Our inn is ideal for a small family reunion, girlfriends get-away, “mancation”, scrapbooking groups, quilters, spiritual retreat, book study, business team building, with 5 guest rooms and accommodations for up to 12 guests. Our dining room and parlors can be used for your meetings and break out sessions. Call us and let us help you design a 2-3 day event for your group!

Check-Out: 11 am

Breakfast:

Breakfast is available from 6:30 to 9:00 am in the dining room.   Coffee is usually available an hour before you eat, but for those early birds, we can set the timer for the coffee to brew at a custom time.  We are happy to accommodate special dietary requirements if given notice.  We serve a full breakfast, rotating between a savory and sweet themed breakfast.  While we do not cook to order, we do take in consideration your likes and dislikes, so be sure to let us know at check-in.  Other meal options are light fare, protein smoothies, and for those on the run, a breakfast-to-go.

Breakfast can be served in the King Suite for an additional service charge.  See Add-on Amenities for details.

Alcoholic Beverages: 

The Grey Swan Inn has recently received its B&B Virginia ABC license which allows our guests who 21 years old and above to drink either in their guest room and in Common Areas of the Inn. You may bring your own or add items to your reservation. For the safety and comfort of our guests, please drink responsibly.

Additional Notes:

For everyone’s safety and consideration, only registered guests are permitted on the property unless permission has been obtained by the innkeepers. If you are planning activities that may include non-registered guests, please call and ask if we can accommodate you before you make your reservation. Only registered guests are allowed in the guest rooms at any time. Non-registered guests are permitted to use the common areas (dining room, parlors, porch) with registered guests. Non-registered guests are not allowed on the premises after 10:00 PM.

Children may be accommodated in King Suite, maximum occupancy is 5 persons.

Other rooms may accommodate children – one adult with one child. No additional beds, cots, or portable child beds can be used in the queen or full bedded rooms.

We’re sorry we cannot accommodate your pet. You may enjoy our 13 year old Llewellyn Setter, Chelsea, who is not allowed in the guest rooms. Boarding may be available in the area – please call us for details.

Service Animals:

Please let the innkeeper know when booking your reservation that a service dog will be accompanying you.  Service animals are permitted in all areas where guests are allowed. Service animals are animals that are trained to perform a specific task for the benefit of a person with a disability. The Grey Swan Inn innkeepers may ask what task(s) the service animal performs.

The following types of animals are not permitted:

Comfort Animals: Animals not trained to perform a specific task, but which are said to provide emotional support or to relieve anxiety simply by their presence.

Pets: Animals for which no claim of any service is made.

You must keep your service animal under control at all times. The animal should always be on a leash, harness or other tether, unless either the handler is unable because of his/her disability to use a harness, leash or other tether, or the use of a harness, leash or other tether would interfere with the service animal’s safe, effective performance of work or tasks, in which case the service animal must be otherwise under the handler’s control.

Smoking: We are a non-smoking Inn – an area is provided outside on the porch for guests who smoke.

 

Testimonial:  We haven’t been in Blackstone, VA for 50 years since duty at Camp Pickett.  Lo and behold we came here yesterday, needed to stay over and are overwhelmed by your lovely, quaint bed and breakfast.  Charming, warm and friendly and relaxing are understatements…… Thank you so very much!     Bob & Ann W.
