We are within walking distance to Seneca Lake, the Watkins Glen State Park, and the shops, galleries and eateries located in the heart of historic Watkins Glen on Franklin Street. Your hosts Brian and David will make you feel at home in their 1830's Greek Revival Farmhouse with its architectural woodwork including eyebrow and floor to ceiling windows. The house features three-guest rooms, a guest living and dining room that is perfect for making new friends, reading, or relaxing after a fun filled day of adventure. The Blackberry Inn Bed & Breakfast is beautifully decorated with a blend of contemporary and antique pieces from family and friends. The Inn features original pieces of art painted by your host David. We are a short drive to the Watkins Glen International Racetrack.

Great Stay

4.6 on April 14, 2014

Everything was great and I would return. The room with the private bath was booked so i had a shared bath. I was ok with it because the other room to use the bath was empty. I have a pet peeve of bathrooms so I'm not sure I would want to share one with someone I didn't know. On the other side David and Brian are great hosts and I will return for the room with the private bath.


Where to start...????

To say we had an extraordinary weekend is an understatement!! We arrived at The Blackberry Inn Bed & Breakfast on a Friday and by the time we were saying our goodbyes on Sunday we felt as though we had made la lifelong friendship with David and Brian! The Inn was warm and welcoming, the food was outstanding and creative, and most importantly, the atmosphere was gracious and genuine...Many thanks to Davis and Brian for an outstanding weekend! We most definitely look forward to our return visit!! Michele, Trip, Chris & Mike XO to Sandy :)


Charming B&B in Watkins Glen!

5 on November 18, 2013

We came to the The Blackberry Inn this past Columbus Day weekend. My boyfriend and I stayed in the largest guest room (Room 3) which had a queen-sized bed and a private bath. The room was clean, cozy, roomy, and beautifully decorated. The B&B was also quick walk from the downtown area and a very short drive to The Gorge Trail (Watkins Glen's biggest attraction). Brian and David were wonderful hosts and extremely knowledgeable about the area. The breakfast they served was outstanding! They use all fresh, local food, and you could definitely taste the quality in their ingredients. Our breakfasts included poached apples, homemade scones, buckwheat pancakes, french toast, fresh apple juice, fluffy scrambled eggs and more! Their servings are also HUGE, so kudos to you if you can actually finish it! In the evening, our wonderful hosts even treated us to some donuts and cider! This place is great for a romantic weekend or a trip with friends/family. I would definitely come back, and hope to rent all 3 rooms next year with my family for a nice wine getaway in the Finger Lakes! Thank you for everything Brian and David!


Best place to stay in the Finger Lakes!

Great anniversary weekend!

4.4 on November 17, 2013

It was our 35th Anniversary weekend. First time visit to finger lakes area and Watkins Glen. Had to make last-minute accommodation arrangements and stumbled upon the Blackberry Inn with an opening for the night we needed. David and Brian were great inn-keepers that made you feel at home in their Inn. Their dog Sandy was a sweetie! We will be back! - Darrell & Sue
