*Name Change* Previously known as Red Barn Country Escape. 

Our driveway is located about 3 miles from the start of the Boston Marathon, 8 minutes from 495, but, on a country road. We find our property to be quite peaceful. We do have crickets to lull you to sleep and early birds (and sometimes a neighborhood rooster) to greet you in the morning.  Keep an eye out for turtles!

We are a few hundred yards from either Upton State Forest or Lake Whitehall. Lake Whitehall is popular with boaters (speed limit enforced) and is stocked with fish. There is a public boat ramp on the other side of the lake. We often put in our kayaks at the entrance close to our house. We hike, mountain bike and picnic in these parks. It's really beautiful.  There is a 24-hour grocery store 2 miles down the road. 

The gravel campsite is located at the barn end of our driveway in front of the red barn. There is a little privacy from the house, but, we may need to get into the barn from time to time. We have a 30amp and water hookup at the barn. If planning on using electric please add one "electric hookup" extra to each night of your stay. Please plan to bring 50' of hose and/or 25ft of electrical cord if using hookups. There is wifi, BUT, it's pretty weak at the barn. Definitely not strong enough for streaming! Our A-frame camper may or may not be parked next to the barn depending on if we are out camping! 

Turtle Path also has a Guest Suite. Find us on that other website! Shortly after we moved in we discovered a large snapping turtle on his way from Lake Whitehall to the creek at the back of our property. Our neighbor told us that's the turtle's usual route. Turtle won our hearts that day.

We stayed on this property during the Boston Marathon with our 38 foot motorhome. It was a beautiful place neat lots of places to walk our dog to. We loves the scenery and really enjoyed our stay.

Wooded property in a gorgeous development. Great place to stay a night that offers privacy, electric, and water. Emily is a super host.

It really was an unexpected treat,,,though we knew from the photos and the description that it was probably going to suit our needs for the weekend we had no idea just how very special a place the Red Barn and our stay with Emily and Joel would turn out to be,
A true snow covered Winter Wonderland out of a picture book one reads/dreams of in childhood,,,,

Very private. electric hookup.,complete respect for Covid Protocols!!!

The town is minutes away and has EVERYTHING one could want. Again. so pictaresque you could spend days exploring it.

We will be back as a vacation destination, not just as a stopover.
(looking forward to checking it out during the other seasons as well).

As to the Hospitality of the Hosts, you simply won't find yourself in a more comfortable situation, Truly Delightful people

Thumbs up on every level.,
Only one downside,
You'll never want to leave!!!

Our stay here was perfect. It gave us a quiet place to stay while we explored the area, canoed, biked, and visited our child at college. Emily was very responsive and friendly. We would definitely stay here again!

We drove a 23 ft flying cloud Airstream and it was a little tight backing in but once you turned into the driveway it widens and there’s plenty of space. Quaint space right next to a red barn.

Emily's home and property were beautiful with electric and water hookups. A slightly long gravel driveway to back in, but my husband was able to pull it off. She even offered us fresh cucumbers from her garden and let us borrow an extension cord. Very hospitable.
