The Stables at Willow Oak Farm

Located just 8 miles from historic Maysville, Kentucky, along the Licking River, The Stables at Willow Oak Farm offers stabling, boarding, and riding adventures. Owners Bill and Lesa have an interesting story about how they got their start on the farm as well.

From their web site:

About six years ago we decided to leave our hectic schedules and buy a farm. Our goal was to return to a more simple lifestyle where we could enjoy our horses and not have to venture away from home. We discovered the most beautiful piece of land in Maysville, Ky. In October of 2000 we were married in a cowboy style wedding under two 150 year old oak trees on the property and the journey began.

We shared a vision that most couldn't see. The kids thought that we were crazy when we lived in a leaky 10x12 travel trailer in the tobacco barn, without electricity or running water, for over six months. We cleared land for our lake, built a cabin to live in, that now serves as the guest house, ran water and electric lines, built our log house, and finally our stable. It was a five year adventure that I couldn't have imagined in my wildest dreams!

We love our place which Bill named Willow Oak Farm after one of his favorite trees.
