My husband and I stayed at The Dorset Inn on our wedding night. We went to dinner at there other resort across the street, The Barrows House. I had been there a long time ago and it was good but I was amazed at the wonderful changes. There is a new patio, where we sat, that was gorgeous! The interior... More

Our stay at the Barrows House B & B was simply wonderful. The room was clean, warm, and inviting. It had all the pleasures of home. The staff was there if you need them to answer questions. Breakfasts were at their sister B & B, the Dorset Inn, just down the road. And believe me their breakfasts were quite filling... More

This was our 2nd trip to Dorset, first stay at the Barrows. It was wonderful! From the moment we arrived everyone was so friendly. We stayed in the Mockingbird Court house for 3 nights. Our room was Mockingbird #4. Very nice, spacious and clean. Loved the separate room with the fireplace. It was nice to curl up on the couch... More

We have been traveling to Vermont for the last several years and usually stay at the sister Inn, Dorset Inn (which is wonderful, as well!). I've been watching with interest since the new owners began the renovation of the Barrows House. It must have, indeed, been a labor of love as you can see it in even the smallest details.... More

I just returned from a long weekend in Vermont. If you haven't stayed at the newly renovated (2013, I believe), Barrows House then you are missing out on a treasure. It 's located in Dorset, Vermont. It has rooms at the Main House, but also has quaint cottages/renovated buildings on the grounds. We stayed in the Ravens Loft cottage which... More

I'm obsessed with this place! Can't wait to go back. It was quaint, CLEAN and the staff was extremely personable and helpful. And to top it off the dining experience is wonderful as well. They offer a complimentary full service breakfast, and there are lots of great hikes and festive things to do nearby.

The Barrows House, with it's newly transformed acres of cottages and rooms, is the ideal way to enjoy the tranquility and beauty of Vermont. A big surprise was the beautiful new restaurant; the food is fabulous, not to be missed. In warmer months you can get a table outside and enjoy a beverage at the firepit. As a previous diner...

We came here on our honeymoon and had a wonderful visit. We stayed in the Wrens Nest, a cute little cottage removed from the rest of the rooms. The bed was very comfortable and the whirlpool tub was nice (though we couldn't get the jets to work - not sure if that was just us...). We were there in the... More

Congratulations on your wedding! So glad you chose to honeymoon at Barrows House. Wrens Nest is the ideal retreat for that. Sorry the jets didn't operate for you. We checked them immediately, and all seems well. Serving breakfast at The Dorset Inn mid-week does give our Barrows House guests an opportunity to explore our sister inn. They each unique and...
