About The Mount

The Mount is Edith Wharton's historic home. It is one of the prized locations in the Berkshires due to its historical impact and the beautiful gardens sprawling across the property. Visitors to The Mount can go inside Wharton's house and enjoy the engaging museum inside to learn more about this historical location. Then, they can traverse the grounds, walking through maintained garden pathways with unique plants at every turn. These gardens are a spectacle, but the songbirds and pollinators they create habitats for are a hidden bonus of this landscape.

Visitors to The Mount can enjoy discovering the area's beauty themselves, or they can participate in any of the numerous programs and activities that The Mount offers. Author talks, ghost tours, and museum tours are just a few of the events that occur here. Some of these events include programs and concerts for children, which make The Mount a family-friendly destination for all sorts of activities in Western Massachusetts. Various shows also take place at The Mount, adding to the rich musical culture in Lenox, with Tanglewood—the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra—only a short drive away.
