Me and my partner spent one night at the White Barn Inn. It's a small roadside inn, not a farm house or an estate, and the premises are quite compact.
The property is lovingly furnished, there's a very nice living room, very homely and cosy. Small of course. Off season as we were, I did get the feeling we could be the only ones staying at the hotel. I don't think the property would cope well with being full. Anyway, with no other guests in sight, we felt quite comfortable.
The room was a bit too small, tastefully designed, and it did have a very large bathroom and enough closet space. A chilled bottle of champagne was waiting for us there, which is always a very nice touch. All members of staff were polite, friendly and effective.
The restaurant was fabulous! Set in an old barn, the dining room is very picturesque, well lit and comfortable. The service is of a very high standard, as is the food. I had the lobster roll, fresh and crunchy, the duck consommé with foie, warm and deeply flavored, and the lobster on fettucine, rich and delicious. To finish, the grand marnier souflee, just heavenly.
As a one night stop on our New England road trip, the White Barn Inn was exactly what we were looking for, and I would recommend it for that purpose. Mind you, we were off season and our rate included dinner, so the price was more than reasonable. I did however feel the accommodations, public areas, and gardens weren't spacious and varied enough to warrant a longer stay.
