Lodging Spotlight: Turquoise Barn

Turquoise Barn in Bloomville, NY, is a very unique and intimate destination for weddings, retreats and workshops in the Catskills. Established in 2003 by two Brooklyn artists, the vacation and event center is located off the beaten path amidst rural views, organic gardens and natural ponds. Whether you’re here for a private retreat or an event, you’ll savor breathing in fresh mountain air and restoring your body and senses. Turquoise Barn is green certified and eco-friendly with everything designed to give you a purifying, transformative experience.

Those planning a private retreat have four large guestrooms to choose from in the historic 1860s carriage house, beautifully renovated by owners Michelle and Michael themselves with recycled and reclaimed materials towards a simple rustic elegance. Imagine high ceilings, handcrafted furnishings and artwork in your private room, and wide open fields right outside your window. Get your day off to a wholesome start by feasting on a yummy vegan raw breakfast created by Michelle. Upon request, she'll offer personal chef service throughout your stay, preparing delicious meals with ingredients often sourced from her own garden or nearby farms. Massages, yoga, reiki, and other forms of therapy are available to guests, too.

Now picture a wedding or special event here... An intimate ceremony in the barn or the carriage house, or a larger celebration on the event field with wedding tents and a dance floor – rustic chic no matter what your choice. Stay the whole weekend and sleep in the carriage house or camp out on the field. The starry sky over the beautiful mountains will make your experience nothing short of magical.

Make sure to keep an eye on all the workshops and learning vacations offered at Turquoise Barn throughout the year. Food, art, and nature are at the center of learning with the goal of creating an opportunity for growth and healing.

"The Turquoise Barn is a rare gem in Upstate NY. It is peaceful and beautiful. Michelle's knowledge of raw and vegan food is extensive and the meals we had there were delicious and stretched our palates in wonderful ways. I only wish I lived closer and could go to her workshops and retreats more often."
