TripAdvisor Rating


Opened in 1801, the historic Grafton Inn has hosted everyone from Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau to Woodrow Wilson and Ulysses S. Grant. In fact, you can see a full list of the hotel’s famous guests in the lobby, where a cozy fireplace and sitting area invite families to relax. The intimate property offers 45 guestrooms that include units with two double beds for families. Four vacation rentals are also available for those wanting full kitchens and more space. All rooms are equipped with free Wi-Fi, though it may be spotty – Grafton is a small town that’s off the beaten path (and that’s half the charm).

Unplugged hotel perks include a game room with a pool table and Ping-Pong; tennis courts; and outdoor activities – including pond swimming — at Grafton Ponds Outdoor Center. Other hotel perks include morning coffee service, afternoon cookies and two onsite dining options: the Old Tavern Restaurant and the Phelps Barn Pub. Both are family-friendly, but we especially love the pub for its cozy ambiance and live entertainment on select evenings. Be sure to check out the hotel’s seasonal packages!

Historic New England Inns

It's a great place to spend the night. It's off the beaten path in the country. Quiet and peaceful. Old New England charm and on our bucket list of the 6 Historic New England Inns. Comfortable and charming.

Relaxing long Labor Day weekend

by Melinda F

We had a very nice stay. Very relaxing accommodations with a expansive front porch with rocking chairs, and many common areas for playing games, enjoying a cocktail, reading. Extremely quiet town with enough offerings, including hiking, mountain biking, paddle boards, swimming hole, and town walking tour. Food was excellent, from the early morning coffee and muffins, to the afternoon snack of local cheese, crackers, and cookies. Country breakfast every morning was a special treat. The on-site Phelps Barn did not disappoint with a great menu of bar food and selection of craft cocktails and wine.
