Berkshires and Pioneer Valley welcome guests to rest in the lap of history

As the home state of Plymouth Rock and several critical sites of the American Revolution, Massachusetts is arguably among the most historic places in the United States. Historic hotels and other historic lodgings are numerous in MA, including the Berkshires towns of Great Barrington, Stockbridge, Lee, and Lenox, and the Connecticut River Valley towns of Springfield, West Springfield, Northampton, and Amherst. Many of these Colonial-era or 18th- and 19th-century hotels and inns boast period furnishings and owners who are more than happy to discuss the period with visitors. Most historic lodgings also are near locations of early gatherings and battles that helped form the United States.

Rich heritage and vibrant modern sensibilities make this boutique hotel a must when visiting the Berkshires

At the Hotel on North, they say that whispers of the past echo through the corridors. The hotel, a combination of two 19th-century buildings that used to house the legendary menswear and sporting goods emporium Besse-Clark©, honors its heritage with a birdcage elevator where you can sip cocktails, exposed brick walls that date back to the 1880s, tin ceilings, decorative columns and a few charming quirks you won’t find in modern buildings. Each of its 45 rooms is unique, featuring artwork and furnishings that reflect the work of Berkshire artists and artisans. Modern amenities include day passes to next door’s fitness center, lockers for ski equipment, delightful lounge areas and the popular Berkshire Palate restaurant, serving creative dishes for lunch and dinner.

Tradition of warm hospitality still greets visitors to this charming 24-room inn, built in 1884

When the Deerfield Inn opened its doors to guests in 1884, they came by stagecoach, carriage and horseback to enjoy the inn’s warm hospitality. Today, that tradition continues, with uniquely appointed rooms, most with period reproduction furniture and antiques, hearty meals served by a crackling fire in Champney’s restaurant and tavern, and a comfortable front porch with a ceiling still painted robin’s egg blue. The original hayloft door is still at the inn, the horse weathercock still turns and floors in the main inn still offer unexpected turns. Stroll down Main Street past gorgeous 18th- and 19th-century houses or get up close and personal to the historic town’s roots at the Flynt Center of Early American Life or Memorial Hall Museum.
