“Perfect in every way!”
Reviewed May 27, 2014 via mobile

Stayed here for our daughter's graduation from Middlebury College. Daphne and Peter were just the right amount of friendly. They seemed genuinely happy to have us at their beautiful home.on arrival we were offered homemade cookies,coffee,iced tea,etc. The gardens surrounding the house are lovely and manicured.the house is so clean,decorated beautifully and comfortably. We stayed in the sunrise/sunset 2 room suite since our son accompanied us. Both rooms were gracious in size,very light with many windows,comfortable with a chair ,night tables and lamps. There was ample closet space with lingerie hangers. The bathroom was nicely sized,excellent shower and shelves for our personal items. We all slept great ,great mattresses and high quality sheets. (The towels were also plush and seemed new).
BREAKFAST ...was among the best we have ever had a B&B !!! Fresh local ingredients and served on time when we requested it. First morning we started with a fruit and yogurt parfait, fresh rhubarb & blueberry coffee cake, homemade jam and butter, out of the garden asparagus frittata and bacon.Next day also started with juice,yogurt parfait, rhubarb and cranberry muffins, oatmeal pancakes with homemade turkey bacon sausage.
This is a little bit far for Middlebury but it is less $ ,the drive is beautiful and the lake is a 5 minute walk. Perfect place for biking!
We will be back .

Barsen House is just delightful, Daphne & Peter are extremely welcoming & gracious hosts. The inn is beautifully appointed & the woodworking that Peter has done throughout is lovely. The grounds & gardens are very pretty & Lake Champlain is an easy walk from the property. Terrific rooms & sumptuous breakfasts. This was our second visit & we can't wait to return.

We stayed at the Barsen House this past summer and it was just perfect! Daphne and Pete were wonderful hosts and the house and grounds were beautiful. The house is located very close to the water and convenient to other area attractions. There is plenty of space at the property to enjoy down time as well. The rooms were spacious, beds comfortable and everything including the bathrooms were all very very clean. I would highly recommend the Barsen House Inn to anyone traveling to VT!

This B&B is extra special. The gardens are unbelievable including a vegetable garden that grew much of what we ate for breakfast each morning. The property is secluded, quiet and full of nature. I saw Blue Jays, Cardinals and Orioles while on the property. The rooms are decorated in a traditional manner and the beds are comfortable. The house and rooms are clean and well kept. We enjoyed the company of the innkeepers and they were gracious and provided excellent service and knowledge of fun things to do around the area as well as places to eat.

The lake provides lots to activities and the sunsets behind the NY mountains were the best part. We loved staying here and will be back soon!

This place was within minutes of the Basin Harbor Club (where a wedding we were going to) and I am so glad that we did not end up staying there and stayed here instead. The owners Daphne and Peter were not only hospitable, but warm caring and cooked up a perfect breakfast.

The accommodations and the grounds were immaculate. A total sense of serenity encompassed the Barsen House Inn and it was truly a pleasure to be in the gardens or the luxurious beds.

Definitely will be revisiting!

Room Tip: Sunrise room has a heart shaped bed.

Barsen House B& B is first class. The home is beautiful, the grounds are landscaped incredibly. The rooms and baths were spotless, with hand crafted furniture and original art throughout the home. Daphne and Peter was so gracious and friendly. Breakfast was farm- to -table. Rates were reasonable as well.
The lake is nearby, and the area is quiet and wooded. Great for stargazing by the fire pit.
Go there!!!!! We will return for sure.

The innkeepers are very gracious, the home and grounds are beautiful, beds are comfortable, and the breakfast is sensational with fresh eggs, herbs, and more from Daphne’s incredible garden. Great bicycling right from the Inn and Peter recommended just the right routes for our ability. Lake Champlain was quiet and lovely for kayaking. One of the most relaxing vacations spots we have experienced.
