Dave’s Milk Barn Cabin In High Falls, New York


I love when something old gets a new life, and that’s especially true of this milk barn, complete with a vaulted ceiling, that’s gotten a new life as an Airbnb.

What was once an insulated cooler for milk on the farm in the 1940s got a new life when Master Carpenter David Raponi renovated it and created a quirky home for himself. He lived there for seven years.

Now the barn has become a vacation rental on what is still a working farm. The surrounding landscapes are gorgeous, making this a lovely spot for a peaceful getaway.

    Lovely cozy, but I wouldn’t trust that ladder

    I love this one. The biggest problem with this is going to be when it’s time to leave. I don’t think I could.
