went with very good friends to the Berkshires and wanted to treat ourselves to a special weekend. Cranwell delivered. We upgraded our room in the mansion and it was a huge room with sitting area and beautiful views. Room was clean and comfortable and bathroom nicely done. Parking was always easy. Spa was a lovely way to spend a few hours and quiet room was quiet and it had a very upscale, relaxing feel. Only disappointment was breakfast which was very average. We enjoyed finding small diners and coffee shops especially Martins in Great Barrington. Haven in Lenox was my husband's favorite breakfast spot. I think I still prefer the ocean to the mountains but there is so much to do in the area. We loved the tour at the Mount and a hike in Great Barrington to a waterfall and walking and eating in Lenox and Stockbridge. In the evenings, enjoyed Tanglewood which is the most chaotic parking venue I have ever experienced and Oklahoma production thru Berkshire Theatre Festival. Favorite dinner was at Bistro Zinc and the 4 of us our now forever linked by our love of butterscotch budino which we couldn't stop raving about so the chef gave us the recipe.
