CONCORD, MASSACHUSETTS PROPERTY EST. 1716 Dating to 1716, this enduring landmark of gracious hospitality has operated as a hotel since 1889. Nestled in a quaint New England village famed for its revolutionary and literary roots, Concord’s Colonial Inn has more than its share of history. During the Revolutionary War, one of the Inn’s original buildings stored arms and provisions for the Concord Minutemen. Later, Henry David Thoreau would take up residence with family while attending Harvard. In 2014, the Inn completed renovations of the public spaces, as well as guestrooms in the Prescott Wing and Main Inn. While the renovations have added a modern touch to the hotel and restaurants, the Inn’s original buildings and fixtures provide unmatched historic ambience and charm. Guestroom 24 in the Main Inn is famous for ghost sightings of a woman with long braids floating through the room. CONVERTED INN CHARMING SERVICE TRADITIONAL DÉCOR FEDERAL AMENITIES 56 newly remodeled guestrooms comprised of the Historic Wing, the modernized Prescott Wing and two off-site buildings offering suites. Each room is equipped to accommodate the modern guest, complete with complimentary wireless Internet access, flat-screen Tvs, in-room climate control and refashioned en-suite bathrooms. Suites include kitchennettes and living areas. DINING The Inn offers five unique dining spaces: Merchants Row, Liberty, the Tap Room, the Village Forge Tavern, and seasonal patio dining. The only thing better than the food, is the rich history. The Tap Room was originally Concord’s “gentlemen only” bar and still holds its original charm and detail. The Tavern was a storeroom for supplies during the Revolution. Every Sunday, Merchants Row hosts the largest Sunday Brunch in the area.
