The mansion is an interesting place to visit. One of the few attractions open year round. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. Parts of the restoration have not yet been completed and it is an interesting juxtaposition of finished and non-finished parts of the restoration

While this Gilded Age cottage has beautiful bones, she's in need of a lot more restoration before it's really worth a visit. We tour a lot of these types of places and though I give huge kudos to the staff for the labor of love...More

Most if not all of the great houses in this area are closed in the winter, so we were happy to find that Ventfort is open and heated (mostly)! The house is a work in progress and its story is very interesting. Our guide, a...More

If you thought you had to go to Newport to tour the mansions-think again. The rich and famous also liked to visit the Berkshires.

Renovation on the interior is still undergoing renovation, but nevertheless it is a beautiful building set on lovely grounds. Many of their windows are of stained glass giving a somewhat gloomy mood to the interior.

We had high hopes of the museum but it was so disappointing. It is clear that it is run on a shoestring and the owners are trying to bring in events such as weddings to try to raise funds. It's ok that none of the...More

HI there. I'd like to know whether the museum is planning lectures or similar educational events for June 14 & 15. My extended family is staying in the area for those days. My aged parents are educationally oriented, & to put a little kink in the works, my dad is losing his hearing. There will be a good age range among us, from young adult to elderly.
