Wheatleigh is located in Lenox, Massachusetts, just two and a half hours from Boston and New York. Those who are familiar with area will recognize Wheatleigh as the luxury resort next to Tanglewood, the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra; those who are visiting for the first time will be pleasantly surprised by its access to top Lenox attractions. The 19-room hotel is hidden off Hawthorne Road, a picturesque street lined with evergreen trees and white-picket-fenced homes, just minutes from Lenox’s center. Directly behind Wheatleigh is a lake where you can kayak, canoe or picnic. A short drive from the resort’s front doors will land you among art galleries, antique stores, museums and boutiques native to the Berkshires and the surrounding towns. If you’re visiting the boutique hotel in the fall, be sure to request a room overlooking the lake. These accommodations offer some amazing fall foliage scenes, especially at sunset.
