Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Indiana - The Cottage At Natural Valley

4 Bedroom, 4.5 Bath, Sleeps 12 On 75-Acre Horse Ranch, Close To Indianapolis

This beautiful 4 bedroom 4.5 bath home is situated on our family-owned WORKING 75-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, and 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.

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 and ducks roaming around the property.

Feel like fishing? Grab your pole and take a short walk to our 3-acre stocked lake for some bluegill, crappie or bass. 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 it is on our property. Please be sure to check google maps if you are unsure of the walk.

How about a hike on our miles of trails? Don't feel like walking, rent a horse and let one of our guides take you for a ride on our groomed trails that meander through woods and fields. Play some basketball or throw some horseshoes. Grab a volleyball for a game down by the lake or take a swim.

Feel like cooking outdoors? You can either cook on your private back porch on your own gas grill or head down to the lake and cook out over an open fire or our charcoal grill at the lake-side shelter. There is also a beautifully equipped kitchen with plenty of seating to dine indoors.

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 your house.

The grounds are beautifully landscaped and 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!

Wonderful place to stay! Indy is a great destination for an extended weekend of family activities

  • 5 of 5

We were here as a central location to family. The house was cozy, comfortable, and perfect for visits with the family. We moved from the area so it was nice to go back and be familiar with all Indy still has to offer. We hiked, fished, relaxed and cooked in the large kitchen. We just needed one more day to just BE and take advantage of more fishing. hiking and horseback riding. Next time for sure!

Wonderful House! Amazing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for our group of 16 horse enthusiasts. Plenty of room for everyone and all our gear, and the little amenities were great. Kitchen was easily able to handle 4 different eating groups/styles. Having the linens provided, and a washer/dryer was a huge things for us travelers. Lovely area, and the kids had fun with in the yard and the local pets/animals. Great location, easy for us to get to the fairgrounds everyday. Wish we had an extra day or two just to hang out at the house!

This home is beautiful inside and out.

  • 5 of 5

We had an event near this home and it was perfect for our team of 10. The owners were quick to respond to the last minute rental and made sure we knew that they were available to help once we arrived. All the comforts of home on the main and upper level and a great lower level space rec room to unwind. We will return to this home and we recommend others stay as well.

A GREAT place for family memories! March 28 - April 2, 2016

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 adults and six children, ages 20 months to 9 years old, enjoyed five nights of spring break together at the Cottage at Natural Valley Ranch. The house was perfect for our needs and spacious enough for everyone to have their own space. Both the kids and the adults enjoyed movie nights and playing cards and games. The kitchen and grill served up many delicious meals including one delivered from a local pizza place. The weather was not perfect, but the lake was a hit for the beginning fishermen (and women)!! They enjoyed getting out in the boat and fishing from the shore. We all enjoyed the animals that appeared each day. Turkey, chickens, dogs, cats, and even two Pileated Red Headed Woodpeckers were seen from the kitchen. Our days were spent enjoying Conner Prairie, the Children's Museum and the sculptures in the park next to the Art Museum. We wish the weather would have been nicer to enjoy some horseback riding but maybe the next time!

The house was clean and quaint. Enjoyed all the little touches of the farm house. Rental process was easy, Marie was very nice. Already thinking of other groups who would enjoy getting together here.

National Honor Band Family Re-union

  • 5 of 5

The experience that we shared at this wonderful country home could not have been better! I was greeted by the owner: Marie so welcoming and accommodating. Then when I was checking out the acreage I met Chuck; Marie's husband who was no less accommodating, friendly and helpful. We had children with us and took full advantage of all that Natural Valley has to offer. Time seemed to allow us what would not have been possible if we had planned all we did! Horseback riding, fishing, canoeing, and the little ones took turns paddle-boating! We walked over the petting "zoo" area, and Hank the pig sauntered over to the grassy area for some belly rubbing. The home was clean, the beds very comfy, and the ambiance of the home that the owners created is perfect. We hope to return soon to rest, relax and enjoy more Country- Living!

A life-size dollhouse with a generous amount of space for family and friends.

  • 5 of 5

The owners were gracious hosts, which made the whole experience stress-free and relaxing. The home was lovely-outfitted with comfy beds and all that we needed to whip up meals in the bright, roomy kitchen. The kids loved rolling down the hill out front & talking to the various critters on the property. We would love to come back, and would definitely recommend the cottage to friends.
