Favorite destination in the Catskills
The place is awesome. A group of us ski at Belleayre each year and the Barn is our favorite place to stay. Tons of room. Very clean and well maintained.
A Wonderful House and Weekend!
The Choco Barn was a wonderful time. This was our second year staying at this house and my friends and I had a great time. We loved the pizza oven. The house is great for groups and families because it is so big in size. Only 20 minutes from Bellearye mountain and 40 minutes from Hunter Mountain. We definitely plan to come back again next year!
Choco Barn - Amazing
What can I say, place is fantastic!
Magical Stay! Can't wait to come back!
We stayed for one weekend at this beautiful house and our only regret is that we did not stay longer! This place is simply unreal. The space is huge but the layout is cozy and very inviting. We loved cooking in the kitchen and eating at the tatami dining table. The rooms were spacious and the beds very comfortable. We are already planning our next trip at the Barn!
Something to note: you will need 4 wheel drive/snow tires to get to the top of the driveway when it has snowed (unless you enjoy an intensive 15 min hike in the dark!)
Several families shared this home as part of a ski trip to belleayre - it is one of the most unique properties I’ve ever stayed in ! Soaring ceilings, comfortable bedrooms cool bathrooms tons and tons of space - our group had the best time here and we would definitely stay again!
