The black point inn is an elegant, charming hotel overlooking the ocean. A visit to this beautiful old resort hotel is like going back in time.....beautiful lawn and gardens, portico, carpeted stairway, interior dark paneling, soft rugs, friendly staff, blazing fire (even on a 85 degree day) and an attractive air conditioned dining room. We opted for a table outdoors... More

We had a wonderful time staying at Black Point Inn. The Inn is a throwback to superb customer service. Everyone was pleasant and truly customer oriented. The Inn is older, but has all the modern touches. It is situated on a peninsula, so surrounded by wonderful water views. There are beautiful gardens throughout, as well as gorgeous flower arrangements within... More

My wife and I wanted a different sort of getaway to northeast coast and we found a jewel in the BlackPoint Inn (BPI). Upon arrival we were greeted and pleasantly escorted to room.

This venerable old Inn has been spruced up with window boxes and beautiful gardens to complement the sensational sunset views from the wrap-around porch. Unfortunately, the meal was not equal to the rest of the experience. Though it was a weeknight, the place was hopping, and while the staff was gracious, they were overworked. The food we waited over an... More
