I read one of Edith Wharton's novels before we toured The Mount, so I had a feeling and a little understanding about the author. The grounds are quite lovely and the home is large but comfortable. Wharton designed the layout. I particularly liked the the sitting room, which is adjacent to the master bedroom. The dining room has a lot of eastern and southern light and has wonderful views. I can imagine a luncheon in this room would be delightful!
This was a very interesting tour.
