The barn was built in 1924 by Arthur and Minnie Rogers, originally from Ireland. They bought the then 13 acres of waterfront property and started a dairy farm. It sold several times and became a milking barn for Manes Farm. In 1962 an architect and his wife from New Jersey started conversion from barn to house. The property was sold to a local family who completed the conversion. The current owner bought the property in the fall of 2003 and undertook the major renovations that the barn-house needed. As an avid gardener and artist she moved over 100 roses from her former home and went about restoring the existing gardens, adding her own vision to the unique home and gardens creating the Dungeness Barnhouse Bed & Breakfast.
