We really enjoyed our stay here! Beautiful views of the lake. Our room was clean and comfortable, with a balcony overlooking the lake! The staff are all very friendly and helpful. So much within driving distance to do & see. We highly recommend the Black Swan!

I stayed 3 nights at the BSI with my furbaby. The property is very peaceful. Even with my dog, as well as others dogs, it was very quiet & clean. We never even heard another dog, just occasionally ran into them out walking. It’s close to everything but far enough away that you feel like you’re in peaceful solitude.

The Black Swan looks much cooler in pictures than it actually is, however, the staff is very nice and helpful, and the Indian restaurant had a great menu and the food was very good. The lodge itself is old, the decor looks dated and it is very worn around the edges, especially the decks on the lakeside. (But half the rooms look out on a parking lot/road, so if you choose to stay there, definitely book a room on the lakeside.) There is no elevator, so getting large bags up to second floor rooms is a real pain. There are laundry facilities and a workout room, and the location is good for Lenox, Lee and Stockbridge, all of which was helpful. There is no breakfast restaurant service, but there is a little break room with a lake view and they provided very good coffee, along with oatmeal, cereal, bread products, hard boiled eggs, yogurt and some fruit, which made for an efficient start to the day. But after seeing the place in person and comparing to other motels in the area, some more reasonably priced, we will not likely return.

We had a lovely stay at the Black Swan, returning to our home in the Berkshires after moving away. Beautiful lake view, and an easy drive to/from Lee, Lenox, and the Mass Pike, as well as Stockbridge and Great Barrington. Helpful staff, restaurant on site, and lots of amenities available. Parking can be difficult when there is a wedding party staying combined with the restaurant being busy, but didn’t pose any real problem. Room was clean and comfortable. Thanks to everyone at the Black Swan for a great weekend!
