In the early 1900s the rural town of Dorset attained popularity as a summer resort community. Guests traveled by train to Manchester, took a scenic carriage ride to Dorset and more than likely remained in Dorset the entire season.
These summer visitors were the initial guests of Theresa and Experience Barrows. Outdoor recreational activities were an important attraction to those early Barrows House guests, as they are today. For golfers, the Dorset Field Club offered an historic 9-hole course and was the site of the Barrows House championship played at summer's end.
In this spirit, our cottage called the Falcon's Flight combines guest accommodations with recreational activity; the lower portion of the building serves the nearby pool; the second floor provides a guest suite.
