About Bruna De Araujo
I am a photo and video editor who came to NYC from Brazil in 1998. My husband is a designer & builder of all things sustainable at Ecosystems Brand. Fourteen years and a child later we felt the urge to return to the best things of our childhood; space, trees, clean air, birds & bees and farm fresh wonderfulness! So we moved up to the magical Hudson Valley.
Bruna De Araujo purchased this Barn in 2012
Why Bruna De Araujo chose Tivoli
At the very beginning of our relationship, my husband and I, rented the Barn together with four other close friends. We fell in love with the place as we fell for each other. He then came to spend a winter at the Barn going through his old sketchbooks and looking into the future. We got married and had a child. Brooklyn was lacking what we were dreaming of and with perfect timing we received an email about the property's sale. We looked at each other and agreed, let's buy it, and we did in April 2012.
What makes this Barn unique
Rustic charm, comfort, warmth and relaxation. The Barn is located in the heart of Dutchess County with Rhinebeck 18 min south and Hudson 18 min north. Bard is a 5 minute drive, the Village of Tivoli is a 5 minute walk. Omega Institute is 30 minutes away. The Hudson River with views of the Catskills is a 10 min bike ride. The creek with the private swimming hole and yoga deck make our spot truly magnificent! Read a book by the pond under the shade of the catalpa tree, watch and hear the birds and take in the summer sun energy. Life is good at the Barn.
Smoking only allowed at the back deck.
The Barn or property are not kid proofed.
Minimum age of primary renter:27

Tucked in nature. Everywhere you look is beauty. Quiet and serene.
Four ladies at The Barn over the NY Sheep & Wool Festival for 3 nights. Charming décor - lovely rustic and touches of whimsy, very comfortable sleeping arrangements - each of us with our "own" sleeping space, well stocked and toasty warm wood stove. Weather didn't allow us to enjoy the outside deck but I am sure that space would be terrific on summer evenings! Perfect location allowed us to walk into town for dinner - where there are several nice restaurants and a cute yarn shop. Our only "need" would be for better lighting to support our evening fiber craft activities :) but we made it work and had a delightful stay!! Thank you to our hosts!
Charming, peaceful respite....
We loved the barn, it’s setting, attention to detail and the sweet town of tivoli. Bruna is an excellent communicator and has done a beautiful renovation of the barn. Lovely walks, drives and towns nearby. We would easily return!
Cute place, wonderful setting, and close to town
The owner was easy to work with and the barn was just as described. We loved how isolated it feels while still being so close to Tivoli town center and easy access to Hudson and Rhinebeck. The barn itself is perfect for a close group of friends and full of Instagram-able moments. The back yard is vast, with a lovely stream, fire pit, yoga platform and a small swimming hole which was too low for us to really use in mid-June. We had a great campfire one night, used the high-quality propane grill, and enjoyed the hammock. Would definitely stay here again!
Every detail tastefully done! Great location.
It is a complete TREAT to be able to stay at this place!
Superb attention to detail and cozy
We originally booked the barn to have a very small wedding elopement because it is so dreamy that tying the knot there would have been something to remember. We ended up changing our plans but decided to have a romantic getaway before the wedding and have the barn to ourselves. The barn is impecable! is clean with everything you might need, including delicious organic coffee and bathroom supplies. The attention to detail on everything (from custom made tags for shampoos and soaps in the bathroom, postcards with stamps ready to go, to logs beautifully stacked to feed the amazing stove), the decoration is rustic and hip and you can tell this place is a pride worth of such TLC. We visited in the peak of the fall and the town is beautiful! We went for a hike walking distance and popped into the local coffee shop for an amazing cup of coffee and a pastry. Bruna and Andrew checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed, they are incredible hosts who go the extra mile for their guests. We arrive to a beautiful care package from them that included delicious local goodies and a cider! All they want in exchange is that you take care of their property as much as they do. We are already planning in coming back to the magical barn next year!
The Barn is located between the lovely Rhinebeck shops & restaurants and Hudson's antique stores and surrounded by wineries and farms where you can pick your own fresh strawberries, your vegetables or buy them off the many farm stands close to us and choose your bottle of wine.
Germantown & Red Hook are 10 minutes away and we are also 30 minutes away from Omega Institute.
