Just back from a weekend at the Spirit Horse Farm and we are already plotting to get back there. The house is unbelievably beautiful. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Having planned events and retreats for various organizations before, this was far and away the best experience I have ever had. The owner, Guy, and his wife are wonderful in terms of both responsiveness and hospitality. Their description of the amenities was spot-on; there were no surprises. The farm building itself is one of the most unique places I have ever stayed. It is well-decorated and perfectly-equipped for entertaining or meeting, containing guitars, drum sets, an amazing kitchen, a pool table, a bar, plenty of seating, and ample sleeping space. It rained during our stay, but we still found ourselves with plenty to do. The property is rustic and worth a walk around, boasting horses, bulls, and peacocks that are all quite friendly. For those who want a more camp- or cabin-like experience with hotel-like amenities, or for those who are planning a getaway for a moderate number of people, this is the ideal space. It is also in a very beautiful and scenic area of Connecticut. If this is close to a place your travels take you, I would highly recommend looking it up. It is ideal as a home base for exploration or as a weekend getaway.

We rented the barn for a girls getaway scrapbooking weekend. The space was perfect, open, airy and just plain fun! The upstairs easily accommodated all 8 of us. The grounds were beautiful and we really enjoyed looking at the horses, peacocks and other animals all around us. Guy was a very gracious host and made sure we had everything we needed. I would definitely recommend staying here to everyone and can't wait to book our next retreat!

The barn was an enjoyable experience from the moment we drove on to the sprawling property. Guy, our host was extremely gracious and welcoming. The Barn, while being rustic and authentic, had so many beautiful amenities, and all of the personal touches (special snacks left for us, luxurious soaps, high-end appliances, etc, etc...) made our time spent there truly enjoyable! There was never a lack of indoor or outdoor actives to keep us (adults or children) busy - either jamming on the guitars, keyboard, drums, or playing a competitive game of pool, or just curling up to one of the two fireplaces to read one of the many coffee table books there for you to relax with. We will definitely be back in the spring with our motorcycle, the winding roads in the area were amazing, and look forward to spending some time relaxing in the outdoor pool!

We were looking for a relaxing weekend getaway in the country. The Spirit Horse Farm met all our expectations and more! We are already making plans to return in the summer, if possible. The ecclectic atmosphere in "The Barn" was awesome and we especially enjoyed the organic food and goodies that were given to us during our stay. There are both spacious and cozy rooms throughout the barn and various forms of entertainment. We never even left the site! Dan and Erika, Connecticut
