Looking for the next adventure to explore with your friends? Instead of hanging around the city, we suggest trekking out to the countryside and spending some time in a rustic but comfortable barn-turned-Airbnb. These six Ontario barn Airbnbs are the perfect vibe for a cozy weekend away.

From renovated barn lofts to modern hay silos, these converted properties are unique and will guarantee a fun and memorable trip for you and your friends or family.

These stays are catering to a relaxing, rustic, and peaceful environment.

Many also offer canoes, kayaks, and other sporting goods free of charge, and there are hiking trails listed in multiple locations.

You can also visit the many farm animals living on some of these properties! Goats, chickens, ducks, and horses are just some of the new friends you may be able to find.

Because most of all of these properties are out of the GTA, there is significantly less light pollution. This means that stargazing will be a prime activity!

Maybe you’ll even be able to catch a peek of the comet NEOWISE

Lots of these barns were built before the 20th century and have been repurposed as lodging.

It’s like your own little piece of Ontario history!
