Wheatleigh, one of many Berkshire Cottages, is located on Hawthorne Road in Lenox, Massachusetts, United States. It was built by Henry H. Cook and given to his daughter, Georgie, as a wedding gift when she married Count Carlos de Heredia. Wheatleigh was designed by premier architectural firm Peabody and Stearns. Frederick Law Olmsted, who famously designed New York's Central Park, designed Wheatleigh's surrounding lands.

Wheatleigh was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1] It is now operated as a hotel.[2]
