About Ali Safayan
I have lifestyle medical practice in NW Washington, DC. My dear friend Gaby owned the barn and I enjoyed many delicious dinners, delightful getaways and spiritual retreats at the barn prior to her untimely death in May 2011 at the age of 50. I purchased and renovated the barn in Gaby's memory, and honor her legacy by continuing to provide the barn as a destination where family and friends can gather for special occasions. The barn is also a unique backdrop for educational, health and spiritual retreats. As a physician one of my many concerns is our reliance on the grid and the damage it is clearing doing to our society. It is for this reason that I DO NOT provide internet, WiFi, cable, TV, radio or anything else which maintains our connection to the grid. The ultimate purpose of the barn is to provide a grid free environment where people can directly reconnect through verbal and visual communication to one another, without electronic interference and misunderstanding.
Ali Safayan purchased this Barn in 2012
Why Ali Safayan chose Knoxville
There are many wonderful properties from which guests can choose but few can match the barn's energy. The barn is a perfect balance of vintage charm and modern convenience. It is easily accessible, located in a private natural setting. It is beautifully appointed, spacious, relaxed, calm, quiet, and clean. When you add the comfortable grand deck, hot tub, infrared sauna and fire pit, guest have little preventing them from creating memories that last a lifetime.
What makes this Barn unique
The barn is centered perfectly among the areas abundant out door activities, historic sites, and points of interest. It is an ideal destination for those wanting to escape the daily pressures of modern life and get off the grid. To that end I DO NOT provide internet, WiFi, cable, TV, radio etc. If these are modern convenience you or your group requires PLEASE DO NOT RENT THE BARN.

Lovely stay for a weekend with friends
The barn proved to be the perfect place for our women’s retreat of 9 close friends over a long weekend. The common areas were perfect for relaxing, catching up, and enjoying one another’s company. The hot tub was a big added bonus. The kitchen was gorgeous and had all everything we needed - we ended up bringing in a private chef one night and the space is perfect for it. Ali was always responsive and helpful to my requests and questions leading up to our weekend. Thank you for providing a beautiful space for us!
We had such a great time staying at Ali's barn! He was extremely easy to communicate with and his property is incredible for a scenic and relaxing getaway! I would highly recommend.
Peaceful and perfect for a large famiky
Quiet, clean, peaceful. Perfect retreat close to the city.
Thank you Bruce. I’m glad you enjoyed your stay!
Wonderful weekend getaway
Our stay at the barn was wonderful! It was the perfect place to house a ladies get together weekend. The common space area (kitchen, dining, and living room) provided a perfect opportunity to spend time together as a group. We would have loved to spend more time than we had available to use the outdoor area-- it was lovely.
The barn was clean and well maintained and Ali was very responsive to my communication. Highly recommend!
Hi Kara, thank you for your kind review. It was a pleasure working with you can you group.
All the best. Ali
Charming, cozy, great location
The remodeled barn is such a beautiful space. The kitchen is massive and great for group cooking. The deck with hot tub and lights got a lot of use. It was so convenient to have bathrooms for every bedroom. The house is close to the cute downtown area of Harper Ferry, Harpers Ferry Brewing, many vineyards, and hiking.
I’m so glad you enjoyed your time at the barn! Hopefully we’ll see you again. All the best. Ali
Nice getaway for groups
The barn is a cool place. There's a lot of it under construction, but it doesn't get in the way of the area you have to inhabit. The deck is huge and great place to hang out, especially with the grill and hot tub to take advantage of. The kitchen is also very spacious and nicely done, with plenty of dishes and cookware, etc. I rented the barn for a relaxing bachelor's weekend for 8 people total, and there were beds for everyone and enough space that it never felt cramped. I also had just a quick couple questions for Ali when we first checked in and he responded within minutes of my asking and even called a left me a voicemail while I was at the grocery store picking up some food to grill, so Ali is very attentive and communicative and I really appreciated that! And not having/offering internet is fine, but the cell service is also very bad, so stuff like streaming music may be challenge. Overall a very relaxing weekend in a great area for people who like outdoor things, as you have lots of parks and trails and Harper's Ferry just a few miles away. Thanks Ali for offering your getaway for others to get away too!
I’m so glad your group had a great time at the barn. Thanks for taking good care of it so others can enjoy it as well!
