The Barn Retreat is a unique experience to stay in a completely renovated self contained dwelling within a historic barn.

The space
With 18th century charm, Shilo Farm offers comfortable accommodations with rejuvenation and convenience in mind. The feel of the home has been described as rustic elegant with an eclectic flair and our walls are filled with a unique collection of original art for inspiration and reflection.

The Barn Retreat is a unique opportunity to stay in a completely renovated self contained UNIT (cozy at 500 square feet) within a barn. No detail was overlooked during the creation of this space; from the river rock path inlayed in a cork floor to a shower flanked by two cedar tree trunks harvested from the property. On the first level there is a composting toilet that was custom built and made from western red cedar and a locally harvested cedar burl. There is a propane stove for those chilly nights and an air conditioner for the steamy ones. There is small refrigerator, toaster, soapstone sink and hot plate for tea/coffee. We provide organic eggs, oil, spices, milk, butter, as well as the makings for coffee and tea.

Sleeping arrangement: There is a King Sleep Number bed on the second level. Within that same room there are two lofts with twin mattresses. The loft is accessed by a ladder and overlook the King bed. NOTE: The ladder is steep and ideal for children 7 and up. Weight Limit for loft space is 250 pounds. Ideally, the loft spaces are best suited for smaller adults or children as they resemble boat berths. Please take this into consideration one booking your stay.

Surrounded by a mature diversity of trees, the Shilo Farm neighborhood is private, lush and serene. We do have neighbors, but they are hidden through the trees. We are set back from the road, which provides a lovely sense of privacy.

Jonas Zev Amberger has been a full time yoga teacher since 1997 and received a degree in cultural anthropology from the University of New Hampshire in 1991. He later went on to study at the Kalidas Sanskrit University in Nagpur, India, where he received a degree in Ayurvedic Medicine in 2004. He co-founded and directed YogaEast, a progressive school for Ashtanga yoga in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, from 2002 to 2006. He also founded and directed Yoga 5, a center for Ashtanga yoga and Ayurveda in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts from 2006 to 2008. Jonas says of his personal philosophy regarding yoga practice, “When I practice yoga, I move away from the external stimulation that tells me I should be this or do that. I reconnect with a true place inside myself that invites me to express myself authentically with confidence and clarity.” Amylyn has almost 20 years of experience as an Occupational Therapist, working with people of all ages and abilities, with her passion lies in connecting animals with humans and considers it the ultimate healing experience. She also holds a degree in Outdoor Education and has spent many years guiding youth and adult groups into the wilderness and facilitating ropes course adventures. She spends much of her time in the vegetable gardens, cultivating the herb gardens and continuing to grow their vision of a sustainable and self sufficient life-style. In the summer months she loves to explore the the salt marshes in her kayak, biking the winding sea roads and surrounding herself in the beauty of nature. Together Amylyn and Jonas love to bring people together in a creative and nurturing way. Their home has been a hub for monthly community fires and they have hosted a number of bands for midsummer celebrations. They envision growing Shilo Farm into a place where friends, family and strangers alike can gather and share in music, food, and meaningful conversation. Our vision is always growing and we hope you can come and visit and be a part of our creative process!!!!
