Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Enjoyable Stay Really enjoyed our stay at the Country Barn. The owner was very friendly and accomodating and we had a gorgeous evening at the property. The only thing I'd say to dog people is that the accommodation is upstairs and therefore may not be suitable access for certain breeds.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but bad as well The property is listed as pet friendly. I was charged $80 for the dogs to stay for 2 nights which is fairy reasonable however, the yard for the dogs was muddy and there wasn't an opportunity to clean them therefore mud was then taken inside by them. There was not a mop and bucket available to clean the floors so I was unfortunately unable to do this. I would have if the equipment was available so I felt a little like I was set up to fail in this regard. The rules stipulate that the dogs are allowed upstairs in the barn however, when I got home from my trip I received a rude email stating that the owners could not understand why they were upstairs when downstairs and outside were suitable. Outside was not suitable as it was mud and if our dogs were out there and the owners dogs were off the leash their dogs would run at ours barking at them, and of course ours would end up barking back, creating a lot of noise and stress for everyone. The accommodation was reasonable. The stairs were very steep so if you have trouble with stairs then this place is not for you. It was OK and I was focusing on the positives while I was there however, this wasn't possible once I received the rude email when I got home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cozy and quiet My Partner and I spent two wonderful nights @ the Country Barn Retreat. Elaine the hostess was very friendly and knowledgable about the surrounding areas. The accomodation was very clean and everything we needed was there. the queen brass bed was extremely comfortable and the combustion fire provided more than enough heat despite the frost outside. Definately recommend a stay here, we didnt want to leave. Our two small pugs love the fact that they could come along too. Deb & Shane

Beautiful idyllic spot and interiors both lovely and authentic but with some lovely touches - lovely bedding and electric blanket, fresh eggs provided by lovely host Elaine who was very helpful and friendly.
