Two hours from Boston and three hours from New York City, Black Swan Inn is located in the Berkshires -- an area praised by Frommer's as "a leafy playground for urban dwellers seeking a rural escape."

Mountain adventures and lakeside relaxation await, with cozy rooms offering a great base for guests visiting the area. Rooms feature private balconies overlooking Laurel Lake and have free Wi-Fi. All stays also include a free continental breakfast each morning. 

Rent tandem or single kayaks, paddle boats or pontoon boats and spend the day relaxing on the lake or drive less than 10 minutes to the Lee Premium Outlets to uncover impressive bargains. 

Art lovers can peruse 998 original paintings and drawings at the Normal Rockwell Museum, located within a 15-minute drive of the property. For a vibrant display of fall foliage and great hiking, drive just 20 minutes to October Mountain State Forest -- the largest state forest in Massachusetts.

Rooms had a fresh / updated feel. Bed was AMAZINGLY comfortable! Bed night sleep we've had in forever.

Black Swan Inn should get the in-room fireplaces working again. Other than that, the stay was without complaint.

We also appreciated the convenience of the onsite Indian restaurant (Mint), but the service and food were so-so.

The cleanliness of the rooms and the friendliness of the staff. The staff person on Saturday couldn’t do enough to keep the breakfast area stocked, she was just awesome and cheerful.

Location is beautiful and peaceful. The rooms are spacious, modern and very clean. We were a group of 6 and felt very comfortable celebrating our 40 Years of friendship. Everything we needed or wanted was right there for us. Great Choice !

Carrie and her staff were great hosts. I had a glitch with my reservation and was forunate that Carrie is a caring and true professional. She was able to provise me with a Lakeside room after the mix up on the day I of my arrival. She kept in touch and confirmed with a phone call she had been able to accomodate me when all was said and done. Proffesionalism at it's best! THANK YOU CARRIE!

The view (2nd floor on the lake side), the staff and service (needed an extra blanket - was brought up immediately). Quiet room, comfortable bed, nice couch, good refrigerator.

The fitness room was disappointing. Small, messy, trash all over, dirty towels, TV blaring, etc. Next time, hope to find it cleaned up.

The King Deluxe rooms were overbooked and they blamed Travelzoo for that. They did put us in a room facing the lake, but I didn't get any refund for the different room. They did offer one hour free with the Platoon boat - which we never used. Lots of cob webs in the room and on the balcony. Breakfast wasn't really that good.
