|Luxurious and Funky Accomodations|
We chose North Adams, Massachusetts for our getaway this year because of its proximity to our Albany, NY hub and because most of us had not yet been to MassMoca, a great contemporary art museum that has exhibitions of incredible, huge sculptures and installations.

The Porches is a historic hotel consisting of several adjacent rooming houses that were home to textile mill workers in the 19th century. The hotel is funky and decorated with interesting artwork and is walking distance to downtown North Adams and its many shops and restaurants. It is right next to MassMoca, which consists of many of these cavernous old factory spaces.

Ladies Weekend Essentials
It was a wonderful overnight stay, but to top things off, I was pleasantly surprised the next morning when I stumbled into the breakfast room for a (series of great cups of) coffee and saw that there were many gluten-free things to eat, including granola, breakfast cereals, hardboiled eggs and bread. While none of the "Ladies" were gluten-free, I was pleased to see that if I want to spend a romantic getaway weekend with the celiac husband, we will both be wonderfully housed and fed.
