Have been luckily enough to stay at The Porches a few times through business and pleasure. I have always been treated excellently. The staff are amazing and always willing to help with a smile on their face. The hotel is quirky but extremely comfortable, in fact one of the most comfortable places I have ever stayed. The pool and jacuzzi...

A comfortable, cozy, friendly, casual spot for a getaway. A restored block of houses directly across the street from Mass MoCA. Comfy lobby/common area with fireplace and adorable cat. We enjoyed a stay in the blue building (there are 6 or 8, not sure how many, ID'd by different exterior color), in #22, a 2nd-floor suite facing the street, with...

Porches is really very comfortable and quirky, and the staff were lovely. There is a nice lobby with a bar, and everyone who worked there was extremely friendly. However, it occupies a funny space between impersonal hotel and personal B & B. My husband and I went away for the weekend there this fall. The room was comfortable, and the...

Dear T R, Thank you for taking the time to review the Porches Inn at MASS MoCA. We try to strike a balance between family-friendly and romantic, but, on holiday weekends and during school vacations, the scales probably tip toward the first; our heated outdoor pool, chocolate-chip cookies, fire pit, s'mores and board-game collection are a big draw for the...

After the election, my friend and I needed beauty and respite in the Berkshires. We found what we were looking for in North Adams at The Porches. Very special, pretty inn/hotel just across from MassMoCa. Clean, quirky, with big bathroom and amazingly comfy bed.And they have fresh chocolate croissants at breakfast.

Had a very pleasant 2-night stay at this B&B. Stayed in one of their 2-BR suites which consists of small parlor, bedroom and bath on one floor and bedroom and bath in a loft reached by circular stair. The buildings were originally built for mill workers, and so are not luxurious. But, they have been loving converted to preserve some...
