Still needs more work to be in comparison with some of the other attractions in the area. The gardens are pretty when in full bloom.

“A Hidden Treasure”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2012

This beautiful mansion, once home to Edith Wharton, is worth seeking out. The grounds are simply beautiful and the house is elegant and filled with treasures. You can have a light meal on the terrace in good weather.

“Enjoyed the visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2012

Happened upon this nice estate in Mass. Edith Wharton's estate and gardens which have been nicely restored. The gardens are likely a shadow of what they were in the early 1900's, but lovely still. The restored estate was nicely done and this was a nice afternoon visit.
