Much has been written about the incomparable restaurant at the Old Inn On The Green, skillfully operated by proprietor and Star Chef Peter Platt. The superb wine program is effectively run by hands-on Wine Director, James Stahl. It’s easy to hop on the bandwagon. The food is great. The ambiance is ‘New England Romantic’ and the wait staff is efficient, courteous and knowledgeable.
Living a few miles away from this haven, located on Route 57 in New Marlborough, Massachusetts, the Old Inn On The Green has been a true destination for thousands of year round visitors.
The Inn is off the beaten path, yet, close enough to take in the local seasonal activities: Tanglewood, Jacob’s Pillow, Berkshire Theater Festival, Butternut and Catamount ski areas, Mount Greylock, the highest mountain in Massachusetts and the Norman Rockwell Museum, jus to name a few highlights of this cultural mecca called the Berkshires.
There are five guest bedrooms at the Inn. All rooms have been restored with authenticity, antiques, country furniture and that special New England flair. Some rooms have fireplaces, others have balconies.
Next store is the Thayer House, which is part of the Old Inn. Six guest bedrooms, all air-conditioned are housed in the building that has two large living rooms, a country library and a swimming pool.
Each room has a magnificent view of the bucolic countryside.
The Inn dates back to 1760 and was a stagecoach relay station in its heyday. .
In 2013, Yankee magazine rated the Old Inn On The Green as ‘The Best of the Oldest, No.1 Historic Inn. New England’.
With such a pedigree, the Inn can only dazzle you with its affordable rates of $260-$360 in high season plus specially priced room and meal packages in addition to the world class restaurant ($40 prix fixe menu on certain nights).
If you want to enjoy New England’s history in a historic setting, then the Old Inn On The Green is for you.
