Cranwell Resort, Massachusetts

Built in 1866 during America’s Gilded Age, the Cranwell resort has a long history in the hospitality industry and over the years has been host to Harriet Beecher Stowe, Oliver Wendell Holmes, the Vanderbilts and President William McKinley.

Built during this highly opulent period, the Tudor-style Wyndhurst Mansion encapsulated the era’s vision of rural splendor. The Wyndhurst would eventually become the Cranwell Resort , boasting elegant interiors including the richly decorated Great Hall with dark, wood paneling and French tapestries, is the centerpiece of the 380-acre estate with its extraordinary views of the Berkshires.

A championship 18-hole golf course surrounds the structure. The resort is comprised of the mansion, four unique guestroom dwellings, cottages suites and townhouses. The estate’s overall beauty becomes less surprising once its pedigree is revealed: The landscape was designed by renowned landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted—the same man responsible for Central Park. A 35,000-square-foot full-service spa, an expansive fitness center and three on-site restaurants reinforce the epic distinctions of Cranwell Resort, Spa and Golf Club.

So Jody wanted to see what it would cost to go to the World Series this year. The Boston Red Sox are playing the St. Louis Cardinals.

Tickets to Game 2 at Boston run between $346.50 and $585 at primesport.com. We could buy our tickets to the game here and then try for accommodations or we can try to find package deals.

Let’s look at some package deals available. With Game 1 starting tonight, we can look at Game 2 for tomorrow. Greatatlanticsports.com offeres a package starting at $1,295. This will get you 2 nights standard hotel accommodations, 2 reserved upper level foul pole/down the line tickets, and services of tour staff, all taxes and gratuities included to Game 2.

Next is actual travel. From the Canton, Ohio area, to drive would take about 10 hours to drive about 660 miles. Then there are tolls, gas etc.

Round trip flights on Delta from Akron/Canton airport to Logan airport are start at $741.50 leaving today with a layover in Detroit, and returning Friday. Let’s give us some time and leave at 1:35p to arrive at 7:19p with a stopover. That will be $1212.50.

So we are up to just over $2500. When we get there we can decide to use public transportation, see if there are hotel shuttles available or rent a car.
