This exquisitely restored 19th-century Italianate palazzo is set amid 22 acres of parkland designed by Frederick Law Olmsted. The property is a short walk from Tanglewood, the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Among the 19 lodgings, the five Junior Suites on the second floor offer balconies with views of the serene and wooded landscape. Contemporary and traditional furnishings, modern art and decorative objects from around the world accent the Great Hall and lounge. Dining options include chef Jeffrey Thompson’s award-winning French restaurant, which expands to a glass-enclosed porch, and the bistro-style S/T for a more casual alternative. Themed wine dinners are hosted every Monday evening, occasions described as “a modern interpretation of the Gilded Age dinner party,” and family-style barbecues accompanied by live jazz are offered Wednesday night from late June through early September. Amenities include an outdoor heated pool, a massage room, a tennis court and a gym.
