America’s oldest inn, The Old Groton Inn began as a single structure built in 1678. During the Revolutionary War, its tavern served as a gathering place for the “Minute Men” to meet and strategize. In fact, the Inn once served as a meeting place of St Paul’s Masonic Lodge, of which Paul Revere was the Grand Master. In 1967, having fallen into disrepair, it was purchased by long-time residents of the town who revitalized the property and registered the Inn with the National Register for Historic Places.
After a fire destroyed the original structure in 2011, the inn has been meticulously re-imagined as a new 60-room boutique hotel – one that echoes the legacy of three centuries of gracious hospitality while featuring modern amenities and world class service. Guests enjoy the charming town of Groton with its historic attractions, beautiful rural landscapes, and stunning views. Offering easy proximity to nearby technology hubs, corporations, cultural institutions, and outdoor recreation, the Inn welcomes local residents, business and leisure travelers, as well as parents, faculty, and alumni of the nearby Groton School and Lawrence Academy.
