Beautiful yet understated old home. We came to walk the gardens but ended up touring the house as well and glad we did. You do get a sense of experiencing the home much like the Choates did.

Very interesting and informative tour of the house and beautiful gardens that belonged to the Choate family. Fun little facts about their summer home excellently guided by David, the house manager. Small fee.

Beautiful home that feels intimate despite its size. Simply wonderful, funny and knowledgeable tour guide. Naumkeag is not as well known as nearby Chesterwood or The Mount, but worth seeking out. The gardens are a bonus, so try to go on a good weather day.

This is a Victorian estate with beautiful well kept gardens and landscape. It was well worth our 2 hour drive to see it. Tours of the ornate home also available.

Interesting question because these old houses from the nineteenth century involve old technology for cooking. It happens that the kitchen was removed to be part of the basement visitors center. The only part left is a... More
