An ‘Unlikely’ Place to Stay on the North Shore
Briar Barn Inn has recently been recognized by the Boston Globe in their Sunday travel section! We’re so happy to put ‘unlikely’ places like Rowley on the map! Rowley is in a historic, scenic region that’s perfectly positioned among some of our favorite North Shore destinations.
“First impressions can be deceiving. From its Main Street entrance, the inn looks like a humble B&B — in fact, this building once housed the Country Garden Inn. ‘People are shocked when they come in, thinking we’re just that first building,’ (now used for administration), says McKillop. Move down the driveway, though, and the new, 30-room property comes into view. You’ll pass a spa (to open later this summer), a pool-in-progress, the silo-shaped inn, and a courtyard bordered by greenery. A separate building houses the Grove restaurant, plus an outdoor terrace for summer dining and a fire pit patio.” (full article)
