This barn in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains is now a family vacation home 

Before it was a rustic vacation rental in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, it was originally a working barn in the midwest. Built prior to the American Civil War, this barn is more than 150 years old with soaring 30-foot ceilings, gorgeous hardwood floors and breathtaking views of the Rockies. And while the space has been artfully and lovingly modernized — see: the gourmet kitchen, spacious bedrooms and luxurious bathrooms — the house still harkens back to its former life. Many of the architectural details like the wooden posts and beams are original, and newer additions like windows and glass sliding doors perfectly suit the space. Even the contemporary furnishings blend in seamlessly into the 1860s-era barn. This beauty is available to rent on Airbnb.
