This year while spending my annual Labor Day weekend at the Red Lion I decided to visit Naumkeag on the suggestion of The Red Lion Staff. What a referral! This beautiful estate located in the hills above Main Street in Stockbridge is fabulous and truly a hidden Garden of Eden. I took both the guided house tour and garden tour and both volunteer guides opened a door to the past offering a glimpse into a former and privelaged world few get to see today. The house is very well maintained and left the way the former Miss Mabel Choate left it upon her death. But the gardens have an interesting story as well and were truly a labor of love for Miss Choate who was active in their design and development. I am grateful to Miss Choate and the Choate family for graciously leaving this wonderful home and beautiful gardens for all to enjoy.
