Perfect family reunion location

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family, 15 of us ages 7-89 gathered here for a reunion. Michelle was very helpful before and during our stay answering all questions promptly. This place is not just a house, it is an experience. The grounds are beautiful. The dining room held our whole group for meals. We had a fire nightly, played cut throat wiffle ball in the field by the fire pit, cards on the covered deck. I would not change a thing. The bedrooms all sleep 4 very comfortably, large rooms, dreamy beds and each with own bath and shower. A perfect combination of rustic, but meticulously clean and modern amenities. I am hoping to get the other half of my family to reunite there at some point!

Absolutely PERFECT Catskills weekend.

  • 5 of 5

I organized a (redefined) bachelorette weekend at the Carriage House at the Turquoise Barn, and I cannot say enough about our stay and experience.

From an organizers standpoint, Michelle and her family were incredible hosts - quick to respond, very clear about all policies, happy to answer questions and offer recommendations for nearby activities/meals, and very attentive to our overall enjoyment & satisfaction.

The house itself was lovely as could be - very well stocked kitchen, comfortable sleeping quarters, plenty of bathrooms, and delightfully decorated. We made use of the small grill (we also brought our own), the fire pit, and spent a lot of time appreciating the surroundings. I know I can confidently speak on behalf of all 14 of us when I say that we were honestly BEYOND pleased -- and the gal we were celebrating has been simply glowing this past week -- just overjoyed at the entire experience.

Also impressive how spacious and comfortable the house was -- we oftentimes has many bodies in the kitchen, and always had a lot of people at the table -- we never once felt crowded or confined!

We enjoyed a truly lovely Sunday brunch at Table on Ten nearby, took a day trip to Bellayre Beach for some (simple) boating and relaxing, and were treated to a soundtrack from a small reggae music festival that the grounds were hosting -- but mostly we spent lots of quality time together in and around the house -- which perfectly welcomed that sort of thing!

A peaceful and joyful addition to my summer -- Thank you Michelle & co!! Highly & enthusiastically recommend!
