Wonderful week in Maine!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our time at the Barn House. The building is amazing and the furnishings are beautiful. It was very clean and well stocked. It was perfect for our family get away (9 people). There is a ton to do in the area. We went fishing, kayaking, horseback riding, hiking, and zip lining. We also went to Santa's Village and Mt. Washington, which were both less than an hour's drive. We'll definitely come back!

Such a luxurious and relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5
The Barn House was the perfect spot for a bunch of 30-something nerds to get together for a long weekend and celebrate an upcoming wedding by cooking amazing meals, playing tabletop games, lounging in the hot tub, and enjoying a keg of excellent craft beer. Everything was just as advertised, and the kitchen was incredibly well-appointed. The only thing I would do differently next time would be to order the keg from the liquor store in town since they do delivery/installation -- we had to put in the keg ourselves, which required some quick internet research and trial & error but ultimately worked out fine.

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful place to stay at. We were looking for a place large enough to accomodate 7 couples for a Zip lining getaway and The Barn House exceeded our expectations. It was spacious with a beautiful kitchen and the bedrooms were beautiful yet private. The bar was a great place to hangout with the rest of the gang and to just let loose. Location is also very convenient being close to downtown and 10 minutes away from Sunday River. Two thumbs up from this group.

Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5
We had 6 couples come to the barn house for a weekend getaway and it was simply amazing. The house was so clean and beautiful. Everything was comfortable and well stocked. All you bring is yourself and some food. You won't want to leave this place at all. We did the zip line at Sunday River too and it was great....highly recommend it. Thanks Barn House for a great weekend.

Perfect spot for a golf weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Wow, what a place! I brought a large group of golfing buddies up for a weekend of golf and relaxation - the Barn House did not disappoint!

Fabulous home, wonderfully decorated, with great proximity to Sunday River. Whether you are a skier, a golfer, or are just looking for some quiet time in the woods, this spot is perfect. The owners were gracious and helpful.

What better way to end a long day of golfing (or skiing) than gathering at the working bar for a few cocktails, then later sitting around the beautiful dining room table for a lobster dinner with a fire roaring the background.

Just a great spot. I will be back, and plan to bring my kids next time (very family-friendly).

Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5
We rented the Barn home for our daughters wedding, needing a location to accomodate the wedding party with military personnel coming from several states. Arriving Friday afternoon we found the home immaculate inside and out and every bit the mix of antique charm and modern convenience. The Owner and Property Managers were in constant contact with us during the planning of the wedding, answering any questions and offering advice.

The barn home was a spectacular back drop for the outdoor wedding and reception. Our goal was to have the wedding party together from the entire weekend celebrating and making memories that will last a life time. Thanks to the Owner and Property Managers, we were successful in both of our goals.

We would recommend renting this home for any season, it truly surpasses the photos and descriptions.
