Concord’s Colonial Inn

For a true historic experience, you’ll want to book a room at Concord’s Colonial Inn in Concord, MA. Its rich history dates back to 1716, with much of the architecture and furnishings being original or reminiscent of colonial times. The 54 unique guest rooms marry original wide-plank pine floors and four-poster beds with flat-screen TVs and modern bathrooms.

The rooms aren’t the only historical part of Concord’s Colonial Inn. One of their on-site restaurants, Liberty, had been a storeroom for supplies during the Revolutionary War!

North Bridge Inn

North Bridge Inn B&B in Concord, Massachusetts was first built in 1885 and has maintained that aesthetic for over a century. It’s an intimate inn with 6 spacious suites, each featuring a tiled bath and kitchen. It feels like a cozy cottage within but still has modern conveniences like high-speed WiFi.

It’s one of the most popular bed and breakfasts in the area due to its historic charm, modern amenities, and the fact that it’s within walking distance of many of Concord’s historic sites, so it’s perfect for a history buff who wants to explore the town. 

The Inn at Hastings Park

If you’re planning a stay in historic Lexington, MA, The Inn at Hastings Park is the perfect place to book your stay. It consists of three historic buildings, the oldest of which having been built in 1888. The Main House was even home to a descendant of one of Lexington’s first families who settled in the town in the 1600s.

A stay at this inn is truly a treat for anyone staying in Lexington. The rooms are timeless and comfortable, with some even featuring sitting areas and fireplaces. You’ll experience luxury and style while being right in the heart of the town, with easy access to the historical sites and attractions like the Lexington Battle Green.

Andover Inn

Andover Inn in Andover, MA might be the “youngest” hotel on this list, having been built in 1930, but it’s still a beautiful, historic building. It sits on the 500 acre campus of Phillips Academy, which is one of the oldest private secondary boarding schools in the U.S., and maintains that stately feel on the outside even if the inside was renovated in 2010.

Because of the renovations, the interior is fairly modern, though the 30 private rooms and suites still maintain the quintessential New England charm. Each room features complimentary Wi-Fi, flat screen HDTVs, pillow top mattresses, a Keurig® coffee maker, and more, so you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for history. However, when you step outside, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time as you’re surrounded by the classic brick buildings of the Phillips Academy campus.

A vacation getaway becomes so much more memorable when you book your stay in one of Merrimack’s historic inns. Whether you love history or simply wish to enjoy a little luxury, you’ll love the amenities and decor of these old-world inns.
