A peaceful, secluded, and private sanctuary in The Berkshires, Wheatleigh is one of the smallest Leading Hotels of the World, with 19 guest rooms in an elegant Gilded Age mansion just two and a half hours from Boston and New York. Its signature fine French restaurant, The Portico by Jeffrey Thompson, features just eight coveted tables and an evolving seasonal menu.
"For another glorious Gilded Age sleepover, check into Wheatleigh in Lenox, a secluded Renaissance Revival country home, built in 1893 for Manhattan real estate tycoon Henry H. Cook in western Massachusetts’s Berkshire Hills. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this opulent hotel with only 19 guest rooms and suites — and no two are alike — feels like a private estate."
"The Wheatleigh is a Berkshires cottage that is now a bed-and-breakfast. It’s this supergrand old house that’s been redone in the most beautiful way by the designer Calvin Tsao. The location is incredible, with stunning views. It’s really nice to go for drinks at sunset."
"The Wheatleigh Hotel in Lenox. “I love Wheatleigh—it’s where I lived when I was redoing Blue Stone Manor. The blueberry muffins are to die for—they used to pack them up for me and I’d take them to the worksite.”
An Italianate-style country home, the luxurious hotel features contemporary accommodations in an elegant Gilded Age mansion, complete with extraordinary cuisine and exceptional service.
