We stayed here on a summer weekend. Our room, the Rachel, was pretty small, though cute and quaint, and the bed was comfy. It had a mini-fridge, as some but not all, of their rooms do. The Inn itself is three separate buildings; ours was in the MacDonald building, which is very close to the main building. The Inn has... More

This was my second visit to the Cornell Inn. Previously I visited in December and decided to return based on the hospitality of the hosts and the property's superb location in Lenox. The hosts - Tim and Nora could not have been more welcoming. The breakfast was special and our friends from Toronto really enjoyed themselves and are looking to... More

This three building B&B is an extremely welcoming place to spend time in the Beekshires. Wonderful breakfasts with many choices, both sweet and savory. Even an onsite pub for predinner drinks or evening libation. Minutes from the heart of Lenox and a short drive to the many other museums, theaters, wonderful craft shops that fill the area. Excellent value,even during... More

Though our room was small, the inn generally was a delight: it provided an excellent, full breakfast (with a huge variety of options) which we ate in beautiful garden featuring a waterfall and a lily pond. The facility was immaculately clean and the staff friendly and helpful. For music lovers, Tanglewood is a short drive away. For nature lovers, a... More

Thank you for your kind review, we're glad you enjoyed your time wit h us while visiting the Berkshires and enjoying Tanglewood a mere hop skip and a jump away. Being that we have 3 houses with 28 rooms, you are correct in that some of our rooms are larger/smaller than others. Because of this some of our smaller rooms... More

Cornell Inn can be described as all around wonderful. The owners are very friendly and very involved. The place is made up of a few separate buildings around an adorably small viewing pond with some deck space. Breakfast was included buffet style and was pretty good, not very extensive but tasty and the staff was willing to take orders. The... More

Owners Tim & Nell McCaffrey have thought of everything to make your stay most enjoyable. I could not think of one thing that I needed that wasn't already right there. The breakfast is sumptuous. The facility (including the grounds) is immaculate. The gardens beckon one to sit back and relax. All in all, a most enjoyable stay. I would recommend... More

How can you beat breakfast on the deck alongside a waterfall flowing into a pond filled with fish and surrounded by shrubs and flowers. A wonderful setting on Main St only a 5-10 minute walk from the Lenox town center. Clean comfortable room with excellent service, breakfast and general hospitality.

This was our second visit to the Cornell Inn in Lenox, but it won't be our last. We really enjoyed staying there again. It is a relaxed and comfortable place in a great location.

Thank you for kind review. I'm so glad you had a nice stay with us. You are correct in that our breakfasts are so darn tasty, many people, including myself, eat far too much during breakfast. Fortunately, I love to run and we have the lovely Kennedy Park Nature Preserve right behind our Inn where folks can escape into nature... More

Cornell Inn is an attractive historic building on a large, pleasant lot, with deck and garden areas. I was there during a very warm period, but the deck by the pond and waterfall was a relaxing and cool place to eat a very tasty breakfast before heading out. My father had to leave before the normal breakfast service, and the... More

Tim and Nell have a perfect little gem perfectly located in the Berkshires. Accommodations are charming, their hospitality is exceptional... now, let's talk about their breakfasts. My daughter, who rarely eats before 3:00 PM, declared them "epic" and had seconds. Sit outside next to the koi pond and waterfall and stress simply disappears. Location is convenient to most towns you'd... More
