Small and Cozy BnB

5 on June 16, 2014

My husband and I stayed here for our 2nd wedding anniversary and we are so happy we chose this little place to spend our weekend. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfast... absolutely delicious! We have stayed at quite a few bed and breakfasts before and this one had the best breakfast we ever had. The stay includes a 3-course meal and it kept us full until dinner time! The inn keepers, David and Brian, are so warm and friendly and very knowledgeable about the Watkins Glen area and offered tons of info about events going on and places to wine, dine, and shop. David and Brian were also so accommodating to me and my husband's dietary needs (both of us are vegetarian and he is also gluten-free), which we appreciated to the fullest extent. We enjoyed our stay at the Blackberry Inn so much and discovering all that this area has to offer (it's so beautiful!). We can't wait to go back, in fact, we are already planning our next stay here :)


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


a gem in Watkins Glen

5 on September 12, 2013

Our visit to Watkins Glen couldn't have been more fun, and that was largely due to the hospitality of Brian and David. Where did they learn to be such great hosts?? A lovingly restored house in a perfect (and quiet!) location with fabulous beds and a breakfast I was still thinking about two weeks later--what's not to love? Thank you, Brian and David!!

Delicious Blackberry Inn

5 on September 04, 2013

Every now and then you find a perfect jewel of an Inn in your travels. This is one that truly shines like a diamond. This is the second time I have stayed at Blackberry Inn and it just gets better and better. Brian and David are the best hosts...there when you want them, and not when you don't. Their restored Inn is pitch perfect...comfortable, stylish, warm, peaceful and in a perfect spot in Watkins Glen to walk the town or hike the Falls. Breakfast is a culinary marvel, and you leave reluctantly, knowing you will make it a destination next time. Don't miss! Roxie Bacon
