Nice peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Cozy little barn studio with a beautiful picture window overlooking the pond. Yafa and company are very friendly and helpful with any needs. We loved the fresh cut flowers.

Wonderful escape from the city!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 4 yr old daughter and me had an escape from NYC to Yafa's wonderful quiet and serene property. We canoed in the lake, swam in the well water pool and relaxed in the small, but perfect accommodations. We saw a family of blue herons, a groundhog and a ton of butterflies. So many of the VRBO, AirBnB places are not well appointed, but Yafa's place IS! All the lights are on dimmers --- so important --- the furniture is sparse and perfect for the space. Great for clean freaks and people who love to cook. Beauty is everywhere you look, both inside and out. Will visit again. ❤️

A sweet little retreat

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our weekend at Yafa's. The house is truly tiny but so well designed and aesthetically terrific. It is a renovated portion of a barn, with a combined living/room kitchen and a sleeping loft. It overlooks the lovely pond, where there is canoe available for use. Note that the house is really an out-building on Yafa's large property, and the pool is more-or-less attached to her main house. So your stay is private but not entirely so, in that you'll see the owner coming and going. That said, we were there escaping from the city heatwave and spent nearly the entire weekend in her pool with no issues at all. The property and the owner are both lovely and interesting -- a great find!

the energy of this space was so peaceful. Everything about the experience was lovely, Yaffa was great.

We mainly spent our time cooking lovely meals and enjoying the beautiful view. We absolutely cannot wait until we return.

romantic getaway..

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to find a place that was close to our home, but felt like a true getaway. This was a birthday gift for my wife and was a perfec romantic setting. It was a very peaceful setting, and also very private. The refinished barn was charming and comfy and we got a great nights rest. We look forward to visiting again next year. We highly recommend this for anyone looking for peace, nature, and privacy.
