Yearly Family Vacation

The Elk Barn is a wonderful place to stay. You couldn’t ask for a more efficient and gracious host as you will find in Meggen. It is spacious and there is something for everyone. We have been to a lot of VRBO’s that were considered “luxurious “ but none was as clean and well maintained as this one. I can’t… Read more “Yearly Family Vacation”

A Rare Gem in the Wilderness

I’m not sure I can even adequately describe how wonderful this property made us feel. The Barn was immaculate, clean, every detail in function and decoration has been thought of and implemented. You are literally staying in luxury within a private rural setting in a lush valley with a crystal clear stream running through the property. Deer are seen daily… Read more “A Rare Gem in the Wilderness”

All 24 people who came had a great time and enjoyed their… Read more “Beautiful, Spacious, & Exceeded our Expectations!”

Amazing Property and Host

We stayed at the Elk Barn Inn the end of July for our family reunion of 18 people. 1st thing I can say is the listing pictures do not do this property justice. Megan was the perfect host.

An Amazing Retreat

This place was awesome: very clean, everything worked, incredibly decorated, the pond was great for the kids (and adults) to play in, Meggen fully stocks it with waters/sodas/snacks/breakfast items, anything you could ever imagine needing in the kitchen (spices, utensils, etc.)… if you are okay with being away from a big city, you WILL NOT find a better place for… Read more “An Amazing Retreat”

Very well thought out. Worked well for our family get-away.

Meggen has gone to great lengths to make sure all your needs are covered when you stay at the Elk Barn Inn. Kids and great grandparents could both be napping while twenty somethings were playing video games and dinner was being prepped – all without any interference from others. The decor is also something to be greatly admired. Indoor and… Read more “Very well thought out. Worked well for our family get-away.”
