“Too Good To Be True”
Reviewed 16 September 2011

This was our seventh or eighth trip to The Blantyre. I keep thinking that it can't get any better, and I keep being proven wrong. The staff is extraordinarily friendly, attentive to every detail, and determined not to allow you to do anything other than relax and enjoy the ambiance of this exquisite property. The food is always exceptional and the wine list is mind boggling. The accommodations in the Ice House are off the charts, but every room and suite that we have stayed in has been amazing in its own way. The "coffee table" books that adorn the rooms are one of the most fascinating aspects of the whole experience. I could easily hole up in any one of the rooms and spend my entire visit just getting lost in the pages and pictures. If you happen to have any time not consumed in eating, enjoying some wine or a cocktail, and immersing yourself in the accoutrements of your living space, walking about the grounds is a balm for the soul. If this isn't heaven on earth, you can certainly see it from here.

Room Tip: If price is no object, go for The Ice House. The Patterson Suite is also exceptional. There are no b...

Be transported in time and relive the luxury of the privileged few who summered in their Berkshire mansions in the early 20th century. Have cocktails and canapes in the drawing room while listening to piano music then off to the dining room with candlelight and beautiful floral arrangements together with attentive and expert service. Then it's back to the drawing room to hear a few more songs.

We stayed in the carriage house which had a huge recently renovated bath and was most convenient to the very large heated pool, spa and whirlpool. There is free wi-fi everywhere, something not always found even in high-end resorts.

The owner was always around greeting guests. The staff was very professional but with a friendly and helpful genuineness that cannot be faked.

The Mount, Edith Wharton's home and gardens are close by and well worth a visit. Also, it is a lovely drive over to the Clark Institute to see their great collection and exhibitions.

This was an anniversary celebration for us and a delightful two days. We would definitely return.

The Blantyre was by far the best hotel I've ever stayed in and possibly ever will. The service was truly unbelievable. When we pulled in to the drive way we were greeted by hotel staff who knew our name and showed us to our cottage. I have no idea how they knew who we were. We walked into the cottage and were greeted with champaign and some snacks (cheese, crackers, and fruit). The room included a fire place, lots of extra fire wood, a private deck and numerous book shelves with some amazing books (we loved the pools books). In the evening we went to the main building for our tasting dinner. FANTASTIC. We sat next to the fireplace and had drinks before being seated in a small room with only two other tables for dinner. I can't possibly say enough about the service. The staff at the Blantyre set the standard for true 5 star service.
We also used the health club, swimming in the pool and using the jacuzzi during our stay. Again, all amazing.
I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for an over the top amazing experience. Loved every minute!!

Room Tip: Rent one of the cabins. While the main residence seems nice, the cabins/cottages are stunning!

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