This classic country barn has been completely updated and is full of modern conveniences, country charm, and a lot of local history!  You will feel far away from it all as you look over the acres of land all around you but you’re actually very close to everything Catskills!

Sit on the deck or in the Adirondack chairs on the hill and get lost in the sunsets and the amazing mountain views!

The bedroom loft looks over the open living space and the modern furnishings blend in with the original barn wood, posts, and beams. The fully updated kitchen makes meals easy. Dine inside or on the back deck.

Skylights bring in the sun and invite you to see the clouds and the stars from every room!

  • Beautiful, quiet location. Great views. Comfortable, very clean home. Loved our stay. We will be back soon.

  • Had a great long weekend at the Barn! The pictures really don't do this place justice. It was bigger, nicer, cozier, and warmer than I was even expecting. We cooked a few meals and the kitchen was equipped with anything you might need. They also had books, puzzles and a ton of TV subscriptions. Great location - very private but close to a lot of nearby towns and shopping. Jason and Phyllis also provided a ton of great recommendations for shopping, eating, and emergency services. There were a good amount of house rules to follow so just be sure to read those before check-in and when you depart. Overall, we had a great experience and cozy vacation!

  • We had a wonderful stay. The cabin was beautiful in a convenient location to skiing. The cabin was also thoughtfully furnished and equipped with everything we needed for our stay.

  • This is one of the loveliest airbnb experiences I've had. My boyfriend and I went with our dogs for two weeks for a writer's retreat. It was so peaceful and beautiful and we were able to get a lot of writing done. It's definitely a place I'd go to again and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for an escape.

  • Beautiful place with a wonderful view. Kitchen well stocked, everything very clean. Love the wood fireplace/stove inside and fire pit outside! Recommend!

  • What a lovely space! The barn was super quiet and peaceful and we loved our stay. The place was a bit dim at night (it could use a few more lamps and a couple of bulbs were out) but really that didn’t distract much from our stay. You should be aware that the host will send you a lease agreement for the stay since you are staying at a property managed by a vacation rental company. I highly recommend staying at the great Gray barn!

  • This place is LOVELY and is just atmospheric...exactly what it says on the tin: serene, lovely views all around, coolest atmosphere in the barn, lots of character - and LOTS of cleared area/land around the house for walks in the morning with your coffee. We saw deer in the yard every day, stars for miles when the sky was clear at night, and the location is a hop skip and a jump from TONS of hiking. The wifi was excellent (two of us having to do some remote work while there for the week, plus streaming Netflix/Hulu/etc with zero problem!), the kitchen was GREAT (truly - I cook a lot and always bring a few things I am used to airbnbs not having, but this kitchen had ALL THE THINGS *happy dance*). There is plenty of heat - we could make it as warm as we wanted inside in the cold November weather. The woodpile was plenty stocked and we really enjoyed using the wood stove inside for heat. We mostly did a lot of hiking and wrote/worked inside and enjoyed Netflix and the views - but there are tons of cute towns we drove through on the way to our daily hikes - would love to come back once covid is under control and explore restaurants and shops! Highly recommend this lovely place for a cozy getaway, particularly for a a couple or solo (plus a dog :).

  • Just returned from a week at the barn... Words don't do it justice. The views!! Hot dang wow. The interior of the barn was just great, a nice mix of modern and rustic. It's really a special place and I can not recommend it enough. The pictures just don't do this place justice. Jason and Phyllis were great, super responsive. 5/5.

  • The barn is in a beautiful location in the Catskills. You are central to many of the best hikes and towns to explore. I highly recommend the Barn for anyone wanting to live a little bit off the grid, but still having all of the amenities.

  • Just returned from a week at the barn. We had an amazing time! The pictures don't really do this place justice. A lot less rustic than we were expecting. Beautiful modern refrigerator and dishwasher. Well stocked kitchen. Awesome mountain views/stargazing on clear nights. Family of deer stopped by the field every dawn/dusk! Great location, just about 10 minutes to the supermarket (Freshtown). Jason and Phyllis were super responsive. 5/5.

