“One yr & counting, Wedding Anniversary”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2011

Our second stay with Laughing Horse. This occasion was in celebration of our one year wedding anniversary. Lodge #8 is a 2 bedroom, 1 bath with a full kitchen & small dining/living room. Colorful, clean & cozy. Even tho the weather had taken a turn for the worst (rainy, cold & windy) it was nice to curl up on the futon & get in some good face time & TV time. Located just a couple of blocks from the beach, eateries & some specialty shopping, the laughing horse is a special place. Enjoyed, thanks Candy & Ray - see you again, but maybe in the summer next time. The Filla's.

Room Tip: Lodge #8 is located in the middle of the complex, great little 2 bedroom, 1 bath with full kitchen...

This was the 3rd or 4th time at Laughing horse, This time I brought my elderly somewhat handicapped mom. The experience was much better than I had hoped...Rachael had the room spic and span clean, she went above and beyond the call, friendly and helpful...Candy at the office solved several small issues with enthusiasm and grace with a smile on her face...She went out of her way even though she was off work at the time....The lodge loaned us a big pot to boil shrimp, and saw to our every need....Mom was a bit scared before we got there, as to weather or not her specific needs could or would be met......She said what a wonderful experiance and would not hesitate to go back again....We would like to thank the people at laughing horse for making our vacation so pleasant and worry free....Thanks to all.....pete

Room Tip: The owners are doing a great job of updating and decorating, all of the rooms I have stayed in have...

We spent 5 nights there in Mid-October. The little complex is nothing fancy but cute, with the different cottage rooms having names being something ___ horse (like hobby horse, etc..) the rooms themselves again are nothing fancy but the rooms are clean and were colorful and had a tropical theme.

They staff are really friendly and super pet friendly. They give you a " if found return to hotel" pet tag with the address & phone # another cool thing is they have a list in the room of dog friendly places around the island. They also have hoses to rinse of the sand off you or your pet, and dog friendly towels you can borrow.

The beach and several restaurants are just a quick walk down the street which was really convenient.

I will definitely be staying here again!
