Just as promised and then some!

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful and the property even more tranquil than anticipated. The open layout, the fully stocked kitchen, the quiet of the mountain and the warmth of the fireplaces made it the perfect weekend winter getaway. Rita was proactive, helpful and response, making her the perfect host. I would comfortably recommend a stay in the barn to anyone looking for a nice place to get away!

Great spacious cabin in a serene place ... the perfect lodging for a ski weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My guests and I truly enjoyed our stay in the mountain barn! We were thrilled at the size of the place and all that it had to offer (ping pong table, brick oven to make pizza/calzones, spacious bedrooms, etc.). The owner made us feel welcome and we appreciated all the information given to us (welcome packet) as it answered all and any questions we could have. Although the wifi did not offer a strong connection, it was good to feel disconnected & focus on connecting, talking, and playing games with the people you are with.

As the owners mention, definitely recommend a 4WD vehicle to get up to the place if snow is predicted as the dirt road is quite steep.

The place is only a 15 min drive to Bellearye ski resort, which is where we skiied all weekend. I would definitely recommend this place for a ski week/weekend and could see it being a great place for the spring & summer as well!

Take me back to barn

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I left the house today and if you had seen our sad faces before we left, you would never forget them. It was amazing two days, we are still excited,can't even talk about the past two days just looking to pictures and missing the house already.

I am very satisfied with the hospitality of the owner Rita and her husband. They were extremely helpful and very kind to us and thank you so much to make our weekends so beautiful. We turned off all the cells and laptops for that two days so we had more time to speak to each other , that was great.

We are already planning next weekends in summer and looking forward. Thank you so much. I love and miss the barn already
