"Itself no longer a private house, Blantyre is perhaps an even better thing-a country-house hotel dispensing the kind of service, cuisine and décor that only luxury tempered by good taste can bring into being."
Luxury Hotel Accommodation
With its lovely leaded glass windows, richly burnished woods and luxurious fabrics, the inside of Blantyre is exactly what you would expect upon seeing the outside of the building. In the Main House, there are overstuffed chairs, fresh flowers, a light-filled music room, and rooms for private dining - all designed with the comfort of our guests in mind. The heart of the house, the baronial Main Hall on the first floor, is an eclectic mix of period pieces and treasured heirlooms specially assembled under owner Ann Fitzpatrick Brown and her mother Jane's discerning eyes.
Eight exquisite guest bedrooms and suites, many with fireplaces, all with their own unique personality, are located on the second floor.
As befits accommodations named after Blantyre's original owner, the Paterson Suite offers grandeur of a bygone era. Decorated in soft shades of cream and celadon green, rich damask covers the walls, the sumptuous sofa and overstuffed chairs. The unusually spacious bedroom includes an enormous, and enormously inviting, four-poster bed. Nine shuttered windows keep the world out or open to a tranquil scene of lush lawns shaded by towering trees, a view you're sure to enjoy. An adjoining sitting room is the perfect place to unwind with a working fireplace, a desk tucked beautifully in a bay window, a daybed and easy chairs for reading, or drifting gently off.
Often requested as a bridal suite, the Paterson Suite has two bathrooms. The larger bath has a soaking tub, marble hand basin, dressing table and a whimsical flowered loveseat. The second bath has a walk-in shower and a pretty flowered chandelier.
An inviting space, the Bouquet Room is as fresh and friendly as a just-picked bunch of meadow flowers. A lovely yellow rose paper lines the walls, luscious cream-colored, quilted bedspreads made into draperies - we added the fringe - fall to the floor in thick, full folds, and moss green carpeting is soft underfoot.
The comfy, queen-size four-poster bed features creamy bedding and a golden dust ruffle. A writing desk is close at hand should you wish to tell friends about your Berkshires adventure. The bathroom has a tub and shower combination and is decorated with another pretty floral wallpaper.
