Perfect Little Get-Away Spot

  • 5 of 5

The Red Barn Retreat was so welcoming and relaxing. We were in the area for a wedding, so we hadn't gone specifically to enjoy the barn; however, we enjoyed our time there so much that we're planning a weekend to go back with the family.

The home is clean, cozy and all the basics you need are there. To anyone headed to the barn my only recommendation is that you gather/purchase dry wood for the fire pit and grocery shop well before you get there because the town is small, options limited and everything closes early. We had wood and basic staples and we felt spoiled. ;-)

Beautiful property. Unique living quarters with plenty of creature comforts inside and out.

  • 4 of 5

Wanted a place close to home to make a weekend getaway my wife and kids. This place is only 9 miles from our house in Longview but once we were there we felt like we were plenty far away, and that's exactly what we wanted. Movie theater room was a hit, as was the pond and paddle boat. The fire pit was a great place to keep warm and talk late into the night. Definitely recommend this place if getting away to some peace and quiet is your goal.

Unique weekend get away

  • 5 of 5

The Red Barn is a great place for a family gathering or if you are just looking for a fun place to spend a relaxing weekend. The owners were kind enough to allow us to have our mother's 85th birthday party there. The barn has been nicely updated, is well cared for, very clean and has fun decor. The kids in our group loved spending the night in the loft and watching movies in the theater room. The only thing that could have been improved upon was the inclusion of more soap products (for dish washing, etc). We did not wash clothes but I don't think there was any soap for that either. I would highly recommend the barn to anyone looking for a unique weekend retreat.

Much better than a hotel for a family of 6

  • 5 of 5

My husband travels a lot for work so we will occasionally join him. He had a week in Longview. It is so difficult to stay in a hotel for a week with 4 kids. I found this property and decided to go for it as a fun barn adventure. We had so much fun! We were amazed by the attention to details, the space to get all the wiggles out and be loud, smores at the fire pit, grilling burgers, swing set, tire swing, lots of room to explore outside, comfy beds, toys, games, movie room, laundry room. It was perfect in every way. Felt like home. My husband enjoyed all the home cooking and relaxing after work. So much better than a hotel if you have kids with you. We have 4, ages 3 mo - 9 yrs. The upstairs was great for baby nap times. With the AC soothing noise on they slept for hours while we were loud down below. The owners were very professional and friendly. I knew if I needed anything, they were right there and willing to help. We are all looking forward to coming back to the barn.
