Favorite destination in the Catskills

  • 5 of 5

The place is awesome. A group of us ski at Belleayre each year and the Barn is our favorite place to stay. Tons of room. Very clean and well maintained.

A Wonderful House and Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

The Choco Barn was a wonderful time. This was our second year staying at this house and my friends and I had a great time. We loved the pizza oven. The house is great for groups and families because it is so big in size. Only 20 minutes from Bellearye mountain and 40 minutes from Hunter Mountain. We definitely plan to come back again next year!

Magical Stay! Can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one weekend at this beautiful house and our only regret is that we did not stay longer! This place is simply unreal. The space is huge but the layout is cozy and very inviting. We loved cooking in the kitchen and eating at the tatami dining table. The rooms were spacious and the beds very comfortable. We are already planning our next trip at the Barn!

Something to note: you will need 4 wheel drive/snow tires to get to the top of the driveway when it has snowed (unless you enjoy an intensive 15 min hike in the dark!)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are so happy that you share our love for this beautiful mountain barn and nature. Thanks to our returning guests, we can keep this 130 year old barn structure well conserved. It's not luxury in material but the wild woods and tranquility surrounding it is simply amazing if you love nature and have a great group of friends to share our large space! We look forward to having you back next January! Rita
