    If you like old properties with character, this inn is for you. Comfortable bed, room air conditioner, and an easy walk to the Dorset Playhouse. An excellent breakfast included. We will definitely stay here again next time we go to The Playhouse.

    We have an outdoor pool for use in the summer months at our sister Inn, Barrows House. We do not have a hot tub, but we do have deluxe fireplace suites with jacuzzi air tubs.
