“The perfect country oasis!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

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.

The rooms were cute and the hosts incredibly gracious. My favorite part was the immaculate grounds and beautiful, wild garden, with the very entertaining chickens. Breakfast was delicious, especially with the fresh eggs. Got great dinner and activity recommendations as well. A great getaway spot!

Daphne and Peter welcomed us into their beautiful home as if we were long family friends. Everything from the grounds, to the food, to the company was absolutely wonderful and I can't thank them enough for their warm hospitality.
