Certificate of Excellence
The Old Inn on the Green is the centerpiece of the historic and scenic village of New Marlborough. With authentically restored rooms, you'll feel like you've just stepped back in time to the tranquility of the eighteenth century. Our Inn preserves the understated elegance of classic decor, down to the tiny details, like a restaurant that is entirely lit by candle light. Escape with us to a serene and relaxing environment in one of our 11 rooms complete with wifi, a pool, and lounge areas for your enjoyment. Located just outside a broad cultural base, when you stay with us, you are a close to a variety of cultural institutions such as Norman Rockwell Museum, Clark Art Institute, and various natural wonders and trails. Join us for a meal in our cozy and intimate dining room with top quality cuisine by Chef Peter. We also have a newly renovated bar where you can have a drink by the glow of candle light and fireplace. When it's nice outside, dining is open on our canopied garden terrace in the back of the Inn. Your complete satisfaction and relaxation are our top priorities. Our friendly and accommodating staff is here to be sure that your stay is peaceful, and we can be your escape home away from home.

Needed a weekend away from daily hubbub. This was perfect. Quaint rustic ,lovely hosts. Meals were great. Sad jacuzzi in our room did not work. Might not be right for those looking for fancy amenities but we really loved the ambiance and decor

What a setting for a memorable birthday celebration: The Old Inn has a room somewhat set aside from the main dining room, perfect for private gatherings. This past weekend I attended a birthday - attended by 12 people. The Inn (and the "private" room) are a perfect setting for a

We had a wonderful experience staying at the Old Inn, but, to be honest, it may not be for everyone (or at least be prepared). We stayed for two nights, via a Groupon deal which included dinner one night, breakfast for both days, and lunch nearby for one day. It was well worth

Thank you very much for this thoughtful review. We're so glad that you had an enjoyable stay! This whole area is rich in history and we are an historic inn. In fact, we were chosen by Yankee Magazine as the #1 historic inn in New England! However, we do understand the need for modern conveniences(thank goodness for the A/C in warmer months), and we try to strike a balance. That said, we do agree that it is important for people to call and ask us any questions they may have prior to their visit, as we want people to have a pleasurable experience with us. Sincerely, Peter Platt & Meredith Kennard, Owners

This quaint historic inn was charming, if a little worn. The main problem was the stairs to the room. They were extremely steep with very high steps. The really GREAT thing about he inn was the restaurant - 5 stars.

Priscilla, thank you so much for your review. Sorry you had difficulty with the stairs. It's an 18th century building that comes with quirks! We're thrilled that overall, you enjoyed your stay. Hope to have you back again. All the best, Peter Platt & Meredith Kennard, Owners

This was our first time visiting this part of the country. The area was recommended by friends who met us here. Pros and cons to the inn. We stayed in the Thayer House on the second floor. Know there are no elevators or bell boys to handle your luggage, it’s all on you.

Thanks for taking the time to write out this detailed review! Sorry to hear about the Wifi. Oh how we wish that WiFi and cell service were both within our control. This is something that is often misunderstood by visitors to the area, unless they are familiar with life in rural areas or the "forgotten last mile" as we are sometimes referred to. The lack of consistant access to these basic services is a common predicament in areas like ours. When it comes to the pillows, please know that we are always willing to accommodate if there's something not quite right about your room. We want you to be completely comfortable! Many of our guests enjoy going out & about and then returning to the inn for peace and tranquility. It sounds like you were unaware of our location relative to your general interests. But we're glad to hear that you liked your visit with us overall. Best wishes, Peter Platt & Meredith Kennard, Owners

I don't know if they allow dogs. I would call the inn on a land line to ask. The internet and wireless service is terrible at the Inn. They might not ever get your email.

I don't have a menu - but there is both a prix fixe and an a la carte menu. The a la carte is very extensive, and I believe could satisfy anyone's needs.

From The Old Inn, it's an easy 20 min. drive to Stockbridge and Lenox is another 10 min. further up Route 7

I don't see a question either....but I agree with Carrottop that we found Peter to be a straight up guy....but not so good with the details. We mentioned a coupon offer when we made our reservation...but didn't actually use that coupon, and he didn't charge us because he thought we had the coupon. We had to tell him that we owed him money, so I think the billing was totally a mistake and they will correct it.

An Answer for "Mary Hogan": We're truly sorry that you didn't have a better experience when you visited. Although it's not always easy to hear the negative, it can help us to improve the experience for our guests. It would also have been helpful if you had chosen to talk to us as well while you were here. It seems you were mistaken about a number of things which could have been clarified at the time. We agree entirely that readers deserve to hear about the pros and cons. They also deserve to hear the truth. Property owners do not have the ability to remove or alter posts, good or bad. Nor do they have the power to make the ultimate decision regarding which posts stay and which are removed. Your post was removed not by us but by Tripadvisor. And not because it was negative but because Tripadvisor thought it was inappropriate. We would be happy to discuss your stay with you in more detail. Please feel free to email us personally.
