If you have a passion for local Berkshire history this is one place you need to visit. Ventfort Hall not only has a past of its own, within its walls is a wealth of information regarding a time in history when opulence reigned supreme for many in the town of Lenox. Considering the cost to build Ventfort Hall was just... More

It was a yewr ago, but my wife and I visited The Ventnor Hall Mansion in Lenox on Walker Street, about a two minute walk from Lenox center. we found it surprisingly interesting, and a good tour for the whole family.

Went here for a downtown abbey event 2 years ago. We were there in December and the hall was decorated for Christmas. The upstairs at that time were not renovated and open for guests. The downstairs was very nice and looked like it would have looked at the time it was built. They did use this house for the movie... More

And our tour guide, Linda, did just that. She obviously loves Ventford and enjoys telling the history of the property, including all the many owners, changes in the mansion over the year and the current restoration. A delightful way to spend 1-2 hours. It will be interesting to return in the future as more of the mansion is restored. At... More

I'm a Berkshire County resident and must admit I didn't know much anything about Ventfort Hall, but decided it would be a nice attraction to see with my teenage children on this nice summer day. I'm not particularly familiar with the guilded age, but as soon as you step into the front door I fell in love with this home.... More

The mansion was really fun to see and the tour guide was very kind. If you have some time to spare, for sure worth it. They do a great job restoring the house.

The mansion is a work in progress but with a little imagination and the pictures of how it once looked it is well worth touring. The tour guide was informative and the house is amazing but so much of it is closed off offering only a limited amount of rooms that can be viewed.There is one room just full of... More

Hi Robert, Thank you for your positive review. We work very hard with volunteers and a small part time staff to create a good experience for our guests. Our restoration efforts are ongoing. Our exhibit of the dolls in period clothing has left the museum. I am happy you had an opportunity to see them. More

We were lucky enough to be the only couple on a tour with a terrific guide. This mansion was a complete wreck. All the original furnishings are gone and much of the original fixtures were stolen or damaged over the years. The restoration that has been done so far is impressive. Much more to be done, but they will get... More
