Becky, Such a great article! Naumkeg and the Mount are so beautiful. Another great east coast property is the Crane's Estate in Ipswich Mass. Can't wait to check out some of the others on your list!

@Heartwood Kitchens, Crane's was one of my grandfather's favorites. I have always wanted to visit but haven't made it yet. The Trustees of the Reservation is such a great organization. My parents live in Hingham MA and we all love World's End, another one of their sites.

Sorry I saw this article too late for the folks who took the opportunity to tour any of the homes, but I wanted to mention that anyone visiting Stockbridge, MA, has the chance to also visit the Norman Rockwell Museum and his studio. Hi art in real life is astonishingly beautiful. And you might get the chance to meet some of the models who volunteer at the museum. Note: Stockbridge's Main Street is the subject of one of Rockwell's most famous paintings depicting his home at the time - the upper floor of the building in the center.
