1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
Was Closed for the Season
I can't really review this facility as it was closed for the season. I shouldn't have even been able to book our stay. I didn't know they were closed until I arrived at their door. When I was finally able to get in touch with someone, they claimed they had just found out I had booked the room the day prior, that they had no contact info for me, and that it was an expired card that I used to book with. Of course, that's all nonsense. I do have to give her props for finding us a room up the road at the Locust Tree B&B. Heidi at the Locust Tree was awesome, and I can certainly recommend her B&B. I know we'll be back. As for the Blackberry River Inn, who knows.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Run down place.
Old, uncomfortable bed, broken TVs (room and common areas) despite DVDs and VHS movies available.

a step back in history
A truly impressive house in which yoare immediatelyy transported back in time. The beautifully panelled library walls, the antique furniture, the crystal chandellier and elegant staircase all give thi inn a charm and character that only comes with age. Mark, the custodian/manager, on the oter hand is young. His warm welcome and genuine desire to make your stay one to remember was equally as impressive as te house. They are perfetly matched. This colonial house offers comfortable tastefully decorated and furnished rooms. The magnificient hot breakfast is served and presented in style. The suites at the front of the house are adorable - a must.

Très bon séjour à la hauteur de nos attentes
Parce que nous avions souhaité passer au moins une nuit à la campagne dans un hotel typique et ancien, le black berry était vraiment l'hotel à ne pas manquer. Idéalement situé près des cascades sur notre route du retour; en plaine campagne du connecticut. Après avoir parcouru des kilomêtres de ville en ville, nous voulions un peu de verdure et surtout un hotel qui fasse un peu comme un bed and breakfast ou comme une chambre chez l'habitant. Nous sommes très bien accueillis par Claus et une amie de Claus, dans cette demeure qui date de 1763. Meublée avec beaucoup de goût et de charme de l'époque, l'hotel est resté intact et vraiment d'époque ! les meubles anciens, la musique.... Claus est vraiment quelqu'un de gentil et d'exceptionnel ! il nous a invité à rester dans le salon le soir à écouter de la musique (qu'il joue très bien "guitare et armonica"), on a passé une soirée inoubliable et c'est ce que l'on souhaitait !). Si vous voulez de l'authentique, il faut aller au black berry ! le petit dej aussi était super ! servit dans une pièce magnifique style verriere sur de grandes tables rondes dressées avec beaucoup de goût, et enfin des vrais couverts !! ce qui change de tous les autres hotels ! MERCI BEAUCOUP encore et encore à CLAUS et son amie.