  • THIS BARN BLEW ME AWAY! I spent two full weeks at The Great Grey Barn for a private writing retreat and everything about the place was perfect and blew away my expectations. When I was looking for a secluded, private getaway I came across this location and just decided to book it and hope for the best. I wasn't quite sure what I was getting myself into. The reason for my trip was to tuck myself away in a private space to get done work on a screenplay. This was the PERFECT writing retreat. For two weeks, my dog and I woke up every morning to the beautiful skylit barn and vast views of the Catskill Mountain range. I walked down the beautiful spiral staircase, sipped on some coffee and made breakfast in the sleek, stylish and fully equipped kitchen that sits tucked away under the lofted bedroom. The deck attached to the barn is great for some outdoor dining or grilling while gazing at the beautiful landscape. At sunset, I took some logs from the fully stocked firewood shed, built a small fire at the top of the hill, away from the barn and sipped on some whiskey. When I first arrived, I wasn't quite sure that I was at the right home! The barn was larger than I expected and the amazing hosts left the outdoor lights on just in case I was arriving in the evening. Because the property is so secluded, arriving at night was pitch black and difficult to see. However, the hosts' little touches like leaving the outdoor lights on for safety and visibility made it super simple for me to get in with the lockbox and I immediately felt right at home. The place is super tidy, clean, and well equipped with everything you need. I probably stayed longer than most guests and the only downfall was that there is no washer / dryer in the unit. However, that was fully transparent before booking and I made sure to pack extra undies :) The best part about Jason & Phyllis' hospitality was when I asked if they had a clothing line in case I needed to do laundry, Jason showed up the next day with a clothing line to hang and clothing pins to make sure I was able to do laundry if the need came up! Such a nice touch of generosity and courtesy! When I was leaving this modern, yet nostalgic gem of a find... I had a hard time leaving! I felt like I was leaving a piece of myself there after two weeks of creative purging onto my keyboard. I'll definitely be back soon and can't express more how much I loved staying at this barn. This is why AirBNB exists... Finding a "home" in your stay whether it's two days or two weeks. Thank you Jason & Phyllis. I'll be back soon.

  • beautiful place and location great getaway to unwind with girlfriend and dogs. very clean and great layout and tons of local recommendations

  • Perfect get away for a couple or small family. Loved the wood stove and outdoor fire pit. We were there over New Years so not many eating establishments in open in the area but we cooked in the cabin. The kitchen had everything you would need. It was a perfect way to end a year and begin a new one. ❤️that it was dog friendly. Our golden, Max loved running in the field.

  • Thank you for a wonderful stay at the Gray Barn. It was easy communicating with Jason throughout the rental process and stay. We loved the mountain views, peacefulness and seclusion. We appreciated that we didn't have to leave very far to explore the myriad of trails on the property and bordering lands and breathe in the essence of the woods. The Gray Barn provided for everything we needed to stay cozy and warm (loved the red wood burning stove and soft bedding). The kitchen was also well equipped for us to prepare a Thanksgiving feast that lasted all day and night. We would have extended and stayed longer, but Winter Storm Ezekiel had other plans for us - thank goodness we listened to Jason's sugesstion to escape early. Needless to say, the Gray Barn is on top of our list of places to stay should we need to R & R in the Catskills again.

  • The barn is a very unique space that offers a lot of charm at great value. The isolation of the barn and coziness of the interior lets you truly relax and enjoy a peaceful retreat. Jason and Phyllis were very easy to communicate with and responded quickly to all messages, and were even kind enough to allow early check-in. Would highly recommend and definitely go back!

  • The place was absolutely stunning, and so cozy. We loved having a fire after a long day of hiking, and wished we could have stayed longer.

  • Beautiful view from the barn. Really appreciated being surrounded by nature. Thanks again for a great stay

  • The barn is much more stylish and modern than we expected--a beautiful space on a very serene piece of property with a great view. Thank you, Jason and Phyllis!

  • Amazing house perfect for relaxing. 11/10!!!

  • Such a peaceful find. Rustic barn with all the right amenities inside. Clean, cozy and comfy! Firepit with gorgeous rolling mountain view....perfect for smores for the kids and a glass of wine for us. Lots of space to run around. Close to cute towns and great hikes!

  • A cozy place with a great view of the mountains.

  • Spectacular!

  • We spent NYE here and it couldn't have been more perfect. The cabin is rustic but clean and polished, with so much character and beautiful views. Personal favorite was the window by the bed in the loft; so peaceful to wake up to. The location is great, about 10-15 mins to several small towns with enough going on for an afternoon or meal out on the town. We explored Andes, Margaretville, Arkville, Pine Hill & Roxbury all in one day. We are frequent AirBNB users as well as hosts and this place gets a 10/10 in our books.

