We absolutely LOVE being right next door to the historic Country Club of Pittsfield, also one of the most beautiful places on earth.
We’ve had some unforgettable parties with friends here, but The Morewood was truly designed for weekend family gatherings and holidays.
We cherish breakfast on the terrace as the sun rises over the gardens, mountains, and fairways. As each season draws to a close, we eagerly anticipate the next: the rebirth of spring, the endless display of colors from the perennial beds and gardens through the summer, the most dramatic and beautiful Fall Foliage we’ve ever seen, and a virtual Winter Wonderland.
4. Of course, we love our central location, a few minutes away from everything throughout Berkshire County. In downtown Pittsfield, we have music and arts festivals, the Barrington Stage, the Colonial Theatre, Berkshire jazz concerts, and so many galleries and restaurants. We’re also a few minutes away from Tanglewood, Shakespeare & Company, and Capital Steps.
5. I bought this “Pros & Cons” pad. Works with everything. Really, try it. I objectively weighed it all. The decision we made in August of 1993 to buy the collapsing Morewood mansion was the best we’ve ever made. The Morewood is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. It’s true. I’ll lend you my pad.
Not all great homes of the Gilded Age were dazzlingly opulent palatial homes glittering with gold, sparkling with crystal. When escaping the formality of their city lives, the nouveau riche would retreat to their country homes in the mountains or by the sea. Unlike the Newport “cottages,” one immediately senses the aura of an English country manor upon entering the Morewood. The Morewood is a masterpiece of historical restoration, every room draws you in to a place where guests are treated like family. In restoring Morewood, it was critical to afford the amenities of our 21st century while not compromising its architecture and history of the National Historic Landmark home.
