Overall impression

We really enjoyed our stay at Buffalo Creek. The house was homey and comfortable. It was the best way to stay as a family. The house had everything we needed and would consider staying again!

Virginia countryside near Lexington

  • 3 of 5

Older farm home situated in a unique area. Off the beaten path and near a large creek. Home as described and large enough to house many. Showing at the Horse Park with a group of 7. Due to our busy schedule mostly there for part of the evening and then off again in the morning. Water pressure in bathroom was poor. Nice to have a washer and dryer for a larger group so we could do bath towels. Unfortunately, shared the home with a family of mice that week.

Owner's Response: As the owner of an older farm house in the country, I want all my guests to be comfortable in my home. I am glad Marlee was able to use the washer and dryer provided for guests. The large creek on the property is always a pleasure, but not so much the uninvited little creatures. Marlee contacted me following her departure. I was able to give Marlee and her guests a complenatary refund for an inconvenience for them.

Fantastic Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

We had one of the most enjoyable family Thanksgivings ever at Buffalo Creek. The property is just as described and the setting is so tranquel and beautiful. Being Thanksgiving there was a lot of kitchen activity and we had everything we needed. With 6 of us we were a bit concerned about the lack of a dishwasher but we all pitched in and it was no issue at all. The owner was a pleasure to work with, very prompt to respond to my multitude of questions and even left fresh, fall flowers on the dining room table and invited us to use her formal china and linens for the holiday feast. We are already wanting to plan our next visit, maybe during a warmer time of year when we can fly fish or maybe even for next Thanksgiving. All of the beds were very comfortable and the way the rooms are situated, they were very quiet. We were able to bring our dogs too and it was such a pleasure to let them out and not worry about them, since the yard is completely fenced in. I have nothing negative to say, we loved this farmhouse.

Great house to rent near Lexington

  • 5 of 5

It was really cool to stay in a house that was built so long ago. There was plenty of room for our family. And while we did have a slight challenge because the water system that fed a couple of the houses had failed - we made the best of it. We told the kids that we booked the "Pioneer Package" and would bringing buckets of water from the nearby stream to flush the toilets. Since the water pump failed late on a Friday night, a repairman wasn't available until Monday morning. It was Friday the 13th after all! The owner was more than generous with the amount she refunded us for our inconvenience. It was a great weekend, and we had a great time. We would definitely recommend this rental home.

Owner's Response: Thanks Greg. As a property owner, you always hold your breath that nothing goes wrong, especially not living in the same area. It is nice to know that people can still have an enjoyable time and make the best of things when something goes wrong. I thought for sure I would be able to get someone out on Saturday, it was a quick fix on Monday morning.

Buffalo Creek

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for two weeks and enjoyed every minute. We were here for two weeks of horse shows at the Horse Center. The drive there was very scenic. For anyone interested in flyfishing, this was a great time to be in the area.

The house was a treat and the owner could not have been more accommodating. We will certainly do this again.

Buffalo Creek What a country treat!

  • 5 of 5

I recomend Buffalo Creek to all. This is a wonderful country escape 20 minutes and 11 miles from the lexington horse center. This is a peaceful quite retreat in the country. The listing photos and description are on the mark, and the owner could not be more helpful.
