Historic 18th-Century Inn with Candlelit Restaurant

The Old Inn on the Green, with its whitewashed clapboard façade and front porches overlooking sweeping meadows, was named one of New England's Best Historic Inns by Yankee Magazine in 2011. Once a stagecoach relay, the main building has occupied its quiet spot in the Berkshire Hills since 1760. Honey-colored wooden floorboards, antiques, and period pieces nod to the building’s early days. More recent upgrades have included the addition of an intimate restaurant, which earned a Best in the Berkshires rating from Zagat and was called "one of the finest dining destinations in the area" by Travel + Leisure.

Eleven bedrooms are available between the main building and the separate Thayer House, and all of them have been faithfully restored. The Thayer House contains a little library and two large shared living rooms. The décor varies from room to room—many have fireplaces and some have claw-foot tubs, but all feature authentic antiques arranged to evoke the 1800s.

Candles and brick-lined fireplaces are the only sources of light in the dining room, where the chef prepares seasonal American fare using ingredients procured from area farmers. In a dinner for two served at the on-site restaurant, you might enjoy dishes such as slow-braised Angus short ribs and seared Maine diver scallops. In the morning, cooks craft omelets made from local barnyard eggs and Vermont cob-smoked ham served alongside buttermilk pancakes sweetened by local maple syrup, while lunch is served at The Southfield Store.

New Marlborough, Massachusetts: Cultural History in the Midst of the Berkshire Hills

New Marlborough is a peaceful, rural town in the lower Berkshire Hills about 10 miles from Great Barrington and 120 miles from Boston. It’s surrounded on all sides by state forests—including Beartown and Sandisfield—which feature hiking trails and lakes full of fish.

This area has served as a place of peaceful solitude for some famous artists and writers. It’s worth checking out Herman Melville's Arrowhead, the home where he penned Moby Dick. Melville's study, piazza, and original fireplace are on display, as is the barn where he and The Scarlet Letter author Nathaniel Hawthorne met to discuss their writings and a shared love for Doritos. In nearby Stockbridge, the Norman Rockwell Museum displays a massive collection of paintings and drawings from the famous Saturday Evening Post artist, including the well-known Christmas Homecoming and Girl Reading the Post.

Customer Reviews

the quiet location and the uniquely decorated rooms.
Marianne M. · September 11, 2014
Everything was great! The restaurant is fabulous and the accommodations were very comfortable
Sara K. · October 1, 2013
It is located in a lovely part of western Mass. The room was very comfortable and we had access to the porch from our room. It was great to sit out there and enjoy the serene surroundings. Breakfast was a feast with fresh fruit and homemade croissants, cinnamon rolls, muffins, and scones. Dinners were delicious and very enjoyable in the screen room dining area. Delightful place, I look forward to another getaway.
