We stayed at the Cornell Inn for two nights. On arrival we were upgraded to "Frances" which is a large room in the main building which was built in 1888. The room has a king size bed, large seating area with chaise and wing back chairs. A fridge, fireplace, Jacuzzi tub and back deck with small table and two chairs are provided, too. We didn't need AC, slept with windows open, not much road sound. Lots of birds in the a.m. woke us, beautiful! The Inn is charming but old and in need of some updating which the new owners seem to be tackling a little at a time. The landscaping and outdoor seating on porches, patio and around the gold fish pond are extra treats on a sunny day. The best part is the breakfast: quiche, baked French toast with apples and syrup (yummy!), pancakes, sausage, juices, toast, cereal...all excellent and a perfect way to start any day.
We have stayed at several B&Bs in New England and overseas, each one is unique in its character and style. Although I rated Cornell Inn a 3, I would give it a 3+ on the scale. As a B&B, it met our bed needs: very comfortable, soft sheets (although softer pillows are our preference), clean bathroom, thick towels; and breakfast needs: hearty and delicious.
This inn is old but charming, within walking distance to Main Street shops and restaurants and outdoor activities at the Kennedy Park. All in all, a positive experience.
