Couldn't fault our stay in Three Borders Barn. This is a large well laid out property in an amazingly scenic location. The addition of a bar and the use of the indoor Tennis court both added to the uniqueness of our stay. I really hope to come back and enjoy this property again sometime in the not too distant future.
