Cornell Inn Owners Announce Acquisition of The Lakehouse Inn, MA

Owners of The Cornell Inn in Lenox, MA have acquired its second Berkshires retreat: The LakeHouse Inn. Located five minutes away on Laurel Street in Lee, MA, the 119-year-old inn sits on two acres of lakefront property offering guests a 7,937-square-foot escape with 500 feet of waterfront space on Laurel Lake.

Reservations at The LakeHouse Inn will be available starting February 2023. The inn has just 14 queen- and king-bed suites and guestrooms, all recently renovated to accommodate modern conveniences that accentuate the property’s historic charm. Lakeside rooms have private balconies with views of the lake while larger top-floor rooms provide more space to unwind and relax, while also offering easy access to the inn’s outdoor spaces.

Said Kurt Inderbitzin, owner of The Cornell and LakeHouse Inns: “It’s really remarkable for a hotel to have 500 feet of lakefront property with western sunsets on an undeveloped lake anywhere. My wife and I were enamored with its natural beauty, and we can’t wait to share our small piece of paradise with the visitors to the Berkshires.”

Activities at The LakeHouse Inn include complimentary kayaks and paddle boards, swimming in the Laurel Lake, and wine and cheese hour. The addition of an outdoor deck will allow guests and the local community to enjoy one of Berkshire’s most picturesque sunset locations. The new owners plan to accommodate outdoor dining, starting with breakfast and additional meals to follow later this year. Plans also include live music and local entertainment for all to enjoy.
