About Us

Travel 120 miles west of Boston, 138 miles from New York City and discover Blantyre.Set amidst 110 acres of spectacular Berkshire countryside, this Tudor-style mansion, built in 1902, replicates a grand Scottish manor.The splendor of Blantyre reflects the love and devotion of owners Jack and Jane Fitzpatrick and their daughter, Ann.
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.
The Tudor-style manor houses eight exquisite bedrooms and suites, many with fireplaces.The twelve accommodations in the nearby Carriage House echo the warm and lush fabrics, antiques and style of the Main House, as do the four private cottages.Every bedroom at Blantyre has a distinct character.
Dining is a very special event at Blantyre. Late every afternoon, the Main House undergoes a lovely transformation as we prepare for the delightful dining experience to come that evening. Linens are brought out, tables are set with sterling silver, fine china, crystal, and fresh flowers. Beautiful music fills the air and candles are lit. Under the knowing eye of Chef Christopher Brooks, the kitchen is a hive of activity as the finest ingredients are used to create a memorable dining experience.
When you arrive, you can enjoy a pre-dinner glass of Champagne and canapés on the covered terrace or in the Main Hall. Or sample one of our rich red wines in the Music Room. Then adjourn to the dining room where your delicious entrée will be served by our gracious staff.24-hour in-room dining is also available.

Guest Rooms & Suites

Paterson Suite

As befits accommodations named after Blantyre's original owners, Robert and Marie Louise Paterson, the Paterson Suite offers an elegance 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, king sized four-poster bed. Nine shuttered windows keep the world out or open to a tranquil scene of lush lawns shaded by towering trees with hills on the horizon, a view you're sure to enjoy. An adjoining sitting room is the perfect place to relax with a working fireplace, a desk tucked beautifully in a bay window, a daybed and easy chairs for reading, or drifting gently off.


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 lusciously flowered chandelier. Also hidden by a luscious pile of oversize towels is a white wicker commode owned by Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio.

Crimson Suite

A favorite of many guests, the Crimson Suite is richly decorated in shades of cream, beige, and crimson, with fine damasks and silk. In the bedroom, a cloud-soft, king-sized bed is perfectly placed in the wide bay of windows and flanked by a handsome desk.


In the dressing room, a mirrored vanity and delicate stool are well positioned so you can take advantage of natural or artificial light, whichever suits your needs best. An extra-wide cushioned bench piled high with pillows is the perfect spot to curl up and read before dressing for dinner or anytime at all. The bathroom features vibrant wallpaper above the tiles, a soaking bath and a separate walk-in shower. Outdoors, a private balcony with chairs and chaise lounges offers the promise of sun, solitude and breakfast outdoors in the warmer months.

Laurel Suite

The spacious rooms of the Laurel Suite are decorated with Jane Fitzpatrick's – Ann's beautiful, ever gracious mom – favorite flowered wallpaper. The elegant king-size bed sits within a large bay window where flowing silk curtains and shutters encircle the area. In the sitting area, the rosy pink fireplace tiles echo the color of the sisters' dresses in the painting that hangs above the mantle. An overly comfortable sofa and two antique chairs surround the marble-topped coffee table, a perfect place for late night snacks or early morning newspaper reading.


A separate dressing room contains a glass-covered, tulle-skirted vanity and pretty tufted stool as well as the chaise longue so necessary for lounging.

Blue Room

One of the wonderful things about Blantyre is that every room has a distinct personality all its own. The Blue Room – with its soft blue color, painted furniture, and generously curtained and ruffled double windows with a grand view of our rolling lawns – provides a soothing and peaceful retreat.


The pretty pale-colored walls of sky blue are echoed in the ruffled curtains made by our very own Martha. Two overstuffed blue velvet chairs sit in front of the fireplace. Be sure to seek out the blue "hide and seek" vintage wallpaper that decorates the full bath, with a walk-in shower, soaking tub and marble sink.

The Corner Room has been lovingly furnished. The original daffodil yellow tiles still decorate the fireplace and drive the distinctive look of this spacious room. You'll find an elegant and inviting four-poster, king-size bed and comfortable armchairs inviting you to sink down and really relax.


Special touches include creamy yellow and muted green wallpaper cleverly hung to simulate a garden. Much of the original reproduction French furniture – very fashionable in the very early 1900's – ornately carved mirrors, wall sconces and light fixtures complete this gracious room setting. The bathroom is quite large, with a soaking tub, an amazing, separate walk-in double steam shower and marble sink.

Ice House Cottage

The Ice House Cottage, like the rest of Blantyre, is known for being beautiful and personal. Fully renovated in 2001, the two-bedroom cottage is grand and yet intimate. Retaining both its name and some of its marble walls from the original structure, the Ice House's interiors and carefully chosen furnishings reflect Blantyre's commitment to your comfort.


While it is no easy task to give you the special feeling of the Ice House Cottage, what follows may help. In the generously sized living room upstairs, there is a mahogany dining table along with intricately carved and cushioned 19th century American chairs well suited to private candlelit dinners – with delicious food and fine wine graciously provided by Blantyre, if you like. A window seat, piled high with pillows, is the perfect place to curl up and catch up on your reading or watch a stunning sunset or sunrise. The screened porch is a perfectly private place to share drinks and laughter with friends.


Weather permitting, you can fling open the bedroom's French doors, step out onto your private deck as soon as you wake up. Or take a short walk to one of our Har-Tru tennis courts. In the sumptuous marbled bathroom, you can refresh after a game on our courts, whether tennis or croquet. Perhaps request a massage in your room. Unwind with a long bath in the soaking tub or be reinvigorated in our spacious walk-in shower.


Downstairs Alexander's Room – named after Ann's son whose only request was the huge TV with VCR/DVD and James Bond movies and a drawer of candy – includes a bedroom with a king-sized bed, shower, and a shaded outdoor patio edged in boxwood.


Throughout the Ice House Cottage, tones of cream, blue, peach and rose.

New owners are getting their sea legs, dear reader. Servers are inexperienced and slow at this point in time, but certainly sincere. Wonderful pool, but the hot tub has been retired (boarded over.) Rooms all redone, keeping some antiques. Fewer books. Change is tricky! The lovely pianist Karèn is still appearing regularly! Virtuoso will provide certain amenities!
