Built in 1734, Amerscot House Inn is a center chimney colonial home, one of several from that era that remain in Stow today. Documents record all the owners of the property from Deliverance Wheeler, who bought the land in 1734, up until the present day. The original owners paid for the land and house in £'s sterling - as their purchases pre-dated independence from Britain and the US Dollar! Stow is amongst the earliest of the colonial towns and was first settled in 1660. Minutemen from the town marched to nearby Concord on April 19th, 1775 in response to the British attack that sparked the Revolutionary War.
The house has been lovingly restored and extended. The spacious rooms are painted in cool, fresh colors, furnished with antique furniture and display original artwork. The 18th century wide pine floorboards remain, as do the fireplaces, staircase and all the historic features that make the house so special. What has been added are amenities essential in the 21st century - efficient heating and air conditioned cooling, bathrooms with plentiful hot water, the finest linens, towels and toiletries, flat-screen cable TV/DVDs, complimentary Wi-Fi, guest computer and printer, toweling robes…and so on.
There are extensive common areas for guests to enjoy - the Sitting Room, the Screened Porch, the Conservatory and, of course, the nearly 3 acres of grounds. So, pick your spot, find your favorite seat and relax with a cup of tea or coffee, or maybe a glass of wine or a beer. While you are our guest, Amerscot House Inn is your home!
