  • Charming but with modern upgrades

    by kdevo on 2019-03-11 06:13 pm

    Had a truly lovely stay at Porches. The location could not be better (across the street) for those visiting Mass MoCA. Loved the history of the place (a series of colorful converted row houses). The accommodation was the perfect blend of a charming country inn feel, but completely updated and with modern touches (like a glass Kohler shower). The bathroom was also massive and beds deeply comfortable. The facilities are big enough that you don't feel stifled like at a smaller true B&B. We loved the 24/7 outdoor heated pool and hot tub, as well as the Harney & Sons tea always available in the lobby. Breakfast was solid as well. Would definitely return.

  • Stop, Plan, Go NOW

    I received a gift of an unexpected day off and needed to put together a mini vacation in a day. In the back of my mind I remembered a glowing review of the Porches Inn when it opened and have always wanted to check out Mass MoCA. I headed to the museum to catch the 2PM tour and glad I did -- got so much more out of the visit! Then across the street to the Porches -- how cozy, how cute, how local Converted row houses for the factory workers that once served the mill buildings that is now Mass MoCA. The common space was casual, comfortable, warm and with a fine little bar to boot. Off I headed to my house and passed a couple of hardy guys in the outdoor jacuzzi as I eyed the steaming year round swimming pool. Later I thought. Up to my room in the Sage building I opened the door to magic. Large room, 2 really comfortable chairs and beyond the frosted divide -- a clawfoot bathtub with herbal soaking salts waiting to be open and poured. Wonderful! After dinner I nestled in = found an old movie on television (quite a nifty TV gadget allowing for all sorts of viewing) and reveled in the quiet bliss. They include breakfast in the common area or you can order the 'lunch box' to be delivered at your door, which I opted for. HOLY COW -- what a clever little thing. Old school metal boxes with a thermos of coffee, soft croissant, daily paper, milk and juice tucked inside. What a wonderful find. Wishing them the best.

    Dear MarthaP591,

    Thank you so much for taking the time to post this very thoughtful review of our gracious Inn. You have certainly captured our essence through great writing... you even included a touch of humor which was especially fun (i.e. passing a couple of hardy guys in the hot tub)!

    Our reception area and year-round amenities, to include an outdoor heated pool with radiant heated decking, hot tub, sauna, bonfire pit, and fitness center, are available to our guests 24/7/365. We are pleased that you had an unexpected day off and planned your mini vacation with us to experience the history and culture of our hotel and local community.

    Regarding the in-room breakfast boxes, they are an integral piece of our homage celebrating the historical mill workers who once resided under our rooftops. So glad you enjoyed the presentation.

  • Nicely Restored Row Houses Across from Mass Moca

    by CapeCarl on 2019-02-02 02:07 pm

    The Porches Inn consists of a group of row houses refurbished with very contemporary facilities. Our room had a spacious bath with both a traditional tub and a modern shower.
    A substantial breakfast buffet is offered in the house that also serves as the inn's office. We came with some friends and arranged to all have rooms in the same building so we could get together easily when we were heading out to the museums our dinner. They staff was was very friendly. There are a number of good restaurants as well as the museum within walking distance.

  • Unique hotel with lots of little extras

    by Jeanette L on 2019-01-28 04:28 pm

    We loved Porches! Interesting architecture, heated pool and hottub and sauna are open 24 x7 all year long!! Robes in room. Night light and usb charger. Everywhere you look there were little personal details. Homey decor. Super comfortable beds. Lobby has fireplace and board games and a pop up bar.

  • Love this place but...

    by NYPetunia on 2019-01-25 05:19 am

    We travel to the area about once per month to visit family in the area. Love the rooms and vibe and amenities at The Porches. Would love to stay there all the time, best place in the area but.. Unfortunately, we are allergic to cats and feel uncomfortable every time we enter the main building.

    Dear NYPetunia,

    We appreciate your kind words and your patronage!

    We're very sorry to learn that you haven't stayed with us as often as you would have liked due to your cat allergies. Please be advised that our diluted calico, Sabine, is no longer with us. While we miss her terribly, the sting of her passing has been softened by the arrival of Max, our long-haired Chihuahua pup. Unlike Sabine, Max doesn't live in our main building but is usually here during the day, five days a week. He is a playful delight!

    Hopefully you aren't allergic to Chihuahuas and can now stay with us each and every time you visit the Berkshires! Thank you for recommending the Porches Inn at MASS MoCA!

    Warm regards,
