Great place to stay if you love the country and horses and great place to stay if you don't. This place was great and the owners were great as well. Lots of room to enjoy nature with the trails and the horses. Close to town and big enough for all eight of us. We have already reserved it for 2014 when we come back for our next graduation from Liberty U.

Owner's reply:

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Thank you for the hospitality. We would love to reserve the same week in May 2014. Thank you again!

I wanted to thank you for making your place affordable to the average person. You could probably charge way more than you do and cater to the more affluent crowd. The girls and I all thank you for sharing your place with us. We truly appreciate the opportunity you have given us and cherish it. We felt like Queens during our stay!

My husband and I, along with a few of our friends, have made two trips to Indian Creek Bed and Stable and have loved each visit. It is the perfect weekend getaway for us and our horses! The accommodations are phenomenal, very spacious with ...wonderful views all around. The barn itself is gorgeous and Chris does an excellent job in helping us to take care of our horses while we are there. There is plenty to do on the property with over 180 acres of land to ride on and there are plenty of trails and back roads to try off the property as well! This is a great place to stay; we've already booked a third trip!

Loved it! Can't wait till we come back in Oct!

We can't wait to come back!

Sorry- We don't want to tell anyone about your place so we can get reservations on the popular college weekends!

Wow! We have been renting homes all over for the past 3 years and have to say that yours is the best we have ever stayed at! Thank you so much for such a great stay!!!

We had such a great time on your farm and so enjoyed watching the horses and hiking the trails! Can't wait to come back!

Thank you for such a lovely stay at Indian Creek. Everything was fantastic! We are really looking forward to returning next month. I still have a few more trails to explore. Thanks again for everything!
