Situated in North Adams, Massachusetts, a quaint city rooted in the northern Berkshires roughly 130 miles west of Boston, the 47-room Porches Inn garners high praise for its warm atmosphere and cutting-edge design. Occupying a former 19th century mill complex, this trendy boutique property gathers inspiration from the nearby Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art and balances its rustic setting with bold, modern accents. Guest rooms are dressed in earthy green and yellow hues and include minibars and complimentary Wi-Fi access. Most travelers report a pleasant experience overall, praising The Porches Inn's cozy bedding and the spacious bathrooms. Past visitors also highlight the complimentary breakfast as another major draw. Once you've settled into your lodgings, recent guests suggest soaking up the flourishing art scene and nearby boutiques found within walking distance of the hotel. And if you came to embrace the great outdoors rather than the area's craft culture, you'll be happy to note the resort sits close to five ski areas and numerous golf courses.

  • Frommer's Very Highly Recommended



These once-dilapidated mill-workers' houses dating from the 1890s were refurbished and connected with one long porch to become one of New England's quirkiest hotels; they now strike a perfect balance between high-tech and historic — rooms have a mix of retro 1940s and '50s lamps and bungalow-style furnishings, along with stunning bathrooms with slate floors, hot tubs, and mirrors fashioned out of old window frames.

In the past decade, the town of North Adams has undergone a revitalization, spearheaded by the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA); Porches, which opened in 2001, is another example of that change.



Located just adjacent to the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, Porches Inn at MASS MoCA brings a bit of trendy to the traditional Berkshires. This inn features retro décor, an indoor/outdoor pool and bonfire pit for those cold nights that require s'mores.



The Berkshires has so much to offer, and North Adams is a hidden treasure. This block of former textile workers' housing has been transformed into The Porches, a shabby chic gem.
