I'm in Maryland, between Baltimore and Annapolis. My guy is on field board for $425. The field is 2.5-3ish acres with 3 horses on it. We have about 20 acres to trail ride on. 2 outdoor rings, no indoor. A very small, limited xc course. Great care. Hot/cold wash stall. Feed and hay twice a day, blanket changes when necessary and their water trough is fed by a natural spring, so it always has cool, fresh water.
I think you could get a good bit for board, but it depends on your location.
Even though the barn is lacking in some areas and field board is steep it's in the heart of Area II eventing. We can get to a good 15-20 events in under 2 hours. VA, WV, PA and DE within 1.5 hours tops. Access to the Leesburg Veterinary Hospital, state parks and plenty of schooling oppurtunities. Location, location, location!!!!
