BARN DESCRIPTION //

Unique four season rustic barn, with open, loft-like floor plan. Lovingly renovated with the work of numerous local artisans, surrounded by gardens and green, a 4.5 acre oasis with pond, stream, small yoga deck, 3 fire pits and extra large picnic table.

It heats with a highly efficient wood burning stove. We provide the wood. The first load is neatly stacked inside for your convenience.

In the Summer the Barn cools down with 2 window ACs and you cool down at the spacious, private outdoor shower while gazing at the trees and sky.

The Barn is a fun, charming, rustic shelter and provides a totally unique experience for friends and family. It's a communal space that brings people closer together. 'It was like a a big sleepover' says one of our illustrious guests.

If you are looking to be separated from your friends/family in your own bedroom box, I apologize, the Barn is not for you.

SLEEPING LAYOUT

The Barn sleeps 6 to 8 guests in 5 beds; 1 king, 2 queens and 2 twins. The 5 beds are distributed in 3 different levels; ground, second floor and loft.

IMPORTANT // The Barn is a loft and bedrooms are not separated by doors. They do have privacy curtains and their own cozy nooks. The Barn has 1 bathroom with a claw foot tub and an outside shower from May to October.

GROUND FLOOR //

Nook by the piano: thick queen futon mattress on wooden frame. This bed can be used for sleeping or as a day bed.

SECOND FLOOR //

King Nook // Brand new plush king coil mattress on wooden bed frame. Organic sheets.

Twin Trundle Nook // Metal trundle bed with coil mattresses. Great for kids or couples as one of the beds can either be left low or raised to match the regular height. Organic sheets.

LOFT //

Three queen futon mattresses stacked on the floor for extra comfort. Organic sheets. View of the creek.

KITCHEN

Rustic kitchen nicely equipped for your cooking pleasure. Plates, cups, mugs, utensils & pans included. Nothing too fancy. Zub-Zero fridge, convection oven, cooktop, large sink. No dishwasher.

We also have a brand new grill on the deck just outside the kitchen. Guests have also used the fire pit to cook corm, potato, meats and 'smores, naturally ; ).

BATHROOM

Rustic bathroom with claw foot tub with shower hookup, sink, toilet, mirror, toiletries. Bath towels provided. Bring your creek/outdoor towels.

DRESSING ROOM

We have a spacious dressing room (enclosed by curtains) with a large mirror and a steamer. I created this room thinking of all the guests who come to the Barn to attend weddings in the area.

LIBRARY

All sorts of books - I can't even explain what we have on our bookshelf. I am sure you will find something curious. Enjoy it at the hammock.

BACK DECK

Brand new, fun & colorful seating and dinning for summer cookouts! Large gas grill and fire pit are your outdoor cooking options.

OUTDOOR SHOWER

Open May to October

Wonderful, spacious, private shower on the deck! In the summer you might find yourself taking multiple showers throughout the day!

PROPERTY / 4.5 acres

If you walk along the creek you will get to two different spots where you can access the water. One spot has a pebble beach with a deep spot where you can dip in. The other entrance has a small wooden platform ideal for meditating, practicing yoga or just watching nature.

The property also features a pond where we have placed a beautiful custom cedar table. Feel free to head down there for a picnic!

THE VILLAGE

Tivoli is one of the hidden gems of the Hudson Valley and an easy 5 minute walk from the Barn!

It serves a big portion of the Bard University population - students & professors are often seen walking around the village at the coffee shop and bakery. Tivoli is also home many young families who moved up from NYC + BK and old residents including world famous artists.

Tivoli is a tiny village, friendly & quaint. It's centrally located between Rhinebeck and Hudson with Germantown and Red Hook along the way. It's an awesome spot to explore the Mid-Hudson Valley - from farms to old mansions, from antiquing to watching cabaret at the Spiegeltent or high-end performances at the Frank Gehry Performing Arts Center. Visit Olana, catch experimental music at the Basilica Hudson and take a look at the future MAI building (Marina Abramovic Institute). Not to mention all the wonderful dining experiences all the way from Rhinebeck to Hudson.

For the adventurous guests we have Tivoli Bays (multiple entrances close to us) for kayaking, paddle boarding, bike riding or just a hike on your own two feet.

So, if you fall in love with it all, get a job at Etsy and move here! Yeah, it's a pretty amazing area.

I also love that Tivoli has one of each amenity and they are all worth checking out; remember, it's a 5 minute walk!

In the Summer, Captain Jerome will sail you from the Rhinecliff station to the dock in Tivoli. Yeah, it's amazing and special!

The closest supermarket and farm stands are about a 10 minute car ride or closer. If you do not want to bring your car you can always catch a ride with the Tivoli Car Service.

