The Stables

Surrounded by acres of rolling pastures, The Stables at Russell Crossroads is a working two-story equestrian center housing quarter horses to Clydesdales—sometimes, goats too. Guided trail rides are available from your hosts, Stanley and Linda. The Stables is also a favorite venue for rustic weddings at Russell Lands.
