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...

The Porches Inn is a very modern establishment, very clean and well run, friendly helpful staff, nice casual bar for a nightcap. We were in the grey house, first floor. Downside, and only a minor point, no coffee or tea facilities in the room, breakfast is a self service buffet but good enough. Only ten easy minutes walk from restaurants.
