A wonderful balance between old and new: The Porches Inn consists of six Victorian row houses formerly occupied by mill workers, refreshed and painted in vibrant marigold, blue, salmon, red, green, and gray, connected by two long porches lined with rocking chairs that face across the Hoosic River to the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art - one of the world’s premier showcases for modern art.
You'll find colorful rooms with painted floors, Vermont-made and vintage furniture, locally crafted patchwork duvets, claw-foot bathtubs (or Jacuzzi-style, if that's your thing), and paint-by-numbers art from the 50s and 60s. The extended-stay suites feature kitchenettes and washer/dryer units; a few rooms even boast spiral staircases and lofts. The center house serves as the reception building and includes two living rooms (one with a cozy fireplace) a breakfast room, and one of the property’s two private meeting rooms (with old fashioned blackboards) are perfect for corporate retreats and conferences.
Outside, enjoy a year-round heated pool with heated deck, a hot tub, a bonfire pit, a WiFi enabled gazebo in the woods and a sauna, shower, and changing rooms. There's an onsite fitness room as well. And yes, your well-trained pets are welcomed.
