1941. Their story is fascinating and the house and its decor and furnishings and the gorgeous setting and landscape were worth the almost three hours we spent there. If you are interested in art, architecture, and landscape gardens and, by the way, a small window into the life of the very rich and privileged in the 1930's-'40's through old films... More

My wife and I visited FMHS in early August 2016. I hadn't read the brochure carefully and was expecting to see another grand house ("cottage") of the 1880s. Instead, the first treat was a modernist house and studio of two artists, George Morris and Suzy Frelinghuysen. The house was designed in part by Morris (with the aid of an architect)... More

The art collection alone of this couple is worth the visit. A conceptual home descriptive of the artistic sensibilities of an interesting couple.

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
