About Krista Roberts

Originally from Michigan, but with time logged in North Carolina, Oregon and Alabama, Krista relocated to her father's birthplace to be close to family.

Krista Roberts purchased this barn in 2013

Why Krista Roberts chose Sandwich

This property bares a striking resemblance of spirit to her childhood home: a little old town center, the original village schoolhouse, a barn, a creek. The barn renovation allowed her to re-imagine the Swedish-style summerhouse built by her father where she played as a child.

What makes this barn unique

The two church steeples that are just hundreds of feet away are visible from the yard, balcony and even through some of the skylights. And one of those churches is on the Elvis album cover of 1967's How Great Thou Art.

fabulous loft!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Krista's loft. It is clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated, the pictures don't do it justice! Krista was accesible and extremely friendly and answered any questions we had. The yard is lovely, just wish we had time to spend in it. The loft is located a short walk to the beach. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks so much Krista!!

Breathtakingly beautiful and peaceful summerhouse

  • 5 of 5

Some friends and I came here for the weekend to celebrate our bride-to-be friend for her low-key bachelorette party. I'm happy to say that the bride-to-be (and the rest of us) couldn't have been more ecstatic with the place. We were all in love with the stunning property! It is so light, modern, and rustic all at the same time. It was cozy, comfy, and a lot of fun, with all the comforts we could hope for, including pretty much every cooking utensil and appliance we could need, great temperature controls, a very soothing shower, wonderful beds (and couch), convenient lighting, and even a sauna, to name only a few. Krista was very helpful via email when I was making the arrangements, and when we arrived, Amelia had left out wine glasses, champagne, and a local Cape Cod favorite brand of tasty chocolates for us. She was very responsive, accomodating, and friendly! The view from the balcony is so pretty and calming. The entire town is quaint and charming, with the ocean about a 1-minute drive away. We loved The Brown Jug right around the corner (their pizza was delicious) and Star of Siam Thai food 20 minutes away, but most of all we just loved being in the summerhouse. Highly, highly recommended dream come true and we are already talking about making it a traditional girls trip each year! :)
