In 1893, Henry H. Cook purchased estate land in The Berkshires. He hired the Peabody and Stearns architectural firm in Boston to build Wheatleigh, an Italianate-style country home inspired by his ancestral family home in Wheatley, Oxfordshire. Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982, the luxurious hotel features contemporary accommodations in an elegant Gilded Age mansion, complete with extraordinary cuisine and exceptional service.
One of the smallest Leading Hotels of the World, Wheatleigh has 19 guest rooms and suites that set the standard for style and sophistication. Understated yet artfully designed, each room features high ceilings, fine antiques, and museum-quality art, while guest baths boast large soaking tubs and separate showers.
Every season has its own characteristics and offers new ways of experiencing the area. These are just a few ways to get the best out of The Berkshires while staying at Wheatleigh.
