Reviewed September 18, 2012

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Blackinton Manor this past weekend. Laura and Paul took very good care of us. They put a lot of work into every detail of your stay - from the delicious hot breakfast, to afternoon wine & cheese, always making sure we had everything we needed. We caught up on much needed R&R. We would definitely return again.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Carriage Room, which is in a private part of the house. We liked having our own qui...

It is a very beautiful, luxury house with very comfortable and specious rooms, nice and helpful owners and great breakfasts.

As for the house itself it's one of the most beautiful B&B I stayed at. Tastefully decorated, full of antiques (which we love) and still very modern for the facilities and comfortable. The rooms and the bathrooms are very specious. The garden is beautiful, there is a pool, which we didn't try as for us it was a "little bit":) cold. Breakfasts were delicious: home made banana bread, zucchini bread etc.

The only thing we found a little bit sad is the place where it is. There are some villages around with some museums, small (very small shops) and of course Mount Greylock but for us after visiting New York and Maine it seemed to be quite empty around and not lively at all. For those who want really quite times close to the forests, or hiking it is really a beautiful place but I guess you really have to live it very quite.

Its a beautiful Victorian b&b. Very romantic with option to add roses and champagne for special occasions. Easy access to hiking trails and close to both williamstown and north adams attractions. Huge delicious breakfast and coffee available all day. The only thing that makes us reluctant to return is all of the rigid rules and the way the inn keepers are always lurking about, almost too attentive. An example, sign in bathrooms requesting women remove eye makeup before using a towel to wipe their face. It's ashame because it's so nice just hard to relax, felt like we might get scolded.

Relative to our guests stay in 2010, we strive to provide an environment of privacy and solitude with exceptional service. We respect our guests time away and only respond when requested. As noted in previous reviews, our guests enjoy the tranquil environment we pride ourselves in providing. Blackinton Manor has adopted a 'green policy' which is posted in all guest bathrooms requesting that our guests participate in our resource savings program, if they wish, by using towels more than once during their stay. No other signage is present. We are very pleased that these guests enjoyed the Romance Special in addition to the other ammenties provided during their stay.

We were celebrating my son's graduation and I was looking for a location that could satisfy all the interests of my slightly extended family - art, music, outdoors, dining - and still give us plenty of time to just be together, a rare treat for us. The hotel is close to Mount Greylock and some beautiful trails and cascades, close to Mass MoCa, and retaurants and other attractions. We took over three rooms in the inn; and they were are beautiful and comfortable, The breakfast is incredible, and there is even wine and cheese in the afternoon if you happen to be back there.

I am so sad that we were unable to stay and fully enjoy this place! The house is beautiful, clean and quite spacious! Laura and Paul are very nice and friendly and will make sure you are well fed and taken care of too! Even our friends who were traveling with us were welcome to come along when we received the initial tour of the house, even though they weren't staying with us.

Our trip was for a short overnight stay and I only wish I could have stayed a bit longer to enjoy my room and the beautiful claw-foot tub. Make sure you plan on staying more than just one night so you can REALLY enjoy Blackinton Manor!

Room Tip: The Queen Anne room was perfect for a romantic couple's stay!

Our room was beautiful, clean, spacious, and comfortable -- we stayed in the room with the jacuzzi tub, which was really nice. Laura and Paul were wonderful -- very friendly, attentive, and know when to give you space. I was surprised at all of the goodies they offered us -- I knew about the brandy and chocolates because of their website, but the cookies and muffins were really yummy and a nice touch. Our spinach and feta omelettes for breakfast were delicious. Overall, a great experience! Definitely recommend.
