We had a great time and the red barn was perfect for our baby shower! Would love to come again for the weekend just to get away.

😍

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you first turn down the road until you are sneaking your last peeks of it as you drive away, you are in love with the Red Barn Retreat. It is perfectly quaint and far enough from busy life but not so far as to get lost. It comfortably fit my family of 7 with room to spare honestly allowing up to 10 if need be. We stayed for two nights and there is plenty to do without needing to leave the property. From board games to horse shoes to basketball goal to fishing pond to paddle boat to 2 zip lines (one small for the kiddos, one large that goes over the pond)! There are also animals: cattle who you share some areas with! 🐮? 😄? They were docile and didn't seem to mind sharing their drinking pond with us. Very interesting. There is also a pig pen to visit. 🐷?

We closed out our second night roasting hotdogs over the fire pit and making s'mores. It also has a hammock for two to relax in and multiple porches to just sit back and enjoy the view. We love this place, Including the kids that range from young adult to nine years old. Thank you so much for the adventure! We are planning to try and come back every year! 😌?

Breathtaking Backwoods Barn Brilliance

  • 5 of 5

This little gem is something I happened upon while perusing Google Maps. I cannot say enough about the hosts. Their attention to detail is to be commended. Everything you need is there at the house from towels to cookware to an umbrella. There isn't an oven, but there is a convection/toaster oven and a double burner hot plate and that worked just fine for us. The media room was spectacular with a very comfortable sofa and very good sound and large projection screen. There are quite a few movies to choose from. I chose an all time favorite of mine ("Only You", with Robert Downy Jr). The beds are super comfortable, just keep in mind that they are all in an open loft so you better like who you are staying there with :)

We didn't get to use the zipline; not sure if the handle was taken off for safety reasons or if it was at the far end of the line. It wasn't at the platform, but we didn't look for it at the other end or ask the owners...

We had a wedding with about 75 people. The only downside to that was that we hired a dj for music and karaoke and received a text at 9 pm asking us to keep it down which was kind of a bummer as we had friends and relatives who came in from Alabama, Kansas, New Hampshire and Louisiana among other places. (We have some loud friends.) So if you do anything like that, plan to cut it off early.

However...if it's a getaway you are looking for, this place is awesome! It is quiet, relaxing and comfortable. The hosts were both amazingly nice and accommodating. All in all, I would say book it for some time away from the hustle and bustle!! You will not be disappointed!!

Great get away from the city

  • 5 of 5

All 4 of us - mom, dad, and 2 kids (11 and 14) - had a great time. We sat outside and watched the stars and listened to the night sounds, away from busy streets. Julane could not have been a more welcoming and helpful host, and the spread of land is very sweet, large and private. Next time we'll stay longer and explore more, but we did appreciate the option for a one-night rental on this stay. Very comfortable! We'll be back!
