Motivated by his love of the Catskill region’s natural beauty and his commitment to promoting sustainability as a way of life, Tripp Bassett passionately devoted three years to restoring the historic barn into an idyllic country sanctuary. An avid devotee of architecture and interior design, he used his professional eye for detail and aesthetics as well as the skills and talents of his renowned team of collaborators to bring to life his vision of Barn on the Pond. A native of Roswell, New Mexico, he spent his childhood exploring his mother’s garden, a place where his appreciation for the wonders of the outdoors was born and nurtured. Over the years, this matured and developed into an environmental awareness that led him to follow the ecological concept of Seven Generation Sustainability, which urges the current generation to live in a way that benefits the seventh generation into the future – something he was conscious of in all aspects of designing the Barn and its property. It is also through this movement and way of living that he developed his strong sense of community and collaboration.

Tripp is a highly creative and innovative graphic designer based in New York City whose eponymous firm, Tripp Bassett Design, is known in the industry for excellence in broadcast, print and package design; and strategic campaigns for branding, advertising, logo, and Web interface development. Bank of America, Bantam Books, Breyer’s Ice Cream, Continental Airlines, Pitney Bowes, Scholastic and Showtime have been among his major clients.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing time at The Barn on the Pond! From the start Tripp, the owner, and Fia were beyond helpful and accommodating. The house is beautiful and so comfortable with a wonderful great room that was perfect for group dinners. The kitchen is by far the best kitchen I have ever worked in. It was very snowy when we were there, but we would love to return when we could enjoy the beautiful property. All in all, highly recommended!

Barn On The Pond is truly an incredible place..

  • 5 of 5
We came for the weekend with 14 of our friends..We literally had one of the best weekends of my life. This is not an ordinary place..The Barn itself is unique and pretty but the inside has such a tasteful decor. Its a cozy sanctuary that you never want to leave.. The home has all the amenities that you could want-and is outfitted with all kitchen supplies for hugh feasts.. The fire pit is an added plus as its fun to curl up with your friends and sit by the fire.
I know this all might sound like one big advertisement for this barn-but once you stay-Youll want to exclamation marks..Its just a wonderful place

Amazing and Memorable Weekend at Barn on the Pond

  • 5 of 5
I sought a rustic and elegant location to stay and host a family gathering. Barn on the Pond exceeded our expectations in every way. The entire process of booking, getting all our questions answered regarding amenities, made it easy for us to choose this place.

We arrived early on Friday to prepare and as each guest arrived, we quietly waited for their exclamations of pleasure at the beautiful and comfortable layout of the space. A lot of thought was put into creating a space that was a both an elegant, relaxing retreat and a superb place to entertain a large group of 16 for dinner on Saturday. The kitchen.....oh, the kitchen!!! It was my favorite place, a dream kitchen where preparing meals and interacting with others was such a pleasure.

Despite every bed in the house being taken, we never felt that we were crowding each other. I was part of the overflow of guests that slept outside in the Airstream which was a surprisingly comfortable experience. There were also numerous intimate spaces, both inside and out, if anyone needed a quiet moment away from others.

A fantastic time was had by all, including the kids and my grand daughter insists that we come back again, which we most certainly will.

So thank you Tripp, for providing a wonderful space where we created an unforgettable occasion for love, laughter and togetherness.

Absolutely Beautiful!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our time here was AMAZING!!!! Highest marks all around. A beautiful barn and a perfect setting for a birthday weekend with great friends. Huge and room for all, the massive main area was a perfect setting for an extended weekend of hanging out by the fireplace, chillin with the peeps and eating great food. All of us love to cook and the giant kitchen was a star. We were there in January, a bit too cold for pond action but a great view just the same. Thank you for putting such love into making a great retreat. Can't wait to make our way back.

Barn on the Pond is absolutely beautiful!!! We had such an amazing time while staying there. The open layout is perfect and the kitchen, WOW WOW WOW, I dream of having a kitchen like this to cook in all the time. There's an awesome soaking tub!
The fireplaces and heated floors kept us nice and toasty. The pond and the grounds are stunning and the house is private. I look forward to returning to Barn on the Pond and would highly recommend it to everyone.

Something about this place!

  • 5 of 5
The first time I stayed at this property, I thought that I could never recreate the amazing time spent there. Now I have stayed here three times, and am consistently blown away by the atmosphere of this home. There is so much attention to detail that with every turn, you are delighted by yet another charming or gorgeous thing. Anyone you invite here will feel the same. It's difficult to find a space that is as unique and beautiful as this one. It is at once both luxurious and comfortable.

Whether you're planning an event, or sneaking away for a personal escape, the space is very accommodating to whatever your plans may be. Times spent at the beautiful sunken fire pit are sure to be remembered.. As are the meals cooked and shared in this dream kitchen. Thirty foot peaked ceilings in the main room of this house give the sensation of endless space. Take a walk through the wild flower garden. Spend some time in the round extra-large hammock. Or simply enjoy the view of sloping mountains from the wrap around balcony. If it's chilly, don't fret, just sit by the outdoor fireplace up there (it turns on with the flick of a light switch). Also, there is a surplus of comfortable sleeping arrangements throughout the house. In the summer the barn is airy and cool, and in the winter perfectly toasty and warm (the heated floors are a great touch).

The property has all those modern amenities that we might not want to get away from including: speedy internet, an amazing sound system, a huge television with cable and a DVD player, plus the ability to hook up computers/iphones etc. to just about everything. You'll be happy with the set up.

While there isn't much reason to leave the grounds, Woodstock is a 5 minute drive down the road. There you can stock up on farmer fresh produce and meats, or enjoy a meal at one of the many wonderful local restaurants. There is a great little flea market on weekends. If you are a nature lover, there is river tubing and hiking available nearby. Opus 40, one of the largest Earth work sculpture gardens, is around the block and worth a visit.

Each time I have stayed here, the house and grounds have been in impecable condition. The house is always tidied, and with beautiful presentation.

I hope you will get a chance to make some memories here. I truly treasure mine.
