I thought perhaps the pumpkin show might be a tad pricey--- once I arrived, I felt totally different. It was really exceptional. The amount of work that went into those displays, lighting the paths, and especially the house decor was worth it. I appreciated the clear communication after I purchased my ticket.

Beautiful turn of the century home for the wealthy with well manicured grounds and gardens. The centerpiece for the outdoor space is the unique fountain/staircase designed and built in the 1930’s. The home is currently closed to visitors due to the virus and you must reserve a parking space and time slot ahead of your visit. We enjoyed the visit.

I came across the description of Winterlights randomly and we decided to give it a try. It is so worth it! These lights are amazing - just gorgeous and they obviously took an incredible amount of time to set up. If you are debating between Winterlights and Bright Nights (in Springfield), you won't regret making the effort to go to Naumkeag! I'm looking forward to visiting Naumkeag again in the warmer weather!

My husband and I were visiting family and we decided to tour Naumkeag. The house was designed by Stanford White (one of his earliest commissions) with surrounding gardens that were designed & created over 30 yrs ago. The house's furnishings are all original. It was a hot day and the mansion has no air conditioning and because of the coronavirus restrictions, only part of the first floor was open. They have a tiny gift shop. To see the gardens does require a lot of walking on carefully created paths.

Beautiful flowers and estate, unmatched location. Customer service was not so good, however. A rude employee ignored social distancing and came up to me and grabbed a bouquet of flowers out of my arms, ones that I had mistakenly thought were for sale. Rather than respectfully ask me to return them to the bucket and let me know they were not for sale, she snatched them away and said they were pre-paid only and belonged to other people. Was a sad little moment on Mother's Day.

We attended an event here "date night at Naumkeag", it was awesome! The event happened right at sunset, it was so beautiful. Watching the sunset over the mountains, watching the cows graze below, while sitting in a glorious garden and having a picnic - really was the best. If you have a chance to attend one of these events I would recommend it.

We enjoyed touring the grounds and first floor of the property during the seasonal pumpkin show. The show was very well organized and advance tickets required. Ample parking. The grounds are beautiful and we enjoyed the sunset. The view is breathtaking. The house was decorated for the season. Would like to return for a regular tour in the future. An amazing example of a Berkshire mansion

We went for the tulip and daffodil festival; on May 16, it was a bit late - most of the daffs were spent (as expected), but many of the tulips were near the end, too. However, there were still plenty of lovely flowers to be seen. It was lovely, not spectacular. I was pleasantly surprised that we could enter the first floor of the house; this was also nice but not incredible. The walk through the grounds and first floor took us maybe 45 minutes, with lots of stops to take pictures. We combined the trip with a visit to Ventfort Hall, just 10 minutes away.

Very disappointed after reading the other reviews. Thought the house was interesting but only the first floor is open. No docent lead tours which might have made this more interesting. Really just a big house built by some rich person with nothing special to contribute. Came late summer. Might have enjoyed the gardens more at a different time. Enjoyed the blue steps

After spending the morning at The Mount, we stopped here trying to get a quick view without digging in. The front wall and back of the 1886 mansion are in full view but the tall tress prevent any further view of the house or gardens.
Will need to return when we have the time to justify the $20 each admission.
