While we often associate vacation with Summer, Fall is a truly beautiful time of year that can be great for vacation. All of those Fall colors and the cold but not-that-cold weather that allows us to bust out our favorite cozy sweaters. It all makes for a perfect storm of coziness and romance that can lead to a vacation experience that you’ll never forget.
And what better way to spend a Fall getaway than in a repurposed barn?! It doesn’t get much more quaint than that. And there are plenty of great options around the country for couples and families alike. So check out these awesome barns and start planning today!
This truly beautiful building located in Great Barrington, Massachusetts can provide a once in a lifetime vacation experience. The cathedral style ceiling and exposed beams create a breathtaking interior. Not to mention the place is full of quaint and primitive accessories and decorate with beautiful French Provincial antiques. And with starting prices as low as $428 a night it’s not too expensive, but it does have a 7-night minimum stay.
THE BLUE BARN
They call this barn in Albion, California “The Blue Barn” because, well, it’s blue! Located just west of Sacramento, this amazing structure was built an impressive 100 years ago out of entirely old-growth redwood. The property it sits on is six acres in total and is mostly an apple farm. The rental also includes a hammock for relaxing and a sauna for, well, relaxing! This place is truly wonderful and has nightly prices as low as $155.
HUDSON VALLEY BARN
This barn in the New York’s Hudson Valley (more specifically in Saugerties, New York) is one massive unit that can accommodate up to 10 people. Pricing starts at $856 a night and the amenities more than make it worth it. The barn sits on a beautiful 24 acres and includes a grand lawn, private patio, fire pit, fireplace, and a large kitchen and large living space. If you stay here, it’s likely the only reason you’ll leave is to take in the sunset and sunrise.
THE BARN RETREAT
This barn is located on Shilo Farm near Portsmouth, New Hampshire and has prices as low as $127 a night. It’s also one of my favorite barns on this list as it offers that perfectly 18th-century charm while still having damn near all the modern day amenities most of us would like out of a vacation rental. Plus there’s the wonderful bonus amenities of plenty of farm animals on the property for making friends with and the owner also offers yoga classes for their guests!
NORTH CAROLINA BARN
This proper barn is so quaint it’s actually located in Hot Springs, North Carolina! What else do you need to know? Oh, OK, sure. The amenities. This barn is definitely for the more adventurous type. There is no hot water (only cold running spring water) and no fridge for keeping food or drinks. So you really feel like you’re actually living in a barn while you’re staying here. But make no mistake, this place is as cozy as it gets and if you’re looking for a vacation off the beaten path you definitely won’t be disappointed here. And prices start at only $161 a night!
