It was nice to see the house but very limiting. The artists themselves where not my favorite modern art style. The house itself seems a very impractical design. I found myself drawn to the parents mansion on the hill more. It is nice that they have artists painting and sharing outside.

What an amazing place to visit and tour! The surrounding grounds are gorgeous. This former home of Suzy Frelinghuysen and George Morris is a true American gem. The married couple (artists themselves) became involved in promoting, developing and collecting abstract art in the 1930s-40s. At one time, the two were very well-known, but today, not so much. So for me,... More

My nephew pointed the way on our visit to the Berkshires to this artists' home and we found it absorbing. I was vaguely familiar with Morris but not Frelinghuysen. Our guide was informative and excellent in guiding us through the house and artworks. (She was patient with our questions.) If you don't have the time to see the film when... More

So it's true but neither of us knew anything about either of the two artists from this house, but somehow we did expect a little bit more based on other reviews that we read. It wasn't very exciting it wasn't very interesting and our host wasn't very welcoming or even very nice

This house and studio tour was very interesting. You tour the house escorted by a docent who is quite knowledgeable about the Frelinghuysens. You can also walk around the very pretty gardens. Parking is a ways away from the actual touring spot. This may be interesting for older children as well as adults. There's a shuttle that will take you... More

This museum is an amazing little gem in a 1940's Bauhaus style house located in Lenox Massachusetts right near the grounds of Tanglewood. The collection in the house mostly consists of George and Suzy's works but other master works are scattered throughout the rooms. We went to see the house and studio but before the house tour we sat in... More

The architecture, art and furniture are a testimony to Modernism. What a great find. Well worth a visit.

While viewing the quintessential New England homes such as The Mount, you must not miss this one. Done in the Bauhaus style, it is totally different from the other homes in the area. Since the owners were also cubist artists, each detail in the home was well thought out. Take time to walk the grounds as well.

Do go both here and to the Mount, in order to see two very individual and very different approaches to style. The Bauhaus effect here contrasts with Wharton's older and more traditional taste. Here were very rich people who lived extremely well, and thought a great deal about what their interiors should look like. The living room is beautifully proportioned... More

When we think of Lenox and this part of the Berkshires, we more than likely think of beautiful old homes, wonderful small shops, Jacob's Pillow in nearby Becket, Tanglewood (of course), Edith Wharton, Norman Rockwell, Chesterwood. There is another site that is well worth seeing -- and a story well worth hearing -- that adds another dimension of understanding to... More
