My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the two nights we spent at the Cornell Inn. It's the quintessential New England inn with charming rooms decorated in vintage prints and antique furniture, yet with all the comforts one would expect including flat screen TVs, pressed linens and many with wood-burning fireplaces and porches. Free Wi-Fi too! The location is perfect, within... More

We spent two nights at Cornell Inn and got a lovely room with a fireplace. The bed was comfortable (maybe a bit too soft for my liking but I'm very picky about my mattress) and the room was spacious. Breakfast was delicious with a focus on seasonal products (we had scrumptious apple cider pancakes), and even though there were many... More

The Cornell Inn is a quiet, lovely place to use as a base for a weekend in Lenox and surroundings. It is less an a quarter mile walk into town, so you can leave your car and walk off your dinner, then return to the small room, but one with all the "necessaries": a small bathroom, flat-screen TV, comfortable bed,...

We stayed for two nights at this lovely bed and breakfast. The room was cozy and comfortable, we felt very well taken care of and the breakfasts were delish! The location was good, very close to downtown Lenox restaurants and Kennedy park. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Very gracious, amenable innkeeper (Tim) The inn is huge (28 rooms) but doesn't appear so, since it consists of 3 structures on beautifully landscaped grounds, just up the road from Lenox center. The rooms themselves are immaculate and tastefully done, with fireplaces in many. Mattress was fantastic. Breakfast was decent. They will make you what you wish (if they can)... More
