We broke down at 9PM on the turnpike and through several phone calls were able to locate the Shamrock Ranch. Carol and Tim were super nice, and accomadating. We needed stalls for two yearling stallions and two
race mares. The Stalls were large, safe and CLEAN. The bunkhouse
was the cleanest place we have stayed in. Decorated in Western style
with shelves of books, tv, kitchenette. A very nice continental breakfast
was provided. Wish we had had time to fish the pond. Location was very good, close to town, quiet and very charming place. On our return
we needed one stall and made a point of calling Carol to get one. She
had one so we used her barn a second time, (The bunkhouse was occupied or we would have stayed there too.) It sure made the best of
a bad situation and would recommend you to stay there. Kay&Walt
Shamrock's lovely location, scenic trails and charming bunkhouse combined with hosts who are genuinely intersted in their guests make Shamrock Ranch a great place to stay.
We have boarded at the stable for a year, and our horse, along with all the other horses, is treated like royalty. The quality hay is plentiful, the water warmed in the winter, stalls have fans in the summer. The large indoor riding arena is beautifully maintained and a joy to use. I have boarded in Chicago, Chattanooga, Lincoln,Nebraska and Memphis. I have never seen such a clean barn, or known such concientious managers.
All the guests we've seen pass through heartily agree--Shamrock is a delightful place to visit and an excellent place to board if you live in the area.
