Named for an ancestor who, at 13 years of age, fought at the Battle of Lexington, the Nathaniel Porter Inn recalls all
the charm, beauty, and gracious hospitality of an earlier day. The Inn was built by a sea captain in 1795, when fast American sailing ships brought exotic cargoes home from the Orient, Europe, and the Mediterranean, and the craftsman’s skill created homes designed to delight the eye and last an eternity. The tang of salt air still lingers in Warren, and the authentically restored rooms of the Nathaniel Porter Inn provide our guests with a welcome return to that gracious period in America’s past. The Nathaniel Porter Inn combines the convenience and comfort of today with the unique charm of the past. — It is traditional New England at its very best!
