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.

Perhaps it was the perfect Autumn evening coupled with the stellar jazz ensemble that played under a massive and majestic oak tree while we sipped fine wines and local spirits they served, or the exquisite and diverse gardens that overlook a glorious valley and mountain...More

Very close to The Red Lion Inn. A tour guide must lead groups through the home, but you can roam the beautiful gardens.

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
