About Thomas Larkin

Moving to Lexington fulfills a live long dream to approach my retirement years at the center of the horse world. Finding this property has been beyond a dream. Restoring it has been a joy. I have created this property from scratch envisioning what I would personally find over the top in aesthetic stimulation. I know I experience what for me is a tiny slice of heaven every day.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Expansive views of one of the finest horse farms in the world. Centrally located only minutes from the airport, racing, and downtown Lexington

Lovely Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Incredible is the only word to describe our family vacation to Lexington and Darley View. Tom went out of his way to help us arrange farm tours and we also visited Woodford Reserve which was nearby. The property is outstanding. The attention to detail everywhere. The mares and foals in the adjacent paddock were icing on the cake. The sunsets on this west facing property have to be experienced. We hope to come again....

Wish we lived here!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited Lexington for a long weekend and stayed at the Darley View Inn, it was an unparalleled experience! We went to the fall race meet at Keeneland, the Kentucky Horse Park, made some stops on the Bourbon Trail and explored local breweries and restaurants- this location was perfect with easy access to all of it! Having a gorgeous kitchen was great for eating at home and having a glass of wine when we were worn out from our day! The view from the bedroom over the farm is incredible, I could sit there sipping coffee all day. The property has every modern convenience and the finishes and decor are 2nd to none. The owners were clearly available if we needed anything without being intrusive, and were very gracious hosts, stocking coffee pods in both the bedroom and kitchen, fresh cookies for our arrival and a charming horse shoe souvenir. We were sad to go, and can't wait to stay here the next time we need a thoroughbred/bourbon fix!

Special Place

  • 5 of 5

Darley View is a special place. The location is idyllic and the décor is first class. Our favorites were the balcony with its great view and the oh-so-comfortable bed and vaulted bedroom ceiling. There were only two of us, and the place is more suitable for two. There is a pullout sleeper downstairs, but no bathroom down there. The loft is very small and opens directly into the upstairs bedroom. Only other negative comment would be the lack of closet or dresser space, but because it is so unique, the positives definitely win, including the warm cookies that awaited us upon arrival!

One of a kind experience

Two of us stayed here and went to Keeneland, very clean and private with amazing views of the horses grazing from your second floor deck. Highly recommend

Beautiful countryside and stunning views

  • 4 of 5

This converted barn is very well appointed and convenient to everything in the Lexington area. The rooms have been decorated and the furnishings are of very high quality. There is a nice attention to detail and the little things you may have forgot have all been taken care of. The Master bedroom and bathroom are well fitted for a couple however the additional bed in the loft was not suitable for 2 grown adults as it is very small and requires a climb up a step ladder. Great for kids, but not the little ones because of the height.

The Inn is located within a few minutes of The Coffee Pub, the most popular breakfast and lunch establishment in Lexington. 5 Minutes from a supermarket and also the same distance from Malones, the finest steakhouse in Lexington. Keeneland and Bluegrass Airport are about 8 minutes away.
