Berkshires Sights


Ventfort Hall Mansion and Gilded Age Museum

Ventfort Hall Mansion and Gilded Age Museum Review

Built in 1893, Ventfort Hall was the summer "cottage" of Sarah Morgan, the sister of financier J.P. Morgan. Lively tours offer a peek into the lifestyles of Lenox's superrich "cottage class." Although the property is being restored, the many rooms that are open reveal the original stained-glass windows and hand-carved woodwork. The museum has rotating exhibits that explore the role of Lenox and the Berkshires as the era's definitive mountain retreat. Victorian high tea is among the highlights.
