Comments: (12/10/04) - "{The owner} was wonderful and the place is a destination with views of the Smokies. We had a concrete pad with 20 and 50 volt, water and dump right there so we were in heaven. We rode in her hayed fields.". . .(5/3/08) - "Fantastic cottage! Great paddock for my young horses. Attentive host. Thanks for a great stop!". . .(7/29/08) - "Wonderful accommodations for horses and people. Strongly recommend. The owner was more than gracious when we showed up at 3am (more than slightly ahead of schedule). Sorry for that!". . . (5/19/10) - "We have stayed in many places over five years of traveling with horses and always look forward to Teresa's place. We had too much rain to go out riding on the WA Creeper trail but we took the truck off and went out to dinner and real theater in town. Great destination for a trailering or cottage stop. We used her cottage for TV.". . . (5/4/15) - "Lovely cottage to stay. Paddock with attached two stalls for horse. Nice for the horse to stretch his legs. Would worry if the horse was not used to grass as stall is small.". . . (10/12/15) - "This farm was a nice stopover. The cottage had every amenity, including g full Direct TV. It was clean and I could see my horse who was 25 feet away in a grassy paddock. The stalls were dirt run ins attached to paddock. No contact with other horses. If your horse is not used to grass this may not be the best as the stalls are small after having been in a trailer. Perfect place to let them stretch their legs in a beautiful setting. Teresa was a great host. Highly recommend.". . . (9/15/18) - "Absolutely the best horse hotelier ever! Teresa is a super host! Had to emergently stop due to a horse problem and Teresa arranged for the vet to attend to my horse within minutes of arrival. Also accommodated my other two horses in stalls. I slept in my trailer but she has an adorable cottage as well. Reasonably priced and safe."

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.)
(3/8/16) - "This is a highly recommended layover facility. Stalls were large, freshly bedded with 2 clean buckets of water. The barn is surrounded by fences and gates for added security. The farm is easy to find and I was able to turn and maneuver my 6 horses head to head trailer with no problems. The owner, Carl Richardson, was there to greet us on arrival. He helped us get horses settled in and provided equipment so we could clean out the trailer. Carl is very knowledgeable and lives 100 ft. from the barn. He also provided assistance when pulling out of the driveway the next morning at 6am! If you are traveling I-81 in Virginia, this is a perfect location to layover. Lots of hotels and restaurants only 5 minutes from the barn. Thank you again Carl!". . . (7/15/16) - "We were very pleased with our layover at Goose Creek Farm, LLC. The horse stalls and green paddocks were large, clean, and secure. Also the professional RV hook up location was in a secure, private area for the night .We will definitely use Goose Creek Farm, LLC in the future for a layover when we come through Bristol, VA since it is so close to I-81, exits 5 and 7. Carl Richardson is a real horse professional.". . . (11/28/16) - "Goose Creek Farm, LLC is a beautiful place for a layover with clean stalls, nice paddocks & plenty of grass and fresh water. We will definitely return on our trips through SW Virginia.". . . (11/28/16) - "Carl is a very friendly host and the farm is very beautiful and accommodating. Beautiful pastures and great stalls. Carl was very helpful. We highly recommend Goose Creek Farm in Bristol, VA - 5 star horse hotel.". . . (1/3/17) - "Highly recommend this equine layover when traveling. Owner/ host was gracious and assisted us with local accommodations for us and our dogs for an overnight stay. We will definitely be back when traveling through this area.". . . (5/5/17) - "Had a great overnight stay at Goose Creek Farm, LLC in Bristol, VA. Our horse stayed warm and dry in a nice stall (there was heavy, heavy rain last night), we had electric for the trailer and it was an easy in and easy out! Not far off of I-81, this is a great place to stop if you're hauling horses in this area. Many thanks to the farm owner Carl Richardson for his hospitality and for standing out in the dark and the pouring rain with a flashlight directing us where to go when we arrived! We'll be back on our next trip down south!". . . (5/9/17) - "Goose Creek Farm and Mr. Richardson were a pleasant discovery. He met us at the gate and had the stall all prepared for our horse. The hotel recommendation was fine and close. We look forward to enjoying his hospitality in the future.". . . (8/4/17) - "Goose Creek farm is an awesome layover spot. Carl is great and makes you feel right at home. Our horse was in a great paddock and loved being there. They have hook ups for RV's and the paddocks are right next to the hookups, so you can keep a watch on your horse. I highly recommend this farm for your next layover!!". . . (3/27/18) - "Cannot say enough good things about Carl @ Goose Creek Farms. We made arrangements for another horse motel a few exits before but our large rig couldn't fit into the driveway. It was pouring out and we sat in a Dollar General calling around to find another horse hotel. We called Goose Creek Farm and Carl was amazing; cordial and friendly and, even though it was late, he opened his door to our horses and gave them a beautiful paddock to roam. The horses loved it. He asked what time we were leaving in the morning and we told him 3 a.m. Coming down the road at 3 in the morning, there was Carl waiting for us to help us get hooked up and get the horses loaded. I highly recommend his farm for an overnight stay or longer. The motels are literally at the end of his road with lots of restaurants nearby.". . . (5/8/18) - "Too good to be true!! Right off the interstate, pristine clean, large, well bedded stalls and a knowledgeable caretaker in Carl Richardson. This is our second visit and won’t be our last. Goose Creek Farm is a gem. Mr. Richardson met me on our first visit at the end of his driveway so I would not miss it. On our second visit, he waited for us at the end of the driveway, outside in the dark, in a thunderstorm and guided us to the barn with a flashlight. Hotels and restaurants are 5 minutes away. Easy to pull into the driveway with big rigs. What a FIND!!". . . (7/4/18) - "Very pleased with accommodations. Will be staying there again! Mandy Owen.". . . (8/10/18) - "My horses , my dogs (3) and myself had a wonderful layover at Goose Creek Farm. I stayed in my trailer on the property; it was quiet and peaceful. The farm is well maintained. My dogs had a great time playing in the round pen. The pen my horses stayed in had a run in shed and a clean water trough. I highly recommend staying at this farm."

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."

Comments: (1/18/16) - "Could not have had a better experience! Very attentive to the horse and extremely accommodating. They went the extra mile to make my stay as stress free and nice as could be! Thank you Linda, Ernie and Mark! I will stay again and I would recommend them to anyone.". . . (1/22/16) - "A great overnight stop. Coming from PA to SC, I came in after dark and as it had rained 4 days previous, I got my trailer stuck. They were out with a tractor in no time to get me turned around. Excellent hotel choices 10 minutes from the barn. Easy, easy off and on Interstate. Super care, safe and clean. Would highly recommend to friends. I will be using them again on my return trip in March. Thanks.". . . (5/2/16) - "5 Stars!! Loved this place and the owners. Extremely organized, clean, and welcoming. Offered me a list of available hotels close by. My stay was wonderful and my horse felt very comfortable. I highly recommend Erlinmar Equestrian Center in Virginia.". . . (6/3/16) - "Very friendly, safe place, easy to get to.". . . (12/6/16) - "The facility, Linda, the location were ALL MUCH BETTER than described in her listing! The rates were very competitive too! We arrived later than expected and they were standing in the driveway with big smiles waiting for us. It's minutes from 295 and 5 miles from a great Holiday Inn Express which made a huge difference! Last motel we stayed at was miles from the highway and many miles from a decent people motel. Pick Erlinmar for your layover and you will be so happy you did!". . . (5/19/17) - "Linda and her facility are AWESOME!! Thanks so much. We'll be back!"

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!

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!"

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."

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."
