The house is very interesting and tours are often conducted by family members which adds great depth. The original owners were wealthy collectors of the modern art period (think Picasso, Miro ,Juan Gris) as well as artists in their own right. Surprises in every room and at every turn. Lovely location and very friendly reception. While not as popular as... More

When we decided to spend the WE in the Berkshire we didn't know about this House. The possibility to visit such a "real house" where two great artist live and work is exceptional: architecture, furniture, painting, sculpture... We were lucky to have Kenny nephew of the artist as a guide. It is going to stay one of our best experience... More

My husband and I travel the country visiting homes and public buildings designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. While FLLW was at odds with the Bauhaus movement in the US, this building can be appreciated for its innovation and artistic style. Complimenting the architecture, is the spectacular art work--Picasso, Miro, Juan Gris--in addition to that of the George Morris and Suzy... More

Rare peak int the art scene from the 30 to the 60's A well informed docent gave us a great education into these little takes about artists. The architecture was as impressive as the paintings

All it takes is an hour of your time, and you can have a meaningful visit of the International Style home and studio of the extraordinary Modernist artist couple of Suzy Frelinghuysen and George Morris. Our guide Sam was excellent, sharing engaging tidbits of biography, art history, and gossip to illuminate the underappreciated work of these artists and their strangely... More

Our tour began as soon as we parked and were whisked by golf cart up to this eclectic and intriguing house. Our guide Drew was kind and knowledgeable and we were astounded at the collection and architecture. This is a hidden treasure and well worth the trip, and gives you an amazing glimpse of a Gatsby-like couple who cared deeply... More
