While I was glad that Frelinghuysen was on our tour, not being a fan of modern, it really wasn't a favorite of mine. The tour ended with a nephew of George giving us a lesson on his art and art itself.

What a great home. The artists, though gone quite some time still seem so ever-present in their beautiful and very interesting Bauhaus style home in the Berkshires. Everything seems to remain as it was when they lived there. Recent renovations to one room was redoing...More

This was tiiiiiite! Went with my buddy's, the walk up to the house is a beautiful pathway through the trees over marble bridges. When you get in the house, you can see it was owned by eccentrics. If you love ART, you will love this!

Yes, we have accommodations for those who cannot climb stairs and have a wheelchair or walker. We access the different levels with a golf cart transport. It is ideal to call ahead to make sure enough staff are available.
