“19th Century Elegance”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

As part of a special anniversary vacation, my wife and I were fortunate to stay at the elegant Blackinton Manor B & B in North Adams, MA. This early 19th-century federal mansion, with its soaring ceilings, grand staircase, and stately vertical windows, is a treat to experience. Our solicitous hosts have added 21st century comforts while honoring this historic residence.
Our room, the English Suite, was delightfully spacious, with a large main room, a pretty sitting room, and a lovely bathroom replete with red marble tile. To ensure guests' comfort, both an air conditioner and an electric wood stove were provided. Every evening, guests could pour themselves a glass of sherry or brandy. In the spacious dining room, the breakfasts were delicious. One morning it was perfectly cooked scrambled eggs made to order with cheese or other ingredients. The next morning, yummy blueberry pancakes with sausages appeared. Plenty of hot coffee or tea, and a selection of juices and breakfast breads, were offered daily. We plan to return to this B & B, perhaps next summer, so that we can enjoy the swimming pool!

Room Tip: Each room has a distinct personality. The B & B's website is very helpful with information...

Just returned from our three night stay in the Carriage Room at the Blackington Manor. Laura and Paul are excellent hosts who made us feel very welcome and provided excellent ideas for local restaurants and activities. Our breakfasts were delicious, especially the blueberry pancakes! Our room was clean and comfortable. We would definitely visit again when we are in the area.

Room Tip: The Carriage Room is a good choice if you want a room with a private entrance.

This inn was first rate and friendly, with a warm welcome in the country kitchen/entrance. Food was wonderful, especially the home baked cookies and elegant breakfasts. I enjoyed viewing the art and antiques.

Room Tip: We stayed in the carriage room, which had a piano and porch entrance.

We stayed here for one night on our way home from Toronto to Boston and were really glad we booked this for the last night of our trip. It's a lovely inn that's exceptionally decorated and exactly what you would imagine for an 1830s-era inn. We stayed in the very comfortable and clean English Suite. The evening glasses of brandy and wine were a really nice touch. The french toast for breakfast was quite good. The innkeepers were very friendly and helpful and obviously very proud of their fine property. They have a book of local restaurant menus that we found helpful (we ate at Espana which was very good and very close to the inn). We would highly recommend this B&B and hope to stay there again.

Room Tip: The English Suite was quite luxurious

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.
