The Barnard House Bed and Breakfast, owned and operated by Cathy and Paul Kenzel, is full of charm and comfort. Seven of us visited for the weekend and felt as if we belonged there. The house itself is a gem, but Cathy and Paul have made it into something unique, full of Barnard history and Victorian appointments. It is a... More

I guess my review is a bit jaded since I'm a Barnard descendant. This is my second stay at The Barnard House, and my first with the current owners, Cathy and Paul. My grandfather's childhood home looks wonderful and was a wonderful site for the Barnard Family weekend. Cathy and Paul couldn't have been more accommodating, and the extra time... More

My husband and I recently stayed at this delightful B&B. Cathy and Paul were very gracious hosts as we called late for an impromptu trip. They explained the history of the home and they have photos of the original family which was very interesting. The town of Emlenton is small, but close to the interstate and has a great biking...

Emlenton lies at the southern end of the great Allegheny Valley rails-to-trails network, and I stayed here for two nights while I rode to Titusville and back. I used the Barnard House to bookend my trip - staying here for nights 1 and 4 and in Franklin, some 30 miles upriver, for nights 2 and 3. Barnard House looks out... More

Had a lovely time at Kathy and Paul's place, the Barnard B & B. We stayed over the Fourth Of July which didn't seem to be a busy weekend in town, (Emlenton Days were the following weekend) but just what we needed in a quick getaway. The house has a great front porch to relax on with a view of... More

The Barnard B&B is an excellent place for rest and relaxation as well as a great location for biking, kayaking and canoeing. The room we stayed in was great, the food was great and the people who own this B&B were wonderful.

My wife and I rode the bike trail from Oil City to Emlenton. Great trail and paved for 99% of the way. Great B&B with excellent accommodations and a delicious breakfast. Located in a small historic community. Wonderful host - highly recommended!

We were passing through and booked the night before. I left our room choice up to Cathy, and we loved our river view room with private rear-racing balcony! Breakfast was wonderful and plentiful, at a time of our choosing. We would have preferred the option of taking trays up to our balcony, but once we saw how much was served,... More

Our stay was great awesome food wonderful company, very clean B&B.Looking forward to going back! Paul and Cathy have put their heart and soul into renovating the old home. Cathy's knowledge of gardening adds to the charm of the area around the B&B.
