My barn is a 12 minute drive from my house (I timed myself) and the majority of it is highway driving. I'm pretty lucky. Not only is it really convenient to get to, but the barn owner seems like a great guy. He's an older gentleman that genuinely cares about the boarders and horses on his property. I start boarding there in mid-July when my horse gets hauled in, but from the time I spent talking to him, he's just really interested in his boarder's lives and what direction they want to go, equine-wise. After showing me around, he spent about 2 hours just talking to me, asking how I planned to train my horse, what my goals were, how I came into horses... just random things.
I got really lucky when it came to finding this barn. The facility is a little outdated, but it's kept in good repair. The fences are solid, the barn is clean and the arena is tidy. The pastures look good. There is an indoor arena, a round pen, private pens, a wash stall, bathrooms... it's just a nice place. And for the price ($180/month including feed), I couldn't go wrong.
