Brackett House closing
Cornell College’s Brackett House Bed and Breakfast is preparing to close on Aug. 5. The goal of Brackett House has been to provide a pleasant and comfortable stay for guests, with the advantage of close proximity to campus. As the 135-year-old home has aged, maintenance needs have outgrown the revenue available from the business and are beginning to hinder the guest experience. The college is still determining how to repurpose the house.
In recent years a Sleep Inn and Suites has opened in Mount Vernon, and other lodging alternatives afford many choices for visitors. Lodging options are listed on the Visit Cornell website.
