The home away from home you don't want to leave!!
Tripp was beyond helpful in the planning stages of our weekend away. The "barn" is something out of a magazine! It's a hybrid between luxury and comfort. The homeowners have forgotten nothing! A tooth brush and some clothing and you are set! The home is located only minutes away from picturesque Woodstock, but we loved the home so much we only ventured out for a few hours - excited to get back to the coziness and beauty the barn offers! By the end of our girls weekend- we were talking about renting it again in the summer time!tracey a.

Amazing Hidden Gem in the Catskills
Barn on The Pond is the perfect weekend escape, vacation destination for relaxation, and beautiful venue for a variety of events. We were lucky enough to stay for a beautiful week in October at the peak of the leaves changing in beautiful weather. The minute we stepped into the home, we were immediately in vacation mode-- it's hard not to be with its serene property, beautiful high open ceilings and a welcoming decor. The kitchen was made for entertaining, whether that's hosting a holiday for family, pepping for an event, or simply cooking dinner for 2 or 12. The bedrooms are all warm and inviting and to sit by the fire-- either inside in the living room listening to records or outside upstairs, cozied up looking out into the mountains with a drink-- is heaven. There's a beautiful fire pit that we sat with friends around with a beer to catch up and roast some s'mores and the airbed (basically an XL hammock) is the ideal way to lose track of time staring at the sky. To look out of our windows or sit on the upper back porch with coffee looking out at the pond and the background of trees and mountains was perfect. Every amenity was thoughtfully in place. Tripp and his team have thought of everything and go out of their way to make sure your trip is comfortable, enjoyable and memorable. We were a group of 11 + a our dog and had the best time, even hosting our annual pumpkin beer tasting. There's no lesser accommodations though, even the airstream (about 100 feet from the house) was roomy, funky and fun to stay in. This is a wonderful hidden gem and we look forward to coming back in the future.Lauren B.

I stayed for a week at the fabulous Barn on the Pond with a bunch of friends, and loved every minute. Tripp the owner is great; he's extremely accommodating and goes beyond the call of duty. The place was clean, beautifully designed, luxurious, grand, bohemian and posh. The Barn on the Pond is a short drive into Woodstock where you can find some good stores, restaurants, friendly people and a river with beautiful water holes to swim in. The Barn and the grounds are huge with different nooks and crannies to hang out in - one night roasting marshmallows on the bonfire in the garden, the next night posh pizza and wine on the upstairs balcony with an open fire burning in the hearth, home cooked meals with friends round the long dining table, an afternoon chatting peacefully on the giant dream catcher swing looking up at the Dr. Seuss trees, then dangling feet into the cool water of the pond watching frogs, listening to the sound of birds singing and crickets buzzing. So beautiful. Staying here is everything summer should be; It's an idyllic paradise. It's the kind of place that nurtures life long memories. I will always recommend this wonderful place to friends and family, and I look forward to staying here next summer.Stephen B.
