Only 6 minutes from the village of Woodstock, the Barn Castle provides total privacy and unparalleled views. This 4 bedroom converted barn is found at the end of a long private driveway. Enjoy warm fireplaces, a generous kitchen, wood stove, screen porch, BBQ, jacuzzi, hammocks and fire pit. Take in the beauty of ponds, starry nights and miles of nature trails that wind through the forest, across meadows, by streams and along stone walls, affording you stunning views and the sounds of nature.


UPDATE: We have air conditioning! We also just installed blackout blinds in the bedrooms for the late sleepers of the world. The West Bedroom fireplace is yours to use!

ALSO, although check-in and check-out are officially at 2pm, we will always do what we can to allow early check-in and late check-out, allowing you to enjoy the most extended experience possible.

This is a unique home in an exquisite setting. Our home awards visitors with the bounty of one's own private 15 acre nature preserve as well as the convenience of close proximity to the village of Woodstock. This 4 bedroom home is exceedingly comfortable and family friendly. It is the perfect weekend destination for couples desiring privacy and connection to nature as well as groups of friends and families who are seeking an incredible setting to share each other's company. We welcome you and hope that you have the best time!

15 minutes from HITS. Long private drive with ample parking. (see photos)

The three single beds in Bedroom 4 (The South Bedroom) can be converted to a king bed and a single bed. Full explanation below.

Before we owned the Barn Castle we rented it over a long weekend through AirBNB. We had an amazing visit, fell in love with the property and soon discovered it was for sale...

We began calling our soon to be new upstate home the "The Barn Castle" because the idea brought great joy to our children. The name stuck because it made sense to us. The structure existed as a functional barn for well over 100 years. During it's conversion into a bohemian living space in the 1970s it became castlelike with enormous windows, an epic hearth and Gothic fixtures including ironwork, stained glass and a large vintage chandelier that you'll find in the central living room. In more emotive terms, we found the house both warm and rustic as a barn might be, but also incredibly grand in setting and space. Part barn. Part castle.

The Barn Castle provides an immersive outdoor experience. This is not only due to the size and number of windows, but also due to the architectural structure and acoustic nature of a barn conversion; The feeling within is entirely dependent on the seasons and the weather beyond it's walls.
WINTER: Snow, wood stove, fireplace warmth, evergreen trees stand tall between the branches of bare deciduous trees, pond ice, shades of white and gray, pastel skies, cozy.
SPRING: Birds and buzzing return, green leaves, geese in the pond, blossoms, the sound of rain falling on the roof.
SUMMER: Frogs croaking, dragon flies, crickets, cicadas, moths, shiny beetles, wildlife, everything green, all things alive, all things buzzing, thunder storms, swim, sunshine, play, flashes of lighting cross the room.
FALL: The dreamy psychedelic, colors of Fall. Cool breeze. Crisp nights. Stars. The fireplace again.

(Note: the photos I've uploaded contain captions that will also help you visualize the space.) The front door leads you into an entryway hall. Doors off this hallway lead to The South Bedroom and The North Bedroom. Another door leads into the central living room where you will find a 30' ceiling with skylights, a large fireplace, window walls facing both north and south, and many comfortable couches. You will also find the first floor bathroom and stairs leading to the 2nd floor. If you continue across the living room you will find stairs that lead to a large sunken kitchen and eat-in dining room. If you walk across the dining area you will find a sliding door that leads to a screen porch. Beyond the porch lies a hot tub, one of two ponds and the beautiful spectacle that seasons bring.

The second floor of the barn once contained two haylofts on the east and west sides of the structure. These haylofts were converted to The East Bedroom and The West Bedroom, our largest bedroom, with a fireplace and large windows on three sides. Elevated hallways run along the south and north walls of the building and provide access to these bedrooms as well as the bathroom they share.

Early check in and late check is sometimes available upon request.

All beds are made with down blankets and pillows. Closet space is provided for your belongings in each bedroom.
The West Bedroom: King Bed (has fireplace)
The East Bedroom: Queen Bed
The North Bedroom: Queen Bed
The South Bedroom: 1 King Bed and 1 Twin OR 3 Twin Beds. (Depending on your preferences.)

A Pack N' Play for babies/toddlers. The living room couches are incredibly wide and comfortable. Bedding can be provided for sleeping on them as well. We have three very small sleeping bags which are probably suitable for children age five and under. We also have a large tent in the garage which you're welcome to use, although you'd have to bring your own adult sleeping bags or bedding for this.

Please enjoy the hot tub! We maintain the tub and change the water often. It is amazing on a starry night and in the midst of snow.

FIREWOOD for the wood stove and the fire place is provided. Please do not use the firewood for fires in the fire pit.

