Two nights in this lovely old inn that has been updated simply but with taste. Good restaurant. No elevator so will need to arty luggage upstairs if in main house. There are several cottages as part of the accommodations so ask if you need to be on a ground floor. About six miles from Manchester. We were there in middle... More

I'm from San Francisco and I'm used to eating the finest fuds from around the world. I DID NOT expect to find such a fine establishment in the middle of nowhere in rural Vermont. The food was delicious and service was great. Will eat here again.

I am a local from Manchester, Vermont, that needed a nice place for a family reunion dinner. Since we've always had a pleasant experience at The Barrows House we decided to have our dinner there, and it was defiantly not a mistake! They served a wonderful plate of scallops, that were cooked to perfection. Not to mention the calamari, and... More

The people working this inn understand hospitality and are good at it! The old Inn rooms are small but comfortable (maybe could use some additional electrical outlets for the modern traveler but,...). It's "charming" in a non saccharine-ish way. Did not eat there but the breakfasts at the Dorset Inn (included in your during the week stay) were good.

We love the Barrows Inn. We stayed in the Cardinals Retreat (room 2) which is a separate building from the main inn. The main inn has the restaurant which is very popular and lively. We felt that the room we choose would be much quieter and we were right especially since there was no one else staying in the building.... More

We stayed at the Barrow's House for two nights in mid July to attend a friend's wedding. To begin with, Dorset is an ideal location. The Inn is on Route 30 which is a beautiful road but still easily accessible to Manchester. It is classic Vermont with fields, wild flowers, stonewalls, and blue mountains. Dorset itself is a charming small... More

We had a great stay and the staff was top notch!! Love having the pool and tennis courts on the property. Restaurant was great as was the food but I'd consider pricing it more family friendly. We would've eaten there more if it weren't for the cost. Having a full breakfast included was perfect and food was great! My son... More
