Unique Property - Great Getaway!
When we arrived at the Baby Barn, we were very pleased with the beautiful location. Looking out the kitchen window, you can see mountains and ski slopes. The home itself is in great condition, was very clean, and provided everything we needed for a relaxing vacation. Cooking in the kitchen was a delight - the stove is a professional grade gas range. The house has a funky lodge feel - unique pieces were abound and we found new decor to admire daily. We loved the book we found which was filled with homes Peter, the owner, had created. He is an architect and Baby Barn is but one of his amazing creations. Reading that he built the fireplace himself, by hand, had us admiring how talented he is.
The home does have television (some reviews said it doesn't) and internet was available as well. Our dogs loved romping through the snow-filled meadow and relaxing on the comfy pet bed in the house. There were even dog bowls in case you leave yours at home. There is a grocery store only a few minutes from the house and you're a short drive away from some great little towns. The minor issue we had with this home was the lack of curtains; the only rooms with curtains are the bedrooms. You may feel a bit "exposed" if you're one to keep your curtains closed!
When were were driving home, wishing we could just head back into the mountains, we realized our 3 1/2 year old daughter left two of her favorite stuffed animals at the house. We called the caretaker (having already driven 1.5 hours) and told her about the items left behind. Our daughter's precious "friends" were back in her arms a few days later; apparently the toys were hiding in a box next to the fireplace!
Thanks so much for a wonderful getaway. We loved our stay at the baby barn. Sledding, cozy nights by the fireplace, and great meals around your table won't be forgotten!
