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

Family Trip - Sisters and Daughters

  • 5 of 5

A very long overdue but heartfelt glowing review of this beautiful property. My sister and I took our daughters (ages 7, 7, 5 and 3 at the time) there for a summer kick-off trip. We were hoping to relax, have fun, and enjoy the equine scene, and did just that for an even better experience than we anticipated. The property was perfect - plenty of room for all of us, whether we were having a cookout in the expansive yard, watching a movie with the girls, or enjoying a morning on the deck, all with gorgeous views of Darley Horse Farm. We explored the surrounding area and it was convenient to so many places - downtown, the Kentucky Horse Park, and many restaurants. I wish we had planned ahead to incorporate a tour of Darley.

I agree with other reviews that the details of this property are meticulously well-done, but will add that there is an overarching vibe of serenity, beauty and comfort that helped to create lifelong memories of a wonderful family trip.

Excellent Getaway Destnation

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place to get away from the noise and congestion of downtown, look no further than Tom's renovated location. Every detail was brought into consideration, and the pictures do not do the place justice. Our group had an action packed weekend planned of sightseeing around the bluegrass state. Upon arrival, our plans changed and we made sure to spend more time as a group in the house. The top balcony offers one of the best views of an active horse farm you will find anywhere in the state (Coming from a native Kentuckian). The kitchen was more than accommodating for our group needs. Only a $20 dollar cab ride from downtown.

Everyone in the group loved the place. The only downside we had was one bathroom. Everything besides that was A+++++++++++++++++

Perfect for a special weekend

  • 5 of 5

The photos are spot-on accurate: a lovely guesthouse overlooking a gorgeous horse farm. Meticulously maintained with a welcoming host. Minor point: don't plan on any elaborate cooking because the kitchen is light on decent equipment, but that's OK because there are plenty of excellent dining options in Lexington and the surrounding towns. An excellent home base for exploring bourbon country. Highly recommended.

Quiet Serenity..

  • 5 of 5

If you want a vacation of quiet serenity yet close and convenient to everything this is the place. Darley View Inn was more than we expected. Beautiful home in the horse farm country but just minutes away from town and highways. Easy to get around town and then have a restful place to relax and watch the sunset. Owner on property and was extremely cordial and helpful. Property is as described and more, so warm and inviting decor and furnishings. You won't go wrong renting this home for your restful time in the bluegrass.

Beautiful property; perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at Tom's property for a weekend to explore the Bourbon Trail and Lexington. The property is beautiful -- newly rehabbed, well decorated, stocked with everything we needed, and on a site with the most amazing views of the area's horse farms. Tom was easy to work with and hospitable. He provided us with great information for what to do in the area, and we took advantage of being able to tour local distilleries, visit the Kentucky Horse Park, and wine/dine in downtown Lexington. We also spent plenty of time relaxing in the gorgeous back yard and on our private porch. It was a perfect way to spend a relaxing weekend! Would definitely recommend to friends and stay again!

Wedding Anniversary Trip

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay with a great view. Close to downtown attractions while still feeling like being in the country, surrounded by world-class horse farms. Everything we needed came with the property. Owner was available and accommodating the whole time. Beautiful setting, and there are nice restaurants and stores very close by for convenience.
