By far the "BEST" B&B we have ever experienced !

5 on March 03, 2015

From the moment we landed to the moment we departed, our experience at The Horse Creek B&B was nothing short or spectacular ! The property was immaculate and as cozy as your own home could ever feel. The attention to detail and comforts of home were abundant. The food was home made and prepared with love. As for the owners ... well ... it was obvious that they poured their hearts and souls into their craft ! Such an honor and a blessing to have crossed the path of such amazing souls as Lester and Diane. This is not a business they run ... but rather a way of life they live. The love and compassion they offer all their rescued and fostered animals along with the kindness and eagerness to make us feel at home demonstrated the love in their hearts and their "lifestyle" of giving back to this world. Our review cannot do justice in explaining our experience. You HAVE TO experience it yourself !!!


Peaceful getaway

5 on August 04, 2014

We ended our week long vacation from the hustle and bustle at this wonderful place. We weren't entirely sure what to expect, but it definitely blew us away. The hospitality and warmth from Les and Diane is truly splendid. They make you feel so wonderful and welcome. We spent two nights here which was just not enough. It is close enough to town for the essentials yet far enough to get that secluded experience. My now fiancé and I took the Blue Ridge helicopter tour right from their pasture which was so exhilarating (plus he proposed right after we got off!). Les and Diane made our special moment even better by taking pictures and sharing in the experience with us. We literally saw almost every animal possible on the property and just felt so at home. We will always have this place in our hearts and can't wait to go back!


Beautiful, peaceful get away

5 on July 01, 2014

This place exceeded our expectations. It was so pretty there and peaceful. The animals were so fun to interact with too. Diane and Les could not have been more gracious and welcoming with all of my family (two kids, 18 and 13). Breakfast made us feel special and was so good. There is hiking, visiting with the animals or relax on the farm. Or you can drive into Blue Ridge for many activities. We did the Scenic Railway and had dinner at the Black Sheep, very good! Will be visiting again!


Perfect Weekend

5 on November 15, 2013

You absolutely could not ask for better service. The room was great and the bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept on. Lester and Diane greeted us upon arrival and you felt completely at home from that point on. It is the perfect location for day trips in the North Georgia area. Also, it is VERY quiet and private. Diane served breakfast in our room every morning and I must say it was outstanding. The animals were very friendly and I am thankful there are folks like Lester and Diane who are willing to take these rescue animals on because it is a lot of work and expense to keep them up. Outside of a winning lottery ticket being left on the nightstand I can not think of a single thing that would have made my stay any better. We are planning our next trip now for the spring.

Innkeeper Response
You two are so great. If there was a way to leave a winning lottery ticket for you on the nightstand we would do it. Thank you for the super nice review and a big thanks for being great guests. We loved having you here.


The Texas Two

5 on November 06, 2013

We are sisters from Texas and we try to take at least one trip a year. We have a choice where we stay and Horse Creek Stable B&B is our choice. This was our second stay and it was like coming home. We have never been more satisfied with comfort and friendliness than at Horse Creek. We will be going back!!!!!!!!!!!

Innkeeper Response
You both know how great we think the two of you are. You've been wonderful returning guests and a pleasure to have here. Diane especially loves going to the antique auctions with you. Thanks for the great review.


Outstanding Experience at Horse Creek Stable B & B

5 on November 02, 2013

We spent 5 nights at Horse Creek, with day trips to area waterfalls, scenic highways, and renowned motorcycle roadways. Each day was another adventure that started with a great breakfast from Diane that made you not worry too much about lunch! Lester and Diane had great knowledge of the area for recommending dining and sight seeing locations. You can feel the genuine and sincere pleasure that Lester and Diane receive by providing a home for the variety of animals they have taken into their lives. The accommodations were extremely comfortable and well maintained, giving you the "at home" feeling during our stay. We are already making plans for our return trip, there is much more to experience in the Blue Ridge area, cannot do it all in just one trip. Thank you Lester & Diane for making our getaway a truly memorable experience. Dick & Theresa

A nice and relaxing experience in a beautiful setting, and interacting with the animals was fun. Diane and Lester were perfect hosts, helping us with planning our activities, and also giving us privacy. We looked forward to Diane's delicious breakfasts--especially the fresh eggs from their chickens. The guest house was comfortable and clean. We would love to visit again.

Innkeeper Response
Dear P & N, thank you for the very nice review. We would love to have you back again. Please come back again any time.


Loved every minute of my stay!

4.8 on September 26, 2013

Diane and Lester are such great people doing wonderful things for rescue animals....horses, llamas, alpacas, dogs, chickens and a cat! The room was very comfortable and clean. Their farm is just a few minutes drive from downtown Blue Ridge. The breakfasts are AMAZING! I didn't want to leave! An extremely nice couple who make you feel right at home. They are happy to let you do your own thing or happy to show you around to meet the animals. Thank you Diane and Lester for letting us be a part of your family for a few days!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We appreciate your support as the money raised by our business goes to maintaining our animal care. Thank you also for leaving us a great review. We appreciate it very much.


Horse Creek Stable B&B is an exceptional experience.

5 on July 10, 2013

The hospitality of Daine and Lester is far above anything I've ever experienced. They're very friendly and helpful in recommending local things to do. The breakfasts were awesome. I set this trip up as a surprise weekend getaway and it was perfect. The setting and locale of their farm is very private and relaxing. I came across their B&B while researching the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway and wanted something different as far as lodging. The animals are very friendly. We enjoyed sitting in front of the room, playing board games and drinking wine. Lester has a 1/2 mile trail laid out around the property and we enjoyed walking it in the cool dusk air. We loved it and plan on returning for a full week very soon.

Innkeeper Response
We get such a rush from watching a "surprise" getaway stay here unfold and seeing such delight in the eyes of the partner being surprised. For being such a hectic weekend in Blue Ridge during the Forth of July the two of you were so laid back and relaxed. We hope our little secluded spot added to that. Thank you also for your very kind generosity to Diane.


A Weekend in Paradise

5 on July 09, 2013

To call our experience magical would be too simple. When we first stepped out of our car, we were warmly greeted by our hosts Diane and Lester, who were happy to hang a hammock for our reading pleasure, direct us to the half mile trail through the woods on their property, and offer to allow us to feed the horses, llama and alpacas currently in residence on their property. We played with the dogs and petted the cat, and felt more relaxed than we have in years. Every evening, Diane would bring fresh, hot, gooey chocolate chip cookies before bed, and when morning came we parted the curtains and received some of the best bed and breakfast food we've ever had. The muffins and bread baked with ingredients from their own garden were delicious, and we loved the farm-fresh eggs. As the only guests on the property, we had free run of the terrain, and could hike the trail if we so pleased, stretch out on the hammock to read, or sit outside under the stars without disturbance. If you are looking for a wonderful, relaxing vacation, please stay at Horse Creek Stable. We cannot wait to book our next trip back!

Innkeeper Response
Having young couples stay here that love what we have to offer thrills us so much. We hope that the rest of your vacation travels went well and we would certainly be delighted if you came back. Bless you for the work you do with Operation Blessing International.
