The atmosphere at the inn represents that: while accommodations provide all of the conveniences of modern living, like free wifi, air conditioning, and Bluetooth speakers, there’s a feeling of familiarity and community at the Inn.

The inn is set right in the heart of Grafton, giving guests access to a wide variety of activities, including nature trails, shopping, and farm-to-table dining.

The Grafton Inn is on the National Register of Historic Places, which limits its ability to be fully accessible due to physical barriers unable to be removed. However, the Inn has taken steps to increase accessibility, including ADA-accessible rooms in the Homestead and Windham Cottages, elevator access to 2nd and 3rd-floor rooms, handicap-accessible parking, and wheelchair access to the Main Inn’s restaurant and Phelps Barn Pub.
The inn’s staff is knowledgeable in assisting with accessibility questions, so people with concerns should call directly for more information.
Vegans, vegetarians, and gluten-free guests have options for dining, and the restaurant has clear labeling on the menu for dietary restrictions. However, they don’t have dedicated fryers, so guests with coeliac disease should take extra precautions.
The Inn does not have a shuttle to nearby mountains and is not on any local shuttle routes, so guests should be prepared to drive. Several peaks are within less than an hour, including Magic Mountain (25 minutes), Okemo (35 minutes), and Mount Snow (40 minutes).
Compare vs Nearby Okemo Lodging
Grafton Inn vs 506 On the River Inn
Guests looking for accommodations in small, picturesque New England towns will likely look at Grafton Inn and 506 On the River Inn as options. Both are located at similar distances from local ski mountains – around 25-45 minutes – and both are set in small historic areas. However, the hotels differ in their overall atmosphere: 506 On the River Inn is slightly more tailored to families, with amenities like an “explorer corner” for kids and a toddler playroom, whereas Grafton Inn is liked by couples.
Grafton Inn vs Fullerton Inn
Like 506 On the River Inn, Grafton Inn and Fullerton Inn are both small, cozy inns located in historic towns with similar distances to the slopes. Their main differences are in amenities: guests will find more options for things to do at Grafton than at Fullerton, with the Grafton Inn having a fitness center, game room, restaurant, and complimentary breakfast, whereas the Fullerton Inn only has a restaurant. Rooms at Fullerton Inn also may feel slightly more dated, as it’s a smaller and older Inn than Grafton.
Grafton Inn vs Mountain Lodge at Okemo
Very different options: Grafton Inn and the Mountain Lodge at Okemo are both hotels near Okemo, but the similarities stop there. The Mountain Lodge at Okemo is a ski-in/ski-out option located right at the base of Okemo, whereas Grafton Inn is a 35-minute drive away from the mountain. The lodge also only offers 1-bedroom units with a full kitchen, while Grafton Inn only has a few guest houses with kitchens. However, Grafton Inn is situated in a small town and has more of a local feel, so it may be better suited to guests who aren’t centering their trip around skiing or are looking for a less touristy atmosphere.
