When we fell in love with a Florentine palazzo sitting incongruously but beautifully on a private knoll. We believed that if architectural gems like Wheatleigh were allowed to vanish they could never be replaced. Our dream was to preserve and use this wonderful treasure in a way that would make it as relevant for this century as it was when it was built in 1893.
To the extent that we have succeeded, we owe a great debt to our architects, to an exceptional group of craftsmen, to a general manager, chef and staff who are beyond compare, and most of all to the many patrons who have supported Wheatleigh over the years.

Once a private, Italianate villa, Wheatleigh has been spectacularly restored, renovated, refreshed, and refurnished … a mere carriage ride from where Edith Wharton wrote, Wheatleigh one again rules as the epicenter of Berkshire style and hospitality.
