Everything we hoped it would be!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this cabin was just as advertised and more. My boys loved the large yard, horseshoes, basketball goal, fire pit and home theater. The location made for a peaceful 2 night quick getaway. We will not recommend it to our friends because we want it all to ourselves. Sorry. The property owners were very friendly and available if needed. Hope to come back soon. Loved this place.

Perfect for our group!

  • 5 of 5

Spent the weekend here with some friends- sort of a "girls' weekend". This was a great spot to have it! Everything is very clean and cozy, and the setting is so quiet- terrific sunsets and sunrises over the misty woodlands that surround the barn, but only 20 minutes into Longview.

Love the movie room and we took advantage of it both nights. The loft added to the "slumber party" atmosphere and the bathroom is super-cute :)

The hostess is attentive and very friendly. We will be back!!!

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! 😌?
