What it's like

The Inn at Blackstone has a rich history dating back to 1894 as a finishing school, and it's been an integral part of Blackstone's story ever since. The Inn features impressive Neoclassical architecture that has stood the test of time, and its grand grounds are just as magnificent as the building itself. Guests can choose from a variety of room options, including those located in former classrooms! Regardless of your choice, you're sure to make lasting memories while staying at The Inn at Blackstone.

Independent spirit

Making history feel like home.

Small touches

Each of the 113 guest rooms on this property has been lovingly restored while preserving as much of the building's history as possible. As a guest, you'll catch glimpses of the past in the form of century-old wood flooring, campus doors, and even many of the original windows — all while enjoying modern amenities, such as complimentary WiFi, comfy beds, and luxurious bathrooms.

Eat and drink

Start your morning with a hot breakfast served daily in The Acorn, the onsite restaurant at the Inn. Later in the day, take advantage of the property's prime location and explore the dining options in nearby downtown Blackstone. Or, if you're feeling adventurous, plan a picnic on the picturesque hotel grounds. If you'd prefer to stay in, be sure to book a room equipped with a full kitchen, so you can whip up your own culinary masterpiece from the privacy of your room!

And more

The Inn at Blackstone welcomes all its guests in style — your pet included! Your four-legged friend will receive a special welcome treat, access to pet-depot stations, and unlimited free smells of the grounds.
