The beauty, the calm, the history, the gardens, the dining room (!!!!): this is a stunning place. Visit here and stay in Lenox (Garden Gables) and eat in Lee (Chez Nous). The perfect trifecta.

I knew who Edith Wharton was, but knew very little about her. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and interesting. The home is beautiful with gorgeous fireplaces. Gardens are also very pretty.
