The Peace Barn is a cozy retreat close to art and culture and parks. You’ll love the place because of the outdoor space and the comfy beds. My place is good for families, couples, and furry friends.
The Peace Barn is a rustic venue sitting on 15 acres of private land which can be used for group retreats, reunions, music festivals, weddings, film making, and camping. An outdoor 16x16 stage with seating for up to 150 is located on the property, making it perfect for entertainment, ceremonies, and more. There is a studio next to the house available for yoga, pilates, meditation and other group activities. The stage and studio are available for rental separately.
The tree deck (for ceremonies, performances, etc.) and Studio (for yoga classes, meditation, group classes, etc.) are available for an extra fee. Parking is available for up to 40 cars in rear lot. Please inquire.
My co-host offers amenities and services that you will love. They can answer any questions you have about the accommodations, make reservations for you, stock the fridge, and coordinate group functions.
All areas of the Peace Barn are available except the back room, the glass blowing hut, and an RV that is used by the owner. Outside, there is 3/4 mile of hiking trails, camping area, a gazebo with hammock, a large open field, a meditation spot by the lake, and plenty of space for large tents.
The owner lives on property most of the time in a separate and secured area of the house. When guests stay, they would be in an RV a few hundred yards away, but a storm caused damage to the RV and they need to temporarily use the separate area. The property manager is available to answer any pre-arrival questions, check you in, deliver any amenities you might need, or handle any problems that may arise. This information is in your packet.
Deep River and the surrounding communities have just about everything you could want for virtually any taste. If a big city vibe is what you re after, Boston and New York City are only 2 hours away, making our place an ideal home base for foreign travelers. Our co-host has a huge list of places and things to do, literally a personal concierge while you re staying here. They are experts in the CT River Valley area and can reach out to you once you book to find out what kinds of things you like to do. And if you are not coming by car, we can pick you up at the train station in Westbrook or Old Saybrook.
In the winter, there is a lovely sauna off the master bedroom that you can use. We will have a small pile of wood you can use for the wood burning stove. We can furnish XC skis, ice skates, or snow shoes upon request.
We should mention, please bring your own WIFI hotspot if you would like WIFI. We have good coverage with Verizon.
All other details about the place can be found in the packet.