There are 9 stackable Adirondack chairs located inside the shed just east of the fire pit. They are fantastic for a marshmallow roast, sunset gaze, fire side chat. We keep them in the shed when no one is at the house so that they don't blow away. Help yourself! Also - there is lots of kindling and camp fire in the forest. Happy rummaging.

Please be aware that there are two ponds on the property. If you are traveling with small children or adults who cannot swim for whatever reason please take note of these dangers and take care. There are also a few covered wells on the property. Do not remove the stones and wood that cover them. Do not leave any children unsupervised.

There are several swimming holes within a few miles of the house. Research The Big Deep and Millstream in Woodstock. These are incredibly close. The Kaaterskill Falls trailhead is about 25-30 minutes away and is epic.

As much as we love dogs, we are unable to host them.

Picnic blankets, folding tables, a sturdy cart, a large tent, kiddie pools, a hammock, sleds.

Feel free to use them! Just return them to their shelves before you leave.

The house runs on a septic system and vintage plumbing. As such, we dispose of all baby wipes, paper towels sanitary products and food scraps in the garbage instead of in the toilets.

In addition to all the ample wildlife, honey bees, and carpenter bees, and wasps exist on the 15 acre property. Our family has experienced only one sting; I stepped on a wasp and, naturally, he stung me. Ouch. Otherwise, they keep to themselves. I just wanted to put this out there in case any guests have bee allergies. Bring your Epipen!

Also, during certain times of the year occasional wasps makes their way in through the wood siding. I have several highly useful fly swatters available, in the case that your are inspired to swiftly dispose of an errant wasp. (Aren't fly swatters amazing?)

During windless summer days the areas by the ponds can be quite buggy. Even a slight breeze clears up the bugs, but alas, windless days happen. Help yourself to bug spray. The gazebo and screen porch are graceful places to take in the world when the tiny no-see-ums are a buzz. Also, all of upstate New York is a tick habitat. Take precautions when walking outdoors, especially during the spring and early summer.

Bring your hiking boots and/or rain boots! After the snow melts in the spring or after a heavy rain, many interesting areas on the property can be muddy. Having the right footwear will allow you to trudge along the mossy creek and visit some of the prettiest corners of the property without getting your feet wet. Mushrooms! Wetland! Natural fern gardens!

The Barn Castle is an architectural gem in a lovely, secluded setting. The house, grounds, and Mary’s thoughtful touches throughout greatly exceeded our expectations. Highly recommended for couples or small groups looking to escape in nature without sacrificing their creature comforts. Thanks, Mary!!

This place is AMAZING!!! The pictures cannot do it justice, and the property is just INCREDIBLE! We were blown away the beauty of the house and of the land. The house is so comfortable yet beautiful and there are huge windows with views and tons of natural light. My friend went on and on about how it was the best AirBnB she'd ever stayed in, and it was for me too. Just wonderful. The energy of the home and the land is wonderful, and you can easily spend days here just finding new beautiful cozy nooks within the house to enjoy or exploring new areas of the land to relax in. The land has several walking paths, which I loved exploring, plus the hot tub, gazebo and fire pit. Mary was delightful and very responsive. I can't recommend it enough!

We had a great weekend in Mary's place - The Barn Castle is the perfect house for a gathering of friends, to enjoy nature and each others company. Everything was spotless, the décor was lovely, and the scenery couldn't have been more beautiful. We felt so welcome, and spent the weekend cooking, and playing yard games, and sitting around the campfire. Mary was an extremely communicative and available host, though we never ran into any issues we needed her for. I can't say enough good things about The Barn Castle, and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable and relaxing weekend away. This was our third year going away for a weekend as friends, and it was by far our favorite house and location! I hope to return again

The house and property is magical. Mary was super helpful with all questions we had and had some great recommendations. The house is decorated impeccably and is so cozy - the natural light is amazing! All beds and couches were super comfy! Not to mention, the kitchen is super spacious and had all the cooking tools we needed to have a relaxing breakfast and dinner at the barn castle. This is a great getaway for a special occasion, or just to enjoy the fresh air. We're hoping to come back in the Winter!

Thanks so much Jenna! I'm so glad you had such a good time. And thank you for the treats! We'd love to have you back in the winter. It's such an incredible contrast from the sunshine and fireflies of summer to sledding and fireside of winter. x

My husband and I live in Brooklyn, NY with our three children. We travel often, and find great enjoyment in staying in real people's homes around the world.

In New York we have hosted both long term tenants in our two-family home and many vacationers in our former property upstate. Being a host is deeply informative and reinforces all of our already obvious instincts: be respectful, clean, communicative and leave a rental in even better condition then it was found.
