What we liked most: The fireplaces by the whirlpools in the spa.

What we liked least: Limited spa time with 3:30 p.m. check-in and 11 a.m. checkout.

What surprised us: The bounty of the breakfast buffet.

You know you're at Cranwell when . . . half the guests rarely change out of swimwear and robes.

Rates: Doubles $175-$325 through May 19, including spa privileges. Of the many packages, we opted for a ''Romance Package" that included a superior room, champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries, spa privileges, breakfast, and three-course dinner in the main dining room for $329-$369. We paid $369 midweek during the school vacation premium period. ''Romance Package" prices go up after May 19. In the mansion, the Music Room is open for breakfast and dinner, Wyndhurst Room for dinner only; entrees $24.75-$32. Sloane's Tavern is open daily for lunch and dinner; dinner entrees $17.95-$26.95.

Directions: From Boston, Cranwell is about 135 miles, about a 2 1/2-hour drive. Take the Massachusetts Turnpike (Interstate 90) west to exit 2 and follow signs to Route 20 west toward Lenox. The Cranwell driveway is 3 1/2 miles on the right.
