LoftBarn is a 19th century barn that has been set up as a living space. It is about fifty feet from our home but is secluded by trees. It sits on the bank of a year around stream and there is a bridge across the stream leading to a pond and open land. LoftBarn will accommodate four people or five in a pinch. LoftBarn has huge exposed beams downstairs and a forty foot long loft upstairs. It is both rustic and chic. There is a complete bathroom and kitchen with amenities. The decor is funky mid century and comfortable. There is a new king sized Ikea bed upstairs and a queen sized high density foam bed downstairs. The vibe is relaxed and not precious.

We pulled off the road after spotting the high rustic barn with arched roof and a little glass entranceway. Heading inside, were welcomed with a single large space with a decked out kitchen, lounge area, and double bed in a sleeping nook. Upstairs is one giant master bedroom with ancient floor boards, a king size bed and a colorful window made from rows of glass bottles.
The owners Susan and Neil are artists, collectors and creators and this comes through in little creative marks throughout the barn. Out the back door, there's a wood stack for summer and a tree with filled with feeders, attracting all sorts of birds. Neil and Sidney the dog take us for a walk in the snow and to visit the other even larger barn housing a stage and more arts and crafts projects.
The drive is a couple of hours from New York City and nestled in the Catskills - while it is on the road, there are lots of hikes, antiques, even a new brewer opening up the road to adventure to. In winter the heatpump makes for a cozy space, it's a great place to rug up and venture out into the snow then return for hot toddys, tunes on the boombox and games.
