Amherst villa description

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).