About Bruna De Araujo

My husband, our 5 year old and I live across the driveway. It is our pleasure to share this land with our guests!

I am a photo and video editor who came to NYC from Brazil in 1998. My husband is a designer & builder of all things sustainable at Ecosystems Brand. Fourteen years and a child later we felt the urge to return to the best things of our childhood; space, trees, clean air, birds & bees and farm fresh wonderfulness! So we moved up to the magical mid-husdon valley.

Bruna De Araujo purchased this barn in 2012

Why Bruna De Araujo chose Tivoli

At the very beginning of our relationship, my husband and I, rented the Barn together with four other close friends. We fell in love with the place as we fell for each other.

He then came to spend a winter at the Barn going through his old sketchbooks and looking into the future. We got married and had a child. Brooklyn was lacking what we were dreaming of and with perfect timing we received an email about the property's sale.

We looked at each other and agreed, let's buy it, and we did in April 2012.

What makes this barn unique

Rustic charm, comfort, warmth and relaxation.

The Barn is located in the heart of Dutchess County with Rhinebeck 18 min south and Hudson 18 min north. Bard is a 5 minute drive, the Village of Tivoli is a 5 minute walk.

Omega Institute is 30 minutes away.

The Hudson River with views of the Catskills is a 10 min bike ride.

The creek with the private swimming hole and yoga deck make our spot truly magnificent! Read a book by the pond under the shade of the catalpa tree, watch and hear the birds and take in the summer sun energy.

Life is good at the Barn.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"This converted barn is the perfect getaway for city-folk.



The open layout, outdoor deck, full kitchen with grill, sound system, etc. make for a great place to work, relax with friends, or even have a little barbecue and dance party. Atmosphere is easy going, comfy-cozy. Barn sleeps up to 8 people so it's great for couples, families or a small gathering of friends.



There's also plenty of privacy. Five acres of of beautiful, lush greenery and even a secluded swimming hole and waterfall.



A weekend isn't enough - planning for an extended stay end of this summer!"

Amazing time at a beautiful barn.

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely weekend at the Barn at Tivoli. The space is beautiful - cozy fires, hot cider, campfires, walks through the great foliage. We also visited last summer, and had just as great a time wading through the stream and enjoying the breezes blowing through the big barn windows. Andrew and Bruna (and Luca!) are generous hosts who love their space and want to make sure you're comfortable and happy. We can't wait to go back.

Awesome serene getaway at the Barn!

  • 5 of 5
My wife, 6 week old son, and I recently came up to the Barn for a little getaway from city life. We loved it! The barn is so warm, welcoming, and cozy. We had a wonderful time tromping through the snow, walking to town, and just sitting by the fire and enjoying some quiet time together. The barn is beautifully decorated, with a nice hang out space downstairs with a great wood stove and large open yet separate sleeping areas upstairs. We highly recommend the Barn for a serene country getaway. fabulous experience.

Awesome rustic barn in middle of Catskills

  • 5 of 5
This barn far exceeded our expectations - very comfortable with a wood-burning fireplace, and some very classy decorations on the wall (as well as art for sale). Small kitchen but with just enough space to do some real cooking. The bathroom is simply a gem, with a clawfoot tub. And there's an outdoor shower and three fire pits on the grounds, which my dog loved running around. This place is so conveniently located, a short walk into town but with almost no traffic or noise. And the hosts are very personable. Only thing lacking might be a sofa in the upstairs and some Adirondack chairs for the back deck!

Everything you need for a weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at the Barn at Tivoli for a great weekend away from the city.

The Barn beautifully combines rustic and luxurious details in a cozy, open space. The grounds are sprawling yet secluded with plenty of wooded and open areas - great for ball games, camping and fireside gatherings. My son loved walking the wooded trails, playing in the creek, catching frogs in the pond and camping out under the stars.

We also discovered that it's just a short walk to restaurants and a quick drive to the Bard campus and a number of farm stands and orchards where you can pick your own fruit. A big deal for a city kid!

The barn at Tivoli has everything you need for a weekend getaway with family and friends. And you won't find more gracious hosts than Bruna and Andrew. We'll definitely be back.

Notes:
The property is surrounded by a creek on 2 sides. We have access to it at 2 different points. One has a swimming hole where you can soak in the refreshing water and the other has a deck where 4 people can put down their mats and practice yoga or bring their meditation pillows. Very private. These are truly magical spots and 2 of the property's highlights. We also have a piano, three fire-pits in addition to the wood burning stove. The property offers privacy, yet it is a 5-minute walk to outstanding Tivoli restaurants, the post-office, library, bakery and coffee shop.
