THE FAN HOUSE
Guests of The Fan House in Barnard, Vermont, experience concierge-style service in a world-class setting. Resident host
Sara Widness comes to inn keeping after a career in international public relations that led her to, among others, Rio de Janeiro, Myanmar (Burma),
Australia's Gold Coast and Botswana. Her clients, including many in Europe, schooled her in the art of delivering the finest in service and
accommodation which she now brings to Barnard, a region second to none in natural beauty.
A place with soul is bound to have a lot of history surrounding it.
Were those bricks discovered in the attic really
used as shields against Indian arrows way back in 1840?
What about the gardens that were said to be the
showplace of Barnard? (We’re working on bringing those back, by the way.)
Vermont's first female lawyer lived here.
A Vermont artist, Wm. B. Hoyt, lived here. (Today he commands five figures for his paintings,
some of which fell out of the barn that was razed a few years ago. Those paintings now hang in The Fan House.)
The Fan House is also said to be a replica of a dwelling that once graced the property of nearby (a mile up the road) Twin Farms
where author Sinclair Lewis and journalist Dorothy Thompson lived.
So, as with anything that's become an antique, The Fan House is about lore and legend.
