The Mount is a beautiful house (estate, gardens) and there are wonderful programs going on during the summer. I have no information about the fall or winter, but I imagine that the fall is beautiful in the Berkshires.

Didn't know anything about Edith Wharton except she wrote Age of Innocence. Really interesting tours of the house and gardens she designed taught us a great deal about her life and the times in which she lived.

I knew next to nothing about Edith Wharton, but I'm really glad we did the tour. Learned a lot, plus the mansion is utterly breathtaking. The guide was very friendly, and it was not a huge tour. Very educational and worth it.
