(If you intend to spend time wandering the garden, you might want to put on insect repellent.) We arrived here shortly before the mansion closed for the day so we were only able to tour the gardens. They were well worth the stop! I can...More

Naumkeag is a unique property, beautifully managed by the Trustees of Reservations. The McKim, Mead & White house is a gorgeous and idiosyncratic treasure of 1880s American high style, but the real marvel are the extensive and inspired gardens that sprawl over Prospect Hill. Designed...More

Just found this hidden gem In the Berkshires . Took the guided tour wit Natalie and thoroughly enjoyed. Very lovely property with interesting history. Probably not best on a very hot day but definitely a nice place to visit while in the Berkshires

It was almost 95 when we visited. No air conditioning in house. Interesting but not fascinating house. Average furnishings, artwork, etc. Choate family wealthy but not interesting enough to be eccentric. Gardens pretty but too hot to really enjoy. Unlike some other reviewers, I would...More

We weren't planning on visiting Naumkeag - it was a last minute decision based largely on the reviews. We were so glad we took the time to do the tour of the home and walk the gardens. The view is so amazing - it's no...More

Two adults toured the Naumkeag estate, a Gilded Age mansion located on about 50 acres of land that was used as a summer home from the late 1800s until the late 1950s by the same family. Most, if not all of the furnishings, are original...More

Since the first time I saw an image of Fletcher Steele's masterpiece, the Blue Steps I've wanted to visit them. I finally got my chance and was not disappointed, though they do need a little maintenance. The 30-acre gardens around them are deceptively simple but...More

We arrived too late to tour the house but we'll do that next time because this is a place you can easily visit more than once. There is much to see. The gardens are interesting, lovely, nicely laid out and well marked. A good map...More

Naumkeag is the baronial summer home of Joseph Choate, a wealthy New York lawyer of the gilded age. Built in 1887, the 44-room house still contains its original furnishings. A genuine time warp. The guided tour is interesting and personal with a well-informed docent. There...More

Hello, there was a kitchen (as part of the guided tour) but it was very small within the house and obviously did not offer any edibles or food. They do have a small area within the visitor center (which you enter once you... More
