Perfectly located in the heart of the picturesque Hudson Valley sits Barn on the Pond, a rustic yet uniquely elegant barn-style retreat surrounded by lush, verdant grounds and magnificent mountain views. Perched on approximately four acres of private property in the Upstate New York Catskill region, this hidden oasis of peace and tranquility marries the charm of the turn-of-the-century barn and pastoral landscape with modern luxuries and amenities. This one of a kind residence and event space nestled between popular destinations, Saugerties and Woodstock, provides the discerning visitor with unparalleled delights and surprises. Whether staying for a meditative yoga retreat or a quaint country wedding, Barn on the Pond offers guests endless possibilities in rural entertainment and leisure.
The surrounding terrain bewitchingly transforms from season to season while Barn on the Pond overlooks a swimming pond, wildflower meadow, and fire pit – representing the four essential elements on which any solid and balanced foundation is based (water, earth, fire and of course, air). The transition from outdoors to indoors is nearly seamless with the floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the home, creating an infinite view and feel of the terrain from most vantage points. The entire property is a treat for the five senses: the plush velvety texture of the chairs in the main room; the scent of fresh thyme planted between the rocks of the fire pit; the sound of the birds chirping and the rhythmic croaking of neighborhood frogs; the awe-inspiring vision of the glowing sundescending behind the mountains; and the tart burst of flavor of a chokeberry from the meadow. And in the midst of this symphony of the senses lies Barn on the Pond.
Behind its striking cherry red facade, lies a jewel of an interior, exuding personality and charm and meticulously designed for comfort, convenience, recreation and pleasure. Soaring wood beamed ceilings and cozy fireplaces instantly dazzle guests as they step into what feels like their very own home. They are greeted with a symphony of wood textures and inviting decorative touches as their eyes dance across the spacious living area, perfect for a gathering with friends. They can revel in the beauty of nature in the lovely solarium with an outdoor room above, outside on the spacious deck or from the abundant patio space. With 2 bedrooms, a loft and 2 baths, Barn on the Pond comfortably accommodates up to 11 guests as a vacation rental. The historic character of the barn is balanced by a state-of-the-art kitchen and other contemporary touches that provide the best in modern-day living. Barn on the Pond is the ultimate year-round country destination, providing limitless options all on one beautiful property. From the fire pit to the fire places, the solarium to the outdoors floating bed, the wildflower meadow to the pond, everything a guest could desire is offered at the incomparable Barn on the Pond.

Tripp has an amazing property! Every detail has been well thought out to best accommodate your party. We used the venue for our engagement party and made it into a weekend getaway with our friends. Tripp and assistant, Sarah, were there every step of the way to assist with logistics. I can't wait to find a reason to come back!Sent on 08/14/2019

Charm and Simplicity - Perfect for a Wedding
Tripp was accommodating and easy going. The venue itself is extremely well decorated and expertly setup. There are many decks and various areas for guests to have great conversations and connect. We received so many complements on the venue - too many to count! The drive from NYC was not punishing and actually pleasantly relaxing. The airstream camper that provided extra sleeping room was huge hit. After the dancing subsided, we went down to the fire pit and gathered around a glorious bonfire which everyone really loved.Sent on 04/24/2019
Tripp provides flexible options for catering, from having catering staff onsite, to doing a drop-off service. We elected to do the latter and Tripp set us up with their concierge, Sarah, who handled everything for us without the expense of having a catering team in the kitchen. Tripp provided a great list of vendors for everything one would need for a wedding which was super helpful. The vendors were really nice and did a great job.
The Barn is also well suited to have a DJ setup, with an excellent sound system.
The wedding pictures came out fantastic with the greenery and pond set as the backdrop. The birds chirping away in a veritable symphony in the morning was really great. The price was also absolutely reasonable and my friends that have paid 3x more for cheesy restaurant halls for their weddings were green with envy =)

Amazing and gorgeous wedding weekend! BoP was extremely helpful with all the event planning as well as our five-day stay. The whole family spent the entire weekend there enjoying the peaceful atmosphere and all the in-house activities, especially the nightly fire pit. No one wanted to go out and tour the town since they enjoyed themselves so much in the barn itself! Our wedding day could not have been more perfect and the backdrop for all of our pictures were EXACTLY what we were looking for. My husband and I can't imaging having spent our wedding day anywhere else. Many thanks to Elissa, Tripp and Sarah for making this the most special weekend and day of our lives.Sent on 10/12/2017
