(LENOX, Mass.) – The historic ballroom housed in the 1897 Gilded Age Mansion at Cranwell Resort, Spa and Golf Club recently received a complete makeover. One of the largest banquet facilities in Berkshire County, the elegant ballroom is the only one of its kind that can accommodate up to 225 for dinner and dancing.
The 3,025-square-foot ballroom was completely renovated to complement the natural surroundings of the Berkshires. Dramatic columns of drapery framing the 12-foot windows draw the eye to architectural details and panoramic views. The new carpet design incorporates modernized organic forms in rich tones of brown, gold, and silver-blue. Chandeliers adorned with strings of crystals complement the new cove-lit, dimmer controlled ceiling, which is 16 feet high. As the sun sets, the elegant rooms fills with the sparkle of crystal, creating a majestic experience.
“The new ballroom will greatly enhance the mountain views in any season,“ says general manager Carl Pratt. “We want to remain the area’s year-round premier wedding and conference venue and believe this renovation will leave a lasting impression on all our guests attending an event at Cranwell Resort.”
Cranwell is located just over two hours from New York City and Boston in the historic New England village of Lenox, Massachusetts. This award-winning resort features 114 distinctive guest rooms and suites, an 18-hole Championship golf course set on 380 hilltop acres, and is home to one of the largest resort Spas in the Northeast. With three restaurants and spacious banquet rooms, Cranwell also hosts numerous year-round conferences, weddings and social events.
