Massachusetts inns and B&Bs offer luxury by the sea and in trhe mountains

Are you interesting in staying at an inn or bed & breakfast for your Massachusetts vacation, but overwhelmed by all the choices? The diversity of Massachusetts is on display in the type of inn you may choose for a romantic getaway or family vacation. Cape Cod inns may be located near beaches or tucked into compact little towns with beaches a short drive away. Cozy inns with antique furnishings and Continental breakfasts dot the coast of Cape Ann on the North Shore. Historic inns are great for family adventure; in Plymouth, for instance, one inn offers a wild indoor theme pool.
Boston may tuck its fine inns into old brownstones in historic neighborhoods close to shopping, museums, and nightlife -- a wonderful place for a romantic weekend getaway in winter. Winter brings out activity at fireplaces and spas and on ski slopes at inns in the mountains of the Berkshires. Pick the region of Massachusetts that stirs your heart, and there will be a waterfront, city, or country inn to pamper you there.
