Reviewed 27 January 2014

My girlfriend and I spent three wonderful night n days in this beautiful hotel.the recent reviews were very positiv and so is oursIt is obvious that the new management based on the very good work of the people working there has improved BSI.Ofcourse there are always little things that can be better but the so far improvement proves that there is nothing that can t be done. Guys thank you for the beautiful weekend.

Kara at the front desk was extremely helpful and welcoming. We loved her! Our room was very comfortable and cozy. We would also highly recommend the onsite resteraunt (great service and food)!

Dear Karissa,

We are very excited to hear that you had such a wonderful time during your visit with us here at the Black Swan Inn. Providing only the highest levels of customer service has been our top priority since we took over this property in April this past year. Kara is a valued member of our team here and it pleases me to hear how welcoming and accommodating she was throughout your visit. I am glad that the rest of your accommodations were too your liking, and that you were able to take advantage of the always excellent Bombay Restaurant on site.

The hotel is conveniently located close to Lee, MA on a beautiful lake (frozen when we were there). Super nice front desk person (Kara) who was just awesome checking us in, giving us several choices of types of rooms and locations and was more than happy to accommodate our request. She explained everything about the hotel; i.e.: where to park which was near the most convenient entrance to get to our room, the wifi code, the location of all amenities and then recommended with accuracy and experience the onsite restaurant (see review for Bombay). Just a great experience which seems to be getting to hard to find throughout the country.

I had planned my stay here to celebrate New Year's Eve with my boyfriend. We stayed from Mon Dec 30, 2013 through Jan 1, 2014. Our room was very comfortable and cozy. We had a lakeside view room with a beautiful view of the lake and I loved waking up to that every morning. Being from NYC, my boyfriend and I really enjoyed the nice cozy atmosphere of the Inn away from the hustle and bustle of the city. I highly recommend the Inn if you want to stay at a reasonable priced place that's very clean, cozy with a friendly staff. Kara was extremely helpful and catering to us on our stay, we thank her for that as well as the rest of the staff. We look forward to coming up there soon for a stay possibly in the Spring 2014.

Dear Lucy,

We here at the Black Swan Inn cannot thank you enough for your amazing review of our property. Reviews like yours really help our future guests make their lodging decisions when traveling to the Berkshires. Not only do they benefit anyone interested in traveling to the area, but they are very rewarding when seen by our staff. The staff here follows TripAdvisor very closely and sometimes they see these new reviews even before I do. So as you can imagine, seeing that you collectively, or you personally made a positive difference in one of our guests stay can be very uplifting.

A major portion of our customers are from major cities such as New York and Boston. Most of which are looking to do exactly what you mentioned in your review, and that is escape. Those places can be great places to live, but they are as you mention, very fast paced. The Berkshires being such a short drive from both of these locations, offers that chance to slow down. Whether its catching a concert at Tanglewood, home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, visiting some of the many historical sites and museums, or even just taking the time to enjoy the nature around you, the Berkshires have something for everyone.

Thank you again for the staying with us and for the wonderful review. If you have any questions, concerns, or would just like to make a future reservation, do not hesitate to contact me directly at 413-243-2700, or by email at rmcnary@blackswaninnberkshires.com
