Amazing family gathering location!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Your Barn was a wonderful place to spend a week with our family. The open space, comfortable beds, and well-equipped kitchen was perfect for us! We baked pizza, hiked the hill, and enjoyed the sunsets on the deck! We could not have asked for a better place to be the week before our son's wedding at The Roxbury Barn.

I hope we have the opportunity to return to this magical place.

Caroline and Gary.

Amazing property to get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a group of 6 couples spent 3 nights at the barn to celebrate a birthday and get away from the city. The space itself is very cool, unique and secluded. The barn is massive, easily accommodating our group. It was well stocked with basics like sheets, towels, etc., but plan well if you are planning on cooking since the nearest store is 30 minutes away and closes early. The owners were very accommodating with the check-in/out process and other requests that we had. Overall, this was a great experience and I would gladly rent here again in the future.

Block Party Wedding Success

  • 5 of 5

I cannot stop raving about this place. It was absolutely beautiful and there could not have been a different venue for my wedding. NO WAY. I have so many things that I loved about it that I'm at a loss for what to even write

I was lucky enough to stay in the barn for a few days prior to the wedding, which was key to prep. The large kitchen was perfect for baking all my desserts. The house was so spacious, that no one ever felt overcrowded. Sleeping arrangements were a piece of cake. One of my favorite areas was the tatami mat dining area. I have dreamed of having a tatami mat room since high school and it was everything I thought it would be. I didn't need to be having a meal; just lying down on the mat was so relaxing. My friends would just repeat, "This place is amazing" over and over.

The day of the wedding, the caterer, tent rental company, and guests were able to navigate around each other without issue. We were able to have the ceremony in the front and reception in the side yard. My guests and I were able to party the night away in this secluded area, without worrying about disturbing others.My dog was ecstatic having all that land to run around.

The owner and the overseer of the property were wonderful as well. As many questions I had before the wedding and even the week of the wedding, they were able to quickly respond.

A DIY wedding is a lot of work, but to have it in such an amazing space was a blessing. My family was so impressed that they even talked about having a family reunion there one day.

Couldn't have been happier with the cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was beautiful and we had a great time. It was an outdoorsy bachelor party with 14 men in attendance and we loved the place.

Great stay for our bachelorette party!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this gorgeous barn for my sister's camp themed bachelorette party! There was plenty of room for all of us to sleep and tons of space for everyone to hang out, have fun, and even do yoga! Rita was easy to work with and answered all of my questions. This is the perfect play for a true get away!

Amazing property! We made pizza every day and used the outdoor fire pit every night. We would definitely recommend this to friends and hope to be back ourselves.
