Took my wife on a little surprise weekend getaway! Cathy was very accommodating and welcomed us. Paul is a great guy to visit with, just over all a truly nice time. Lit a fire by the river, jumped into the jacuzzi at night, great breakfast in the morning! Awesome place.

Wonderful retreat from rapid pace work environment. Close to multiple points of interest, festivals nearby, historical sites, parks, and nature. The view of the river was beautiful and breakfast was gourmet. Everything - yet private.

We stayed at the Barnard House B&B on our way home from our son's house in Michigan. It is about half way between our house and his. We often look down from the I-80 bridge over the Allegheny River and see the little town of Emlenton. This time we decided to stay and look around some more. The town itself...

This was our second stay at the Barnard House. Again we found it peaceful, comfortable, and inviting. The owners, Cathy and Paul are friendly and helpful. The food was great! We like the location close to the Alleghany Bike trail. We brought friends on this trip, and all enjoyed their stay as well. We recommend this B/B!
