    We had both our wedding welcome dinner and celebration lunch at Barrows House, and also had many of our guests stay at Barrows House and the sister property the Dorset Inn over our wedding weekend. Colleen and the staff at both properties were UNBELIEVABLE and we could not have been happier that we chose to have our events there and that we and our guests stayed there over the weekend. There are many, many reasons why they were so awesome, but here are a few:
    -The inns themselves are ADORABLE – they are nicely renovated but still have a ton of charm, and are reasonably priced for the area and for what you get.
    -Colleen, who manages all events at the properties, did an awesome job and was so flexible and helpful throughout. They were so relaxed and really helped to make sure our vision came through. When it threatened to rain, they set us up so that we’d be fine rain or shine, which we really appreciated.
    -they really let us make the place “our own” and our guests were playing lawn games, relaxing on the property, and exploring the area. There is something about these two inns that over the course of the weekend they make you feel like part of the family, and you can really tell that their main goal is to make sure you and your guests just have a great time.
    Throughout the weekend and during our events, they were amazing and they made sure we and our guests felt truly at home. We cannot encourage you enough to book them for a wedding, a welcome dinner, or an event, or even just as a place for you or your guests to stay. They will not disappoint.
    -Emma & Jeff

    My husband and I celebrated our wedding at Barrows House in July 2016. We used the Dorset Inn for our rehearsal dinner and hosted all of our guests for welcome cocktails the night before our wedding throughout the first floor of the Dorset Inn. We couldn't have wished for a better venue. Barrows House is a truly unique property which allowed us to have a large portion of our guests right next door (which we looked high and low for!)... and is stunning inside and out. The Dorset Inn, just a couple blocks away, is the epitome of New England charm and a lovely addition to all that Barrows House has to offer. Colleen was a pleasure to work with throughout the process and anything we wanted to do was met with welcomed accommodation. All of our closest friends and family stayed throughout the two properties for our wedding weekend and everyone was complementary of the beautiful rooms and excellent service. Colleen had relationships with most of our vendors and they seamlessly worked together on the day of our wedding, creating a smooth process for all involved. We truly felt Colleen and Barrows House had our back, filling in any gaps we missed or overlooked throughout the process and at our wedding (including getting us a great deal on an upgraded sailcloth tent and even paying our cocktail hour jazz band when we mistakenly forgot to prior to the ceremony). We loved our experience at Barrows House and our guests continue to have nothing but glowing reviews a year later. Thank you to all those involved-you made our day and made the planning process a breeze.

The Barrows house is beautifully newly renovated, on a unique property, lending itself to accommodate large wedding parties and their guests. Something couples struggle to find, and are very pleasantly surprised by stumbling upon this advantageous feature at the Barrows House property. A must see!! The main building + restaurant are stunning inside and out. With regards to hosting your wedding at the Barrows House, reflections I hear over and over from couples are that from the moment of conception your wedding is tailored specifically to your personal style and needs. This is largely due to the first class attention you receive by the properties manager, Colleen Clifton-Palmer. Her knowledge, vision and exemplary customer service, and providing a seamless experience are all reasons why your wedding at the Barrows House will be one to fondly remember. Brides and their families also fawn over the Dorset Inn, and it being the picture of quintessential New England charm.....complimenting the Barrows House with its own unique presence. Making both The Barrows House + The Dorset Inn a truly fabulous experience for your Vermont wedding.
