Modern, mellow and marvelous with creative and inspiring decor. – The Scene
The adjacent Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art was the inspiration for this inventive inn. It consists of five separate buildings constructed on the grounds of a 19th-century mill. Three of the buildings house accommodations, while the others contain a pool house and a restaurant.
The interiors reflect the art-deco style with a contemporary flair and are filled with modern conveniences. Guest rooms offer clean, open spaces and bathrooms with pedestal tubs and sinks. Duplex suites feature narrow-winding staircases to the bedrooms, adding to their charm. You'll find high-speed Internet, as well as other tech-savvy treats such as rentable laptops and audio/visual equipment. Each building boasts a front porch where guests can linger on rocking chairs. Breakfast is complimentary each morning of your stay. For other meals, the museum's restaurant is a good bet for a bite, or you can venture out to other great Berkshire eateries.
Porches Inn is the greatest – I have stayed at the Porches Inn twice. I went up to North Adams to see the exhibitions at MASSMoCA, a tremendous experience. The inn was filled with delightful surprises -- the rain showerhead and the huge bathrooms. I am embarassed to admit that I loved rolling around in the Frette sheets! Having drinks by the fireplace and meeting other interesting people, particularly people passionate about art was a real highlight. This is definitely the meeting place for people interested in contemporary culture.
OK. Eleven Restaurant at MASSMoCA is a cool place to have a drink, but the three meals I had there were all dissapointing. Best restaurant in North Adams is Milan at 55 Main. Fabulous cooking, decent portions, a theatrical, generous and somewhat crazy chef, an intuitive, friendly and knowledgeable sommelier, and a great welcoming time for a single female traveler.
Porches Inn is not to be missed.
not your run of the mill B&B – An amazing restoration of mill worker housing, with an elegant pool, totally wired, and funky decoration. The beds are amazing.
Neighborhood has a ways to go, but across the street is MASS MoCA.
Absolutely Excellent! – All the amenities and they're hip and trendy, too! Great atmosphere. Great entertainment nearby - MASS MoCA and the brand new restaurant 11 right next door, 10 minutes from The Clark Art Institute and Williams College Museum of Art, AND centrally located between Mt. Snow and Stockbridge. It doesn't get any better than this!
