Awesome place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Our group has stayed here 3 times now, and each time has been great.

There are plenty of beds and couches to sleep (our group usually has 5), the media room is cool, there is at least one trail for hiking on the property, there is a spot to cookout, and the zip line is pretty fun. We didn't get to do these last 2 on this latest trip due to the weather, but between the media room, some hiking, and playing some board games inside, it was still a fun trip. We even got in a game of basketball (there is a goal outside one of the buildings), although trying to dribble the ball on grass adds an interesting challenge.

I'm sure we will go back again.

Weekend getaway

We attended a wedding nearby the first night, and the next day we enjoyed the Red Barn with movies and family time. Nicely decorated.

This was the perfect place for my daughter's birthday party sleepover with a few friends. They really enjoyed the paddle boat, zip line, and of course the movie room!

I highly recommend! The owners were very friendly!
