One of the best!

5 on July 28, 2016

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at the Berry Manor over July 4th -- and wished we could have stayed much like longer. After we checked in, got a brief tour and were shown our room, I knew we were in for a treat when my husband said, "That was the best check in experience I ever had." The people are all so nice and helpful. You feel like you are staying with friends. The home and rooms are beautiful, with a bathroom like a spa! Of course I have to mention the "pie and ice cream anytime you want it" benefit. Within five minutes of check in we had our first taste and weren't shy about going back. This really is a wonderful BnB!


Wonderful place to stay!

5 on July 13, 2016

This was our 2nd visit to Berry Manor and we were not disappointed! Our room was lovely, as was the rest of the house. Mike was a hoot in the mornings and Cheryl was a lovely hostess. The food was to die for! Evening pie was out of this world. Hospitality was fantastic. They helped us plan our excursions and even gave us maps to help us find the places we wanted to visit. I would recommend this B&B to anyone who is looking for a lovely place to stay!

Consistently wonderful

We just stayed for our eighth time. Every visit has been consistently relaxing and delicious breakfasts. We look forward to our winter get away.


PERFECT!

We had a wonderful time at the Inn. The room was beautifully appointed with all amenities exactly as advertised. The breakfasts were delicious! I plan on returning in a couple of months. The staff was most helpful in recommending restaurants in the area.


The owners maintain extremely high quality

We had stayed in Rockland at Berry Manor on other occasions. We thought we had caught the inn at a good time on other occasions. Everything had been perfect. Here we are at Thanksgiving 2015 and the inn was perfect and beautiful. The breakfasts were wonderful. The food was delicious. The staff members were delightful. I was in business for 30 years. Amazing quality of service is very nearly impossible. Cheryl and Mike are somehow managing it.


The "BEST" - from the Inn to the staff - to the wonderful breakfasts and pies!

5 on December 02, 2015

We have become annual guests - and going back each year feels like going back to visit old friends/family. Cheryl and Mike and staff are walking encyclopedias - where to dine, what to do, where to go to find an item you are looking for, etc. The breakfasts are such a wonderful way to start a day. Cheryl knows my husband's favorites - from breakfast to pies, and always makes sure she has a fresh baked one for us while we are there. It 's a great area to be your home base for exploring the coast, or going inland for a day trip. We can't say enough about this wonderful inn, and the great memories that we have experienced while being there. Put this on your "bucket list" and you will not be disappointed.


Best anniversary trip!

We could not have stayed in a more romantic place! It's amazing and the staff was helpful/knowledgeable about everything you could do in/around the area. It definitely exceeded all of our expectations!


4 Stays and Counting....

5 on October 28, 2015

We have stayed at the Berry Manor Inn 4 times and it won't be out last! Every time we stay, we check into a new room. Each room has it's own charm and character. We'll continue to stay in a new room until we find our favorite.... or just start over again! Cheryl, Mike and Staff are amazing! They go out of their way to make our stay perfect! And Breakfast, words can't explain how wonderful it is. We look forward to our next stay and trust me there will be.


Love this B&B

This was our third time staying at the Berry Manor Inn and we loved it. The entire staff are friendly and informative. Rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfasts are awesome.
