Inside v. Outside - The Contrast is Real
As you take a look at the pictures below, you'll notice how different the inside and outside really are. Your first impression - looking at the property from the outside - is that it's a run-of-the-mill barn. But once you're inside, you'll feel like you're at home with all the creature comforts you're used to.
According to the Airbnb listing, the downstairs area has been refurbished with stone walls and wood-beamed architecture. The living and dining areas are spacious and roomy. There's a well-equipped kitchen, laundry room, and a bedroom with a queen-sized bed.
On the second floor, you'll find a secondary living room and dining area which is perfect for entertaining, and another bedroom.
On the third floor, there's a king-sized bed in the loft that overlooks the second floor.
Alpacas, Chickens, and More
Did we mention that Bear Creek Farm is also a working alpaca and chicken farm? Guests have access to the animals (under the close supervision of staff members) and can enjoy everything nature has to offer on the farm.
There's also a hot tub and sauna on the premises.
The listing notes that the WiFi and cell service aren't that great in the area, which the host points out gives guests more opportunities to enjoy nature and time with family.
