“My Favorite Attraction of All Time.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Naumkeag has such an air of tranquility that it seems to be a holy place; I guess it is a holy land for nature lovers. When I get old and retire, I think I’ll convince my neighbors that I am crazy by building a replica of the iconic steps and water feature from this place in my back yard.

I came back to write this review although I haven't been to Naumkeag in a couple years because I found myself wondering where I'd got if I could go back to any of the places I've been, and this is it!

“Naumkeag, worth a visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Naumkeag is a great site and worth inclusion in any trip through the Berkshires. We greatly enjoyed the guided tour of the house and gardens. Not quite Newport but certainly a trip to the gilded age.

“Don't Miss This Special Historic House & Garden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Excellent guide at an historic house in a gorgeous mountain setting overlooking the Berkshire village of Stockbridge. Collections of Chinese Export Porcelain, needlework and antique furniture from several periods as well as the philanthropic and international contributions of the Choate family made this a fascinating tour. World famous gardens were beautiful even this late in the season, showcasing artifacts collected by the family in China. What a delightful and worthwhile visit.
