Located just 7 miles from downtown Auburn and Auburn University in the sleepy historic town of Loachapoka, this house is ideal for families coming to tour the University, sporting events, graduation, or for a simple country getaway. The MilkBarn Guesthouse was originally built in 1940 as a cow milking barn. Fully renovated in 2017 as a guesthouse, it has a full kitchen with all new appliances, heart pine countertops, gorgeous bathroom with a clawfoot tub, sleeping loft, and cozy living space. Updated on the inside with an old Alabama feel. Fully fenced-in yard with locking gate. Plenty of parking. Ask about our pet policy! Sleeps 6, open floor plan, private, peaceful.

Very quite and relaxing. The property was very clean.
This cozy cottage was the best. The location was so convenient for access to Auburn University.
Awesome place! Highly recommend!
We enjoyed our stay at this quaint house! Our sons especially loved it with their own loft area to sleep and play upstairs. It was so nice to have a fenced in yard for our dog. The house had everything we needed, even contact solution! The only thing that wasn’t great is the train coming through during the night, which is pretty loud.
The converted milk barn was wonderful. Our family of 5 had plenty of room and enjoyed our time there, especially our dog with the fenced in yard. Located just outside of Auburn, it was very easy to get there or to Lake Martin for hiking and lake time. Very thoughtfully furnished and decorated. FYI there is no shower, but the claw foot tub with handheld shower did the trick. If you’re looking for a relaxing stay, this is it.
The Milk Barn is the perfect place if you're looking for a quiet well furnished stay that is out in the country but just minutes from Auburn. We loved the place and will definitely stay here if we ever come back.
We were looking for a little getaway with our two children. The boys loved the loft area and the ability to play in the grassy area. It was wonderful to be able to bring our dog with us and have a fenced in area for her. The Wii was a fun, unexpected addition!
My husband and I booked this stay for a weekend kid-free getaway and it was perfect. The location is close enough to Auburn for food and shopping, but far enough away that it was quiet and peaceful! The rental was as even more beautiful than the pictures and the owner is super sweet (especially calling to let me know we forgot something!) We can't wait to come back and bring our kids for another stay!
What an unexpected joyful experience! Our family discovered the re-envisioned milk barn while passing through on spring break. Spectacular attention to design details. Creative and thoughtful. We will return for sure.
It was perfect for my dusty, myself and my daughter and out 4 legged kids. We wanted to be on the West side of auburn and out in the country, so this property was perfect. We will definitely be back!
Property was as described. Owner goes out of their way to accommodate our needs. Although right next door, we never saw them. When I needed something, I would text and get an immediate response. Thank you for a lovely stay and we will be back!
The Old Milk Barn was a great stay on our way to FL. It was surprisingly very cozy, super clean, and easy check in. So much character. It was like a hidden gem in a simple country setting. Wayles Terry is a fantastic host. Fast communication and provided all amenities listed plus some. I enjoyed a relaxing bath in the claw tub - it was a great cure for traveling stiffness. Our dogs loved the fenced in yard and it made for a nice morning coffee on the porch while they hung out off leash. Highly Recommend! Hope to stay again the next time we are passing through Auburn.
This farmhouse was the perfect getaway for my family. The decor was super cute and the house was well-stocked and clean. My daughter did not want to leave the loft!
Property was just as listed. Very quiet area. Enjoyed our stay.
We loved the milk barn and can’t wait to go back. The proximity to the university and restaurants is convenient! The decor and style created such a relaxing environment for my two preteens and I. Thanks again for renting to us!!
We had a great time in the milk barn! The layout is well-thought out to provide true comfort and the decorating is tasteful and highly pleasing. We thoroughly enjoyed the extra-large bathroom and extra-large kitchen. We and our two dogs felt at home immediately. Auburn and Auburn University are a short drive, with plenty of back roads that allow you to avoid traffic. The owners live right next door, in case you need anything (we didn't). We will definitely seek another reservation if we need overnights in Auburn again. Thank you for your beautifully-furnished milk barn!
The Milk Barn was perfect from the first communication until we sadly had to leave this perfect treasure. The Milk Barn is a simple cinder block on the outside, hence the Milk Barn. Once you walk in the doors it is pure relaxation in a beautiful rustic setting with all the charm of updated and comfy furniture. My 20 year olds loved the loft for sleeping. It was perfect for our family. Close enough to Auburn to easily be at restaurants within 10 minutes. Thank you for the hospitality.
Our accommodations and communication concerning our stay were fabulous. We loved the location and we LOVED the house/barn. Everything was exactly as described and perfect for us. We stayed to watch our son receive his doctorate degree. I wish we had found and used this accommodation during our stays while he was a student.
