Life House announces The Lenox Collection

The Dewey

US: Three boutique properties in downtown Lenox are reopening under The Lenox Collection, operated by Life House and owned by 388 Ventures.

388 Ventures acquired the properties in 2021 and appointed Life House to lead the redesign and branding, as well as oversee all hotel and F&B operations.

Of the three sites is The Whitlock, originally built in 1711 by farmer John Whitlock who turned a two-bedroom farmhouse into an inn for stagecoach travellers. A new 66-seat restaurant and bar, Ophelia’s, will serve fame-to-table cuisine.

Located in the centre of Lenox is The Constance, built in 1825 as The Williams Tavern. It was purchased in the 1880s by English businessman Frederick Constance Peters, who turned the property into lodging for owners of Lenox’s Gilded Age estates.

Extensive renovations to restore The Constance have been carried out.

On the north side of Lenox is The Dewey, originally built by Israel Dewey, a founding member of the Continental Congress Committee. The property has had many owners since.

388 Ventures invests primarily in lifestyle boutique products in the upper-upscale and luxury segments. The real estate investment firm focuses on regional leisure destinations across the US.

Life House operates nearly 60 hotels across North America. The company was founded in 2017 and is backed by institutional venture and private equity investors.
