Guestbook comments from the manager

We have been using this facility to host high end customers and guests for some time and just keep coming back. The "WOW" factor there is impressive from the time you enter the building until the time you depart. Every time I bring guests to stay at "The Barn", their reaction is extremely positive. When they see the meticulous care taken in reconstruction, the attention to detail and general feel of the property, they just gaze for a minute or two upon entry and say "wow".



This place is a great destination for families, friends and groups. I can without hesitation recommend Festive Resorts "The Barn" to anyone looking for a classy, comfortable and relaxing stay.

Exceeded expectations for a winter week-end

  • 5 of 5

This refurbished barn was exactly as advertised. Our group of ten adults enjoyed the huge fireplace, comfortable beds and large chef kitchen. The well-equipped kitchen had everything we needed, and we especially liked the long dining table that seated our entire group and the Wolf range. The giant refrigerators and freezers made food preparation very easy. There are two dishwashers, so clean-up was very easy. We unique decorations and terrific lighting made this a very memorable stay. There is plenty of room for a large group. Very close to the Ice Age Trail and Hartman's Creek State Park.

An amazing place for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 18 was very comfortable here with the little apartment. The barn was much larger than any of us had expected. We had plenty of room for everyone to have privacy and a wonderful area to gather in and to eat together. We enjoyed the fire pit and the yard as well. My only complaint is that some of the things the description said were available were nonexistent - no beach towels, no laundary soap, a broken iron and no ironing board. This would not have been a problem except that the description said they were available so we did not bring them.

Great view but lack of contact when needed

  • 3 of 5

We had a great time over 4th of July with family ranging from 4 years old to 65 and our 4 legged friends! Lots to do in the area and plenty of room for the group so we all had our own space! A few downfalls while we were there: the pictures show outside toys for youngsters and a craft table/area however they are not there—pictures should be updated. Smoke alarm in the kitchen did not have a battery, which could be a concern. We also had issues with the downstairs toilet and attempted to call the owner of the site, not once but twice on two different dates. In addition the onsite caretaker left mid-week so we had no one to assist. To date, even after our vacation we haven’t heard back from them, which is disappointing.

Owner's Response: Hello and thank you for your comments. As with any large property, sometimes we have minor items that need to be addressed and we these have been corrected. Some of the toys were relocated to the other rental area's and we have replaced these items over the weekend. Our onsite manager had an emergency to attend to and apologize if there was any incovenience. Thank you again for your comments and have a great Summer. Mike

The Barn is better than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 16 had plenty of room! The main front room has plenty of seating for everyone. The kitchen is well supplied so no need to bring anything except the food. The beds are all comfortable. The gates were there to put up by the stairs and off the deck so adults could be worry-free.

Hartman Creek State Park is a short drive. The entire family loved the beach! Kayaks, paddle boats, paddle boards and mai mats are available to rent.

Would definitely go there again!

Just like Stepping into a Pinterest Post

  • 4 of 5

Breathtaking- the house is as awesome (we’ll better) than the photos.

Yes, like someone else has posted, it is next to a festival food plant and the farmhouse is right there but you’d never know because all the windows and the deck face the open field. It’s the least of your worries in my opinion.

The galley kitchen was everything we needed for our Cinco de Mayo taco bar spread. Slept everyone in our group wonderfully and allowed for plenty of private room space.

Any areas of opportunity I would offer would be to maybe have the place “spring cleaned” once a year? There was a lot of standing dust. On top of the speakers and lights as you look over from the balcony, under the cow chairs, tables and chairs, on top of side tables and in areas where you pull a towel from under the sink.

Otherwise I would say it’s the bomb. We will be coming back for sure!
