Quiet, new, well appointed.
Off the beaten path, in the country, you will need a GPS to find this place. The converted 1880s barn is very new. Yes, an oxymoron to be sure. The construction and finishings were very modern, so you did not feel the age of the building at all. The vaulted ceilings caused terrible acoustics such that the guy watching tv could hear the people in the kitchen better than the tv that was blaring.
The kitchen was very well stocked and made cooking a breeze.
One person did not find the bed comfortable but I was ok with mine. The linens were hotel grade, so very nice.
The bathrooms were wonderful, but needed furniture for items traveling guests need. Since pedestal sinks are installed, there are no counters. We ended up having to bring a small table upstairs to hold our toiletries bags.
The two bedrooms on the ground floor lacked any storage for clothing or suitcases. The upstairs room has a nice clothing bar and shelf, plus chest of drawers.
We loved that the new kittens made their first appearance upon our arrival. We were able to play with them a bit on our last day, that was an unexpected treat.
The biggest issue we struggled with was no internet. I knew wifi was not provided, but since we had a hot spot I thought we could muddle through. But, for some reason it would not work at the house! It worked when we drove away, but not at the house. No internet is quite difficult for people trying to plan what do, where to go the next day & where to eat while on vacation.
