We stayed at the barn for a week at the end of September with my in-laws and our two year old daughter. Everyone had a wonderful time both hanging around the barn and ranch as well as exploring Capitol Reef and Boulder area. The baby loved the horses outside and climbing on all the comfy sofas and couches in the barn. We cooked at the kitchen and sat out looking at the stars at night. Decor of the place is rustic lux Western and very comfortable with lots of areas to lounge. Not child proofed per se but not hard to watch the baby with the open floor plan. The spiral stair case maybe a bit of a challenge for those not in good shape but was not a problem for us at all. There is also a bed downstairs if elderly and cannot climb the stairs. The Dietleins are fantastic hosts and very responsive to our questions. Looking forward to visiting again in the future.
