Staying at The Porches Inn at MASS MoCA was delightful. My husband and are very fond of historic buildings, and how they have reclaimed the row houses is remarkable. I highly recommend this location for anyone wanting to visit the MoCA. There is also a package available that lowers the entry fee for the MoCA as well as the Clark... More

We had a day to travel from NY to Providence and wanted to explore Western MA. Friends advised us to try for a room at Porches. We spent one short evening and hope to return someday for a mid week stay. The staff was friendly, the room was great and invited true rest and comfort. We didn't use the facilities... More

This row of converted 2-story dwellings was renovated with extraordinary care, architectural integrity and good taste. It's got charming, '50s-era furnishings but all the modern amenities are there as well. The rooms are large and well-equipped and the staff is excellent, friendly and very helpful. This is a delightful place to stay and is just a block or so away... More

The Porches is a unique place--converted row houses made into warm, inviting inns with large rooms, expert decor, wonderful facilities, and that unique New England feel. Guest services were outstanding, and the pool/sauna/hot tub were wonderful. This place feels like home, from the rocking chairs on the porches to the comfy beds to the vintage rooms. This isn't a place... More

We’ve been staying at the Porches for the 10 years or so and it’s one of our favorite hotels. On our most recent visit, however, it felt like both the management and the rest of the staff were a bit “checked out.” Despite the fact that we’ve stayed here more times than we can count, they asked us at check...

My rating would be higher but at the prices charged, we expected an upscale B&B, and Porches does not meet that standard. The room we had was very big, as was the bathroom. Room amenities were good and everything worked well, except the internet as noted below. We enjoyed the heated pool. Issues we had were: 1. Porches stretches about... More

If you would like a different kind of hotel experience, then this is the place for you. For starters, the hotel layout is six two story Victorian styled homes close together and connected by a porch that runs in front of most of the buildings. The first floor of one of the homes is the location of the lobby, living... More

We were vacationing the Berkshires in a ski condo and planned a day at Mass MOCA. Walking around North Adams, I had commented on how lovely The Porches looked. We made our way into the Inn and my husband surprised me with the keys to a lovely suite. We enjoyed the swimming pool, the buffet breakfast and the cute gazebo... More

We spent two nights celebrating our 45th anniversary. Our suite was clean, large and comfortable. Mass MoCA was literally across the street, and the Clark is only 5 miles away. The continental breakfast was man-compatible.

The look and feel of this inn is definitely modern spin on the classic inn. It's quaint decor and comfortable vibe make for a perfect getaway. It's location is a 2 minute walk from the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art and 30 minute drive to Mount Greylock.
