The Old Inn dates back to 1760 and when you enter the building it seems like you have stepped back in time. The rooms are simply, but beautifully decorated in the spirit of the 18th century. But don't worry, the bathrooms are large and modern. Ours even had a Jacuzzi.
The village of New Marlborough is tiny and beautifully maintained, full of lovely old houses with large properties and pretty cottage gardens. You definitely feel you have entered Brigadoon, the old-time village that comes back to earth for one day every 100 years.
The food at the Old Inn is spectacular! The prix fixe tasting menu is divine. The a la carte menu is celestial. Service is attentive and excellent. Dinner is served entirely in candlelight. The breakfast provided with a night's stay is billed as a continental breakfast, but I don't know what continent this refers to as it includes a buffet with a panoply of fresh fruits, melons and berries, home made granola, and boiled eggs. Coffee, tea and juice are served at your table and the server also brings a basket of delectable pastries, muffins, scones, etc. with butter and jam. We didn't want lunch. In the summer breakfast is served on a lovely screened-in porch on the back of the building.
There is even a swimming pool for guests to use at the Thayer House across the green from the Inn. The Thayer House, also owned by the Innkeepers offers six additional rooms.