  • I thought the barn was very cute from the photos on Airbnb but wow this place is even better in person. The moment I walked in, I was blown away by how charming, beautiful, and clean this space is. The barn holds a lot of rustic charm with the large dark wood planks, spiral staircase, and wood burning stove, but it retains all the modern pleasures of a well outfitted kitchen and clean bathrooms. If you are considering staying here, do not hesitate to book it. You will have an incredible time. The hosts are extremely thoughtful with each little detail and I couldn’t have imagined a dreamier stay. I can’t wait to come back during the summer to enjoy the backyard and grill.

  • I stayed with my boyfriend and our dogs in early November. The barn is amazing and the pictures don’t do it justice. The view is spectacular and it is very private. Everything you need is provided, pots, pans, spices, baggies, wood for the wood burning stove along with fire starters, everything! Jason and Phyllis provide info on places to go and eat, and reapond quickly while giving you your space.

  • Pictures are exactly as advertised. Hosts were so thoughtful in providing a great amount of information on local tips. The barn was so clean and modern inside with a perfect mix of the country. There are no neighbors and this is a very quiet and relaxing experience. The wood burning stove is excellent. Also the kitchen supplies were top notch! Thanks for a great stay.

  • Nice place. Secluded and quiet. Great place for everyone to get out city. Lots of neat towns close by.

  • This place is wonderful... the privacy and view alone make the deal! Such a neat structure, we loved looking at the barn planks and beams and how it was converted to a home. It's cozy, well appointed, and very comfortable. The kitchen is great, all you could ask for and plenty of room to cook. It's nice that there is a half bath on the first floor for convenience and visitors. Our favorite was the location, close to town but not too close, and the adjacent woods were full of trails that we took our dog on, everybody was happy! Did I mention the view? It's spectacular. The house is in the middle of a large sloping field surrounded by woods... Layers of (Website hidden by Airbnb) neighbors visible... Beautiful and peaceful. Would definitely recommend!

  • We loved everything about this house. It was absolutely perfect for a two-person getaway, and Jason and Phyllis were generous and accommodating hosts.

  • This place exceeded our expectations! We spent most of the time lounging around. The place is furnished comfortably and the view is amazing. You can't see any neighbors. There are some nice speakers you can plug your phone into and play music. The sliding glass doors, windows, and skylights let in the beautiful daylight. We enjoyed cooking in their kitchen which has everything you need! Mixing bowls, sharp knives and cutting boards, even a microplane. Everything is easy to find and put away. The place is very clean and well-maintained. The water pressure in the shower is a bit lower than we are used to but it works fine and shouldn't discourage anyone from staying here. I would recommend this place to anyone and I would definitely go back for another visit in the future.

  • This Grey Barn is amazing! It has all you need to relax and enjoy your time. There is not a single thing that would be annoying or disturbing your peace and a pure joy of spending your time in this house in total harmony with the space and nature outside. Would love to go back in the fall and winter and just anytime.

  • I just returned from a idyllic weekend in the Catskills with my girlfriend. The "barn" is a stylishly-appointed home with wonderful amenities, a beautiful view, and great comfort. While the building structure appears to be old, it has been lovingly updated with excellent windows allowing for a nice cross-breeze on a hot day, facilitated further by an ample supply of fans throughout the home. We felt very comfortable staying as a couple and while spacious, the place is set up for two people (the sofa bed in the living room could work in a pinch, but wouldn't be my first choice for a place to sleep). The grounds are well-groomed and balance comfort with feeling you are right in nature. The house is also well-protected from neighbors and you can't see anyone else from any part of the property. The location is also very convenient for quiet drives to Northern Catskills venues, with a good pizza restobar nearby. We also loved the hours we spent swimming in Big Pond in Andes, which is a 45-minute drive away. We would recommend this property to anyone, so long as we weren't hoping to stay the same weekend!

  • This was our second time staying at the Barn, we loved it so much when we first visited last November, that we wanted to come back in the spring. We spent a 3-day weekend with our little 3-year old, who also loved being there, running around the house. The house is perfect and very charming, the scenery around is stunning. Jason was very helpful and understanding when we have to change the dates for our trip, and overall very communicative and helpful. This is definitely our to-go place in the Catskills, and we hope to be back again. Thank you, Jason and Phyllis!

  • The stay was amazing - the barn has everything one could wish for. It is very stylish, but there is also even an LTE signal (T-Mobile) as well as pretty fast Wi-Fi. We went with 2 small kids and they had a blast!

