Barn Getaway

  • 5 of 5
The seven of us enjoyed our high school reunion / get-together at Halloween-time but were a little disappointed not to see any ghosts or goblins. Although sometimes the wind high up in the rafters sounded a little spooky ...
All of us enjoyed and were pretty much amazed by the fascinating architecture. We appreciated the convenience of the appliances and wifi, hiked the trails, visited the local towns, and enjoyed the great scenery and interesting history of the reservoir. We just missed the changing leaves but we got to enjoy a couple inches of snow one morning.
Highlights included the warmth and coziness of the wood stoves, the quiet surroundings, friendly locals, and the welcoming information provided through the owners. We hope to return next year. Highly recommended.

Amazing, comfortable event venue

  • 5 of 5
We held our wedding at the barn recently, and it was exactly the right venue for us. We were able to invite friends to stay with us, the gorgeous main space held all our guests comfortably, and we took advantage of the large kitchen to cook most of our wedding meal. We and our guests loved the view and the surroundings - many people said it was one of the more beautiful places they'd ever visited. Rita and Wouter were very helpful while we were deciding to book the space and during our whole planning process. I would definitely recommend the barn for gatherings, events, or just luxurious vacation stays.

Gorgeous, peaceful, perfect

  • 5 of 5
We rented this barn for our wedding. Throughout the whole process Rita and her wonderful caretaker Jessica were more than accommodating - allowing us an initial visit to the barn to make sure it was right for our needs as well as follow up visits to show our parents and meet with a caterer. They couldn't have been more helpful, responsive, or kind.

As for the barn- it is absolutely amazing! Its a little off the beaten path, but this is what appealed to us. We had a beautiful ceremony in the cleared small meadow off to the side of the house, dinner reception under a tent in front of the house looking out over the mountains, and dancing inside. It was all perfect. We rented the barn for a full week allowing us ample time to set everything up before the wedding and then clean up at our own pace after (aside from a caterer- we did everything ourselves). Everyone was so impressed with the space and in awe of the surroundings.

We highly recommend renting the barn for your wedding or family reunion!

Owner's Response: Thank you Ben, for your kind compliments. We are very pleased to have hosted your wedding. You are absolutely right about taking time to organize your wedding and enjoy the preparation process. 85-100 is good size party too for our property. Last but most importantly, your group was well organized and relaxed about this very important event. Thank you for taking great care of our place. We look forward to having you back soon!

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!
