The Barrett-Gate House is located at the corner of Main and North Streets in historic New Harmony, Indiana. It’s adjacent to The Red Geranium Restaurant entrance, across from the Roofless Church. It consists of two relocated and conjoined structures. The log portion of the guest house is part of an original Harmonist log cabin built in the early 1800s. The framed section was added when the house was moved to its current location. The Barrett-Gate House has lodged many artists through the Robert Lee Blaffer Foundation’s creative partnerships. Guests are encouraged to enjoy and respect the unique nature of this historic structure and its surroundings. 


Cancellation Policy: We will issue a full refund up to two weeks before reservation check-in date and a 50% refund up to 1 week before reservation check-in date. In the case of a no-show, we will charge your credit card the full amount of your stay. No exceptions.

The Barrett-Gate House is used primarily by our Creative Partnerships for small group stays. However, when not occupied, the Foundation offers it to qualified groups or individuals to rent for Sanctuary Overnights. Whether you need only 1 bedroom or all 4, we will work with you to see if we can accommodate your needs.
