For our second stay at the 1896 House, we stayed in one of the "luxury suites" at the Barnside Inn. Our room was beautiful - sitting area, fireplace, king-size bed, Jacuzzi tub, all beautifully furnished and decorated. Breakfast and dinner were included in our package, and again we were not disappointed. The food in the pub is delicious! We love... More

We spent an overnight at the 1896 Barnside. It was a cold winter day. The rooms are clean and have everything in them you'd like for a warm cozy weekend. We were served an excellent breakfast as part of our package weekend deal. The food was great and it was a weekend we will remember. The staff are helpful and... More

My wife and I stayed here over Thanksgiving 2014 for three nights and had a wonderful time amidst a huge snowstorm which created a winter wonderland. Our room was a large suite with king bed, fireplace, comfortable couch, and great bathroom with huge Jacuzzi tub. It was a large room and gave us the space to spread out and relax,... More

We would gladly come again, room was a bit moldy smelling but overall everything was good. May come back in the summer to see what it's like. Everyone that worked there was pleasant and helpful. The restaurant was very good.

My husband and I stumbled upon the 1896 house via living social. We spent a lovely weekend here. Our room was clean and well kept. All the staff was helpful and polite. The owner was very visible and friendly the entire weekend, walking around the premises and checking in throughout dinner services. We discovered that the 1896 is actually under... More

I took my gf here for one night for her bday. We stayed in the Barnside suites (202). My only disappointment is that we could only stay one night. The suite was immaculate! Not one spot of dust. They pull out all the luxuries for you such as fireplace, canopy bed, dimmer switches, bathrobes and slippers,Jacuzzi tub with candle, bath... More

We stayed for one weekend night at the end of October in the Barnside Luxury Inn's Empire Suite (206). The large room was spotless and comfortable but decorated with a furniture style (from the early to mid 1800s U.S., I think) that didn't especially appeal to us. Furnishings, however, included a nice king-size canopy bed. A gas fireplace took the... More

My husband and I spend a weekend here. We stayed in the suite 202, and we really enjoyed it. Our room was enormous, and we especially enjoyed the breakfasts made by Dolores! The people at the check in desk were helpful when we asked about hiking trails. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay!
