The Barn is extremely cool. Great for gathering.

  • 4 of 5
The site is really peaceful and private. The main room has great views out toward the setting sun - a lovely way to end each day. The Barn itself is wonderfully rustic with all the charm of a barn. The bedrooms are all unique and interesting. Great for families and big groups of friends. A truly wonderful get away spot. Nearby Roxbury is small but charming with Kirkside Park as an added great find.

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!

Owner's Response: Thank you Jesse!
Many asked us if we have air conditions. We love the fact that we don't need one to feel cool and comfortable there! It's good to be fully embraced by nature. We are pleased that your group enjoyed your stay and we look forward to your return!
Best,
Rita

Wonderful weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We had a get together with a group of friends for a wonderful weekend in early May at the barn. The property is beautiful with great views from the front deck. The house was much larger than anticipated, and more than enough room for a group of 14 adults. We especially enjoyed making pizzas in the pizza oven, and I loved the relaxing soaking tub in the master bath.

We will definitely try and come back one day!

Away From It All

  • 5 of 5
I recently rented this barn with a group of friends for a weekend away from the city, and boy did we get what we were looking for. In addition to (as cover in the previous reviews) the barn being beautifully designed and plenty big for our group of 14 people, the area where the barn is located is so far off the beaten path you will forget where the beaten path ends... The feeling of tranquility came over me as soon as I entered the barn and opened the large sliding doors.. Somewhere between the view from the porch and the smell of the trees all of my troubles melted away. We had an amazing weekend exploring the mountain (the hiking trail was surprisingly legit) as well as the views from the top... We communally cooked meals (including using the very awesome pizza oven) and had such a great weekend none of us wanted it to end.

I would recommend this barn to any big group that wants quiet and privacy as well as nature to enjoy. I plan to make a similar trip next year!

Excellent For A Long Weekend

  • 4 of 5
This barn was amazing. Plenty of room for a large group to stay in the house, with lots of options to keep you entertained. The owners also made the whole rental process go very smoothly and were always quick to respond to any questions that came up. Can't thank them enough.

Owner's Response: Subsequently, we found out from the renter that the missing star is because they only can get HBO and video on demand channels during their stay. We would like to highlight that this is definitely the challenges we face being close to nature. Modern tech such TV, Satellite internet, land line phone and etc. are from time to time not perfectly functional. We hope these challenges would push our renters closer to nature :-) and we would appreciate your understanding about these unexpected service interruptions.

A magical breathtaking experience

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I couldn't believe our eyes when we walked in. This propriety is magical, extremely spacious and bright.. you can tell that the owners care deeply about the place!
We celebrated our wedding in that occasion, a small intimate ceremony, and I couldn't imagine it being more perfect than that. We brought a bunch of decorations and it transformed into a fairytale barn.
Everything was spotless clean. In the kitchen you could be working in 6-8 people and still not bump into one another. It's full of dishes, pots, pans, bowls, trays, and many things that you didn't even know you could need! ;-)
The owners were really nice since the first email conversation, and tried to accommodate all our needs.
We had the most wonderful weekend, I hope you will have a great time too.

Owner's Response: we are pleased to offer our place to you and being part of your wonderful life as married couple.
our barn just went through a deep cleaning before your group. it is hard to keep it spotless clean all year round but our cleaning crew do try their best.
we are very lucky to have wonderful guests like you and appreciate your efforts in keeping our barn in good shape for future visitors :-)
thank you!
