Barn on the Bluff lodging accommodations for groups is breathtaking in the winter.

Looking over the hills from this 100 year old “post and beam” barn, one would almost think that Grant Wood himself had been inspired by this awesome countryside. Completely renovated to maintain a rustic environment, our barn promotes togetherness and fun.

When you reserve the barn, the entire barn is yours. The 30x60 foot hayloft has been converted into five levels for living and sleeping.Relax in a rustic environment that is calm and soothing for all group lodgers

Ranging from three private bedrooms to two dorm-style bedrooms to two lofts (accessible by ladders for the younger set), 20+ could sleep quite comfortably.

You will find a full kitchen, dining for 20 guests, 3 bathrooms, a fireplace, game room, 60’x12’ covered porch and a fire pit, where you can sit outside to enjoy the view that our forefathers affectionately named "Little Switzerland".
