About Beth Kanaga
Hi, I'm Beth Kanaga. As the property manager for Blue Sky Barn, I'm delighted you're considering this exceptional and comfortably elegant country estate! Originally from Monmouth County, NJ, I moved to Hudson in 2008. A few years later, I realized a long-held dream when I launched Bushnell Guest House, a bed and breakfast set in a historic mansion. It's now my privilege and pleasure to help a friend (and former B&B guest) achieve his own vision for Blue Sky Barn!
Why Beth Kanaga chose Craryville
This property has it all: easy access from the Taconic Parkway, close proximity to Hudson, and the perfect home base for sightseeing, recreational activities and destinations like Bard College, Tanglewood and Woodstock. The photos, while lovely, don't fully convey the warmth and elegance of this unique house and grounds. Come experience them for yourself and make lasting memories with family and friends.
What makes this Barn unique
Why split up your group at scattered inns and hotels when you can all stay together here? Save and have fun by cooking meals together in the charming brick kitchen. Enjoy each others' company in the many cozy gathering spaces. Drink in the sunshine with your coffee each morning, and savor pre-dinner cocktails in the lush garden. In this haven from life's hectic pace, you'll sleep more soundly, laugh more often and be truly present with loved ones.

Beth was very responsive with communication. The house was beautiful and we enjoyed our long girls weekend! I would only say for a house that slept that many people there was not enough stuff in the kitchen.
our family of 15 found the barn lovely. Centrally located for activities. Plenty of hideaway spaces for private moments. Beth very responsive to questions. Great lawn and pond area for some exploring as well as nearness to walking hiking areas.
Only suggestion kitchen area could be organized a bit better.
The barn is huge and comfortably accommodated 11 adult and two children. There are lots of bedrooms and privacy. The grounds are beautiful.
Although the barn is very large the common areas are spread out and on the smaller side. The kitchen is tight if you are a large group that enjoys cooking.
What a beyond beautiful house. We had a group of 13 and it was perfect. It was spacious and had so much character. The grounds were also absolutely gorgeous.
The house is so unique and the property is really special. The pond is not for swimming, but it did have fun animals to visit - frogs, snakes, and fish! The house is very old and quirky. The kitchen and outdoor dining area needed a bit more cleaning, but the rest of the house was clean. Overall, it's a beautiful property.
A magical retreat!
We enjoyed this home over New Years weekend and had a wonderful time. The grounds are sweeping and well-maintained, and the house is perfectly appointed, clean, and full of charm. Our party of 11 had plenty of room to spread out and relax, but also come together for dinner and games in front of the fireplace. Beth was available to answer any questions and helped make our stay a seamless one. We can't wait to come back. Thank you for having us!
