Located by our organic working farm, the Barhouse rentals offer private retreats like none other in the area. A pastoral setting is the backdorp for pleasant rural living by the farm. Leave behind the hectic, fast-paced world and take pleasure in the sounds and smells of nature. Our rentals offer visitors the opportunity to get away from it all and to meet our critters and enjoy farm fresh eggs from our sassy hens. Relax on the porch or deck, take a nap, a walk or bike ride and enjoy the scenery. You're sure to get a glimpse of Southern small-farm life.
Only five miles west of Carrboro, we are an easy drive to Chapel Hill and historic Hillsborough, NC. The UNC campus and NC Botanical Garden are not far away, and Mapleview Farm Ice Cream Store is right around the corner. Two popular wedding venues, Snipes Farm Retreat and Rock Quarry Farm, are no more than a mile from our farm, so if you're in need of accommodations, please contact us.
We have two separate properties by the farm that we call The Barnhouse Cottage and The Barnhouse Too! Our rentals are considered extended stay for those in transition or relocating to the area. We do, however, offer short-term visits if the rentals are vacant*. Each comes fully furnished and fully equipped to make the transition smooth and easy. Your stay will be enhanced by the many comforts and unique features found in each dwelling that gives them a charm of their own. Very private.
*For short-term rentals, please see Rates and Reservations.
- Two credit references or credit report required and deposit.
- We accept cash, personal or traveler's checks.
