Museum groups, mountain bike clubs and writers’ workshops will all find Porches to be a welcoming retreat. Located in the center of the northern Berkshire region, Porches is the perfect home base for exploring all the region has to offer—from the challenging trails of Mount Greylock, the highest peak in Massachusetts, to the Impressionist gallery at the Clark Art Institute. We would be glad to help you arrange a visit to one of the many museums or theaters or arrange a group luncheon in our woodland garden. We are here to help you discover why the Berkshires offers the perfect mix of nature, culture and the serenity of our verdant hills.


The Board Room, located in the Reception Building, features old-fashioned black board walls, and can accommodate up to 18 people for a banquet (30 for a reception).

Building 7, located just behind the reception building, features a spacious room with a twenty foot ceiling and state-of-the-art media system and can accommodate up to 40 people for a banquet (60 for a reception).

The Breakfast Room, located in the Reception Building, offers a spacious room adjacent to the front porch and full of natural light – and can accommodate up to 24 people for a banquet (35 people for a reception).

The Wedding Glen, situated at the top of the hill behind Porches, is an outdoor deck located in the midst of our native woodland garden – a great place for a wedding ceremony, group yoga session or reunion picnic.

The Woodland Gazebo is a nifty little “clubhouse” that we built at the top of our woodland garden – and it’s wired for electricity and WiFi, making this the perfect HQ for that party in the woods you’ve always wanted to throw!
