Perfect Honeymoon

4.6 on October 20, 2016

After our incredible wedding weekend a few hours away, we drove up, happy and exhausted, to the Inn for four nights (Mon-Fri) and stayed in the Diadem Suite (formerly the master bedroom). Our week was perfect. This suite allowed ample space for luxurious relaxation. The breakfasts were exceptional (thank you Beau and Margaret!). Our fellow guests were a delight. The service always exceeded expectations - truly outstanding. The onsite restaurant (Hearth & Vine) was casual and delicious (we ate their twice). The wine tasting experience onsite was generous and special. On-site massages? Yes please and thank you. We took a beautiful 1.5 mile hike on well-marked trails on the grounds. We were 20 minutes or less away from plenty of wineries and great restaurants. And we were fortunate to be there during the week of the Harvest Dinner (apparently every 2nd Wednesday): a five-course, locally sourced meal, with wine pairings for each course. WOW! The Inn, and particularly the Diadem suite, are on the pricey end, but worth it. We have already booked a return for next year in the same suite. This is a must-stay B&B destination.

Fall color in Sutton's Bay

A wonderful mid week visit to enjoy fall color and experience the Inn for a possible future wedding was relaxing, and enjoyable in every way. The Inn was welcoming , the attention to detail exemplary, the staff friendly, professional, and helpful. We especially enjoyed the cocktail hour and the fire pit off the lovely terrace. The fall color was breathtaking! Looking forward to returning soon!

Special Stay

5 on May 18, 2015

We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary at BSF. Jill and Kellie were wonderful hostesses. Our room was spacious and very comfortable. The grounds and winery were fabulous. We thoroughly enjoyed the cocktail hour and visiting the horses. The gourmet breakfast was a reason to return by itself! Thank you for making our anniversary an event to remember!

Very nice, but expensive. Could improve on a few things.

My husband and I stayed in the Castor and Pollux suite for one night over Labor Day weekend. Very quiet and spacious. TV was off-center in the room and could have been a larger screen. Bathroom was nice, newly updated, but had no counter space around the sink nor a convenient place to hang towels. Seems like they have some wasted space in the bathroom. Our (open and named) complementary bottle of wine was apparently accidentally taken from the wine fridge in the hallway by another guest later at night...but we got a new one upon request at checkout. I advise you to get there early enough to enjoy the place for the time you have there, for the price you pay. We missed the complementary wine/snacks in the early evening. Breakfast was outstanding, but an older gentleman staff member seemed to keep intruding on our breakfast time with staring/questions, which was not appreciated.

wedding weekend was awesome!

My daughters and I stayed with you for a wedding near by. Our stay was incredible! Every detail was thought of, and we felt very spoiled! Our room was so beautiful! We are now planning to come back with our husbands to show off this amazing Inn!!

Beyond Excellent

My sister and I took our mother to the Inn for her 75th birthday celebration. From the moment we walked in the door we were made to feel welcome. The room was more than we imagined from the photos- the staff treated us as if we were regulars ( which we may just become :-)) Our room was promptly kept every morning while we went to breakfast. From a food perspective, everythin that we were served at breakfast, the wine receptions and the BBQ we attended were excellent and the presentation beautiful. We cannot say enough about the beauty, the kindness and the service of the entire staff and we thank them for the wonderful memories we were able to create from our stay at Black Star Farms.

Great stay
