Massachusetts' Odd Inns and Unusual Places to Stay

Massachusetts' Odd Inns  -  Lighthouses, Jails and Haunted Inns        

Liberty Hotel alias the Charles Street Jail

Converted Jail: Liberty Hotel - Boston, Massachusetts
Once the storied Charles Street Jail, The Liberty Hotel welcomes guests to Boston with the spirit of a landmark liberated following an extensive $150 million acquisition, renovation and construction process. Marrying historic architecture with the high standards of refined, modern travel, The Liberty Hotel is New England’s premier luxury destination. Today, through meticulous planning reflective of the property’s colorful past, this strong and beautiful building is home to a variety of transcendent public spaces linked by historic catwalks – including lobby and reception areas, restaurant, bar, grand ballroom, and meeting rooms – as well as a limited number of guestrooms. Among the other dramatic features that have been preserved are vestiges of jail cells within the hotel lobby bar and magnificent, oversize windows. A new, adjoining 16-story tower houses the majority of guestrooms with every modern convenience.

Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast

Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast - Fall River, MA
The Lizzie Home is a Greek Revival House which has been a city landmark since the infamous ax murders of Andrew and his second wife Abby Borden on August 4, 1892. Erected in 1845 the home was originally a two family and was later made into a single family by Andrew J. Borden. Andrew J. Borden bought the house at 92 Second Street to be close to his bank and various downtown businesses. The Bed & Breakfast is named after Andrew J. Borden’s youngest daughter, Lizzie. Although she was tried and acquitted of the crimes she was ostracized by the community of Fall River.Since the murders on August 4, 1892 the house has been a private residence. Now for the first time the public is allowed not only to view the murder scene, but is given an opportunity to spend a night (if you dare) in the actual house where the murders took place.   Complete Story


Race Point Lighthouse

Race Point Lighthouse - Cape Cod, Massachusetts
Race Point Light is located approximately 2.5 miles from the heart of Provincetown, at the northwestern tip of the Cape. Due to the large number of shipwrecks in the area, Race Point Light was constructed in 1816 - the first of the three lighthouses in Provincetown. As in the Long Point area, a small settlement based upon fishing and saltworks emerged - dubbed "Helltown" by the locals. The settlement lasted until the later half of the 19th century. In 1995, Race Point Light was leased to the New England Lighthouse Foundation, and the keepers house repaired and modernized with heat, hot water, flush toilets, refrigeration, and a gas stove. Overnight stays were initiated in 1998.   The restored whistle house was opened to guests for week-long stays in 2008. Complete Story and Photos


Wings Neck Lighthouse

Wings Neck Lighthouse Accommodations - Bourne, MA
The Lighthouse sits at the very tip of Wings Neck Point in the town of Pocasset, city of Bourne - approximately 1 hour from downtown Boston. A private gate makes the property available only to residents and their guests. The house has spectacular water views from every window in every room.

The property faces West and enjoys a rare view of the sunset over the water nightly. There are sleeping accommodations for eight. The house has three upstairs bedrooms (1 King, two twin sets) and a pullout Queen sofa in the family room. There is a full bath upstairs, a half-bath downstairs and an outdoor shower.
