We are a young couple from New York. We went up to the Berkshires for a short weekend getaway and were also attending the BSO performance at Tanglewood. We decided to stay at Wheatleigh for the first time. We were surprised to see the staff waiting at the driveway with a warm, welcome smile and who couldn’t wait to welcome us inside. We had some welcome champagne at the back Terrace before heading to our room. The view was magnificent overlooking to the mountains and lake. This place is exactly what my husband and I wanted. It was so peaceful. The service was extremely personalized. The Front office agent offered us a tour of the property and also gave us a short orientation about the history of the Wheatleigh. Even though it was built in 1893 the interior and architectural design is modernistic. Especially for us, we love staying at a modern and up to fashion hotel which seems hard to find in the Berkshires. We also saw the fitness room and a wonderful wine cellar. There was a great collection of wines from around the world. We were even offered a wine tasting at the end of our tour. We were extremely happy and already enjoying our time here. The last thing we saw was the outdoor heated pool; again I could not believe there is such thing like Wheatleigh up here in the Berkshires. It was such a lovely setting. We requested for an Aromatherapy massage on Saturday by the pool and the hotel was kind enough to arrange for us at the last minute. Our room was a Junior suite on the 2nd floor overlooking the mountain sand the lake with a private covered balcony. We couldn't ask for more with the price we've paid. The room was equipped with a Bang& Olufsen entertainment system and a powermat for my Ipad and Black Berry. At first I couldn’t understand how to use it but the agent noticed and immediately explained it to me. For dinner that evening we went down to the AAA 5 diamond awarded Dining room. We were greeted by the host from the stairway down to the great hall. We were laughing to each other and still can’t believe these young people are so detail oriented and passionate about what they are doing. I noticed the entire staff was young but provided such an exceptional service. We had the seven course chef's tasting menu and were completely filled, but it was a delicious dinner. Throughout our stay we were completely spoiled; it was a memorable experience with prompt service. We will definitely return, let us hope our work gives us more days like this. Thank you to all for such a wonderful weekend.
