Both Woodlands Grill and Rice House offer unique views of the natural landscape that makes Barnsley Resort so charming. Woodlands Grill overlooks tees one and 10 of the Jim Fazio-designed golf course, and the fairways stretch into a mountain vista of the foothills surrounding the Forbes Travel Guide recommended hotel. The best way to enjoy your surroundings is from the veranda at the rear of the grill, which has floor-to-ceiling screens that hardly appear to be there at all. Rice House, on the other side of the village from Woodlands Grill, boasts a long meadow view of rolling greens adjacent to the ruins. One half of the restaurant is the sun-soaked porch room with brick floors, where two walls of white-paned windows include doors that open to a small herb garden overlooking the meadow.
Woodlands Grill offers grand, sweeping views of our award-winning golf course through banks of windows and our screened veranda. During warm-weather months, Rice House’s many windows allow for a stunning meadow view during extended daylight hours. Its sun porch overlooks the large trees and flowering shrubs that define the gentle knoll where the Barnsley family built its grand Italianate-style mansion. It also offers views of a small herb garden and sloping meadow planted with Godfrey Barnsley’s own row of Osage-orange trees, commonly called bois d’arc or horse-apple trees.
