Help on finding a place to board!

I'm about ready to start shopping for a horse, but I need to find a good place to board first. I don't want to fall in love with something and miss out on it because I don't have anywhere to put it!

So, I've lived in the area for about 12 years now and I know of several places that offer boarding but I'm not thrilled with the idea of any of them.
The first is a place I tried out when we first moved here, and even as an inexperienced kid I wasn't impressed with them. I hear they've upgraded their fencing, but they still have a lot of horses on the property and a lot of people who don't know what they're doing. They charge $350 a month for full board and on the up side have an indoor arena and some pretty nice trails.

The second option is the place where I used to take lessons. They also charge $350 a month for full board and have an indoor arena. They are knowledgeable horse people who take good care of their boarders. I switched barns in the first place because the trainer/owner there was constantly canceling my lessons, trying to sell me an overpriced green horse, and generally made me feel like my business wasn't important to her. So you can see why I'm hesitant to jump into that one.

I would go to the place I ride at currently but it's 30 minutes away and I don't have the time or gas money to make a trip out there much more than once a week :(

I've scoured google and cgraigs list looking for places that I might not have heard of, but I haven't had too much luck so far. Any suggestions on places I might go to find listings. And pointers on what to look for/keep in mind when looking for a place to board would be helpful too.
