Amazing Property, Perfect for Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My group stayed at the Barn on the Pond during MLK weekend and to put things simply, we are hoping to go back! To start, the house is absolutely stunning. The common area is huge. Everything in the pictures are accurate and the house comes with literally everything our group needed. We had a former professional chef in my group and he said the kitchen was amazing and came equipped with everything we needed. Additionally, the home is very well insulated and the bathrooms are extremely clean. The outdoor backyard and deck areas are beautiful, and that huge fire pit was a big big favorite with my group.

Secondly, Tripp is great property manager. I've rented many homes in the past and he was definitely among the best I've ever worked with. For example, he set us up with a fire wood provider before we arrived and they had the pit all ready to go with the light of a match. I'll definitely keep in touch with him and the Barn on the Pond for another visit soon.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your eloquent feedback, Paul. It's encouraging to hear from a savvy renter that my management skills are among the best and from your professional chef that the kitchen gets a big thumbs up. It was a pleasure hosting your group and we hope for another visit soon!

Beautiful property near Woodstock

  • 5 of 5

This is a really great house with plenty of room for several couples (we had 5 couples + 3 babies for the weekend, a stretch). It was so nice to sit out on the deck on the ground floor as well as the first floor. Woodstock is only a few minutes drive away too which made for a very nice time.

Thanks to Tripp for being responsive to my questions and being a great remote-host!

Owner's Response: Thanks, David. Hanging out on the deck is the best. Nature is the star of the show here. Glad to hear your group enjoyed Woodstock. Hope to have you back.

Magical place for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place for a large family gathering. Extremely well equipped and thoughtfully arranged for groups. The setting is idyllic and very tranquil. While the living area and the grounds are large and generous, the sleeping arrangements are a bit tricky as there are only 2 fully private bedrooms, one semi private and one open sleeping area as well as an additional trailer with no bathroom. But once that is sorted it is a fantastic venue. We were a large extended family staying for a nearby wedding and it was the perfect place to relax and recover afterwards. We were blessed with the weather and enjoyed making s'mores and having a sing song around the fire on our last evening- magic!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Maeve, for making Barn on the Pond your hub of relaxation for your wedding weekend gathering. Love hearing that our setting helped your family connect and recoup during your stay. Memories are what it’s all about! Hope to host you again someday.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My family had an amazing time at the Barn on the Pond! The house was comfortable, beautiful and had everything you can imagine you might need and more. The area was gorgeous to explore and the owner is also wonderful to work with. The only thing that could have made the experience better would have been a stronger AC system. Thank you for an amazing time! We highly recommend it!
