Good value in a pricey town Mar 29, 2014
N42°21.942' W73°16.913' The day after the Tanglewood music festival, we arrived in September 2013 at The Cornell Inn. It was winding down from intense busy days and, hopefully for us, from abnormal expensive rates. Yes, hopefully, because Lenox is a pricey town with expensive B&B’s oozing luxury, oversized Jacuzzis, marble bathrooms and wine and cheese in the evening. Most of them are only open during the holiday season. Our only affordable alternative was the motel along Veterans Memorial Highway, so when we saw the sign vacancies, we asked for an off-season bargain and the friendly owner/manager agreed.

The Cornell Inn is spread across three historic houses. It’s no gilded mansion, but the rooms are cosy with the expected amenities and friendly staff. We talked with the owner/manager for more than an hour about the houses, the festival and the bordering Kennedy Park. In the afternoon we hiked the park, walking up Aspinwall Road. It’s well suited for hikers and guests itching for a morning jog before breakfast.

The Barbara room, named after former first lady Barbara Bush, has a romantic interior and a nice bed. We slept very well with the window open, avoiding the noise from the window air conditioner. Noise from Main Street is limited. Breakfast buffet changed every day and was abundant. Meanwhile we had nice conversations with the other guests. Wi-Fi-reception is good.

The Cornell Inn offers good value in a pricey town. Recommended.
