Welcome to The Berkshires and The Cornell Inn

The beautiful, centuries-old Cornell Inn is located in the heart of the historic village of Lenox, just up the road from Tanglewood and a short stroll from the restaurants, shops, galleries, and boutiques of Main Street.  Our bed and breakfast is comprised of three period style buildings, situated on 4 exquisite acres of beautifully groomed gardens, against a background of mountainous waterfall and pond; an oasis of privacy and serenity. 
Our lodging is positioned at the base of well-known Kennedy Park, a wooded nature preserve with trails for hiking, biking, walking, running, cross country skiing and snowshoeing. 
We have 28 guest rooms, some possessing lofts, and others which can be combined into suites.  We are open year-round, welcoming wedding parties, family reunions, corporate guests and extended stay vacations, as well.
