Interview By:

— How would you describe the vacation rental in a few words?

Bruna: “It’s a fun place to gather with family and friends for a weekend getaway, or for a more relaxed R&R week away from New York City in the summer.

The barn was built in the late 1800s and sits on 5 acres. About 17 years ago, a woman bought the property and transformed the barn into a house. Around 2005, we spent a weekend there and it was just magical.

We ended up purchasing the property in 2012 and live in a separate house onsite and rent out the barn to guests. It was already a vacation rental, so that made the transition easy.”

— How would you describe the atmosphere at the rental?

Bruna: “It’s a very friendly gathering place. It features the original décor, a wood-burning stove for the winter months where people can sit around the fire, cook meals and play games. There’s no cable, but we offer a display where you can watch DVDs.”

— Please tell us about the barn rooms and facilities.

Bruna: “The vacation home is in fact a two-story barn with a loft. There are four guest rooms that are actually bedroom nooks; they aren’t conventional with closed walls, but enclosed with linen curtains for privacy. It offers a communal vibe. We have twin, queen and king beds.

The first floor is for hanging out. It has a kitchen, full bathroom, wood-burning stove, and access to the patio and deck, which has an outdoor shower. The second level has the bedrooms, a bathroom, and a loft space with a queen bed and windows that open up to the stream.”

— What about the outside areas of the barn?

Bruna: “We have three outdoor fire pits, a deck with a grill, patio furniture, a pond, and a stream that goes through the property that you can take a dip in. It’s a rustic yet chic, camp-like gathering place. Besides being a vacation rental, it makes for a perfect wedding destination.”
