We stayed at Barrow House in October 2010 and had a wonderful time. Ms. Shirley and Chris are wonderful hosts and made our stay comfortable. We stayed in the Empire Suite in the Printer's Cottage, across the street from Barrow House. We found it clean, roomy and comfortable. The suite has a living room with 2 recliners, a LCD TV and DVD player. There are lots of movies available for viewing. The bedroom is spacious with antique Eastlake furniture and a daybed. The bathroom is large with a clawfoot tub/shower combo. The cottage has a shared sunroom, kitchen and veranda. All of which make the stay more cozy and relaxing. Ms. Shirley is a wealth of knowledge about the St. Francisville area. She supplies maps and recommendations for dining in the area. She gave us helpful tips about the Angola Prison rodeo which we attended on Sunday. Breakfast was delicious each morning and entertaining with great conversation.
We had never stayed at a B&B before and were a little apprehensive. But we were quite pleased with our stay at Barrow House and will recommend it to our friends.
