Cranwell Spa and Golf Resort is as rich in history as it is with hospitality. Over the years, the historic resort has played host to the likes of Harriet Beecher Stowe, Oliver Wendell Holmes, the Vanderbilts, and President William McKinley. Standing atop Blossom Hill, the hotel's highest point, it is easy to imagine the Reverend Ward Beecher, the original owner and the brother of Harriet Beecher Stowe, marveling "From here I can see the very hills of Heaven."

The history of Cranwell Spa and Golf Resort is also entwined with many stories of The Gilded Age, a highly opulent period between 1880 and 1920. The Wyndhurst Mansion was constructed then and the era's vision of rural splendor is the source of the exceptional beauty still reveled in today. The Tudor-style mansion, boasting elegant interiors including the richly decorated Great Hall with dark, wood paneling and French tapestries, is the centerpiece of the 380-acre estate with its extraordinary views of the Berkshires.

A championship 18-hole golf course surrounds the structure. The resort is comprised of the mansion, four unique guestroom dwellings, cottages suites and townhouses. The estate’s overall beauty becomes less surprising once its pedigree is revealed: The landscape was designed by renowned landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted—the same man responsible for Central Park. A 35,000-square-foot full-service spa, an expansive fitness center and three on-site restaurants reinforce the epic distinctions of Cranwell Spa and Golf Resort.
