At the Barron Brook Inn, we have started many eco-intiatives, after a guest with cyistic fibrosis stayed with us. Our "green" rooms feature American Clay which is a renewable resource that cleanses the air and repels dust and dirt. We also used BioShield no VOC paints in our "green" rooms. Our rooms feature cotton and bamboo for bedding, towels, and window treatments. Many of our decorative items are upcycled. We are continuing to renovate our property using environmentally friendly products, as they are very well received. Our Inn makes every effort to recycle all materials through use of the local transfer station to composting. Our Inn is designated as a showcase in New Hampshire for consumers to visit when interested in the American Clay product line. We also hope to do more seminars to make people more aware of ecofriendly products and their benefits. We are located on 31 acres, with a small garden and brook for canoeing. Our plans are to build a pavillion using a recycled structure and/or wood from our property, purchasing a wind turbine, installing eco-friendly landscaping, and utilizing solar power.
