My wife and I had a Valentine's Day weekend here and really enjoyed our stay. It's very comfortable, with a nice sitting area next to the lobby, a small bar area and a nice breakfast room. Our room (Letitia) was not in the main building, but it was only a short walk away along a well-maintained path. The fireplace in...

Thank you for your kind review. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay with us over the Valentine's Day week-end. We are fortunate to have 18 rooms with working wood fireplaces, which have been so wonderful for our guests during this crazy New England winter. We hope you come back for another visit!

This is our third stay at the Cornell, and the first with these owners. We had a very nice overnight stay, very comfortable and relaxed. It was a quiet time at the Inn so we didn't meet many people or have the buffet breakfast but they cooked to order for us instead. Karen greeted us and showed us our room...

My room was so lovely -,elegant yet cozy - that I didn't want to go out. Delightful bed and linens. To me, the Inn's furnishings and atmosphere felt genuinely historic, and not overly ornate. No cutesy teddy bears or fake flowers or plug-in perfumes in sight, thank God. I liked talking with knowledgable owner and interesting staff. . I felt...

My girlfriend and I stayed for a night in December and we loved it. It is walking distance to restaurants in downtown Lenox and there is also a bar in the inn and a delicious breakfast. The fireplace in the room was definitely the highlight.

Stayed in the adjacent building, after "peak foliage" weekend(s) - great rate for what can be an expensive B&B area. Our room was comfortable - not a premium bathroom but at least en suite. I would have given a four-star were it not for the outstanding breakfast in a very comfortable room in the main house. Has a B&B although...

We had a lovely room on the second floor of the MacDonald house with a whirlpool tub, working fireplace and outdoor balcony sitting area.
