Plan your next vacation at a stunningly restored 1920's 'Historic' barn, perfect for a family looking for a fun-filled getaway, or couples who appreciate privacy, space, and the wonders of 270 acres of private woods and wildlife. Miles of country roads and pathways, passing along Hamlin Lake, ponds and wetlands, are perfect for biking, jogging and long walks.
Your shared pier (by owner) on Upper Hamlin Lake, a short walk from the Barn, is where you can swim, secure your boat, launch your kayak or just 'hang out', read a book or watch a sunset. You will enjoy the abundant wildlife including many varieties of birds that live in the forest, fields, wetlands and ponds. The wetlands can be easily accessed by kayaks for a closer look at nature.
