3D Renderings

We’ll be busy with our construction, landscaping and interior design until our opening in Fall of 2018. Until then you can learn more about the buildings on our property with our location overview and by looking through our architectural renderings of our Barn, Inn, and Courtyard.

Location Overview

You’ll find Briar Barn Inn on 101 Main Street right across from the town common. The first building you will see is the historic Millet House, home to our offices. Just beyond the offices, is a gallery, spa, and pool. Our 30-room inn is centrally located with a landscaped courtyard and patios leading toward our restaurant (a post and beam barn) in the back of our property.

Across from a green space on Main Street in Rowley, and surrounded by protected land on the northern, eastern and southern sides Briar Barn Inn – our property promises a convenient location with tranquil surroundings.


Our Barn

Keeping with the rural history in the town of Rowley a post and beam barn was the perfect shape for our 100-seat restaurant. With three separate bar locations inside the building, we will be able to host events, guests at our inn, and local visitors in our dining areas. In the warmer months, our terrace will have outdoor seating.

Our restaurant will offer a seasonal menu, developed by our award-winning chef at Willowdale Estate, focusing on farm-fresh ingredients, inspired flavors, and regional classics with a twist. Open year-round and offering breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily with brunch on the weekends – we are excited to earn a reputation as a local favorite!


Barn Interior

When entering through our main entrance you will see the open concept dining room, with hardwood floors, exposed beams, and an open and light-filled room! Our new post and beam barn will feature rustic farm tables with plenty of seating for up to 100 guests, two double ring black industrial chandeliers, and a full bar at the far end of the room.

Just to the right of the main dining area, there is a smaller dining area with our second bar for larger reservations. During private events, this also serves as the main dining room for restaurant guests. Just beyond the bar area, you will find our restrooms, a third bar, and another small dining or cocktail area that can be opened as needed.


Barn Interior #2

Here’s a rendering of our barn interior from the back of the restaurant looking towards the main entrance. At the far end of the room you’ll see barn doors that can slide over the entrance when we are hosting a private event. Our airy and open room will feature exposed beams, farm tables, and two double ring black industrial chandeliers.

Just behind this vantage point, you’ll find our full bar for the main dining area, and the hall towards our restrooms. To the left of this main room is a smaller restaurant area which will remain open for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner during our private events. The dining room can be arranged with a variety of different table for reservations of all sizes!


Barn Ceremony

Our post and beam Barn provides the most intimate backdrop for your wedding. Your guests will gather inside to enjoy the rustic character and comfort of our indoor ceremony location as you say your vows.


The Inn

Our 30-Room inn is in a U-shape with a landscaped courtyard visible from each wing. The lobby and front desk are located in the front of the building in a bright and airy space reminiscent of a silo in a contrasting light color. After check-in, guests will have easy access to the spa, courtyard, and restaurant through our landscaped garden paths.

From cozy gathering spaces to our uniquely appointed guest rooms, Briar Bar Inn features an inspiring blend of rustic décor and thoughtful amenities to make your stay effortlessly comfortable. Each room includes a gas fireplace, hideaway entertainment cabinet with a 46” flat screen television, and a cozy seating area.


Courtyard

Our courtyard is conveniently located by the enclosed walls of our U-shaped Inn with a fire pit located in the area between the courtyard entrance, and the barn terrace. Surrounded by beautiful landscaping, the connecting paths make it easy and accessible to get to the pergola, dining patio, terrace, the Barn, and of course, the Inn.

We envision the courtyard as the perfect place to relax after spa treatment, a place to soak in the sun with a favorite book, to make s’mores around the firepit, or to get fresh air after a dinner in the barn. Like Willowdale Estate, we plan on making the most of our garden areas with trees, bushes and flower plantings that compliment the natural beauty of New England.
