We had a great 2 night stay at the Cornell Inn. Our room in the Carriage House was cozy but not too small, very clean – complete with wood burning fireplace. Nice grounds for a quick morning stretch & located just ½ mile from the town's center. Breakfast served each morning – eggs to order, potatoes, homemade muffins, cereal, granola...

We had a great 2 day stay at the Cornell Inn. From the moment we arrived, Tim and his staff made us feel very warmly welcomed. Our room in the Carriage House was spacious and comfortable. The grounds were very nice with plenty of outdoor seating and covered porches with Adirondack chairs. Breakfast was great with a lot of variety...

Stayed a couple of nights at the end of April. Comfortable and quite adequate. On the main road but set nicely in its gardens, the three houses used by the place spread folks mean you are not necessarily near the kitchen or your friends. It felt a little less personal than most, more like s business. They had a tip...

Thank you for staying with us and for your feedback. We enjoyed hosting your group for the weekend and we are glad you enjoyed our grounds.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Cornell Inn. The Innkeeper Tim is welcoming, friendly and gracious. The room (Jackie) was clean and quaint with a very comfortable bed. We had a small private ground floor deck. It was perfect. The staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were delicious. I would highly recommend this B and B and would definitely...

Nell and Tim were wonderful hosts! Our room was nicely appointed and very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and the frittata was the best we've ever had. The location is conveniently close to the center of Lenox, and there was ample parking. Book with confidence!

Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Quick confession: Innkeeper Tim McCaffery unintentionally bribed two first-time guests when he grabbed ALL of our luggage and escorted us to our cozy queen room on the second floor. Then casually mentioned the king suite next door at the back of the main house was vacant. Would we want to switch rooms with no cost increase? You bet! The Cornell...

My girlfriend and I booked the Truman Suite and this was ideal for two women traveling together. We each had our own sleeping space and bath but were connected by a small hallway. Perfect for using one of the rooms in the evening for sipping wine and knitting. Beds were very comfortable, shower was hot, the full breakfast each morning...
