Almost every year for the past 21 years, we have been enjoying unforgettable spring weekends at the Blackberry River Inn. It is set in a most beautiful corner of CT and is a very lovely, historical inn maintained with great respect for its authenticity. We have a favorite room, but often consider larger family gatherings using the other rooms in... More

This would have been my second time at this inn, I made the reservation last week, got a confirmation number, and got a call tonite saying "Oops- we have to cancel your reservation because we have a wedding booked for that whole weekend and your room is no longer your room". totally disappointing and unacceptable! Stay elsewhere in Norfolk if... More

We were able to sneak away for a little St. Valentines Weekend fun. We were warmly greeted by our host Erik who was the most efficient host. The Inn was absolutely immaculate and there was tea and little cupcakes for snacks. This was our second time here and we look forward to return in the future.

Stayed here one night in late August. We have stayed in many B&Bs but this was one of our least favorite. Our room was small even by B&B standards. It was clean, but the furniture was nothing special. It was old, not quaint. The public rooms were very nice. The breakfast was ok, just ok, nothing more. If I were... More

My wife and I stayed here during a friend's wedding over in Canaan. Eric stayed up to check us in late and was very friendly. We were in the main house in Suite 3 I think. Bed was Queen and Bathroom was large (by Brooklyn standards) and clean. Saturday morning, I woke up and swam laps in the pool which... More

Every spring we stay at the Blackberry River Inn where the beautiful, historic inn is set on a rolling lawn bejeweled by large trees and mature flowering bushes. The interior of the inn is elegant and tastefully decorated with an eye to the maximization of its period beauty. The breakfasts are always deliciously made and graciously served. The manager and...

We rented rooms in the Carriage House and also hosted a luncheon at the Inn (for friends and family) in memory of my father. We were at the Inn very early in their season so there were no other guests staying there while we were there. Therefore, we were given a lot of attention by the staff (Kate, in particular)... More

We traveled to Western CT to see the foliage and Kent Falls State Park. We saw this inn on "LitchfieldHills.com", part of the Western CT visitor's bureau. It was perfect for our needs. We booked a Queen room in the carriage house but were upgraded to a king room in the main house due to a very quiet part of... More

We stayed here for a Saturday night in the fall and were extremely impressed. The staff is exceedingly friendly. The building is over 300 years old, extremely well kept and full of beautiful antiques. This place is a gem. I'd give it 5 stars, but the breakfast was a little underwhelming for the price of the B&B.

We stayed at this place because I had to be at Lime Rock Park at 7:30 AM and it was too far to drive in the morning from my home. Didn't really care where we stayed so I chose Blackberry River Inn. It looked OK on their site. When we arrived we were shocked to see how beautiful the place... More
