The barn is breathtakingly massive, beautiful, and tastefully decorated. If you want a time out from your group to read a book, grab one of several sofas or comfortable chairs in the living room or sit outside and enjoy the expansive views of the catskill mountains. Given the altitude, the house is nice and cool, even in the summer. The house is completely secluded, no neighbors, and very quiet. There's a fun swing outside and a bonfire area which we thoroughly enjoyed. We'll be back...hopefully very soon! Thank you Rita for a wonderful stay!
