We have stayed at many bed and breakfasts but this could be the best! The room was great. The people were wonderful. The food was amazing. They have recently redone the restaurant and outdoor space and did a great job. I am running out of adjectives to say just how great this b&b is. Quiet, tranquil and relaxing. Just what... More

Our children gave us an overnight stay with dinner and breakfast for our 40th anniversary. For weeks my husband kept saying going out to dinner with our kids would be perfect. We checked in,took a rest, and went down to the bar for a cocktail before dinner. All of a sudden I heard a familiar voice turned around and we... More

Our family stayed in the Blue Way House which was perfect! The king size bed, twin bed and pullout sofa were great! The staff was very helpful and friendly. We had breakfast at the Dorset Inn just a short walk up the street which was amazing. The cranberry pecan pancakes were so yummy. The bacon was cooked perfectly. The chef... More

You must stay at thte Barrows House if you are in the Manchester/Dorset area. We stayed in the Blue Jay room #3. The room was beautifully decorated and the bed was comfortable. There was a common living area with a small fridge, microwave, television, wood burning fireplace, and plenty of sitting. I do wish they had cards or board games... More

My family and I have stayed before and always have a wonderful time. Cozy, quaint and comfortable. Close to Manchester (great shopping!) and great ski mountains. Make sure to get the popcorn and the pork shanks!

Although we visit theMancester/Dorset area several times a year, we've always passed the Barrow's House thinking that it was too expensive, so when a Living Social promo offered a special, we bit. And boy are we glad we did. The Inn offers rooms in several buildings, in addition to the main Inn building. We stayed in a suite in the... More

Ah, Vermont in winter. The place to BE. Except that you can't BE there because they are too cheap to salt their roads so people like me can GET there to pay 300$+ a night for a hotel. I feel like this needs to be mentioned because if you're going to be in the tourism industry you must accommodate said... More

Vermont in winter IS the place to be and we are glad that you chose to spend your weekend at Barrows House. Along with winter comes winter weather and travel can sometimes be hazardous until the storm is finished and the roads are cleared completely. Service providers and repair crews can also be delayed to weather and holiday weekend travelers.... More

Returned to Barrows House after 13 years to find new owners and many improvements, but the same warm welcome, cozy accommodations, delicious food and incredible service we'd remembered. We plan to make it a yearly visit!

We decided to splurge on an anniversary getaway, and stayed in the Cardinal's Retreat, room 1. The room couldn't have been more perfect, it felt like our own little lodge, and we used the fireplace liberally. It's spacious, well-appointed, well-equipped and the bed was comfortable. We felt it was well-worth the splurge. We could hear our neighbors above us walking... More

So we booked 2 nights at Barrows House with a groupon that was valid starting on New Year's Day evening. We originally had booked a room that was in the Inn and when we checked in we were told that we got moved but that it was an upgraded room. Well that sounded great so we took the room on... More

We are glad that you chose Barrows House for your recent getaway and of course we are disappointed that your stay with us was not as relaxing as it should have been. We meant well by offering a complimentary upgrade on your room reservation...but we obviously fell short on providing a quiet atmosphere for your stay during the holiday week.... More
