Wheatleigh

    Built in 1893 and renovated in 2000, the white-columned Wheatleigh is set within a 22-acre park (designed by Central Park landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted) just outside the village of Lenox, Massachusetts. The summer season is time for swimming in the pond-like pool, lounging on the lawn that rolls down to the resort’s lake, and attending concerts at Lenox’s Tanglewood Music Center. Chef Jeffrey Thompson’s winter tasting menu salutes the season with venison tartare with baby beets and horseradish. Accommodations The 19 guest units include superior rooms with park views; junior suites with fireplaces, king beds, and soaking tubs; and the two-story Aviary tree house suite. Recreation The 22-acre grounds contain a pond-style swimming pool, a boccie court, a tennis court, and a fitness room. Dining Superb seasonal tasting menus at the Dining Room and lighter fare at the Library. Worthy Diversion Lenox is home to the Mount, author Edith Wharton’s former estate, which is open to the public for tours and lectures. Rates From $645 to $1,750; the Palazzo Suite begins at $15,000
