Wheatleigh - Lenox, Massachusetts

Rural Intelligence FoodYou may not be the sort of person who would normally dine or stay at Wheatleigh, where the prix-fixe dinner is $125 and the rooms begin at $715. But you can certainly be the sort of person who indulges in a soothing lunch in Wheatleigh’s Library, where an extremely lovely plate of smoked salmon, goat cheese, artichokes and rosemary crackers costs $15 and a dish of artichoke-and-ricotta raviloli with mushrooms and parmesan is $19. Every detail is exquisite, and you’ll definitely ask for seconds of the authentic crusty baguette and sweet butter that is served with your meal. For dessert, share a sampling of intensely flavored house-made ice creams and sorbets ($9). Sitting by the window in this Italianate villa that has been beautifully restored and furnished with spare modern furniture by Tsao & McKown Architects, you’ll receive the royal treatment no matter who you are. —Dan Shaw
