We enjoyed a wonderful weekend at the Inn. It's so charming and exquisite. TW was extremely accommodating to our late arrival and was an exceptional tour guide, telling us about restaurants and hikes. He also makes a delicious breakfast with a number of menu options. The area itself is beautiful and filled with local Berkshires character. Would highly recommend a...

The Blackberry River Inn was a beautiful place to stay. Because we were the only guests on a cold early March Monday night our host upgraded us to the main building. There was a TV in the room but it did not have regular networks. However, it was not a big issue for us. Our host was very helpful including...

So glad you enjoyed your stay with us!! Yes, having you in the main house (built in 1763) was rather nice. True, no satellite TV service right now but we do have complimentary Wi-Fi and the deluxe rooms and suites all have DVD players and flat screen TV's. We look forward to welcoming you back! Thank you very much! T.W.

Stayed 1 night to attend performance at Infinity Hall. It is located a couple miles outside town, so you can't walk (but we didn't from closer stays either since it is dark).

This place was so convenient to the venue we were visiting. The staff was wonderful. We had a few issues. The room we were in had a claw bath tub which is great if you are not short. I am so climbing in and out was a bit challenging. It was great having our own fireplace which we needed as...

Hello Suzanne, Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay with us. We do appreciate it! Sorry if you felt the heat was off, but I can assure you that in February, in the "ice box of CT' (Norfolk), the heat is never off in February. I must have set the thermostat too low, and...

We were looking for a relaxing mini one night vacay upstate and found Blackberry River Inn on Trip Advisor. Oh how glad we are to have found it!

Thank you both so much! So glad you had a great time and enjoyed the Cottage, breakfast--including our raised waffles with real (locally sourced) maple syrup. The Cottage is great for privacy and yet those windows across the front add so much natural light. Of course the wood burning fireplace is a plus during this season. Yes, we have a...

Historic diamond in the rough. The new innkeeper is doing a marvelous job! Warm and friendly atmosphere. Spacious rooms. The main house suites are the best. Bucolic setting. Great stopover if you are planning to go to Infinity Hall. Short drive to Norfolk, Lee, Salisbury, and Millerton. Be sure to check out the Beckly Furnace just up the road off...

My stay was just one evening but I was impressed and would not hesitate to stay again when in the area. It was the perfect spot to stay for an evening when I was in the area to catch a show at Infinity Hall. Comfortable and clean accommodations, friendly staff, and fantastic breakfast.
