Blantyre

Do you ever wish you could experience that special time in our history when life was gentler and slower, more elegant? You can sample that lifestyle at Blantyre, a Forbes 5 star hotel.

Located in Lenox, Massachusetts, 2 hours from Boston and approximately 3 from New York, this former castle has 13 suites and 8 guest rooms. Each room and suite is unique and several have fireplaces. Blantyre sits on 110 acres in the popular Berkshires of western Massachusetts. The main building was created by architect Robert Henderson Robertson for Robert Paterson and his family. It’s tudor style is a tribute to Mr. Paterson’s mom’s ancestral home in Blantyre, Scotland.

BLANTYRE – THE BACK STORY

Back in the day, in the early 1900’s, the Patersons used the home in summer and fall and entertained there often. The opulence of the Gilded Age ended about 20 years later and Blantyre passed through several owners and suffered greatly during the 1970s and sat abandoned for a few years.  In 1980 the Fitzpatrick family bought the estate and restored it to its original grandeur.

THERE’S A REASON FOR EVERY SEASON AT BLANTYRE

In 2000 Ann Fitzpatrick began the immense project of winterizing Blantyre. In 2005 the beautiful home-turned-hotel opened for business all year round. You will enjoy a variety of activities – hiking, tennis, golf, swimming, ice skating, snow shoeing, and cross country skiing, according to season.

FOOD GLORIOUS FOOD

If you enjoy superb cuisine and a curated selection of wines, Blantyre may be a wonderful choice for you. Dinner at the estate is very special. Begin the evening with a glass of champagne and some hors d’oeuvres or a glass of a specially chosen red wine. Notice the candles twinkling on the tables elegantly set with china, crystal, and draped with freshly pressed linens. Dessert follows dinner or opt to have it after you return from a concert by the Boston Symphony , whose summer home is at nearby Tanglewood.
