Kerhonkson cabin description

Located between the Catskill and Shawangunk Mountains, Blackberry Barn's unique architecture features a beautifully preserved turn-of-the-century barn renovated into lofted living and sleeping spaces.

The Barn is minutes from Mohonk Preserve and Minnewaska State Park, and a quick drive from New Paltz, Rosendale, High Falls, Woodstock, and Stone Ridge.

This beautiful area offers access to excellent outdoor activities and has many great restaurants, galleries, and shopping. The Gunks feature some of the best rock climbing in the country.

Blackberry Barn sleeps six, and is available year-round at reasonable rates.

We look forward to hearing from you!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1969

                          Why the Owner Chose Kerhonkson:
                          This property has been in our family since 1969. When our family bought the Barn it was literally a barn. All the renovations were done by our parents in the 1970s; our father is a carpenter and did all the work himself. We spent summers and weekends at the Barn growing up, and now bring our own children there! Antique stained glass windows have been installed in the lofted second floor, and were all salvaged from brownstones in Harlem and Park Slope in the 1970s and the huge fireplace was hand built by a local artist.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                          We have been renting Blackberry Barn to guests on a short term basis for 3 years now and many people have made the Barn a part of their own traditions. We welcome you to come spend some time at the barn! Its a special spot and we are sure you'll leave relaxed and rejuvenated!
