    Perfect in every way

    Our wedding at Barrows House was the best weekend of our lives and everyone who works there made it so easy and seamless that we were able to just relax and enjoy every moment. Colleen was fantastic at organizing everything and she was so flexible - she made every vision and request come true for us. Our day was perfectly customized to us. The food was fantastic, our family still talks about it. Scott helped us create amazing signature cocktails too. We can鈥檛 recommend Barrows House enough!! Plus, they are dog friendly :)

    My husband and I married at The Barrows House this past September. I've actually been putting off writing this review because I have had trouble finding the ability to describe how incredible our whole experience was. From the moment we started planning until the very second we left The Barrows House the Sunday after our wedding they were absolutely incredible. Colleen was an essential piece to our wedding planning and was the one that in the end made our vision come to life, even better than I had originally imagined (might I add)! We had our rehearsal dinner there as well and the whole wedding party along with some friends and family stayed all weekend. Every single minute was executed perfectly and without either myself or my husband having to life a finger. The staff was so amazing and always made sure to check on us to see if we had enough to eat (which as the Bride and Groom is so important), enough to drink, or just needed anything at all. Steven and Lauren, Colleen, and the rest of The Barrows House staff as well as The Dorset Inn staff went above and beyond in making our weekend everything we dreamt of. They are exceptional and should truly be recognized as such. I think everyone dreams of the perfect wedding weekend and that does not always happen, however in our case it did and we could not have picked a better place to start our lives and share our experience with our friends and family. The Barrows House is THE ABSOLUTE BEST!

    Love Troy and Nicole Sargent

The Barrows House & The Dorset Inn, are spectacular choices for your luxury destination wedding. 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.
