Historic Stillwater Barn Loft on Waterfalls and Nature
average rating of 5.0 based on 5 reviews

An incredible setting for some much-needed R&R

  • 5 of 5

The minute I stepped out if the car, I knew I'd made the right choice. I could hear the gentle sound of the brook and smell the freshness of the air.

Deb came out to greet me as soon as let her know I arrived. She gave me a tour, and provided me with lists of restaurants and points of attraction in the area. Knowing that I am a photography buff, she pointed out some other areas for good photo ops.

The living space is cozy, but it's all the space you'll need to kick back and relax. There are many seating places outside, my favorite being the Adirondack chairs by the side of the brook. The breakfast that she served was incrredible--everything is organic and delicious.

My stay was fabulous, and I am already planning to come back next year!

Birthday Weekend

  • 5 of 5

we had such a wonderful weekend thanks to our host Deb! Everything was perfect. We spent a lot of time at the water enjoying this haven of privacy, peacefulness, and beauty'! The loft was very comfortable and Deb was so helpful when we were looking for a great restaurant or the best antique shops in the area. What a treat to get up both mornings to the most delicious organic breakfast ever! We can't thank Deb enough for sharing her little piece of Heaven with us, I hope we can go back soon!!!

My kids and I had a great time at this unique rental. Deb was a great host and was very accommodating. The room was very comfortable and the grounds were even better than the pictures. We can't wait to one back I'm the summer.

Wonderful! A magical place

  • 5 of 5

Incredible property and host. The Barn Loft is really comfortable and cosy, in an absolutely beautiful location. Even better than the pictures. We truly unwound and relaxed. Deb was very responsive and provided an awesome organic breakfast every morning. She also has great recommendations on where to eat, hike and visit locally. Our stay was too short - we didn't want to leave - and need to find an excuse to go back :)

Quiet Enjoyable Stay Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Deb was awesome. She was quick to respond to emails and texts and was an all around pleasure to deal with. This property is new to Homeaway but very popular on Airbnb. The Barn Loft is exactly as described. Beautiful location and close to hiking and fishing. Deb has many recommendations that will help you find fishing spots easily. I look forward to staying again!

P.S. Organic breakfast is provided each day!!
