                              The Barn is a 10 minute drive from Minnewaska State Park and Mohonk Preserve, which have some of the best rock climbing available nationally. This area also features excellent hiking and mountain biking opportunities.


                              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!
