BARN DESCRIPTION //
Unique four season rustic barn, with open, loft-like floor plan. Lovingly renovated with the work of numerous local artisans, surrounded by gardens and green, a 4.5 acre oasis with pond, stream, small yoga deck, 3 fire pits and extra large picnic table.
It heats with a highly efficient wood burning stove. We provide the wood. The first load is neatly stacked inside for your convenience.
In the Summer the Barn cools down with 2 window ACs and you cool down at the spacious, private outdoor shower while gazing at the trees and sky.
The Barn is a fun, charming, rustic shelter and provides a totally unique experience for friends and family. It's a communal space that brings people closer together. "It was like a a big sleepover" says one of our illustrious guests.
If you are looking to be separated from your friends/family in your own bedroom box, I apologize, the Barn is not for you.
The Barn sleeps 6 to 8 guests in 5 beds; 1 king, 2 queens and 2 twins. The 5 beds are distributed in 3 different levels; ground, second floor and loft.
IMPORTANT // The Barn is a loft and bedrooms are not separated by doors. They do have privacy curtains and their own cozy nooks. The Barn has 1 bathroom with a claw foot tub and an outside shower from May to October.
GROUND FLOOR //
Nook by the piano: thick queen futon mattress on wooden frame. This bed can be used for sleeping or as a day bed.
SECOND FLOOR //
King Nook // Brand new plush king coil mattress on wooden bed frame. Organic sheets.
Twin Trundle Nook // Metal trundle bed with coil mattresses. Great for kids or couples as one of the beds can either be left low or raised to match the regular height. Organic sheets.
Three queen futon mattresses stacked on the floor for extra comfort. Organic sheets. View of the creek.
Rustic kitchen nicely equipped for your cooking pleasure. Plates, cups, mugs, utensils & pans included. Nothing too fancy. Zub-Zero fridge, convection oven, cooktop, large sink. No dishwasher.
We also have a brand new grill on the deck just outside the kitchen. Guests have also used the fire pit to cook corm, potato, meats and 'smores, naturally ; ).
Rustic bathroom with claw foot tub with shower hookup, sink, toilet, mirror, toiletries. Bath towels provided. Bring your creek/outdoor towels.
We have a spacious dressing room (enclosed by curtains) with a large mirror and a steamer. I created this room thinking of all the guests who come to the Barn to attend weddings in the area.
All sorts of books - I can't even explain what we have on our bookshelf. I am sure you will find something curious. Enjoy it at the hammock.
Brand new, fun & colorful seating and dinning for summer cookouts! Large gas grill and fire pit are your outdoor cooking options.
Open May to October
Wonderful, spacious, private shower on the deck! In the summer you might find yourself taking multiple showers throughout the day!
PROPERTY / 4.5 acres
If you walk along the creek you will get to two different spots where you can access the water. One spot has a pebble beach with a deep spot where you can dip in. The other entrance has a small wooden platform ideal for meditating, practicing yoga or just watching nature.
The property also features a pond where we have placed a beautiful custom cedar table. Feel free to head down there for a picnic!

My wife, 6 week old son, and I recently came up to the Barn for a little getaway from city life. We loved it! The barn is so warm, welcoming, and cozy. We had a wonderful time tromping through the snow, walking to town, and just sitting by the fire and enjoying some quiet time together. Just a fabulous experience.

I have stayed at the Barn a few times now. The quiet always manages to take my breath away. I actually feel a physiological change within minutes of arriving. I think it's maybe my blood pressure just lowering or something. Just 30 feet from the barn or so, there's a gorge that drops down to a stream you can swim in, and a platform where you can set up chairs, or in my case, a meditation pillow. The gurgle of the stream helps lull me off to sleep. The little town is just over the bridge across the stream, and there's a few restaurants, a great little coffee shop, a bakery, and a relaxed dive bar with a backyard.
I did a lot of mountain biking during this last visit. There was a very easy 6 mile rail trail that runs through some deep woods & ends at a waterfall where I took a swim. Then there was a more challenging rocky trail that was up in the mountains. And there's some amazing quiet roads in the vicinity where you can just ride a road bike & marvel at the scenery. Best way to see a place in my book.
Also went to Olana, a Persian castle built by the Hudson River School painter Frederic Church. And a fun art opening in Kingston.
I came here the first few times with a group, and it was a lot of fun. But the last two times I came alone & was so happy with the experience. Just feels like being there makes you healthy.
