VILLA/House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)on Private Estate at base of Mtns

Indian Creek Bed and Stable VILLA sits high on a hill overlooking Indian Creek and has beautiful pastoral views and views of Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains. It is a unique place, offering vacation lodging for horse & dog lovers, riders and horses in a Barn Villa that can sleep up to 8 people. The center-aisle 10 stall barn is downstairs from the 2000+ square foot, 3 bedroom Villa upstairs. Indian Creek is an excellent destination for families, friends and honeymooners as it is located on a private estate with no other guest. We are dog friendly, so you can even bring your dog to enjoy our private trails (no leash required!).

Indian Creek farm consists of 186 acres which offers 6-7 miles of hiking and riding trails through fields and woods with numerous creek crossings. If you bring your horse there are other GREAT trails nearby (Blue Ridge Rail trail is 3 miles away).

First, let me say, the owners are the best. My family stayed for a four day weekend, and did not want to go home! I can not think of anything they did not provide that we needed. Chris, was so nice to our grandchildren. She explained all about her horses. They were completly spellbound. We are looking forward to going back. Do not hesitate to book your reservation. You will be plesantly surprised!!

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5
A group of four of us had a weekend stay here during a motorcycle trip. The photos don't begin to convey how special this place is. Every room is oversized. Everything was spotless. The beds were uber-comfy. The owners couldn't have been more congenial. They have prepared a binder with everything you want to know about the apartment, local restaurants, stores, and vineyards. The horses are fun to watch, even for the non-equestrian folk. The view from the deck is breathtaking. The down-side was having to go home.
