Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Whether you are interested in art and design, art history, architecture or lifestyle, our 46 acre estate right next to Tanglewood is discovered by more and more visitors to the Berkshires. Please come back!

Our guide was impressively knowledgeable and covered a great deal of information while leading us through the house and finally studio. The architecture is unique, but is showing its age and has deteriorated. Most rooms are original to the owners' taste and belongings.More

Talent, but not genius. Still, they gave it everything they had - and they had sufficient money to create this truly unique space. A glimpse into the elite American art milieu of the mid 20th century.

Your descriptive review addresses the many facets of the experience of the tour. It is wonderful to know that you appreciated the information on the backs of the Cubist masterpieces displayed front and back this season, which tell their stories.

Yes, we have accommodations for those who cannot climb stairs and have a wheelchair or walker. We access the different levels with a golf cart transport. It is ideal to call ahead to make sure enough staff are available.
