The Barn in Tivoli is a super cozy & unique home for your country pleasure.
It's an easy 5-minute walk to the charming Hudson Valley Village of Tivoli where you can start the day with fresh baked brioches, have brunch at Murray's and get an Ayurvedic treatment in the afternoon. In the evening, after a nutritious farm-to-table dinner, catch a theater performance at Tangent, dance at Kaatsbaan or opera at The Fisher Center for the Performing Arts (a stunning Frank Gehry building). End the night at Traghaven, the whiskey pub, and if you are lucky, it'll be Karaoke Night!
If staying in is what you need, the Barn is a relaxing retreat with wood burning stove, old piano, a soaking tub, a curious library, back deck, grill, fire pit and a rustic kitchen equipped for your cooking pleasure. Take a walk to the stream or have a picnic by the pond.
For the adventurous guests, Tivoli Bays is a great setting for kayaking, paddle boarding, bike riding or just a hike on your own two feet. Our area also features beautiful roads for bike riding.

Unique, 4-season rustic barn, with open, loft-like floor plan. Lovingly renovated with the work of numerous local artisans, surrounded by gardens and green, a 4-acre oasis with pond, stream, small yoga deck, 3 fire pits and picnic table by the pond. The Barn is a fun, charming, rustic shelter and provides a totally unique experience for friends and family. It's a communal space that brings people closer together. 'It was like a big sleepover' says one of our illustrious guests.
In the cold months, it heats with a highly efficient wood burning stove. We provide all the wood. The Barn will be fully heated once you arrive!
In the Summer the Barn cools down with 2 window ACs and you cool down at the spacious, private outdoor shower while gazing at the trees and sky.
The Barn sleeps 6 guests in 5 beds; 1 king, 2 queens and 2 twins. The 5 beds are distributed in 3 different levels; ground, second floor and loft.
**IMPORTANT** The Barn is a loft and bedrooms are not separated by doors. They do have privacy curtains and their own cozy nooks.

I created this room thinking of guests who come to the Barn to attend weddings in the area. Includes a vintage dresser, hangers and mirror enclosed by linen curtains.

Brand new, fun & colorful seating and dinning for cookouts from spring to fall. Large gas grill and fire pit are your outdoor cooking options.
Open May to October
Wonderful, spacious, private shower on the deck! In the summer you might find yourself taking multiple showers throughout the day.
The fire pit located in the Barn's backyard is for your exclusive use.
*shared with house*
The property features over four acres of forest bordered by Stony Creek. In the center, there's an open meadow with a pond. We placed a beautiful, custom, cedar picnic table there, right next to a second fire pit. It's a wonderful place to watch nature and enjoy beautiful days.
If you walk along the creek you will get to two different spots where you can access the water. One spot has a pebble beach with a semi deep spot where you can dip in. The other entrance features a third fire pit. We have placed a small wooden platform by the creek, ideal for meditating, practicing yoga or just watching and listening to the water.
Our house neighbors the Barn. Occasionally, when we travel, we rent it out to 1 or 2 couples. Both structures are private and sit around 75 feet away from each other and 100 feet away from Broadway.

Tivoli is one of the hidden gems of the Hudson Valley and an easy 5 minute walk from the Barn.
It serves a big portion of the Bard University population - students & professors are often seen walking around the village at the coffee shop and bakery. Tivoli is also home many young families who moved up from NYC + BK and old residents including world famous artists.
Tivoli is a tiny village, friendly & quaint. It's centrally located between Rhinebeck and Hudson with Germantown and Red Hook along the way. It's an awesome spot to explore the Mid-Hudson Valley - from farms to old mansions, from antiquing to watching cabaret at the Spiegeltent or high-end performances at The Fischer Center for the Performing Arts. Visit the beautiful Olana sitting atop a hill with majestic views of the Hudson, catch experimental music and art at the Basilica and shows at Helsinki. Not to mention all the superb dining options in Tivoli and all the way from Rhinebeck to Hudson.
