I travel extensively and stay at many world class hotels, the quality of the customer service at the Wheatleigh exceeds them all. Admittedly, the hotel and restaurant are a tad on the expensive side, but this is one instance in which you get what you pay for. My wife and I just finished a 3 day/2 night stay and the... More

I am just returning from a family girls trip in the Berkshires. We stayed 3 nights in 2 junior suites at the Wheatleigh ($1,500 plus taxes each room, although room 2 C was half the size of room 2 G, they cost the same) I booked it because of the wonderful reviews I read here. We have stayed at other... More

It is hard to write a review for a hotel that has been a personal favorite for a while. I live in the New England area and have toured all properties around; Wheatleigh tops the list. Excellent place to relax and detox. The only downside to it is that it has no spa. Everything else is five star without a... More

We've just returned from a fabulous 3 night stay at the Wheatleigh. Having been lucky enough to have stayed in some of the best hotels in the world, we can categorically say it is undoubtedly one of the best due to the unique combination of its beautiful setting, its private country house atmosphere, it's elegant rooms and public spaces, but...

the Wheatleigh is a special experience. I came here with my mom to relax for the weekend and explore the Berkshires. The service is nothing short of perfection - 100% attentiveness yet mindful and unobtrusive. I loved the quiet, privacy, peace, and tasteful elegance of the entire place. The food was extraordinary, down to the chocolate chip cookies in the... More

We had a fantastic night at the Wheatleigh. Our room was great, the food was superb, the service was fantastic…I give it a 10 out of 10. My only hesitation in giving it such a strong recommendation is it was just soooo expensive. I'm fairly used to spending top dollar on great places but this was a bit ridiculous. We... More

I had a brief stay this week in the unique Wheatleigh. Unlike Europe, New England has a small number of grand old estates converted into hotels. The Wheatleigh has a soul and sense of history. The views, common areas and grounds invite the imagination to run - to wonder how the place felt during its original ownership. It is a... More

We spent a long weekend at the Wheatleigh to celebrate a birthday. We were greeted out front by the very professional and friendly staff, two glasses of wine in hand, who ushered us in and out back to the beautiful patio overlooking the sweeping hill to relax and "start the weekend"! We were blown away by the beauty of the... More

We traveled on Thursday, September 26th with great expectations to our favorite hotel, Wheatleigh in Lenox Massachusetts to relax for a few days vacation over the Labor Day weekend. We had enjoyed a wonderful two days replete with a visit to the Clark Museum and highlighted by sumptuous brunches (their egg white soufflé may be worth trip in itself!) and... More
