    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!

    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.

    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.

    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!!

    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.

    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!
