Was pleasantly surprised with the Blackberry River Inn. First of all, the innkeeper, TW, was very kind and hospitable. He greeted us in the parking lot and brought us straight to our room. He has a german shepherd that follows him around- very well behaved, so not to worry. The building itself is from the mid-1700's so is old and... More

My wife and I took a two-night getaway here recently. T.W. (and Tabu) are wonderful hosts. The accommodations are very comfortable and the breakfast delicious. The lovely pool is a great spot to relax. Highly recommend a stay here. We will be back.

Thanks so much for the great review and taking the time to do the review in the first place! Very much appreciated! Tabu also thanks you for those nice words. Breakfast in a building built in 1763 should be delicious:-) It doesn't hurt we use real local maple syrup, locally farmed and made jams and preserves, range-free certified organic eggs,... More

My wife and I were visiting the area and chose this inn due to its proximity to our destination. The room was clean, the inn was charming and the innkeeper, TW, was friendly, personable and attentive. In addition his breakfast was excellent. The waffles were unbelievable. We are going back just to go back.

So glad you enjoyed staying with us and found us to be a great place! Thank you too for taking the time to review us. Appreciate those nice words about our breakfasts!

Recently stayed for an overnight while seeing a show at Infinity Hall- just 2 miles from town and very convenient! The Blackberry is an open, friendly B&B w/ large, clean rooms. the breakfasts are modest but well-presented. They very much want to please! Highly recommended if you're looking in the area.

This is a beautiful and spacious inn just near Norfolk that boasts comfortable rooms and a home-cooked breakfast in a lovely sunny dining room overlooking a farm. Carriage house separate from main house, but cozy nonetheless.

A very well cared for, maintained and managed New England Inn. Everything we encountered was immaculately placed and clean. The breakfast menu offered various juices, fruit cups, eggs, omlettes, pancakes, waffles, yogurt, hot cereal, toast, coffee prepared and served with an obvious attempt to please and it did.
