For a truly unique getaway, consider staying in — and on — an actual barn. These one-of-a-kind vacation rentals offer unique and spacious accommodations, secluded locales, and pristine views. Read on for a few of our favorite Airbnb (@Airbnb) barn stays in North America. Even better? They’re all within easy driving distance of several major cities and cost under $350 per night (an added bonus).
An Incredibly Charming Pennsylvania Barn (Lititz, PA)
Known as the “Red House,” this quaint vacation rental is housed on a 100-acre working farm. It sleeps up to eight guests and boasts four bedrooms plus three-and-a-half bathrooms. The first floor includes a kitchen, dining room, bathroom, and a large, sun-drenched living room with plenty of room to lounge out. Expect lots of rustic-chic furnishings and retro-inspired design touches. Spend a few hours wandering through the expansive grounds, where you’ll find chickens, ducks, and dogs roaming freely.
This Completely Restored Milk Barn (Bethel, CT)
This ultra-charming, red-hued barn — which spans four acres of rolling farmland — exudes classic New England charm. It sleeps up to four and boasts a private patio surrounded by lush gardens, a swimming pool, and a deep-soaking tub. The sunsets here (best enjoyed on the patio, of course) are especially spectacular. Keep in mind that, while the property feels worlds away from reality, it’s just 90 minutes from The Big Apple.
This Tranquil & Rustic Candian Horse Barn (Adjala-Tosorontio, ON, Canada)
Located about 90 miles north of Toronto, this unique, open-concept Airbnb — which sleeps up to five and is situated above a three-stall horse barn-— is ideal for equestrian enthusiasts and outdoor lovers alike. The farm itself is home to various livestock and grows organic mixed produce. Other features include wooded trails for walking or hiking, plus a beautiful, fish-filled pond. Before you leave, stop by the on-site store to pick up fresh eggs, dairy, meat, veggies, jams, and more.
