We made reservations on their special deal for one night including dinner at 6:30. Done ! Our plans changed so we called to move our dinner reservation to 5:00. We were then told they had no dinner reservation since they don’t serve dinner on Sunday evening. Their special Romantic night and dinner for two included Sunday. The Asst Manager Kaitlin practically called my partner a liar stating she never book the reservation for dinner then hung up the phone. This place doesn’t deserve one star but I couldn’t give it 0 stars so there it is.

Wonderful, wonderful! We chose to do a little stay-cation in our home state of VT and opted for a stay at Barrows House in Dorset VT. I can't speak highly enough of this gem of a property. Everything about our experience was just what we were looking for, relaxing, rejuvenating and so pleasant. Accommodations: We stayed in one of the Cardinal Retreat suites, equipped with a wood-burning fireplace, large bathroom with a walk-in shower, extremely comfortable bed and super spacious! Customer Service: A+, every interaction we had with staff from the check-in to dinner and breakfast, we were always greeted with a pleasant demanor and excellent service Property: Quintessential VT charm with nice added touches for amenities like a comforting outdoor fire-pit, game table with life-size checkers, outdoor tent for dining etc. If you're looking for a romantic escape to a place where you can experience all that VT has to offer - this is the place for you!

Get on your mask and head to the Barrows House in Dorset VT. They have a great drink selection, I enjoyed a lunch from Maine brewing and my sandwich was the best. I tried the kluker and everyone was jealous. I paid for the sweet potato fries and wish there were more or they were bigger, you can never get enough fries. The weather was awesome so it was a nice treat to eat outside on Sunday night.

We scouted Barrows House for our wedding 6 years ago, married there 5 years ago & return at least once a year! We love the customer service & location. Bonus- Dorset Green is an easy morning walk & we always get our coffee at the general store. We also love the included breakfast at Dorset Inn.It would be nice for a few updates as we’ve noticed some wear & tear- we’ve literally stayed in a different spot each time. But we feel like it’s a second home away from home. If you go- call & ask for help with booking a room. They have great customer service and are more than happy to help!

We loved staying at the Barrows house . The friendly staff upgraded our room when we arrived and could not be more welcoming. A fireplace and cheese tray awaited us in the main lobby. The room and were clean, comfortable with a contemporary feel. We had a delicious dinner at the Inn and went down the road to The Dorset Inn for Breakfast which was included in our rate. We enjoyed seeing their other property. We thought both Inns were charming and will return.
