What a wonderful stay. So lucky to find accommodations at the last moment for family obligations. This time of the year I was wondering where to stay and how to travel from Missouri. Had the house to myself and family spent the evening chatting over memories. Will definitely come back in warmer weather to enjoy the outdoors. Hopefully in October... More

My husband and I have stayed here three times, so far, while visiting his family. Each time has been a wonderful experience! The house is absolutely beautiful, the history amazing, and the breakfast delicious! Paul and Cathy are such welcoming hosts, and great story tellers, always ready to share the history of the house, and the area in general. My... More

My lady and I stayed here in mid November. We were impressed with the decor, (antiques. historical memorabilia and some artsy repurposed appointments). Our highlight was meeting and visiting with Paul and Cathy (who have a very interesting history of their own) while breakfast was being prepared and served. Breakfast was superb, and even in November, included a couple items... More

Quiet and slightly off the beaten path, Barnard Bed and Breakfast reflects the charm of it keepers: relaxed, artful, down to earth. It sports some beautiful vistas from alongside the Allegheny. Don't hesitate to book a stay.

Sometimes when we meet our guest a magicial connection takes place. Time and space bring us together in our home along the river and through conversation we find.... we have a lot in common. We grow in many ways by this process that in simple terms we call making friends. We are lucky to have people come into our lives... More

We stayed at the Barnard House in mid-September, drawn by the nearby picturesque Allegheny River Trail. The weather was unseasonably cool with rain in the forecast, so we almost cancelled our reservations. We are so glad we didn't! The inn was so cozy and well-decorated, and the innkeepers (Paul & Cathy Kentzel) so accommodating. Breakfast was made to suit our... More

We visited the Barnard House this past week. Everything was very clean and neat. The bedding was very comfortable. And our hosts, Cathy and Paul, were absolutely terrific. Cathy and Paul are very knowledgeable about a great many things - particularly history and architecture - and more than happy to share their insights. I particularly enjoyed sitting on the front...

On a business trip I stayed one evening and was the only guest that evening, Really enjoyed the hot tub and appreciated the well maintained house. The location over looking the river make it even more desirable. The price is very reasonable and highly recommend this bed and breakfast. I do plan on returning next summer with the family.

We just spent a wonderful weekend biking on the Allegheny and Armstrong trails near Emlenton, PA. The trails made for great riding. The real plus for us on this trip was the comfort and hospitality of our hosts, Cathy and Paul, co-owners of the Barnard House B&B. Their home was clean, comfortable and beautiful. It also offered a wonderful view... More

On a trip to explore western PA we booked one night at the Barnard House. But, when we got there we could tell it was going to be one of those serendipitously lovely experiences so we extended by another night and spent a whole day just relaxing on the porch and in the front yard right next to the river....
