  • Barn with lots of character


    Understanding I was staying at the barn to get away and focus on work, the area was beautiful. I enjoyed looking out of the large sliding glass doors to the stream and meadow beyond. Neighbors were a bit noisy but most people would not be working and staying at the barn all the time. The hosts were VERY responsive. Nice place and very convenient to the lake and beautiful mountains!

    Our family very much enjoyed "Da Barn"! It was neat to learn about the age of the barn and what great condition it is in considering the age. It was the perfect combination of cabin settle in nature, but still having all the great advances of modern ease. Wifi was great! Even though it's about a 15 minute drive up the mountain, all the roads were safe and newer.

  • Majestic and welcoming


    After traversing some amazing twisty roads. We arrived to our quaint 300+ year old barn. We were welcomed by the local Llama across the babbling creek. Took a bit to find the lockbox for the key. Once we went inside it felt welcoming and cozy. Just enough room for my family to spend Thanksgiving there. We turned on the heaters, which quickly warmed the entire house. We were a bit toasty. I filled the bird feeder, in which drew more of the cute wildlife over to say hi to us. Like the birds, squirrels and chipmunk. Neighbors were great. Cashiers is just under 20min away but the real treat is shopping in Highlands. The home has plenty of windows/sliding doors, most of which do not have curtains. Tub/shower takes you back to when times were simpler. We had rain one night. The sound of the raindrops on the metal roof were tranquil. Plenty of yard for the dog to run wild but also has a designated spot for them to go potty. It’s fantastic for a family, or a romantic getaway. Highly recommend a stay here.

  • Very enjoyable


    We loved our stay at “Da Barn”. Great spot for family vacation in the mountains. The house is very comfortable but could use a deep clean. There is no air conditioning so having screens and fans is important. Many windows and patio doors had broken screens or none at all. The ceiling fans all need balancing, they wobble even at slow speeds. The owners left so much food In the freezer that it all came tumbling out when we opened he door. There is considerable road noise and the showers don’t work well, but the bathtubs are amazing and the well water is wonderful. I would still stay here again. The house is charming despite the abov complaints.
