The Porches Inn

I'm dying for a weekend at the utterly cool Porches Inn in western Mass. When the Massachusettus Museum of Contemporary Art was built in a 19th century mill complex in North Adams, a nearby set of Victorian row houses were converted into this unique hotel. The 47-room inn, self-described as "retro edgy with industrial granny chic", is a great combination of re-development, revitalization, art, and style. The fact that it's tied to Mass MoCA is very cool, but the inn also includes thoughtful amenities like a bonfire pit, pool, and hiking trails in the surrounding Berkshires.
