The Old Barn Resort
Hostel If camping isn’t your thing, try our hostel located in our charming historic barn. Modeled after European hostels, there are convenient restroom facilities and a commons area with furnished kitchenette and living room with TV. OPEN YEAR-ROUND!
The two bunkhouse-style rooms, one family style room and one semi- private room in the lower part of the barn range in size from two single beds up to sixteen bunk beds. The family style room rents for a minimum of 2 people up to six.  This room is newly decorated with a queen size bed and 2 sets of bunkbeds.  Any of our rooms are perfect whether you are alone or with a group. We have several groups of visitors and families where some people camp and others utilize the hostel. This is a nice way for everyone in the group to have the accommodations they like and still be together on the property.  Sorry no pets allowed in the Hostel or any building at the resort. The European hostel atmosphere and the barn, with its original limestone foundation and historic features--such as original grain chutes and wagon scales--make the hostel an unusual and fun place to stay. Newly remodeled restroom and shower facilities are just down the hall. The commons room includes television and kitchenette area with a refridgerator, microwave, coffee pot, toaster, sink, miscellaneous dishes and utensils, and several outlets to use for electric griddles, crock pots and other small appliances. Of course, you can also forget cooking and come to our on-site restaurant and bar. Lunch and dinner are served daily from mid-April until mid-October and are served Wednesday through Sunday for the rest of the year.
Hostel guests are welcome to use all resort facilities such as the pool, sand volleyball, basketball, and more. There is even a bonfire pit for you to use because we know you'll want to sit outside and enjoy the evening air once you realize that mosquitoes are naturally rare in these parts. You can also enjoy the nightly chorus of coyotes, crickets, frogs and whippoorwills. You'll never believe that there are so many stars. At daybreak, you can play a round of golf at Rivers' Bend (our own 18-hole golf course) or hop on your bicycle to enjoy the property around the resort or in one of the nearby quaint towns.
