  • Nice little mansion tour without having to travel far from the area. Plan to spend between 60 to 120 minutes. Do listen to the audio commentary by scanning QR codes at the entrance to each room. When we went, February 2022, only about half the rooms were renovated and open to the public. The larger rooms were renovated, the smaller ones were pending. Only the main and second floors were open. As with attractions in the area - I thought tickets were overpriced, particularly when compared to the significantly larger and better restored mansions in Newport, RI.
  • Within walking distance from downtown Lenox, MA this is a great find. The ornate carvings and detail work is beautiful. And the work they've done to dress up the place for the holiday is fun to see. There is a lot of information about the family, and the staff was super friendly. We just missed getting to see a reading of a Christmas carol by a relative of charles Dickens followed by tea. We will be back to see what else has been restored. I'm particularly interested in the grounds and gardens once they get to that stage of the project. Very cool house.
