Deck needs a few repairs.
Beautiful place for family gathering
This renovated barn is spectacular and we had an amazing time with plenty of room for our extended family. The kitchen and great room made for a wonderful place for everyone to connect--everyone loved it! There were two washers and two dryers and a fully loaded kitchen so everyone had what we needed throughout our stay.
Only negatives were: no yard playset or kids table as seen in photos. We have two 4 year olds and this was a disappointment. The house was beautifully maintained but the yard wasn't as much. My 4 year old son got stung by bees 4 times in the yard so it ended up not being a great place for the kids to play. Also hard to get ahold of anyone including onsite caretakers in adjoining apartment (didn't answer the door when we knocked after the building smoke alarm went off repeatedly at 2 in the morning even though their light had just been on). Had to eventually call 911 and get a fire truck to come out to make sure there were no issues. Be aware that even though the listing says 7 bedrooms, you are only getting 5 bedrooms unless you pay extra and reserve the adjoining 2 bedroom unit. I didn't realize this until the day before we were supposed to leave. Luckily, the 5 bedroom barn portion of the property is so spacious and accommodating, we were all comfortable with the 5 bedrooms. Overall this was a beautiful, impressive property and simply wonderful for family gatherings--we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend!
The home is beautiful and in a great location.
Perfect for a large group
Great upscale converted barn for a large group with lots of privacy. Well stocked, plenty of dishes and linens, and very large gathering spaces.
Family Unplugged Retreat
When looking for a place to unplug with our families within driving distance of the Chicago suburbs - that could fit us all - we were thrilled to find The Barn! Fantastic common spaces for group meals, games, and relaxation - as well as separate areas for the kids to have their own space to themselves. Our group of 20 ranged in age from 7 to 76 and we all truly enjoyed our short stay.
The space has been beautifully renovated maintaining both rustic charm, blending it nicely with modern amenities and comfort.
Note that the loft/master bedroom area is open to noise from the common areas, so not for your early-to-bed or late-risers. There are other options for those in your party.
We appreciated the service that Mike and his team provided leading up to and after our stay. Very responsive to questions and a requested accommodation. Great customer service.
We also particularly enjoyed having our dog join us on vacation, too! A fully fenced area would have been nice to give them a chance to run off-leash without fear of chasing wildlife, but I absolutely don't consider it a deal-breaker.
We all loved this truly unique property and could see us returning for future gatherings. My kids keep asking when we can go back to the barn. Thanks for a great stay!
