I cannot say enough about my experience while at the Blackinton Manor. My room was especially comfortable and just what I expected it to be. Even though my stay was short, I enjoyed the ambience and architecture of this beautiful manor. One feels swept back in time. I would highly recommend staying here! The wine and cheese was an elegant touch as was the delectible breakfast. I would highly recommend this Inn to anyone seeking a quiet, relaxing, get-a-way. Kudos to Laura and Paul Macionus, for they are in the company of the best innkeepers anyone could ask for.
