Red Lion Inn, Stockbridge
The world is full of verandas and breezeways and front stoops, but there’s hardly a front porch comparable to that on the old-fashioned Red Lion Inn. An army of rocking chairs stands sentinel behind columns, guaranteeing that no activity on Main Street goes unnoticed or unremarked. To sit and rock at the Red Lion is to understand precisely how Norman Rockwell saw Stockbridge. Rates: from $150. 30 Main St. 413-298-5545;

Publick House Historic Inn, Sturbridge
Versatility is the key at the Publick House. Rooms in the 1771 inn, furnished in antique style, offer a wealth of Colonial ambience for travelers coming to town for the Brimfield antiques shows. The motel out back, on the other hand, provides more space at lower cost for families visiting Old Sturbridge Village. Rates: from $125. 277 Main St. 800-782-5425, 508-347-3313;

Hob Knob, Edgartown
This 17-room hotel tucked into a 19th-century Gothic Revival home has both the luxury (high-thread-count linens, Vineyard styling, organic breakfast food) and the green touches (nontoxic cleaning products, bath and beauty products made with wind energy) to stake a simultaneous claim to ecological stewardship and sheer comfort. Think of it as Jay Gatsby meets Al Gore. Rates: from $395 in season, $125 off season, including full breakfast. 128 Main St. 800-696-2723, 508-627-9510;
