About the Cornwall Inn


The Cornwall Inn, echoing the spirit and style of old New England, is a family-owned country inn located on three lush acres, including outdoor pool, hot tub and rambling stream.  The Main Inn houses two lovely common rooms available to guests at all time and a seasonal screened-in patio.  See PHOTO GALLERY

The 13 nicely appointed guest rooms all have private bath, air conditioning, telephones and free wireless internet access. A hearty continental breakfast is served each morning.

The Main Inn was built in 1821. The first floor includes a private restaurant and tavern, the Gathering Room and the Breakfast Room.  The second floor includes four classic Bed & Breakfast rooms and a two-bedroom suite. The Country Lodge (shown left) is a separate building with eight rooms, six at ground level. Each room has its own entrance.

Husband & wife team, Mark Hampson and Stacey Marcin, searched for two years and visited 36 inns from Maryland to Maine to find the perfect place to fulfill their dream of owning and operating an authentic country inn while raising their young family.   Thirteen years later, they still love the choice they made!  Former bed & breakfast owner/operators from Philadelphia, Stacey and Mark have breathed new life into the charming and spacious accommodations while retaining the antique charm of the Main Inn and the casual comfort of the Country Lodge.
