Perfect Property for a large group
The property was absolutely perfect for our large group. There were some who wanted a quiet space for which the front house was perfect and the kids loved the loft so they could play games separate from the adults. We have done this trip annually now for over 12 years and everyone said this was there favorite place by far!
This property is great for large families. The sledding hill on property really made the trip!
A very delightful place for our large family gathering.
The new house if exceptionally comfortable and well laid out for a large group. The original house is nice and functional.
Grounds are well kept and very useable even in the winter. It would have been nice to have a list of kitchen supplies as some were not available and had to be purchased for our cooking.
Overall a wonderful stay!
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.
Large lawns, rustic wagons, milk cans with wild flowers.
