I love all things Vanderbilt and was so excited to finally find a Vanderbilt home where you can actually stay! I was not disappointed. The mansion has a long history and is beautifully restored. I made reservations online with no trouble at all. I specified that I wanted a bathroom in my room since I know lots of B&Bs have shared bathrooms. Elm Court does have some of these rooms, so specify if you want your own bathroom. I cannot express how much I loved this place!! Les was our host & he was great. We talked a lot about the history of the house and toured most of it too. There are tons of places to walk on the grounds & it's all so scenic. It's close to the villages of Lenox, Stockbridge & Lee, so that's convenient. We only stayed one night (mid-week getaway!), had a nice breakfast the next morning & dawdled as long as we possibly could. The rooms are gorgeous & clean. Did I leave anything out? Oh yeah - I want to move in!!!
