Great place to stay! Skip the hotels and scoot off the beaten path to this homestead. James and his wife have a beautiful ranch tucked away in the middle of everything. A long lane with Spanish moss soaked trees line the way to this little piece of horse country paradise. The guest house is very well maintained, beds were extremely comfortable and the home was equipped with all the necessary kitchenware, linens, umbrellas, etc. And the beautiful horse stalls are literally located under the same roof!! Open your back door and you find classy horse stalls with pretty, clean and extremely happy horses!! Our boys woke up to the sound of neighing..it was wonderful! Feed them carrots, groom them, and saddle up for a ride! No horse riding experience necessary, reliable and friendly supervision comes with stay! And don’t forget to check out the hen house for some fresh eggs! I highly recommend Happy Trails. James is a true blue patriot, businessman and cowboy. He was a fascinating host which only added to our great experience. We will definitely be back!
My granddaughter and I had a great time. She thought they let her pick out her horse. LOL.
