“Perfect, so relaxing and has an amazing log burner.”
Reviewed August 30, 2015 for a stay in August 2015
person found this review helpful

The Barn has everything one would need kitchen is well equipped, plenty of books puzzles etc and TV the Bed is comfortable and the bathroom is small but very clean and all one needs to use. We have stayed at the barn quite a few times now as it is perfect place to end up after a day up the mountain skiing. the log burner keeps the place warm along with the heat pump. The hosts Margie and Allan are great to they are always happy to help. We speak highly of this place to lots of our friends.
