After months of planning a winter wedding in Saratoga Springs, NY, and our honeymoon not until June, my wife Amanda and I decided we still needed a little "mini-moon" to finally get some much needed relaxation, peace and quite.
Let's start with the property before getting moving on to the Barn itself. When Amanda and I arrived, there was close to two feet of fresh snow on the ground, and the Barn could not have looked any more beautiful. Set before a beautiful mountain landscape, Witten Barn immediately impressed with the gorgeous property and vast, open land.
We pulled into a perfectly plowed driveway and made our way into the house with ease. What we found couldn't have been any more perfect for three nights of complete, isolated relaxation. The mudroom when you enter the house was perfect for keeping wet, snowy boots and jackets from dirtying the rest of the Barn. We then made our way up the impressive spiral staircase, and arrived on the first floor.
WOW! Immediately we were blown away by the beautiful views from the huge glass windows surrounding the entire room. There is a nice size fireplace with a built in pizza stove built into the chimney as well. Looking around, we were thrilled to find a huge dining table, a perfectly functional kitchen (we LOVE to cook) and wet bar with a large wine fridge. Everything was in spotless condition, and the pictures on the website don't even do justice to just how charming the barn truly is.
Making your way up to the bedroom, we were again blown away by the breath taking views from the beautiful large windows surrounding the room. The bed was unbelievably comfortable, and with the presence of a gas fireplace, we knew we had picked exactly the getaway we needed for nothing but a romantic, relaxing getaway. Then, we saw the bathroom. A massive stone tub/spa with a waterfall like shower fixture and steam feature is hands down the showstopper of the Barn. If you like soaking in a bath, this is not something to be missed. The only thing we found to be a little less traditional, was the absence of a door to the actual bathroom itself. However, it is designed well enough that the sink, mirror and shower almost feel like they are in a different room than the bathroom.
All in all, we couldn't have been any happier with Witten Barn. It is absolutely perfect for a romantic, relaxing getaway!
