Had a great Memorial Day weekend in the area and enjoyed our stay here. Walking distance to downtown Lenox restaurants. The breakfast was exactly what was needed. Not over the top, but fresh, plentiful, and very good. I would certainly recommend this place. Everyone was welcoming and friendly. Thanks!!!

My fiance booked 3 rooms for us and my two adult children. We were in the Berkshires for a wedding. I've never stayed at a more charming place! Each room was unique; we had the Rachel, Grace and Harriet rooms. The hot breakfast was a wonderful surprise, as we only expected a continental breakfast. One of the kitchen staff (the...

I found the owners very warm and welcoming. Nell offered me the pick of 3 rooms and I selected "Grace". The stay was quiet and I enjoyed the time outside with the waterfall and pond providing such comfort. The price was very reasonable for B & B's in the area. I will go back if the journey takes me in...

Our recent stay was our first experience with an almost "full house." Nell and Tim didn't miss a beat. Breakfast was still more than adequate and they took care of all special requests. We will be back.

My wife and I checked into the Cornell Inn just after breakfast on May 2, 2015. The circumstances of our arrival were quite unusual and worth noting. We had planned to spend two nights in Lenox and booked and paid in full in advance (more than $400) for accommodations at a bed and breakfast in the heart of the picturesque...

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Cornell Inn this past weekend. Our room (the Mary Todd) was very comfortable and nicely decorated. The yard had a goldfish pond and small waterfall, which were quite inviting. The best part of all was the breakfast both mornings: raspberry and blueberry pancakes, almond French toast, raspberry turnovers, and triple...

My wife and I have stayed here each of the past three years on Divine Mercy Sunday. Very nice staff, clean room and excellent breakfast. I highly recommend Cornell Inn. I plan on staying here in the future. The town of Lenox is charming and the Divine Mercy Shrine in Stockbridge is AWESOME.

I took the grown children for an overnight in the Berkshires, and we visited Mass Moca. I found the inn on B&B.com. I chose this inn because it offered a suite with sleeping for 5. Check in went smoothly and the room was pleasant. The innkeeper suggested an Italian restaurant because she knew it was open...we were not disapppinted. Breakfast...
