Elegance combined with ultra comfort

My husband and I have stayed in this very beautiful B&B 2 times—both times we’ve been unable to take full advantage of it’s cozy atmosphere. We prefer B&B’s to hotels, when possible. In this case we were visiting our daughter’s family nearby, therefore unable to spend good quality time onsite. Maybe someday we’ll return without notification to our family that we’re “in town”¿¿

Outstanding Visit!

My wife and I spent a Saturday night here in December. Fantastic view from the outside and warm and inviting inside! The service was the best we’ve received anywhere in east coast B&B’s! Already dreaming of our next stay!

Wonderful evening and morning!!

5 on November 26, 2017

Very easy to find, quaint grounds. We strolled the grounds, met the horses ( well as the "yard cat"). We stayed in the Jefferson Suite, it was incredibly nice... great evening sherry, and we slept like "babies". Breakfast the next morning was also very nice -- two other couples, about our age, and very delicious food! The best B&B that we have visited in years!!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for the lovely response. We love to hear from our guests! Please come back soon!

Wonderful, wonderful night!!

5 on November 14, 2017

We stayed at the Black Horse Inn for one night in early November... peak of the foliage season, and a beautiful locale!! It was one of the nicest B&B experiences we've ever had -- and we've stayed at numerous B&B's over the years!! Quaint room, gracious hosts, nice full breakfast... we walked around grounds and loved it!! Even the curious cat...

First time visit

This was our first stay but hope it will not be the last. Everything about our stay was wonderful from the warm welcome to relaxing with a glass of wine and snacks on the sun porch to the comfortable bed and room for a wonderful night's sleep.

Innkeeper Response
