Guestbook comments from the manager

We have been using this facility to host high end customers and guests for some time and just keep coming back. The "WOW" factor there is impressive from the time you enter the building until the time you depart. Every time I bring guests to stay at "The Barn", their reaction is extremely positive. When they see the meticulous care taken in reconstruction, the attention to detail and general feel of the property, they just gaze for a minute or two upon entry and say "wow".



This place is a great destination for families, friends and groups. I can without hesitation recommend Festive Resorts "The Barn" to anyone looking for a classy, comfortable and relaxing stay.

Exceeded expectations for a winter week-end

  • 5 of 5

This refurbished barn was exactly as advertised. Our group of ten adults enjoyed the huge fireplace, comfortable beds and large chef kitchen. The well-equipped kitchen had everything we needed, and we especially liked the long dining table that seated our entire group and the Wolf range. The giant refrigerators and freezers made food preparation very easy. There are two dishwashers, so clean-up was very easy. We unique decorations and terrific lighting made this a very memorable stay. There is plenty of room for a large group. Very close to the Ice Age Trail and Hartman's Creek State Park.

Just like Stepping into a Pinterest Post

Breathtaking- the house is as awesome (we’ll better) than the photos.

Yes, like someone else has posted, it is next to a festival food plant and the farmhouse is right there but you’d never know because all the windows and the deck face the open field. It’s the least of your worries in my opinion.

The galley kitchen was everything we needed for our Cinco de Mayo taco bar spread. Slept everyone in our group wonderfully and allowed for plenty of private room space.

Any areas of opportunity I would offer would be to maybe have the place “spring cleaned” once a year? There was a lot of standing dust. On top of the speakers and lights as you look over from the balcony, under the cow chairs, tables and chairs, on top of side tables and in areas where you pull a towel from under the sink.

Otherwise I would say it’s the bomb. We will be coming back for sure!

AMAZING PLACE

  • 5 of 5

This barn has been the location for our Women's Retreat THREE years now! Couldn't ask for a more relaxing & spacious location! There was plenty of room to spread out, and the kitchen was perfect!

It was great to finally meet Mike in person & his quick response when we needed shovels due to a freak snowstorm that dropped 2+ feet of snow.

Cannot wait to be back next year!

A perfect property to gather with good friends and family.

  • 5 of 5

The Barn provided a perfect location for four families with many children each to gather for a long weekend. We first visited The Barn in 2017 and came back recently for a return visit. There is a ton of space for folks to hang-out, explore the outside, watch movies, listen to music, and have impromptu dance parties. The kitchen is spacious and well appointed to allow for cooking yummy food and mixing delicious drinks. The bedrooms were cozy and the bathrooms were clean. Everything is tastefully decorated. We are already discussing another return trip next year!

Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

We rented the property for a reunion of college friends and were completely impressed by the quantity and quality of space in the barn. We loved the kitchen capacity as we made meals for 15. The great room accommodated several breakout for different games and the sound system filled the house. Really a unique and special property!
