UPDATE

We love welcoming, it’s our favorite thing - bringing people together to celebrate, eat, lounge, howl at the moon, create, dance, commune with nature, revel in our humanity. Unfortunately, collective adventure and social gathering have suddenly been made unadvisable.

While we pride ourselves on being a genuine escape from a chaotic world, this situation seems, for the moment, inescapable. As such, we will be temporarily suspending stays at TOURISTS until we’re certain it’s safe out there for our guests, staff, and community. If you have reservations for a stay or event between now and April 7, a member of our team will be in touch this week.

The TOURISTS experience only exists thanks to the work and spirit of our dedicated staff. While we won’t have guests for a little while, we are committed to keeping our team employed and, where prudent and responsible, keeping them active – cutting new trails on the property, getting out the deck furniture, doing some spring planting, and creating surprises for when we’re able to welcome you back.

This is a big shake of the cosmic Etch-A-Sketch for all of us, but please remember that we love you and remain so grateful for your patronage. We’ll be together again soon enough and it will be all the sweeter and more precious. Let’s take good care of ourselves and each other and be ready.

“On soft spring nights I'll stand in the yard under the stars - Something good will come out of all things yet - And it will be golden and eternal just like that - There's no need to say another word.”

– Jack Kerouac, Big Sur


TOURISTS is a hotel and riverside retreat inspired by the classic American roadside motor lodge, set on the banks of the Hoosic River in the Berkshires city of North Adams. Designed for the 21st century traveler, the 48-room property is a union of design and nature, home to woodland trails, riverbank vistas, sculptural installations and more. Using common, organic materials, your room is both haven and trailhead, connecting you with your vacation self and serving as a basecamp for exploration and adventure.
