The Stablehouse is a fully furnished two-bedroom guest rental adjacent to one of the barns and stables of the beautiful 75 acre Herold Farms in Alto Pass. The interiors have a western theme, and a corral with indoor stalls is available for rent also. Easy access to the corral for loading and unloading horse trailers is via a circular driveway. (Note: You must bring your own horses - we do not have horses for rent. We board horses but may or may not have horses in the corral when you visit.)
The rental includes a full kitchen with front porch, back outdoor patio, arbor and BBQ, and sleeps up to two couples (queen and full size beds) with a pull-out futon for children. The Stablehouse is the perfect getaway for a long weekend or a week vacation. Hunters, equestrians, hikers, vacationers and families with children are welcome! We also like pets, if well-behaved - call to tell us about your pet.
