Wheatleigh
Ranked #8 of 16 Hotels in Lenox
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 July 2012

Though we were there for just 1 night, the Wheatleigh exceeded all expectations. Full of charm and elegance, the property is magnificient with stunning grounds, beautiful rooms and excellent dining. The service was exceptional across the board. We walked to Tanglewood (a true benefit) for an evening concert and the kitchen stayed open late for us so that we could have dinner when we returned. Though pricey, the instant relaxation once there made it more than worth it. We will return for 2 nights next time.

Room Tip: Our junior suite on the second floor was perfectly situated.

Finally getting around to this review (sorry Wheatleigh).
On a trip back from Boston to Albany, my business partner and I took a side trip and stopped here for a brief respite and a bite to eat. We could not have been more pleased. On a cold winter eve we were led to a semi private dining space with a roaring fire (as requested). Asked our extremely professional and knowledgeable waiter for food and wine recommendations and just went with them. They were terrific. After dinner we asked to see more of the facility and were taken on a wonderful tour by one of the guest managers.
I look forward to sharing the warmth and wondrous ambiance of this venue once again.

If you're looking for a quiet, elegant, weekend escape without overbearing staff or too much fluff this is the place! We just got back from two nights at the Wheatleigh and were beyond impressed with the staff, property, rooms and amenities. Tennis- no problem. Bikes- of course. Picnic under a tree with a hammock- you say when. It was honestly like they anticipated our every need and desire. Terry was wonderful helping me coordinate a surprise picnic for our anniversary. The food was delicious, inventive and comforting all in the same bite. The Wheatleigh was the perfect quiet romantic getaway we were looking for!

We cannot wait to return to the Wheatleigh and spend more time at this gem of a hotel!

“Since it is so close to home, we have spent many weekends here just relaxing and taking in the beauty of the Berkshires. During the summer we often go for the Boston Symphony which is quite nearby. The dining is absolutely fantastic — a truly enjoyable experience. We have even stumbled across a few weddings before... what a beautiful place to get married!”

Very small and quiet but that is what we were looking for... The rooms were absoultely spectacular -from the size to the decor to the views..The service was great especially as there was already someone there-though you didn't really see them. If you needed something, there they were! The food was delicious and the menu very well thought out.

One of the few places in that area willing to consider a one-night stay during an October weekend. The refurb done by Tsao McKown still looks great. We arrived Saturday afternoon in time to have a welcome glass of champagne and make it over to the Edith Wharton house/museum before it closed. Got an upgrade from standard to deluxe room which made us very happy (I think only two other rooms were booked for that night). Enjoyed use of the tennis court the next morning before breakfast and a late check out at 1pm. Only downside of being one of the few guests was that there tended to be almost to much attention paid to us by a fairly young staff. But considering the overall cost, you have will have certainly paid for it. We would definitely make a return visit.
