worked with me and the horse for almost an hour helping the horse to load and unload better. Mr. Gilbert was prepared to stay with it all night if that's what it took, too. The facilities were excellent, and the Gilbert's knowledge of horse care and hospitality was second to none. The cabin was very clean and well furnished and stocked with food and drinks for us. I can't wait to come back and visit them the next time through, and highly recommend to anyone traveling that way to stay with them.". . . (12/6/13) - "Mr. James and Ms. Kay were great; not only did they check on our travel progress but they were there to greet us on arrival and help with our horses. Nice facilities and easy access to groceries and restaurants.". . . (12/11/13) - "Nice large clean stalls. Fresh shavings, water, etc. The facilities were excellent but the best part of boarding with the Gilbert's is the Gilbert's themselves. Super nice, caring, knowledgable, horse people. It was a joy to meet and visit with them. This is the type of place where you try to plan your trips so you have an excuse to stop by their facility to board again."

Comments: (9/18/11) - "We stopped over on our way from TX to GA and what a pleasant surprise! This facility is so special and unique I would recommend it to all of my horse friends. The owners met us upon arrival and did everything they could to make our visit relaxing. Jeannie even went and bought us hamburgers. Great facility and great family running it. Completely trustworthy. I would give it 5 stars and recommend it to anyone.". . . (9/18/11) - "Wonderful hosts and very helpful with my horse and trailer. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thanks for making this such a pleasant and convenient stay for my horse. Loved the location too, so close to I-12.". . . (9/19/11) - "Super place to lay over. Lovely farm, and lovely hosts. Would stay again without hesitation! Thank you so much!". . . (12/10/11) - "Lovely, friendly owners, beautiful bathroom and shower to use. New. Would highly reccomend!". . . (2/27/12) - "We had a very nice experience here! We were traveling from Wellington, Florida to Los Angeles, California; after leaving Tallahassee it was a very nice distance to Slidell. My horse had an oversized stall and was very happy. I felt extremely comfortable leaving my horse here while we went to New Orleans for dinner. The owners were very friendly, helpful and professional. I would recommend anyone to stay here as I will again for sure. Thanks so much!" . . . (9/14/12) - "We stayed here on the way from Dallas, TX to Wellington, FL. The pictures do not do this place justice! The barn is great, very safe stalls, nice wash bay, and a very wide aisle. I can't say enough good things about either the barn, the grounds, or the hosts! Jeannie and her husband were great! They were also able to suggest a great hotel for us to stay the night only 3 miles from the barn! Could not be happier, and my usually anxious horse was settled and calm almost immediately. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!". . . (5/5/13) - "We really enjoyed our stay. The facility is clean and well kept. The stalls are secure and everything was ready for our horses when we pulled in. There is a cute bath house attached to the barn. Bill and Jeannie, our hosts, were the best. We felt like we were visiting friends. This is the place to stay in Louisiana! Two thumbs up.". . . (12/6/13) - "Great stay. Horses loved stretching their legs in the front pasture. Nice facility and parking for larger trailers.". . . (12/12/13) - "Very nice facility, nice folks and very accommodating.". . . (5/31/14) - "Great place for a stopover or to stay a while! Jeanne and Dave are great hosts, the facilities are safe, secure, and beautiful. My horse has stayed there twice and I'll definitely schedule again for our next trip!"

Comments: (1/25/11) - "This place was probably in my top 5 best horse motels I've ever stayed with & I've stayed all over the country due to military moves. Mark was extremely friendly & accommodating. I felt very safe leaving my mare with him & he went way above & beyond what he needed to do. I would reccomend this place to anyone! Thanks, Mark!". . . (3/11/11) - "We are on our way home and stopping here again for an overnighter. Mark is a great guy and our experience here the first time through in December of 2010 was very positive. Only issue is the approach to enter - the driveway is a short apron that is a bit steep. Wasn't sure if our 32' trailer would have an issue bottoming out when we left, but it didn't.". . . (3/19/11) - "This is our fourth long distance move using horse motels and P&M is by far our favorite. Mark was great when we arrived, the barn was bright and very clean, stalls are large and the whole place felt very secure. Mark even moved his pony so we could turn out our very trailer-tired gelding into his large arena to stretch and roll before going to his stall for the night. We would definitely stay again!". . . (8/24/11) - "This place was great, the hospitality was great and it was handy to get in with a trailer and park with good horse facilities.". . . (8/29/11) - "Close to Interstate exit. Feed and hay available, great store at premises. Very close to great hotels and restaurants. Highly recommended."
