Hotels

We recommend Googling “hotels in Stockbridge, MA” first, as that will give you a map of all the hotels within 10-15 minutes, regardless of which town they are in. We suggest that pilgrims CALL the hotel of their choice before booking online, and ask if they offer a discount for those visiting the Shrine, as many do. It may (or may not) be better than any rate you can get online.
