My extended family has stayed here several times over the past few years when we visit my dad, who lives in Dorset. The Barrows House has large rooms, beautiful grounds, and has always been wonderful. Until this trip. 1) the blue jay's way - I would not advertise that as having a kitchenette bc there is no sink in the... More

This was our third visit; the first in the Summer, and it won't be the last. The Inn is managed by a real pro, Richard. He runs a first class operation highlighted by the many truly friendly staff, including the maintenance folks. There all types of accommodations available, so take your time and choose what seems right for you. There... 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

Our stay was incredible from top to bottom, the room was clean and lovely, the service was top notch and the overall feel of The Barrows House is wonderful. The breakfast was also delicious!! We planned to bring our new baby and they accommodated us with a room in the quietest part of the hotel, so thoughtful!

The Barrows House is so good! The service is awesome. I have been there now a couple of times from Rochester, NY and I have to say that it's one of my favorite places. It has a unique marble backdrop to the bar which gives it a very upscale feel even though it's a quaint town. The food is delish!... More

I love the restaurant at Barrows House. I ordered soft shell crab and it was DELISH! The service was fabulous there. They have a great outdoor area with heaters for a chilly night. One of the nights there, there was a beautiful wedding. So beautiful! I highly recommend the desserts too. OMG!

We were there for a wedding, and the even was handled perfectly. The grounds were beautiful and the reception was outside but under cover. There were heaters that took off the chill later in the evening, which allowed people to stay out longer than they would otherwise. The staff was great, as well. Our room was comfortable and we really... More

The Barrows House was a great place to stay. While it was only for 1 night, the room in the Blue Jay Way cottage was wonderful. Lovely, comfortable bedroom and a great common area that would be fantastic in fireplace season! So comfortable and charming. Staff couldn't have been nicer.
