The Barn Retreat is a unique experience to stay in a completely renovated self contained apartment within a historic barn.
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.
We currently have three spaces available: The Barn Retreat, The Farm House Suite and the Skylight Suite. All have private bathrooms and share the kitchen and all common spaces (ie the Dining Room and Living Room). The description as follows is specifically for the BARN RETREAT:
The Barn Retreat is a unique opportunity to stay in a completely renovated self contained apartment (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 wood stove as well as a Rinnai Heater for those chilly nights and an air conditioner for the steamy ones. There is small refrigerator, a soapstone sink and hot plate for tea/coffee.
Sleeping arrangement: There is a King Sleep Number bed on the second level. Within that same room are two lofts with twin beds. The lofts are 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 200 pounds.
You also have access to the main kitchen and the community "Green Room" and Dining Room.
Zugang für Gäste
Enjoy the serenity of the landscape while you sip on your morning coffee or tea. We invite our guests to join us in morning animal chores of collecting eggs and feeding the goats. Our fire pit is a wonderful evening activity after a day at the beach or enjoying the sites of Portsmouth.
Interaktion mit Gästen
We can interact as much or as little as you desire. We love to meet new folks and will be happy to give you advice on the area....but if it's privacy you crave...than it is yours! Just let us know! We will be minimally in the kitchen to restock the shelves for your self serve breakfast and to access the fridge.

NOTE: The ladder is steep and the lofts are high. They are ideal for children 7 and up. Weight Limit for loft space is 200 pounds. Also be aware these are cozy loft bunks which may not be suitable for adults over 6 feet or who dislike small places.
ADDITIONAL HOLISTIC AMENITIES:
YOGA: Schedule a private Yoga class with Jonas Zev.
ADVENTURE: We can also provide guided hikes and kayaking excursions based in availability.
Feel free to spend time with one of our many furry creatures. We currently have a Great Pyrenees pup (Her name is SHASTA) who is in training as a Livestock Guardian Dog, three adopted cats, 5 Nigerian Dwarf Goats and 40 Chickens. We are a no-kill homestead and use only the eggs and milk from our flock and herd. We do ask that you enter the paddock areas only when we are home for safety reasons.
RENT THE WHOLE PROPERTY! And have exclusive use of all the common spaces. We have enough beds to sleep 11 folks. Please make a special inquiry so we can adjust the pricing accordingly. Cost: $500.00/night
NO SMOKING PLEASE: We are a non smoking property and ask that you do not smoke in the house or on the grounds.
NO PETS PLEASE. We wish we could host your pets as well, but unfortunately our 130# Livestock Guardian dog Shasta is the protector for our goats and chickens and gets uncomfortable with other animals on property.
We have a two night minimum from May through October.

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!!!!
