Penrose Victorian Inn
133 Main Street
The Penrose Bed & Breakfast Inn is located in the scenic Pioneer Valley, minutes west of Northampton Massachusetts. The village of Haydenville is at the foot of the Hampshire Hilltowns; gateway to the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts. Penrose Bed & Breakfast Inn is known for Victorian elegance, and was selected for a national Christmas television special with the Mark Twain House. Locals refer to the Inn as “The Painted Lady”. It was Wilbur And Eleanor Purringtonwho had the Victorian vision to lift up the entire house to create first floor accommodations with high, stately ceilings in 1900. Showered in Victorian details and carefully chosen paintings and antique pieces, the parlor’s elegance remains the same as it did back then. The magnificent fireplace is set off by tall Corinthian columns featuring ornate ram’s head capitals.
