We are local and visit the Barrow's House often. Staff are always friendly and food is always enjoyable. Love the interesting specials, however the shrimp and scallop spring rolls are my go to favorite Ali g with the beet and goat cheese salad. You can't go wrong at this establishment!

My husband and I escaped to the Barrows House for 5 days xmas week. We enjoyed the solitude, lovely, spacious room and wonderful bathroom and bathtub and the food at both the Barrows House and the Dorset Inn. The room was very clean and after an initial issue with the fireplace the staff had it working the next morning. Everyone... More

Glad you enjoyed your stay at Barrows House! It was a true pleasure having you. It was a strange Holiday week in Vermont, with the lack of snow. Glad the weather, or lack there of, didn't bring you down! We are happy to report that we are now covered in snow! Hope to see you again soon. More

We had stayed at the sister property, the Dorset Inn in the past, and because there was no availability at the Dorset we were told that we would equally happy with the Barrows House. Unfortunately, this was not the case. The room was okay, but the bathroom was in serious need of undating. Tiny old sink, old bathtub and the... More

Thank you for sharing your feelings. As you mentioned, Barrows House is indeed the sister property to The Dorset Inn. When The Dorset Inn team took over operations at Barrows House in 2012, it was all hands on deck to revitalize and bring life back into the 1800s property. The rennovation process is still, and will forever be, ongoing. We... More

We stayed for four days in November in a suite at Barrows Inn. The rooms were disappointing i.e., tired with some awkward furniture arrangements like a desk with no chair which bumped into a refrigerator in an alcove. My biggest complaint was an outdoor staircase which, for anyone over 25 and encumbered by packages, I found dangerous. In snow and... More

We have our Main Inn, with 8 rooms, and then 19 other rooms scattered throughout our 7 surrounding cottages. We pride ourselves on having 27 rooms with a completely unique experience in every single one. With that being said, we only... More

We spent an overnight at the Barrows House and nearby Dorset Inn this past week-end. What a hidden gem this quaint luxury B & B Inn is in this quiet picturesque Vermont village. Our room was very well appointed and comfortable, and our meals were outstanding. The staff couldn't do enough to insure our comfort. Siting by the fireplace in... More

My wife and I received a warm welcome from the innkeeper Kate upon arrival. The room was nicely decorated with an upscale touch. Meal and drinks in the restaurant were very good and convenient. You can order pub fare or a well cooked steak. The very short drive for breakfast is worth it. We enjoyed specialty omelets and stuffed French... More

Bed and Breakfast offering first class comfort and hospitable attention to our needs. Everything about this lovely home is inviting. It was especially enjoyable to sit outside near the fire pit and enjoy cocktails. There breakfast also was outstanding served at nearby sister property.

Best described as a very upmarket motel, Barrows House occupies a number of buildings in the sleepy, quietly rich village of Dorset. The rooms are traditional but well equipped and within easy reach of the main building. One minor annoyance, breakfast was served at a neighbouring hotel about 400m down the road. On a very wet October morning this was... More
