We had a great time at Barrows House. It's a traditional New England Inn that has been updated to all modern amenities. Clean and well put together. We have been there 3 times already and always look forward returning to it.

Spent two quiet and cozy days in the Cardinal Suite before Christmas with my husband. It was perfect! The room was an upgrade which was truly appreciated! The fireplace and open space made it so relaxing! We had dinner both nights right at the bar in the Inn which was great! The food was just what we wanted...and it was...

We discovered Dorset by accident while dining in Manchester, Vt. in the fall. Someone told us to go and see the Marble House and ended up driving into the village of Dorset complete with a country store and a bakery called Dorset Rising. When we stayed in early December, the village was covered with just enough snow to add to...

Dorset truly is an experience....and we are so glad that you found us! Please be sure to spread the word about the marble sidewalks, white picket fences, Dorset Playhouse and of course; The Dorset Inn and Barrows House. Some of the best personalities are found in small town America...so happy you felt welcomed!!!

Booked our room through a deal, without any plans for what to do during our weekend stay. We ended up going to Hildene in the next town over, and visiting local shops and restaurants all day. Just an A+ time. Staff at the attached gastropub was great too.

We stayed here while attending a wedding in the area. My wife selected this place, partly because they were dog friendly and indeed they were. I think our dog enjoyed her stay as much as we did.
