    About this property

    Historic Property, 1860's Barn, A One of a Kind!

    Historic vacation home in Durango
    ****The calendar is up to date and current**** Post Built in 1860, this Amish built barn was constructed in north central Indiana just before the outbreak of the Civil War. This excellent example of early hand-hewn post & beam construction was carefully dismantled and transported to the Durango area where it was rebuilt exactly as it originally stood. Located just seven miles outside of Durango, the 'barn' includes a 30 foot high living-dining-kitchen area, one King and five Queen beds, four bathrooms, with plenty of parking and wonderful views (see north porch view above). Furnished with antiques from the Colonial to Civil War period, the barn is trimmed out with 160 year-old wood from the barn. Situated on 11 acres there is plenty of room to walk the property, enjoy the views, and enjoy all that Durango has to offer. The Barn has a king in the master, queen in the second and third bedrooms, and 2 queens in the loft. Enjoy a full kitchen with plenty of seating, and a comfortable living room. Sleeps 10. There is a "lockoff" available at the barn that can be connected at an additional cost. This would add another master suite with master bath and a loft area with a sleeper sofa and one more bathroom. Also, this would give you an additional full kitchen and living area. Perfect for large families that want to spread out. Rent one side of the barn, or both Each side is priced separately . . . please inquire for a full description of the South side and prices. Also available for families . . . a high chair, pac-n-play, and misc. baby items! Admit it, wouldn't you rather be here?

    5/5 Excellent

      This place is so great

      Overall, a wonderful nice place to stay.


        Hot and stinky

        The property was nice for our friend reunion. Unfortunately there is no air conditioning. One evening at 8pm it was 85 degrees INSIDE! The water in the home smelled and tasted like sewer. You MUST bring bottled water and your own ice. The stench was terrible and the soft water was slippery and dangerous. Trash had not been removed from the previous clients and the grill ran out of fuel with an empty back up canister. For the price it was very disappointing.

        5/5 Excellent



          5/5 Excellent

            Beautiful property with wildlife in view of the deck!

            We had a great time. Wonderful location, close to both our hunting lease and Durango. We will definitely book again!

            4/5 Good

              WE all loved the quiet setting and the awesome barn!

              We really enjoyed our stay. Everyone loved the barn! The complaint people had was that the bedrooms were warm, even with the fans on and windows open. There were no windows to open in the loft, so no cross ventilation. We all had a wonderful time, Thanks!
