Best B&B stay yet!

4.6 on May 09, 2015

We stayed at the Cornell Inn for a quick weekend getaway and it turned out to be a real mini vacation. As we sat outside on the patio by the koi pond eating an absolutely delicious breakfast and sipping some of the best coffee with the sun shining down, life felt really great! Our suite was so cozy that it just felt like being home, but with none of the housekeeping. Nell & Tim were so welcoming, friendly and helpful that we are not only coming back again, but also bringing our family!

great weekend getaway!!

This is a great place to getaway to! We would love to go back during the summer to be able to admire the grounds, koi pond, waterfall, outdoor eating & relaxing on the porches in the rocking chairs. Nell was wonderful seeing we had everything I wanted for our special weekend away. The breakfast was wonderful & the afternoon peanut butter cookies & hot cider were amazing!!!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for the kind review, I'm so glad you had a good getaway! We hope you get to come back this summer! Best Wishes Nell


Relaxing Stay

4.0 on March 26, 2015

My boyfriend and I went to celebrate our anniversary, stayed in the Frances room. We had the best time - no plans, no schedules, just very relaxing. We will definitely return if we are visiting the area. The staff is so personable, caring, and considerate. I definitely recommend staying here!

Innkeeper Response
So glad you enjoyed simply having no set plans and enjoying some down time. Thanks for the review! Nell


Beautiful B & B

4.4 on March 26, 2015

We had a wonderful weekend stay at this lovely inn. Everything was very clean, the owners were very accommodating and friendly. They even delivered a large card table to our building's common area so that the four of us could play board games on a cold snowy evening. The breakfasts provided by the chef were unbelievably delicious, fresh and bountiful. We would love to come back in the summer to appreciate all of the outdoor sitting/dining spaces that were unfortunately, still buried deep in snow:)

Innkeeper Response
So glad you had a fun week-end with us even though Mother Nature was a bit cranky. We hope you 4 come back for another visit! Thanks for taking the time to write us a review! Best Wishes Nell

Great get away weekend!

4.4 on March 04, 2015

Stayed in the Hannah room. It was perfect. Very quiet. 2 floors 3 rooms and cozy fireplace. Would give 5 stars but the bathroom was incredibly small (but spotless). Breakfast was very good and the owners extremely hospitable. We will definitely return and hope to stay in the same room next year.

Innkeeper Response
So glad you had a good time with us! Looking forward to your next visit. Thanks for the review Cheers, Nell
