Overall Score5.0/ 5
We booked the Cornell Inn for an anniversary weekend getaway and it was a perfect place to stay. We brought our dog who we enjoy travelling with and they were very receptive and casual about our dog who is large and well behaved. Our room had both an indoor entrance and an outdoor staircase leading to a deck which went into the room. The weather was cool for late spring but we still were able to sit outside the common outdoor areas which are near the main house of the inn, with plenty of Adirondack chairs and a soothing waterfall into a pond. The location is right outside Lenox which is a charming town and also next door to a park with plenty of hiking trails. Our hosts were so friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again, particularly as it is so close to Tanglewood music festival. The room was cosy and had an extra room for small kids, or a large dog, plus an adequate bathroom with a great shower. All told this Inn is a new favorite spot for other weekend trips to a lovely part of the Berkshires. I would recommend it and is very good value as well.
