My husband and I and our dogs have been going to Dorset VT for the last 20 years. Our younger son was an acting intern at the Dorset Theater Festival in 1993. We have stayed at he Barrows House and the Dorset Inn many times. Now that the Dorset Inn has acquired The Barrows House our options for dog friendly accommodations has expanded. Ten family member including five children just returned from a wonderful stay at the Barrows House which included delicious dinners at both Inns and breakfasts at the Dorset Inn. The grandchildren especially enjoyed the lemonade and cookies after returning from a swim at the Marble Quarry and before a dip in the BH pool. They also enjoyed dining on the new terrace, sitting by the fire pit and running on lawns surrounding the terrace. Parents and children shared the Raven's Loft while the grandparents enjoyed the Wren's Nest next door. Our favorite lunch in Manchester was at Al Ducci's, and Cissy's Kitchen in Middleton Springs. We also enjoyed our visit to Merck Forest and picking and eating blueberries and raspberries on their working farm, which has spectacular views of the mountains. Sat. night my granddaughter and I saw a excellent performance of "Barefoot in the Park" at the Dorset Playhouse. Looking forward to our next visit.
