Forget Glamping, Luxury Barn Vacation Rentals Are The New Best Way To Barn Stay

Nick Winikoff| Posted on 2017-11-13 | ~3 min read

The vacation rental market exploded in 2016 with giants of the industry becoming household names. But as everyone moves away from hotels towards vacation rentals, it is awesome to see the types of vacation rentals now gaining a reputation. Glamping (Glamor-Camping) has exploded in popularity over the last 12 months. But I’m here to give you an exciting look at the next big vacation rental trend sweeping across the U.S. As you might have guessed it’s luxury barns. Old barns that have renovated and repurposed into vacation rental homes. So without further ado here are 5 of the most incredible luxury barns that you can rent in the United States.

1) The Barn At Fox Hollow

Located In Ashville, North Carolina

Price from $750/night

This stunning luxury barn is located 10 minutes north of Downtown Asheville and an entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway, 35 minutes to Asheville Regional Airport, and minutes from all the culture and outdoor activities Asheville and the surrounding area have to offer. With a staggering 4 king bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, this barn should be one of your top destinations.

This converted barn is unlike anywhere you have ever stayed. Once again the owners have outdone themselves by providing their guests with the ultimate in amenities, furnishings, and décor. There isn’t any detail they have overlooked. This is anything but your typical barn.

2) The Luxury Barn Stay

Located In Olympia, Washington

Price from $145

This custom built barn, located on a quiet five acre rural setting, offers great comfort and loads of fun-filled features: 2nd floor barn lodging, wet bar, flat screen tv, pool table, ping pong, dart board, sound system.

This luxury barn has the typical features of a picturesque barn you would see in the movies. With a bright red exterior I wouldn’t blame you for thinking there might be cows and horses inside. But of course it is so different. The barn holds a variety of golf and craft beer memorabilia. Tastings from the multi-tap keggerator featuring our latest seasonal home brews included...based on current supply.

3) The Lake Superior Barn

Located In Maple, Wisconsin

Price from $700

This 4,250 sq. foot home can easily sleep 20 people. It is designed to accommodate multiple families with open bathrooms and individual toilets and showers. The home is just 30 minutes east of Duluth on the sandy south shore of Lake Superior.

Lake Superior Barn stands on 320 acres of remote wilderness and sandy beach. The home sits on the south shore of Lake Superior, staring across the lake to the North Shore cities of Duluth and Two Harbors whose lights twinkle in the distance at night. The property is completely surrounded by the Brule River State Forest so there is not another home on the Lake Superior shoreline for miles…

Once back to the house, enjoy the 1600 sq foot reclaimed deck just outside the beautiful kitchen and a pantry with all the extra ingredients and spices you may have forgotten. Build a fire with firewood provided in the stone fireplace or lay in a bean bag and pick a book to read from the stocked bookshelves in the loft.

Whether you are looking for a quiet retreat for one, a romantic getaway for two, an authentic Texas vacation for the family, or a fun gathering spot for a group of friends, the barn may be the fun, memorable centerpiece that enhances your visit to Austin with some fun and funky barn character.
