Arrington Villa Rental Photos and Description

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). If you don't have a horse, but want to enjoy the trails, you can ride a Golf Cart and have a picnic next to the stream in our new picnic area.

Good on some features; others lacking

  • 3 of 5

The property is beautiful and would be wonderful for people who want to go horse-back riding in the mountains. The rooms were spacious and there is a very large leather sofa which is quite comfortable. There is a deck, but it is considerably smaller than the misleading photo on their website. The property was clean and the owners were quite responsive to our needs (which were minor).

There are a couple of features that less than optimal, especially for the price. First, the signage for finding the property is too small, making it VERY hard to locate. It's particularly difficult at night on the narrow, windy roads. Second the beds were poor. The mattresses were saggy and very uncomfortable. It seriously affected our ability to sleep, which, alone would make me not want to stay there again. In hindsight, I should have slept on the couch! but that would be awkward for the other people who wanted to stay up later.

Owner's Response: I’m sorry that you were disappointed in your stay at Indian Creek Bed and Stable. Our property is in rural Virginia and navigation, especially at night, can be a challenge. For this reason, I send our guest “local detailed information” and tell them to watch for the large spot lights on the American flag at the entrance to The Inn and the long stretch (900’) of white fence that helps identify the farm. Our Local ordinance does not allow for large signage as the county tries to preserve the rural setting and does not want the mountain views to be interrupted. The majority of our guest return, and don’t find the price expensive for the 2500+ square foot Villa that offers Blue Ridge Mountain views, 3 large bedrooms, 2 ½ baths, full kitchen, dining room, living room, laundry room, deck, Wifi, 4 TVs, use of the pool and hot tub, trails & a complimentary golf cart. We have been told it is “an amazing value”. Our Villa deck is 10 feet by 20 feet, and has room for a 48” table with 6 cushioned chairs. Non of the photos are re touched and they were not taken with any special lenses to make anything appear larger. I trust people will read the numerous trip advisor reviews from other guests and formulate their own opinion about your review.

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!!

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.
