We had a lovely stay at The Barn House! Mary was very welcoming, the Barn House and farm setting is beautiful. The beds are comfortable, everything was clean and there are all the things you need, the open fire was even set up ready for us. Thank you for a wonderful stay, we hope to visit again soon.

A cosy tranquil stay for the weekend. Unfortunately there was a price discrepancy. Initially advertised $249 per night, after contacting the host the price was increased to $290 per night. I brought this up with the host I was told I was getting a special rate and the price is usually $350. Apart from that it was an alright place. Just make sure you check the price before you confirm.

Our second stay here, even better than the first if possible. Mary and Roy were lovely, up for a chat and a further tour of the property before giving us privacy. The place just feels like home. Spacious but cozy, pristine and some of the most unique decorations. The weather was cold and raining, perfect for the fireplace and blankets on the couch. I absolutely recommend this place to anyone looking for a getaway.

One of the most beautiful airbnbs we have stayed in. Mary was very warm and welcoming, and the property is stunning. The detail in the house itself is extraordinary. The place was very clean, very spacious for the two of us with a lovely outdoor section as well and access to wander about the farm. A great retreat, we will definitely be back some time.

The Barn House is on a gorgeous property and is full of quaint details. The main bedroom and bathroom are really impressive and the living space is lovely. Mary is a very friendly, flexible host who was great to deal with. Accommodation is close to Kyneton and only a short drive from Melbourne. A unique experience.
