NORTH ADAMS, MASSACHUSETTS PROPERTY EST. 1880 Comprised of six Victorian rowhouses, The Porches Inn at MASS MoCA honors the spirit of the mill workers who lived in and labored there for decades. In the late 1990s, the forgotten mill town in the scenic Berkshire Mountains became a haven for technology firms, which infused the sleepy community with new life; the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art renovated the sprawling mill complex. Today, Porches represents a new twist on hospitality. Its use of bold color and simple design elements appeals to weekend escapists and business travelers alike. Travel + Leisure describes Porches as “earnestly homey and at home with irony.” It is recommended by National Geographic Traveler, The New York Times, and The Boston Globe. The Inn is named for the long verandas that link the buildings, on which many notable artists and musicians have enjoyed Porches’ hospitality.
