Wheatleigh in Lenox, Massachusetts

Welcome to Wheatleigh hotel, one of America's premier country house hotels, where bucolic charm meets boutique elegance on a glorious countryside in Massachusetts. Once a private villa, Wheatleigh has been spectacularly restored, paying homage to Europe's stunning Italian palazzos, complete with polished Tiffany windows and simple, refined finishes. Clean, neutral tones and original museum quality art adorn the halls and walls of guest rooms, while posh amenities, like in-room fireplaces and antique soaking tubs establish a regal atmosphere reminiscent of the Italian Renaissance. With just 19 artfully appointed suites the superlative staff does not skimp on the lavish details; come see why Wheatleigh is counted among one of The Leading Hotels of the World.

Even dining is an august experience at Wheatleigh; the hotel's refined eatery, The Dining Room is a recipient of the coveted AAA Five-Diamond Award. A glass-enclosed portico glows with a combination of candlelight and natural light, and the view is nearly as delectable as the dining. Acclaimed chef, Jeffrey Thompson's seasonally shifting menus are set off by impeccable wine pairings and are served by Wheatleigh's attentive, yet unobtrusive staff, leaving you to enjoy a sensual, sophisticated dining experience. Also, tucked away in the hotel, The Library provides an equally delicious, but more casual catalogue of cuisine certain to satiate the most discerning palate. With a setting as picturesque as a hilltop palazzo, Wheatleigh offers an idyllic location for weddings, honeymoons, or "just because" romantic retreats. Conveniently located near New York and Boston for those who hope to retreat to the city for shopping or sightseeing, Wheatleigh is the perfect country escape for those seeking romance and relaxation against a breathtaking country backdrop.

Elegant facility, and of course beautiful views of the Berkshires. Staff is extremely pleasant and helpful. The meals were superb. The summer barbeque was very tasty, but not traditional barbeque fare. The one downside- it is expensive.

This is a luxurious hotel hidden away in the hills of the Berkshires, particularly in the quaint little town of Lenox. The grounds are beautiful, the architecture sumptuous! The home is truly antique---but what a luxurious antique---a French country chateau built on a lovely piece of land. A gift from an American industrial tycoon to his lucky daughter as a wedding gift at the turn of the 20th century. No expense was spared as you will see in all the marble floors, giant detailed fireplaces in almost every room, high ceilings, long halls, lovingly refinished furnishings and all the exterior architecture. Since it was once a private country home, there is a long private driveway to get there. And there are only a handful of rooms to stay at this "hotel" so that means there is tons of privacy, quiet and never any lines or crowds at all. you almost have this place to yourself during non-dining hours. when I walked the hall, sat in the reading room or got ready for bed, I could almost pretend that I really lived there. It was that private and cozy overall experience. The staff all were surprisingly sweet and sincere. Many of these young people are from around the world and were eager to give you a lovely stay. The first night we were there a blizzard kept many patrons from coming to the dinner seating at the restaurant. Since we had a room there we were lucky enough to enjoy an almost empty dining room. We sat close by the fire but not too close to be too hot. The staff was extremely attentive and truly excited and happy to share the delicious food and drink. I got to taste the diverse cheese platter (American and European)... and the chef kept on sending free samples of savory and sweet food to our table, in addition to our entree order. I don't drink alcohol most of the time, but they are proud of their wine list. And for dessert, I did have a glass of my favorite port wine---Grahams. When we left I and my husband felt very pampered and happy. Because we moved, we may never get to stay here again, but this place is one to remember! Truly a wonderful treat.

We had a great time staying at the Wheatleigh Hotel last weekend and amazed by the great customer service that we received. Everyone we met was so competent and knowledgeable about the area and a special thanks goes out to Brigitta and Markus. From arrival to the hotel, valet service, not to mention we were greeted with a glass of champagne, breakfast up until we departed everything was on point. The room was so clean, truly impressed. Thank you for a great weekend!!!

Stayed at Wheatleigh over the past winter weekend. The property is stunning and the staff is very friendly and competent. (Special thanks to Julie in reservations) You literally feel like you are transported to Europe when you walk in to the place and the valet takes your car. The rooms are extremely luxurious with high ceilings and comfortable beds. But this is where the fantasy ended for us unfortunately. Wheatleigh allows kids and dogs. We love kids and love dogs but not when spending $1000 a night. The dogs were barking and the kids were running around the hallways. Door were being slammed constantly, btw kids wake up pretty early apparently. There was even a baby monitor sitting on the grand staircase on full blast one evening... We mentioned this upon checkout and was told that we should "come back in the summer, there's less kids" and we should have called and complained while we were there and they would have spoken to the "mother". We were also told we were the only people that complained and that unfortunately our room was sandwiched between a room with a dog and a room with multiple kids. This was truly disappointing. Management didn't offer to compensate or make any accomodation for us for because we didn't bring it up during our stay. So --- my advice would be this --- if you stay at Wheatleigh 1.) Rent the whole place out so you don't have to deal with other peoples kids 2.) Bring your own kids / dogs and bring your friends and act like you own the place 3.) "Stay in the summer" ?!?!? It's a real shame as I could see ourselves returning to this beautiful property if this issues hadn't affected us. It's a 3 hour drive from nyc, the food is top notch and the service is out of this world as well as a stunning transporting accommodation. Hope that helps
