My husband and I had stayed at the Thornewood about seven years ago when we had kids at camp in the area. We remembered it as being a charming inn that included a wonderful breakfast. We were very disappointed with our weekend stay in mid July. The furniture in the room was worn and in places had not been dusted in a while. I had to ask for a hair dryer which was promptly brought to me, but for what we were paying I felt should have been in the room. The location was much closer to the highway and much noisier than I remembered. Perhaps most disappointing of all were the breakfasts. They were minimal self-service offerings and not particularly good. Given how poor the breakfasts were, we were not tempted to try dinner. We noticed that there were very few people in the restaurant (Spencer's) on either Friday or Saturday night.
One other problem with our stay, which was not the inn's fault, was that there is no cell phone service (at least for Verizon customers) in the South Berkshires. That alone would make us stay elsewhere on our next trip to the area.
