We took the tour and our guide was great... Ann with the gray hair and glasses! It was obvious she was into her job and the entire Wharton experience. The gardens and paths were splendid and the gardens gorgeous!

A beautiful house in a superb setting of gardens and woods. The history of the house and of Edith Wharton is really fascinating.

Knowledgeable tour guide, who was very friendly and included lots of detail while still answering questions. A lovely house and grounds, and nice you can either take the tour OR do the walk yourself.

Great walk outside and within the building. I suggest the guided tour of the home. Edith Wharton lived a verrrryyy interesting life. The guides are knowledgeable and inject humor respectfully. I recommend a visit even if you're not a fan of Edith Wharton's work.

I have been fortunate to have visited Edith Warton's home in Newport so we thought we would visit this one as well. The home is wonderful, easy to live in, the staff was great and knowledgeable. The grounds and that history was remarkable.

Although from money and part of Gilded Age the house showed that Edith Wharton used her money to spread some good to others. Although knew of her as a writer didn't realise how prolific she was. Grounds and waljs adds to the visit

If you are interested in gardens, architecture and American literary history, this is well worth the time. The Mount, Edith Wharton’s home, has a wonderful history that is quintessential Berkshire’s. Tours of the home are offered on the hour. But garden tours are offered on...More
