About Diane Vinyard

Once a livery stable for the recuperation of run-down and injured work horses, this historic barn has been renovated and raised decades of the 'Vinyard Clan'.

Comfortable house with everything needed. Surrounding property is breathtaking...

Relaxing with large fire pit and picnic table. Grilling next to those falls is unlike anything else. Took kids to Santa’s Village which is only 30 mins away. Fantastic experience!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the positive review ! I'm not sure how/ why you encountered the neighbors, since the yard is very private, but yes, they are very friendly. Perhaps they gave you some guidance about the ATV trails.

Comfortable house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've stayed, and it was just as nice as last time. My friend and I were up for a motorcycle trip, stopping by the Highland games in Lincoln, and then a ride to the top of Mount Washington on our way to the house. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. It seems that the grill got an upgrade since the last time. The falls by the house are beautiful, especially with the foliage starting to turn.

Awesome trip!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 4 wheeling adventure. There were 7 staying at the house. It slept us all comfortably and plenty of parking for trucks, trailers, atv's and utv's. Swam in the swimming hole. We didn't get to have a fire but glad we had the option. Grill, deck and kitchen suited our needs. Wifi worked great and was necessary since none of us had very good reception. Shared access roads to Jericho and trails north for some wicked awesome trails. Hopefully, we will be back next year.
