This sight was exquisite-- Bauhaus home stocked with striking abstract art collection described by knowledgeable, articulate guides and a free art lesson thrown in at the end. Plus we were able to walk through the gardens and the pond. To get to the house, there is a pleasant walk on a path through the woods (1/3 mile) but for those... More

Interesting tour of home that took not much time. More bang for your buck at the Mount-Edith Whartons home and gardens. The tour guide Kerry was well spoken and informative.

We might not have known to stop here were it not for my mother-in-law's tip, but we are glad we did! From the parking lot, it is a 1/3 of a mile up a slight hill to the house. Golf carts are available for those who can't make the walk. We made the walk both ways with our 2 and... More

Two American Abstract artists from very rich families created their studios on George Morris's family summer retreat [49 acres] in Lenox. The hilltop location gives sweeping valley views. The Bauhaus home was built around the studio when Frelinghuysen [former opera singer, too] and Morris decided to live here full time. The house is awash with their [mostly his, but one... More

What a undiscovered jewel! A new Berkshires treasure to take our guests to visit. We were the last visitors of the season last October to this unique abstract art museum and studio and home to a most intriguing couple. Suzy and George were WAY ahead of their time, exploring new expressions of all kinds of art - strolling around the... More

The house is very interesting and tours are often conducted by family members which adds great depth. The original owners were wealthy collectors of the modern art period (think Picasso, Miro ,Juan Gris) as well as artists in their own right. Surprises in every room and at every turn. Lovely location and very friendly reception. While not as popular as... More

When we decided to spend the WE in the Berkshire we didn't know about this House. The possibility to visit such a "real house" where two great artist live and work is exceptional: architecture, furniture, painting, sculpture... We were lucky to have Kenny nephew of the artist as a guide. It is going to stay one of our best experience... More

Lovely setting, another take on early modern art.. worth a visit. Well conceived modernist buidling in the international style. Sits nicely in it's more traditional landscape.

My husband and I travel the country visiting homes and public buildings designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. While FLLW was at odds with the Bauhaus movement in the US, this building can be appreciated for its innovation and artistic style. Complimenting the architecture, is the spectacular art work--Picasso, Miro, Juan Gris--in addition to that of the George Morris and Suzy... More
