We are so fortunate in the Berkshires and The Inn at Stockbridge next to Lenox. to have many beautiful estates that are open to the public. The Mount, the home of Edith Wharton is just one of these palatial estates. Besides being an estate the mount offers a variety of programs. I am indeed fortunate to have an Edith Wharton scholar in my book group, Irene Goodman Price. Irene will be leading a lecture on the friendship of Edith Wharton and Anna Bahlmann: Companions for Forty-Two Years . I will make sure to attend this event. this and the entire lecture series promises to be very enlightening.
Plan a visit to the Inn, visit the Mount and attend one of the many programs that the Mount offers.
In 1995, Alice and Len Schiller purchased the Inn, moving from Maplewood New Jersey and making Stockbridge their home. Alice and Len built the cottage house in 1997 and the barn in 2001. They continue to make improvements to the Inn in order to enhance their guests' experience.
