If you are looking to escape for the entire weekend or even just need a night away from it all, we have got you covered. Here’s a look at five of the most exclusive properties in Massachusetts that are sure to provide an extraordinary stay.

 

1 Blantyre

The Grand Dame of the Berkshires, Blantyre offers one of the most unforgettable stays in Massachusetts. When you drive up to the Tudor mansion that sits prominently on 100 acres surrounded by tennis courts, Potting Shed spa, golf course, croquet lawns and a heated pool, you know you are in for something special. You can choose to do everything here or nothing, but one must-do on the agenda is reserve a table for dinner in the Main House. Dining here is one of the most treasured experiences that begins with a glass of champagne on the Covered Terrace or a glass of wine in the Music Room where a pianist plays nightly before being escorted to beautiful dining room filled with fresh flowers. An impressive cheese assortment and dessert buffet is served after dinner in the Music Room.

2 Wheatleigh

What was originally constructed as a summer cottage during the Gilded Age for New York financier and real estate tycoon Henry H. Cook’s daughter has become one of the most sought after weekend getaways in Massachusetts. The luxury property is nestled in 22 tree-filled acres in the Berkshires with 19 haute rooms and suites where exemplary service is first and foremost. The 19th century Italianate mansion is located just 2.5 hours from both Boston and New York and is easily accessible by private plane.

3 Canyon Ranch

There are luxurious ways to get into better shape and one of the best ways to do just that is with a visit to the exclusive Canyon Ranch property. Also located in the Berkshires, the magnificent century-old Bellefontaine mansion is an architectural masterpiece. The all-inclusive stay here includes a credit to the spa where treatments range from Asian therapies and Ayurvedic body treatments to hydrating wraps and soothing massages. There are a lot of activities to do on property so you never have to leave (think daily fitness and mind-body classes, hikes, bike rides, indoor tennis, canoeing and stand-up paddle board along with cross-country skiing and snowshoeing during the winter months).

4 Mirbeau Inn & Spa

The beauty of Mirbeau can be seen everywhere from the perfectly manicured grounds to the luxury guest rooms. Named after the colors and introspective character found in the paintings of renowned French Impressionist Claude Monet, Mirbeau is reminiscent of a private estate in the countryside near Paris. Lucky for us, we don't have to travel very far (just a 40-minute drive south of Boston) to enjoy a taste of France in a gorgeous setting.

5 Wequassett Resort and Golf Club

If you are in need of a Cape Cod getaway, head to the Wequassett Resort and Golf Club located in Harwich. The oceanfront resort is adorned in typical Cape Cod style complete with whitewashed buildings and clapboard cottages. There are 27 acres here for you to explore. Take a walk along the salt marsh, relax by the sun kissed beach before a sunset cruise, round of golf or tennis match or simply enjoy a leisurely stroll along the beautiful gardens here.
