Feedback: Wedding/Event // June 2013

"Our daughter's wedding was the 4th and last wedding that her stepdad and I have planned in the past 13 years. (3 of the weddings have taken place in the past 5 years.) Without a doubt, we would not hesitate to recommend the Dorset Inn / Barrows House for one of life's most important milestones. Worth every penny spent: beds comfortable; food outstanding; abundant ambience, with a backdrop of green, mountains, and fresh country air. However, we would encourage those who are seeking a higher level of service, commitment, and trust -- to choose the Dorset Inn / Barrows House with their experienced, hardworking, dedicated staff. One simply cannot put a price on those values. We look forward to staying with you again. Thank you" - N R Stratfod, CT