  • Great stay. Very quiet area. The home was clean, adorable, and perfect for a secluded getaway from NYC.

  • The Great Gray Barn was perfect for our weekend getaway from the city. My wife and I had ski passes at Belleayre, and this property was an easy 10 min drive right down the road. We originally wanted to stay somewhere closer to the mountain, but for only 5 minutes closer, prices were double... What's 5 minutes??? Anyway, we had all the amenities we'd need. An awesome working fire stove, coffee maker, fridge for anything we bought at the nearby grocery store ("Freshtown")... Spiral staircase leading up to the bedroom loft. Everything was super clean. It snowed while we were there, which only added to the charm of the whole property. There was extra firewood under a shed connected to the house. We had a TV w/ a few cool "mountain'ish" DVD's to choose from (or we could've brought our own)... Side note: we watched "The Shining." Perfect scary movie for Catskill vacation. We dined out one night at this awesome restaurant (Peekamoose) not too far - a few miles away... The other night, we went to Freshtown and cooked in... We didn't need Jason and Phyllis at all, but didn't need to. BUT they were always just a quick phone call away if I needed them. Leading up to the weekend, they sent over a lot of great suggestions based on what I told them we were looking to do and their knowledge of the area. We will definitely be staying at either the Great Gray Barn again, or one of their other properties ("Pine Hollow Lodging")...

  • Awesome space surrounded by woods, couldn’t ask for more! Looking forward to come back for another getaway :)

  • Amazing space. The views of the mountains are perfect. Great fireplace. Super cozy and close to many of our favorite little Catskills towns. Jason and Phyllis do a great job of making you feel at home. Will be back again for sure.

  • "Amazing space. The views of the mountains are perfect. Great fireplace. Super cozy and close to many of our favorite little Catskills towns. Jason and Phyllis do a great job of making you feel at home. Will be back again for sure."

  • "AMAZING! The best kept secret in the Catskills!! 10 minutes to Belleayre and about 15 to Plattekill for skiing and tubing! Barn was clean and so spacious! Immaculate. Despite single digit temps we were cozy and warm! Wood burning stove was an awesome additional heat source! We can't wait to return!! Jason and Phyllis were super helpful!!"

  • "The barn provided the perfect environment for a winter escape from NYC. The barn is very peaceful and quiet! Very secluded, not very many houses around. The deck offers spectacular views of the mountains. The rustic wood feel is so cozy and calming. We had the wood burning all day and night! We highly recommend this place to just get away and relax."

  • "What a lovely gem of a house! My husband and our 3-year old son spent a weekend in November there, but despite the short days and cold weather - our stay was definitely much more pleasant by choosing to stay at Jason and Plyllis's place. It's very cosy, extremely charming and having a fireplace in November was perfect! The house was clean, instructions very precise, and we hope we can come back there in the spring."

  • "Cozy and clean cabin/barn experience in a great area"

  • "My wife and I were looking for a secluded getaway weekend, and this was the perfect place for it. I highly recommend Jason and Phyllis’s place."

  • "Wonderful spot. Beautiful, simple, super clean, great views, quiet. Good for a couple who like rustic, romantic. Great hosts too!"

  • "Great location, great house, amazing views, and great hosts. This place is perfect for a weekend getaway. Has the ideal mix of isolation and accessibility. Thank you for a great time."

  • "The perfect getaway! Beautiful skies, warm fires and a cozy place. Perfect for a romantic vacation from the world!"

  • "My boyfriend and I absolutely loved this property! The barn was beautiful and the view matches it! I would highly recommend if you are looking for a serene getaway!"

  • "The Great Grey Barn was exceptional!!! Distant views, open serene country space, and air and barn itself was breathtaking! Jason and Phyllis are the best hosts we have experienced in the Catskills so far. Thanks for letting us stay at this magical place!"

  • "We booked a fairly last minute weekend trip for the Fourth of July and stumbled upon the Great Gray Barn. It had everything we wanted- open spaces - great views - and privacy. Overall it exceeded our expectations- we truly felt like we were "away from it all" but we were also just a quick drive to a ton of cute shops, incredible hiking / mountain views, and great restaurants. It's also a quick 30-40 minute drive to a great local brewery in Westkill! The house itself is big, cozy, and very clean- and view from the back porch is spectacular! Jason and Phylis were extremely friendly, attentive and even went out of their way to stop by and personally assist with a request. We definitely recommend and will be staying with them again!"
