Can't Beat Berkshire Beauty in the Fall

We’re staying in the Cornell Inn in Lenox, and the breakfasts are amazing. There's comfy sitting area and a sweet little private pub for guests only.

Our inn is right down the road from the picturesque Church on the Hill.
This morning we went to see The Mount, the home that author Edith Wharton designed for herself and her husband Teddy Wharton. They only lived in it for 9 years, largely due to their troubled marriage. It’s very lovely, but seemed somewhat sterile, having next to nothing of Wharton’s own possessions, and appearing more like a museum than a historic home.

The gardens have been restored to their former glory and were beautiful to walk through, as was the woodland trail.

This evening we had dinner with my dad at our family’s favorite restaurant, a Vietnamese place in Lee called Pho Saigon.