My daughter and I stayed here for a long weekend. She was horse showing at a farm nearby. It was so nice to come back and relax every day in this cozy guest house. The owner was very easy to get in touch with and responded quickly to any questions I had. The house was fully equipped with everything we needed and then some. We had a great stay.
Only 7 minutes from downtown the Milk Barn is perfect! I couldn’t have asked for a better place to unwind after a busy work day. I’ll definitely be back!
The Milk Barn was a great weekend getaway. The kitchen is spacious and we were able to prepare dinner for all 6 of us easily. The personality of the place is so nice and set a comfortable tone for catching up with family and friends. Thank you so much for a hospitable stay. We had a great time.
We love staying at the Milk Barn! It is a hidden gem that we enjoy every time we make our annual trip from NC to the Gulf Coast. Extremely clean and very relaxing.
This property over exceeded my expectations! What they’ve done with the place, it’s absolutely gorgeous. I love all the amenities they offer, all the little touches is what makes this place so special! My pups loved the fenced in yard to roam in. We hope to stay again in the future! :)
We had a great stay in the Milk Barn and have already booked it again. Ten minutes from campus. Clean, nicely appointed and peaceful place to unwind. My only complaint would be the internet/tv. I liked getting away from the bustle but at the same time would be nice to have a little tv to help relax at the end of the day and/or keep up with work related items. Can’t wait to be back!!
We enjoyed our stay at the Milk Barn! What a cool experience! This home was fully furnished and stocked. We didn’t need a thing! Thank you so much for all of the homey touches from the comfy linens to the Wii!
We enjoyed our stay at the property. We were very impressed with the make over of the property.
Adorable, relaxing and perfect for our overnight stay on our trip to the Gulf Coast.
Clean property, short distance from the University. Very quaint, quiet area just outside of town.
Perfect for a getaway as it was quiet, cozy & relaxing and still close enough to town!
Had a lovely stay at this quaint and well appointed guest house. Cozy, close to Auburn, comfortable, fun and unique! Thanks!
Great weekend!! Our girls’ trip was so much fun. Wayles is a fabulous host. Charming accommodations! Everything we needed and more. We WILL be back.
The Milk Barn is adorable! Our stay was quiet and relaxing. My daughter loved the loft. Check-in was a breeze. Check-out was late which was terrific! We really enjoyed our stay.
I LOVE this property! Amazing place! Unique, immaculate so comfortable! Perfect quiet place to relax and enjoy a little bit of country!!! Thank you for having us!
This is the second time we have stayed at the Milk Barn and love the atmosphere and the ease of checking in and out. Not far from downtown Auburn. Love the look of the Milk Barn. Only thing I would like to see is having regular cable TV or Satellite hooked up. See you again soon.
The outside of the Milk Barn keeps its secret until you open the door. Then you are greeted with a lovely and warm interior, a marvelous kitchen, comfortable beds, a great wi-fi set up, and a bathtub with claw feet! A real retreat feeling - welcome and comforting. Plus our dog was welcome there and he enjoyed the fenced yard. Enjoyed this wonderful place and when we return to Auburn, we certainly hope to be able to stay there again.
This was a beautiful place to stay. It was extremely comfortable and in a peaceful setting. The kitchen was perfect for cooking many meals. I definitely plan to return.
Had a great time in The Milk Barn. Very rustic looking, a great change to the ordinary hotel stay. We will be staying again, have already reserved our weekend. Thank you
We needed a stopover on our way to Dauphin Island and this worked perfectly. Convenient to Auburn, pet friendly, and support cute. Very easy to work with and had everything we needed.
We were so lucky/blessed to book The Milk House for our 2 daughters’ graduation weekend from Auburn University. We couldn’t ask for a more peaceful country spot for friends and family to gather for celebrating! Wayles was easy and in good communication the whole time for questions. This place is an obvious former farm, so pretty. When Wayles re-purposed the Milk Barn, she did an outstanding job with furnishings and colors, etc. We all were very comfy. Cooking is my passion, so I always bring my knives and whatever I might need, but the kitchen is well-stocked ( I didn’t check the knives since I had mine) and had some supplies you might not usually see—-like (don’t always count on it) farm fresh eggs! Thx, Wayles! Also, incredible amount of counter and cupboard space! There not a dishwasher it who cares when you can enjoy all of your surroundings—pet-friendly w/ nice big yard, and you are definitely in the country—just what we needed for our graduation weekend! We’ll be back for sure. Kudos to Wayles!
The Milk Barn was cute and cozy and was exactly what we needed. The owner was a pleasure to work with.
We came from Indiana for a weekend with our daughter. It was a delightful place to stay. Warm and inviting and you can bring your dog! Thank you Wayles!
