Always quirky. Heck, the main building is older than the United States. But breakfast is always fresh and tasty, the staff is super-helpful, and honestly, there are only 2 or 3 other places nearly this nice within 20 miles of Winsted.

This inn isn’t just for summer—we spent Christmas week at the inn and it was a perfect, quiet, and relaxing getaway from the city! Everyone who works at the inn is truly incredible and kind and breakfast was great each day, with accommodating options for vegans. We were even allowed to bring our cats along due to their pet-friendly section of rooms, which made the holiday perfect. Couldn’t have had a better experience—recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful getaway.

We had stayed at the inn twice before approximately 21 years ago and thought it would be romantic and fun to stay there again. While the room was lovely and the breakfast was terrific, unfortunately our stay was ruined when we first arrived at the inn. We were immediately presented with a bill for our nights stay which was substantially higher then what we booked plus no consideration was given to the fact I had previously purchased a gift certificate for the room as a gift for my wife last Christmas. When I confirmed my reservation two months before I was told my room would cost $150, which is what I purchased the gift certificate for. The employees at the front desk appeared confused and called for their manager who rudely questioned the authenticity of the gift certificate (I received it from them) and lectured us on why I should pay substantially more for the room. After I threatened to leave and sue them the "manager" blamed the confusion on a previous employee, charged me room tax and gave us our room. I had to ask several times for the owners name and number which he reluctantly provided. Later when we settled in for the evening trying to forget our horrible check in experience I received a call from someone asking me for my side of the story. In fairness she did apologize and offered me a free night, but her call couldn't have waited at least until the next day? P. S. we never did receive a free night certificate. This experience ruined our planned romantic night and as nice as the Inn was, the manager who questioned the validity of their own gift certificate knew nothing about hospitality or customer service. Unfortunately we were extremely disappointed that this retreat we had such fond memories of had deteriorated to the point where an arrogant and rude "manager" could ruin our stay before we could even get into our room. Sadly, I doubt we would ever consider staying at the Blackberry Inn again.

Wonderfully warm hospitality, and a simple yet elegant charm are the hallmarks of this lovely Inn nestled just east of Cannan Ct, in the beautiful Berkshire foothills. Our hosts Joseph, Diane and Lukas could not have been more caring to out every need and the breakfast my wife and I enjoyed was lovingly presented complimenting the bright and cheerful views of the mountains out just beyond the dining room windows and across a field of late autumn corn stubble. The rooms were spotless with very comfortable beds, featuring beautiful bathrooms and an overall sense of tranquility throughout the establishments many cozy sitting areas. Stay with Joseph and family at the Blackberry River Inn for an evening or a weekend and enjoy some old fashioned New England comforts, you won’t be disappointed...😊

I unfortunately spent just one night in this lovely, unique Inn, but would have loved to stay more: the building is an historical structure, keeping all the charm of the old times. The owner is friendly, welcoming, a tasty breakfast is served in a wonderful dining room overlooking the beautiful garden. The room was comfortable and had everything we need.
