The Porches Inn consists of seven renovated Victorian-era buildings that originally provided housing for the area’s mill workers. Located across the street from MASS MoCA, Porches’ guest rooms and public spaces employ a clever synthesis of retro and contemporary designs. The inn’s 47 rooms and suites are fully wired, offering free WiFi, BluRay/DVD players and complimentary DVDs. Porches' healthful continental breakfast is included in the room rate and may be eaten in the Breakfast Room, on the porch (weather permitting) or delivered to your room in the inn's signature metal lunchbox. The inn features a year-round heated outdoor pool, hot tub, sauna, bonfire pit, fitness room and meeting rooms for retreats and special events.

The staff always make us feel like returning family. You have to like or laugh with the granny chic but the beds are comfortable, the bathrooms have space to move around, the water pressure is great, and the breakfast is wide ranging and tasty. You can walk to Mass MOCA, drive 10 minutes to the Williams College Art Museum or 15 minutes to the Clark - and then you can come back and soak in the hot tub. We like shoulder season best - fewer crowds, lower prices, equally good service and comfort.

Porches Inn is a wonderful place to spend time. Friendly staff, beautiful rooms, and heated pool are only some of the reasons I come back often. Right across the street from Mass MoCA and a short walk to great restaurants and unique shopping make this a fun retreat with friends or a romantic getaway. Other museums and hiking trails are just a short car ride away. I really can't think of one thing I would change about this place.

Super staff, clean and charming ambiance. The included breakfast was really perfect -- something for everyone. WIsh we caught a show in that music hall! It looked amazing. We did enjoy the heated pool, with heated stones around the pool and spa -- that was great! The sauna was great, and the extra living room area connected was a nice spot to rest before heading off to the museum for the day. Next time we will use the firepits on the hill. The staff was so helpful, kind and CHEERFUL.

Our family stayed at The Porches for a quick ski getaway. The room was perfect, with plenty of space for all four of us. It was cozy, lovely bathroom, comfy bedding. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub despite the cold, and the breakfast couldn't be beat. The staff was so friendly and helpful.

A very charming and unique place. Wonderful staff and a great location, especially if you're going to MASS MoCA. Only disappointment was the complimentary breakfast - at these prices we expected something much better.

If you are in North Adams area, the place to stay is Porches. The rooms are imaginatively decorated and very country chic. So comfortable. The staff is tremendously friendly. You can walk across the street to MassMoca. Great place to stay.

Great weekend in North Adams at The Porches. We booked an extended stay suite which had a fireplace and kitchenette with mini fridge,microwave, toaster oven and French press coffee. We also had a washer and dryer in unit which was nice especially to dry our robes after returning from the pool. We took a quick drive to Mt Greylock State Reservation to snowshoe, visit to Susan B Anthony birthplace museum, Williams College Museum of Art, Clark Art Institute(free admission in Feb), Mass MoCA (always fun). Quick walk to great restaurants(Ramuntos, Grazie and Big Daddy’s BBQ outside MoCA and across from great brewery Bright Ideas Brewing.) Heated outdoor pool, hot tub and sauna were fun and the hotel provides robes to keep you warm on the trek to and from. Watched the Super Bowl in the meeting room next to pool as the tv was much bigger than the one in our room. Didn’t use it but there is also a nice outdoor fire pit on site. Great trip!

A favorite spot for art, architecture, hospitality. We have been coming to Porches, Mass MOCA, for five years. Each trip more enjoyable. Fun to watch construction of the new building next to Studio 9. can't wait to see it finished.
