Unique and wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at The Barn many time over the years and love it. Architecturally I've never seen another place like it. The "chapel" is a great place to read or play ping pong on hot afternoons, the deck has wonderful views of the bay, and there are magical paths through the woods down to the water. The state park is close by and wonderful for swimming. And if you have a canoe the Slocum River is one of the most well preserved and beautiful rivers in the Northeast.
