With a double porch that serves as Grafton’s most picturesque landmark, this venerable inn has played host to such notable guests as Rudyard Kipling, Theodore Roosevelt and Ralph Waldo Emerson. While the original brick inn is quite formal, many of the 47 guest rooms and suites – scattered around houses within the village – are less so.
The inn has tennis courts, a sand-bottomed swimming pond and cross-country skiing trails. The dining room is New England formal and the cuisine is refined New American with a seasonal menu, while fare at the nearby cafe is lighter and more casual.
Guests staying at the Grafton Inn can also enjoy swimming in the pond, exercising in the fitness centre and playing on the tennis courts. There is also an on-site bar.
The Grafton Inn has in-room amenities like an iPod docking station. Each room has an en suite bathroom.
Grafton Village Park is 2 minutes’ drive from the inn. Grafton Town Forest is less than 2 miles away.
