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

My wife & I decided to stay at the Barrows House for our 9th year anniversary using a GroupOn Deal. We stay in VT every year and this was our first time at Barrows House. The first day was not very pleasant at all, but our stay was much better on days 2-4. Upon arrival we had booked via phone... More

We are happy that Barrows House was chosen for your 9th Anniversary! First impressions are important, and you had some concerns with your first visit. Please remember to always read the "fine print" in third party offers...."specific rooms requested are not guaranteed" in this particular Groupon offer. We are pleased that you enjoyed the rooms, breakfast, roaring fire and our... More

The Barrows House nestled in Dorset Vt is a fantastic gem. Great rustic rooms and awesome fireplace that begs you to sit in the comfy couches and warm yourself on a cold winters eve! The fireplace is not the only thing that provides WARMTH here. The professional staff highlight this classic inn and truly made our 2 visits here amazing.... More

I've been going to the Barrow's House for the past 15 yrs. It's great to see the place completely renovated from the rooms to the bar and restaurant. A great improvement and terrific staff. I highly recommend this jewel in the mountains of VT. A bit pricey but you get what you pay for.

I called 4 weeks out, b/c it was listed as pet friendly. I was surprised to have found an inn offering what they did to have availability. Graciously booked by Richard who immediately guided me thru the choices of properties based on my 7yr. Old twins, 2 young dogs, us and a lot of ski gear. Falcons Flight was the... More
