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

Lovely Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Incredible is the only word to describe our family vacation to Lexington and Darley View. Tom went out of his way to help us arrange farm tours and we also visited Woodford Reserve which was nearby. The property is outstanding. The attention to detail everywhere. The mares and foals in the adjacent paddock were icing on the cake. The sunsets on this west facing property have to be experienced. We hope to come again....

Won't regret it!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an awesome and relaxing time at the Inn! The house is beautiful and very clean! The attention to detail was great! The house had everything we could possibly think of needing. Tom and Maria were so hospitable! If we are ever back in Kentucky we will definitely stay there!

serene!

  • 5 of 5

oh my.... we stayed with our 12 year old equestrian daughter and my parents-- five in all. The house was perfectly appointed to suit a discerning grandmother and also her horse-loving granddaughter. We lived in the yard that was full of blooming flowers, a hammock, a unique fire pit, and mares with foals just over the fence. Tom was delightful and helpful, without being pushy or invasive. We would definitely recommend!

Wish we lived here!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited Lexington for a long weekend and stayed at the Darley View Inn, it was an unparalleled experience! We went to the fall race meet at Keeneland, the Kentucky Horse Park, made some stops on the Bourbon Trail and explored local breweries and restaurants- this location was perfect with easy access to all of it! Having a gorgeous kitchen was great for eating at home and having a glass of wine when we were worn out from our day! The view from the bedroom over the farm is incredible, I could sit there sipping coffee all day. The property has every modern convenience and the finishes and decor are 2nd to none. The owners were clearly available if we needed anything without being intrusive, and were very gracious hosts, stocking coffee pods in both the bedroom and kitchen, fresh cookies for our arrival and a charming horse shoe souvenir. We were sad to go, and can't wait to stay here the next time we need a thoroughbred/bourbon fix!

Special Place

  • 5 of 5

Darley View is a special place. The location is idyllic and the décor is first class. Our favorites were the balcony with its great view and the oh-so-comfortable bed and vaulted bedroom ceiling. There were only two of us, and the place is more suitable for two. There is a pullout sleeper downstairs, but no bathroom down there. The loft is very small and opens directly into the upstairs bedroom. Only other negative comment would be the lack of closet or dresser space, but because it is so unique, the positives definitely win, including the warm cookies that awaited us upon arrival!

Location

The Inn is located within a few minutes of The Coffee Pub, the most popular breakfast and lunch establishment in Lexington. 5 Minutes from a supermarket and also the same distance from Malones, the finest steakhouse in Lexington. Keeneland and Bluegrass Airport are about 8 minutes away.
