About the property

4 Bedroom, 4.5 Bath, Sleeps 12-16 On 78-Acre Horse Ranch, Close To Indianapolis

This beautiful 4 bedroom 4.5 bath home is situated on our family-owned WORKING 78-acre horse farm which specializes in trail rides. This is a working farm and you will see farm equipment both sitting around and in use. Please be careful and supervise your children. The farm's equipment are not toys.

We are convenient to Indianapolis, Indianapolis International Airport, Childrens Musuem and other area attractions. Indianapolis is known for motor sports — Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Lucas Oil Raceway are easy to get to, yet far enough away to relax and enjoy yourself. You can also find out what is happening in our area during your stay by checking out the websites for Hendricks County Visitors Bureau or Visit Indy.

Although their are plenty of dining out options within 25 minutes of the home, the kitchen is fully stocked with all the cookware and utensils for you to use to make meals at home. There is a gas grille on our spacious, private back porch for the grill masters in your group to use or if you want to dine by our lake there is a gas grille in our lakeside shelter.

Spend your day and evening sitting on our wrap-around porch watching our horses and goats at the Ranch, you'll probably see our free range chickens, ducks and pot belly pigs roaming around the property. Your evenings could be complete with a bon fire either by the house or by the lake.

Feel like fishing? Grab your pole and take a short walk to our 3-acre stocked lake for some bluegill, crappie or bass. This is a private lake that you will share with guests from The Cabin at Natural Valley Ranch. We currently have a canoe, boat and 2 paddle boats for your use at no extra charge. Bring your fly rod and head over to White Lick Creek and catch some small mouth bass. The home does not overlook our lake, but is on our property. Please be sure to check google maps if you are unsure of the walk. It is about 3 minutes and includes a small sand beach for swimming. Life jackets are not provided

Other options for fun while you are stay at The Cottage are playing basketball by the house or volleyball by the lake. Trail rides are what we specialize in so don't miss out on making more memories by riding one of our horses with a guide on our trails that meander through 50 acres of woods, fields and sometimes White Lick Creak. We offer 30 minute, 60 minute or 90 minute trail rides.

Having a family reunion or other event? Ask about renting our lake-side 'Outpost-Country Occasions' facility with more than 1,000 sq. ft. of meeting/event space with access for caterers should you so choose. There's even room for a tent.

We do have pets on the premises, cats, dogs, chickens, ducks, etc. All are friendly and none will be in the house.

Your stay includes the use of a two car garage with parking for another 10+ cars up to the largest vehicles, including a bus.

We are in Brownsburg about 12 miles west of Indianapolis. We have many dining and shopping options close by if you choose.

Family-friendly and family fun . . . you will discover the difference that family makes when you discover Natural Valley Ranch!

Very Comfortable Accommodations

  • 4 of 5

We are repeat guests and once again enjoyed a very comfortable stay at the Cabin at Natural Valley Ranch. The accommodations are welcoming and perfect for a family or group of friends. The location is real enough to be relaxing, yet close to the attractions and conveniences of the city.

The owners are very friendly and responsive despite minor inconveniences such as trouble finding the magnetic key for the exercise equipment, and a broken can opener.

Overall, we highly recommend!

Comfy and Enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 11 stood at the cottage during the Christmas holiday. Everyone fit comfortably and plenty of room to spread out. Everything we needed was available (towels, dishes, bakeware, linen, blankets, games, etc). The property was very nice and get to take family pictures. Definitely would stay again.

Family Get Together

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Cottage in October, 2017 for the weekend and had a ball. There was 9 of us plus our daughters dog that stayed on Friday/ Saturday with checkout on Sunday. We had our Southern Indiana relatives visit us in the afternoon and evening which was a blast. We played basketball, rode the horses, visited the goats, pigs, horses, and cats, dogs, and viewed a turkey and geese on the property. The Cottage was very clean and comfortable. The only thing that I viewed was there was various maintenance items that needed to be fixed which did not effect our stay to any degree. I would recommend this for any large family get together.

nice setting but a little far from indianapolis motor speedway (traffic bad)

  • 4 of 5

property attention to detail could be better. upstairs shower did not drain well - repaired when we pointed it out to owner. master bathroom had nice Jacuzzi tub, but no shower - we did not appreciate this from the property description. water, likely well water, has a serious bad odor to it - likely sulfur. kitchen drawer labeled cork screw - no cork screw available in kitchen. owner acknowledged in email and at checkin that I was mistakenly over charged $60 and he would give me cash refund - owner lived on property but did make any effort to bring me the $60 cash.

Owner's Response: We do not always catch, especially if not notified of maintenance issues at the Cottage. We were able to fix the drain in the bath the next day after being notified. We appreciate our guests letting us know of issues that we need to take care of. The home does have well water. We have not had any comments about sulfur smells in the water in a couple of years. I will look into this situation immediately. I did talk to the guest about refunding the monies and talked to him directly on check in. I told him that I would bring him the the money that week. I did forget and left to go to my sons military graduation. I remembered while there and had every intention of mailing out cash upon my return, which will be this week. The home is about 3.5 miles from Indianapolis Raceway Park. I drive right past there every day and even with traffic it takes about 8 minutes to get there. The indianapolis motor speedway is a little farther, but it takes about 20 minutes to get there even with morning traffic.

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 16 stayed comfortably in this beautiful house. We enjoyed our time thoroughly! The front porch was a homey spot to sit and talk. The kids loved the basketball net and water activities. We had more than enough blankets, towels etc - everything was easily accessible. Thanks!

We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. There was plenty to do on the property, so we never went off-site as intended. The workers with the animals were helpful and welcoming. Other than a few minor inconveniences, all went well. The property was clean and comfortable, with plenty of seating for all 14 of us! This was one of the few places where all in our family said "let's come here again!"
