Katharine & Michael’s Incredible Wheatleigh Wedding
Wheatleigh is an idyllic setting for any wedding, from a weekend celebration to a midweek getaway or a Sunday afternoon gathering. A Florentine palazzo atop a Berkshire knoll overlooking mountains and lake, Wheatleigh offers exquisite cuisine and guest accommodations, along with 22 private acres and terraced lawns.
History of the Wheatleigh Hotel
In 1893, Henry H. Cook purchased estate land in The Berkshires. He hired the Peabody and Stearns architectural firm in to build Wheatleigh, an Italianate-style country home inspired by his ancestral family home. Wheatleigh was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982, now the luxurious hotel features contemporary accommodations in an elegant Gilded Age mansion, complete with extraordinary cuisine and exceptional service.
Wheatleigh is one of the smallest Leading Hotels of the World. There are 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. The guest baths boast large soaking tubs and separate showers.
Enjoy Wheatleigh as your own private estate for a weekend of festivities. The Executive Chef will create unique menus for every event. With attention to each detail and incomparable service from the first tasting through the departure of the last guest, Wheatleigh’s highly trained staff will create the extraordinary wedding you envision.
A staircase lit by Tiffany windows leads to the Great Hall, porticos face rolling hills, and century old trees overhang the sculpture garden. All conspire to create an atmosphere that is both intimate and grand. Only 2.5 hours by car from New York and Boston, there is no more romantic Berkshire wedding destination than Wheatleigh.
