What You'll Get
The bed & breakfast inn evolved from a series of failed lodging combinations, most notably futons & Twinkies, and the short-lived wine-filled waterbeds & scissors. Stay in an elegant, Twinkie-less bed & breakfast with today's Groupon, which gets you a stay at The Grey Swan Inn Bed & Breakfast, located in Blackstone, about a three hour drive west of Norfolk. Choose one of the following Groupons:
- For $105, you get a one-night stay in a King suite (a $210 value)
- For $80, you get a one-night stay in a Queen suite (a $160 value)
Built in 1902 by a prominent Blackstonian, The Grey Swan Inn retains the turn-of-the-century charm with Southern pine, hardwood floors, and English wainscoting. Choose the King suite deal to land a night in Grey Swan's third-story Chaise lounge, complete with an ottoman and a rocking chair– an ideal setting for honeymooners or those stopping by after the Honeymooners convention. With the Queen suite deal, you'll either land in the Wicker Room with its white wicker chairs, or in a different second-floor room with a gorgeous antique dresser (room selection is based on availability). Both deals includes a long list of extra amenities for Groupon buyers, including an in-room morning coffee service, in-room breakfast (only available for the King suite), flowers, and a fruit and cheese tray. You can also sip on sparkling cider in souvenir glasses from the comfort of your room. Once your stay is finished, say good-bye to Blackstone after Grey Swan's gracious staff gives you a dozen muffins to-go.
Located just off of Highway 460, near the route of Lee's Retreat Civil War Trail, the Grey Swan Inn is located in close proximity to several tourist hotspots, like Fort Pickett, the scuba diving wonderland of Lake Rawlings, and Green Front Furniture with its famous sentient, cigar-smoking footstools.
- In addition to pleasant conversation with the Hasbroucks, I enjoyed the company of the house cat, who, Jim informed me, likes watching people eat. I thought maybe he was just jealous. I envied him, too, because he didn't have to leave that afternoon. – Becky Krystal, Washington Post
- I loved the large wrap around porch but the breakfast was delightful. We hope our business in Blackstone takes roots so we can go back. – Allisontwelve, TripAdvisor
