“Dinner doesn’t get any more romantic than by candlelight, except when the entire room is lighted by them. That’s what we found when we stepped into the dining room at The Old Inn on the Green, in New Marlborough, Massachusetts.
The inn dates from the 1760s, when it was a coaching stop, and has retained that warmth and charm, while adding the modern amenities today’s travelers expect. Our room, for example, had a giant Jacuzzi tub and a superbly comfortable king-sized bed, along with its original fireplace (and a box of wood so we could enjoy its cozy warm glow after dinner). The room featured many other antique touches, including wide-board floors and a wall paneled in old boards nearly two feet wide.”
