    A Great American House Designed by A Great American Writer

    A day at The Mount is an opportunity to experience the beauty and splendor of Edith Wharton’s beloved country estate. There is so much to do! 

     To tell the stories of The Mount we offer tours of the house and gardens, a Backstairs Tour, and our popular Ghost Tour. There are no velvet ropes and stanchions, instead we invite our visitors to sit and interact with the rooms. Interpretive exhibits throughout the house explore Wharton’s life, her humanitarian efforts, literary legacy, and lives of the servants. 

  • The Mount is located in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts. We are down the road from Tanglewood in Lenox, the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, and a scenic 30 minute drive from Mass MoCA in North Adams.
