Barrow House Inn is a perfect choice for a weekend away from it all and a step back in time. We were in need of some R&R and Barrow House Inn fit the bill perfectly. There are actually two separate homes, we stayed in the Barrow House in the Rose Room. This spacious room had a lovely tester bed with a chandelier, period furniture, and some beautiful antique Persian rugs. The bedding was comfortable, even if it was a double. The house reeks of charm and the hosts Chris and Shirley are most helpful. Their recommendations for eating and touring were most helpful The standard breakfast is a continental breakfast with a fresh fruit plate with a nice glaze, fruit juice, coffee/tea and some accompanying bicuits and breads. For an additional $5 one has a choice of 3 egg dishes, which was delicious and a bargain. The hosts make you feel very at home, which has also been their home fpr 27 years, and provide drinks and sundries as needed. The front porch was a favorite spot to spend some relaxing time, especially with wine or coffee. The home is in the center of the historic residential area and the starting point for some great walks among some wonderful old residences.
