We went for a intimate family wedding. It was the most charming, exquisite wedding, due to the ambience of this hotel.

If you have ever wondered what it was like to be fabulously wealthy In the 1950's, stay at the Blantyre and wonder no more. the rich have pretty ways and everything about this property is over the top. You will be reminded of your grandparents tastes and preferences from the floral wallpapers and fabrics to the mounts of exotic game animals.

The service is spectacular. The wine cellar has no equal. The food is lavish.

But, the spa needs work. We booked a couple of appointments one afternoon only to get a message in our room shortly before noon that the therapist had an issue and they would have to cancel my appointment. The fitness facility does have a couple of Woodway treadmills, but that is all to recommend it. But, this is completely consistent with the period of the place. After all, who but Jack Lalane exercised in the 1950's?

A word about the cost of all of this opulence, if your home is not a mansion of equal size and scale, then you are not the Blantyre's target audience. Nice rooms run about $1000 a night and unlike comparable resorts like The Point, that is not all inclusive. Moreover, there is an 18 percent service charge on your daily bill for the staff, so figure another $180 a night on top of the $1000 for a nice room before taxes. In summary, a three night stay in a nice room will run you more than $5000. for this reason, their $8 price for a cola makes perfect sense.

If you long for the good life back when Harry Truman was President, stay at The Blantyre and practice at the art of doing absolutely nothing all day with a talented staff who are determined to anticipate your every need.

Room Tip: The Laurel Suite is lovely

quick stop over on a long east coast trip -- wonderfully quaint, friendly staff - maybe a slow night but a bit empty. Overall my husband and I enjoyed our stay but maybe we needed more time to appreciate it fully.

If only everybody cared as much about guest satisfaction as Ann F. Brown, the owner of Blanytre does! She runs her award winning English luxury country house with an observant, meticulous eye and a generous heart.

Oodles of complimentary amenities are yours as a guest from the minute you walk in the door until the minute you leave. Very luxurious to be so pampered, and such a nice treat.

Quick and pleasant service for any request, be it for a delcious afternoon snack in your room, laundry done, a spa appointment made, or one of the staff to give you a ride to take you into town if you are having a casual bite to eat at Nudel's in Lenox for dinner

(Blantyre's dining room is the most romantic I've ever seen for a formal dinner, with all the candlelight and exotic fresh flowers and pretty table settings!)

The property is in a quiet setting with wild turkeys running around the extensive grounds, flashing their gorgeous tailfeathers. Many beautiful old trees and spacious green lawns. A great place to unwind, with lots of activities, should you choose them, from the croquet lawns to the tennis courts to the swimming pool to the ice skating rink -- and a golf course nearby.

The Paterson suite is spacious and VERY comfortable inside - as is Laurel Suite, Corner Suite and The Blue room (my favorites in the house).

Everything is spotlessly clean.

Water pressure is good in the bathrooms. Towels are thick and soft. Robes are too!

Evening turn-down was right on time.
Soundproofing is great - I never heard anything from the hallway or other rooms. Slept like a baby on the great mattress with the smooth sheets, fluffy pillows, and blackout curtains drawn on the windows.

Breakfast is delicious in the sunny, many-windowed conservatory. Fresh squeezed orange juice, flaky crossants with home made jam and marmalade, steaming hot tea or coffee.

Happy to be back on my second visit within a year, and looking forward to returning.
Blantyre beats nearby Wheatleigh hands down. If you're going to spend $1,000 a night or more - spend it here!
