My wife and I picked Barristers en route to Vermont. It is a beautiful old building that has been meticulously restored. The stained glass is all original as is the wood work. It is bright and airy and the floors have that comforting creaking sound that gives it a lot of character.
We stayed in the Yellow Rose room. It was fantastic! The bed was super comfortable and loaded with pillows. I had a great nights sleep! The coolest part was the yellow tiled bathroom. It was awesome and I wish I would have taken a picture to post.
Breakfast was unbelievable! I'm not talking your standard scrambled eggs in a chaffing dish. This was 3 courses of gourmet deliciousness! It seems that Ken's no stranger in the kitchen. They were he and Dianne's original creations. Great breakfast and good company. What a treat.
All in all this place is a great B and B in and of it self. The real reasons to stay here are Dianne and Ken. They are the reason the the Barristers is what it is! Other people have stated this and now it's my turn. As soon as we were greeted by Dianne we knew we were in for a real treat. She really does make you feel like family and she loves owning the Barristers and meeting new people. That's the reason it's so cool.
As we were leaving I yelled "bye mom" and Dianne came out of the kitchen to give my wife and I a huge hug and a safe farewell....... I felt like I was leaving home. Thank you Dianne and Ken!
