We really enjoyed each breakfast as the ingredients were fresh and well balanced. Dinner in the library was warm and very relaxing.

My husband and I had a fabulous meal with such attention to detail in every respect. The property is a gem in Lenox and we were treated wonderfully by all of the staff. I can't even describe the lovely meal in detail to do it justice, but you will not be disappointed. After a leisurely 3 hours, we left wanting... More

This was our second stay. From the moment they greet you at your car until the time you check out they make you feel special. They walked us to our room immediately and welcomed us back. I had a small cooler of cheese that I had purchased in VT and I asked if they would put it in their fridge... More

If you ignore the pretentiousness aspect, of which there is much, you can imagine this 1883 (so we were told) home, a bridal gift from father to daughter, house in full splendor. Just glorious venue, with lush grass and lovely garden to walk around. French accented staff...the burrata starter was excellent, the salmon overcooked and a bit hard, but the... More

By far, one of the most elegant restaurants anywhere. The price may catch you a bit off guard. It is fairly steep, but well worth it! Do you have a special occasion in the near future? Be sure to make reservations and ENJOY!

In August my wife and I had the opportunity to dine at The Wheatleigh. Driving there we felt that we must be lost because it is far removed from any population center. It is a beautiful place to stay and to dine at. We had a wonderful prix-fixe menu dinner. The only part that we felt was not meeting the... More

What can I say? Make a reservation and arrive early to enjoy a drink before dinner and the views. If you want a fine dining experience with European style service, you just might want to give The Wheatleigh Main Dining Room a try. From the time one arrives until one departs, you are made to feel as a most welcome... More

Tall open windows in a minimalist neoclassical surrounding offer panoramic views in this gracious mansion. Both the menu and wine list are extensive and offer an impressive range and quality of tastes artfully presented. Servers may appear overly pretentious and watchful which means that unless you are in a large group you may feel uncomfortably restricted. Since there are numerous... More

While A beautiful, romantic room the food is just ok and over priced! There is much better and more reasonable restaurants in the Lenox area.
