Local Stops: Wheatleigh Hotel

Saturday, December 31, 2016



Tucked in the charming Berkshire Hills in Lenox, Massachusetts rests the Wheatleigh Hotel. Built in 1893, and designed by Boston-based architectural firm Peabody and Stearns after a 16th century Florentine palazzo. Materials and over 150 artisans were brought over from Italy in order to execute the intricate carvings seen throughout the property. The land surrounding the palazzo, referred to as "Wheatleigh Park", was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, the landscape architect responsible for designing Central Park in New York City, as well as many other notable parks around the country. It was built by Henry H. Cook as a wedding present for his daughter when she married Count Carlos de Heredia. 

Wheatleigh has 19 rooms and suites brimming with elegance and sophistication.  The 22 acre property overlooking the Berkshire Mountains is within driving distance of both Boston and New York City, and easily accessible by private plane. The dining room at the Wheatleigh is a AAA Five Diamond Award recipient. You can learn more and see sample menus here. Their facilities include a tennis court, outdoor heated pool, massage room, and fitness room. Exclusive use of the property for weddings, meetings, private parties, and events is available. The small size of the property allows for exceptional and fully customized service.  Whether you are a local or just enjoying a getaway in the Berkshires, you have to at least drop by the Wheatleigh for a visit.
