Sports & Adventure Activities
We had such a wonderful time staying here at the Country Barn Estate. The place was spotless clean when we arrived, everything worked just fine. We had plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably and even with their own bathrooms.
My kids had a blast outside on the playground and playing basketball on the court they have.
Our stay was so comfortable and we enjoyed ourselves very much.
It is super close to the village which was nice and super close to the market.
The only thing I would have a ( I wouldn't even call it a complaint ) I guess something I would like them to have, is a small toaster and if they would allow more people to stay instead of 16. We would have loved to have more of our family experience this wonderful trip we had with us.
Other than that we were already talking about renting it out next year.
Glad you enjoyed your stay!
The Country Barn Estate can accommodate up to 20 overnight guests, per the County of San Bernardino (not 16).
A True Paradise
There are not a lot of words to explain this wonderful place. It was more than we could have asked for. 3 very unique, separate retreats for multiple families. This place is a true treasure. A great place for family retreats for sure. We were totally blessed by coming here. Completely exceeded our expectations. Great yard for kids to play, game room, and plenty of room for everyone.
Great property for a family getaway!!!
We had a great time while staying at this property. The kids loved the swing set and the concrete driveway for them to ride scooters! The owners were very nice as well!! We will definitely be back!!!
Amazing as usual!
This property is amazing, we've stayed a few times now and we love it. So peaceful, beautiful and relaxing!!
Beautiful property. Especially fun for a family.
This is a beautiful property consisting of more than just a rental house. The grounds are safe for children to play- there even is a play structure for little ones. In the winter, there also is a sledding hill, which is also fun for children. Both houses on the property are well appointed with all the kitchen and bath necessities. The check in and check procedures are made to be most convenient, and there is always someone to call if there is a problem of any kind. We have stayed at this property three times now and have never encountered a problem. We hope to return again to this wonderful place for a family get away.
This was our 3rd visit to this home and can guarantee we'll be back for a 4th!!!
Large lawns, rustic wagons, milk cans with wild flowers.
