Best of the Berkshires: Fall Leaf-Peeping at Blantyre Hotel, Lenox, Massachusetts

September 11, 2006 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Blantyre

Dating from 1902, Blantyre is a Tudor-country-house estate (modeled after a castle in Scotland) situated amidst 100 acres of impeccably manicured grounds. Critics hail Blantyre as America's Best Inn, its elegant surroundings and superb service conjuring a bygone time of gracious living and refined taste. Here is the ideal spot to enjoy the Berkshires countryside and fall foliage. Recipient of the Mobil Five-Star Award since 2003, Wine Spectator Award of Excellence since 2002, and Andrew Harper's Hideaway Grand Award Winner, Blantyre offers guests an experience of grandeur. Guest rooms feature hand-carved four poster beds, fireplaces, French windows, and lavish furnishings. Play croquet on the tournament-rated croquet courts, hit on the four Har-Tru tennis courts, enjoy the heated pool, relax in the excellent new spa (housed in Blantyre's original Potting Shed), or take to the trails to appreciate the beautiful changing leaves. The hotel is happy to prepare a special picnic basket, decorated with flowers and ribbons, just for the occasion. Dinner, likewise, is a memorable experience (jacket and tie required).
