“Wonderful Getaway!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

What a relaxing experience from start to finish! Everyone was welcoming and went out of their way to make us feel at home -- from the cozy fire in the living room to the flat screen tv in our room, we had everything we could have wanted! Comfortable beds, lovely people, and fantastic Vermont scenery -- we can't wait to come back in the summer and enjoy the pool and beautiful tennis courts! What a great new find in Dorset, Vermont -- I would recommend it to friends and family alike! The grounds were beautiful and would be perfect for a family reunion or large party...going to start planning!!

Just returned from another visit to Vermont and decided to stay at The Barrows House, which is definitely a new favorite! This was our second visit and first overnight stay since it's been under new ownership and it was another phenominal experience. We stayed in The Bird's Nest, which is one of their stand-alone cottages. The ambiance was perfection! Jacuzzi tub, fireplace, flat screen TV, bathrobes and the bed was oh so comfortable!
Dinner was as amazing as the last time and the staff made us feel right at home. A true gem for Dorset, Vermont!

Room Tip: Bird's Nest but several other rooms are under renovations so I'm sure they'll all be gre...
