Absolutely breathtaking revival of gardens and house so worth a visit. We were given a walking tour of house included with price of admission $15.00 with a wonderful guide and then left to explore the views and gardens of which were stunning.

Just off the main drag in Stockbridge, MA, is the estate garden know as Naumkeag. The property is owned by the Trustees of Reservations who are in the process of renovating some of the property. The guided tour of the house is excellent, very complete. The guide emphasized that everything in the home is original, and that the builder, a... More

Gorgeous setting and gardens, this is a place to linger on a lovely day. The house tour will describe the lifestyle of the Choate family and their lifestyle. A lovely way to while away a summer's afternoon. Have a snack from the cafe/store and sit awhile!

The gardens were beautiful and the guide was very knowledgeable. Well-maintained, lovely house and gardens. The only complaint that I have is that it is not really handicapped accessible, even to see the first floor. A member of our party had a scooter for mobility and knew she wouldn't be able to see the upper floor but the ground floor... More

Highly recommend the visit. Everything in the house is original. The last owner left everything in this house so you get to see what life was like back then. The guided tour was very interesting. You are allowed to take pictures as long as you don't use the flash. The garden and the scenery is beautiful.

This was the best of the three homes/estates we toured in the Berkshires – better than the Mount and Chesterwood, and less expensive admission fee. The home is beautifully furnished with original pieces and art and our tour guide, Will, was excellent. Home was designed by Stanford White. The gardens are interesting and unusual. Don’t miss this site!

We have visited Naumkeag many times, and also did the servants quarters tour. We love the house and all the wonderful contents. The docents have all been excellent, and each puts their particular spin on the stories so there is always something new to hear. We try and walk the grounds and often head down to the adjacent cemetary which... More

Naumkeag was a great visit. We took a house tour and a garden tour and they were full of information.The location is breathtaking and they have not completed all their work. I cannot wait to go back and see the Japanese garden area when it is finished. The views are gorgeous and the grounds immaculate. You may want to stay... More

After a 3 year initiative to redo the fundamentals of the house, including a new roof of wood shingles on steep inclines, a redesign of the gardens and a refreshing upgrade of the quality of the visitor experience, Naumkeg is a sure bet this summer.
