Naumkeag is the former country estate of noted New York City lawyer Joseph Hodges Choate and Caroline Dutcher Sterling Choate, located at 5 Prospect Hill Road, Stockbridge, Massachusetts.

  • Garden tour was very informative. Lots of stories. Wish they did a little more for the tour of house. Gardens were beautiful! Small parking lot need to go slow on road around corners.. might want to recommend a sign around there. Great staff around to ask questions but not much more than question answered. Nice upkeep
  • We have been to the Berkshires several time but somehow missed this gem. We shared a charcuterie plate while overlooking the grounds before entering and touring the mansion. We also were sure to tour the lovely gardens and terraces that make up this little piece of heaven. Well worth the cost of admission to experience and learn the history of this site. Enjoy your experience!
