“Our Amazing Wedding at The Blackthorne!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2008

Picturesque. We knew we had a winner as soon as we pulled into the drive and saw the covered gazebo on the properties small pond (complete with swans!). I will attach pictures so you can see everything, but from start to finish--we loved Blackthorne. All 9 of our guests booked room and each was really impresses. We, ourselves, booked the cabin Tipperary, which was a pleasant and rustic retreat. Relaxing in our own cabin steps from the pond where we were married was a great experience all in itself!

Comfy beds, incredible dinners, excellent brunch. I couldn't ask for much more--but I did get more--the prices were amazing!

Thanks to Sharon for all her help planning our special day :)

Stayed April 2008

The Blackthorne Inn (formerly 1763 Inn) is under the managment of an Irish family who are trying to make this Inn an above average "B&B". They should be applauded for their efforts, but there is still room for improvement. First, when trying to book a room for an anniversary, two emails were sent to the Inn as shown on their website (one to the Reservationist, one to the Property Owner) Both emails went unanswered. Not a good first impression, however, the allure of the facility based on its website, prompted me to call and make a reservation by phone which was done w/out problem.

We stayed in the "Stables" area in the "Kerry" room. Rustic is a good description of the room. There were areas that could have been a bit more updated, but overall the room was average. There was, however, a large stone fireplace and ample wood for a fire. Dinner was just above average, service a bit slow and not as polished. A cozy, new "pub" is in the main house and it draws local residents and inn guests. Breakfast (included in the $190/nt. cost of the room) was choice of omlet or eggs/bacon/hash browns. Not the standard fare for a B&B breakfast. PROS: Historic bldg., Scenic View, Pub, Friendly Owners, Flat Screen TV in room, CONS: Drafty Room, Sheets not cleaned (hairs), No Iron

  • Liked — Historic Building and the newly renovated cozy pub on site.
  • Disliked — Room quality/amenities for the price paid.
