Learned a lot from the tour. The place is immaculate. Most of it is a reproduction. The gardens are lovely.

Our guide, Elrik, provided a wonderful tour of the Mount, filled with memorable stories. The grounds are spectacular and we really enjoyed learning about Edith Wharton's life and career, as well as the history of the property. A must-see when visiting the Berkshires.
