  • Good place but with challenges


    Heating and hot water tank were not working when we arrived. Hosts did respond promptly to our calls re these issues. They were handled the second day of our 4 night stay. Luckily the bedrooms had individual heaters but showers were cold or postponed the first morning.

    No TV but a projector and large movie screen instead. But previous guests had (apparently) disconnected the projector from the computer and power to connect other devices instead (game equipment?) and changed the sound to a different channel. With the computer up against the wall, could not see these disconnections. The hosts could not help remotely, but told us about the previous guest family with kids and said OK to pull the desk the computer was on out from the wall to look. We were then able to reconnect the projector and set the amp to the right speakers and we were then good to go. Checking these things between guests would be helpful.

    Last, a stain was found on a carpet in one bedroom after our departure that the hosts said had a chemical smell, like iodine. Took me a while to confirm that one guest (adult male) who was traveling after our gathering, was the one who used that room. He confirmed he had nothing like that in the room. Given the makeup of the previous guests with kids, suspect that stain was not noticed by cleaners between guests.

    Pretty setting. Good for larger gathering but only 2 of five baths are on level with 6 bedrooms. 3 on main floor with one bedroom. Good for an event.

  • Perfect!


    We stayed at the property for our annual family trip. The barn had plenty of space for everyone, very clean, quiet and just what we needed. It was perfect!

    We had a wonderful time! It was great to find a property that was able to sleep 23 family members with plenty of bathrooms! A bonus was that it was located within two and a half hours for the majority of us! The kids and teens had so much fun playing pool, ping pong, and hide and seek!
