While in Lenox last week we took the tour of this majestic summer home of the Morgan family. Rick was very informative and answered our many questions on the (approx.) one-hour tour. This is a most lovely old place that is being slowly restored to its former glory. it is reminiscent of the mansions in Newport. Please take the tour... More

The woman giving the tour was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the home and had great pictures depicting the different stages of the restoration process.

My friend and I visited and were guided around by a young lady. There are aspects of the house that have been renovated well but still some work to do. I would recommend visiting during the warmer months as it was incredibly cold in the house. The ladies toilets had some heating but that was all. Nice gift shop and... More

This is a very unusual historic mansion because it' still renovating and just a first floor is available to see. Actually a second floor is available too, but there aren't historic rooms. Regardless it's not cheap experience, I recommended it. It's very beautiful.

This historic mansion is still being renovated so there are not that many rooms available to see. However, the tour guides were really enthusiastic and knowledgeable.

It is rare that you get to view anything that is not finished. This was fascinating to see the process. Enjoyed the "little ladies " collection. They are most fortunate to have this collection available for display.

A frequent visitor of the lovely Berkshires, I decided to tour Ventfort Hall this past weekend. For those of you who are looking for a fully restored house you will not find it here as the house and grounds are still very much a work in progress. For me, that was fascinating and what made it a bit different than... More

Our docent, a well-informed mature woman, was just superb. Our tour lasted about 90 minutes and was exceptional. I especially appreciate that there were several opportunities to take a seat and listen as she shared the history of the Morgan family and Ventfort Hall. The history of Sarah Morgan isn't all that exceptional, there are virtually no remaining family furnishings... More

Like all mansions, it has interesting stories but I do not think it is worth $15 per person. The tour was less than an hour.
