Picture yourself on a sweeping estate in the Berkshire Mountains, complete with a Gilded Age mansion and a massive flowering garden for you to explore on a sunny spring day. This picturesque daydream can be a reality for you this month at Naumkeag’s fourth annual Daffodil & Tulip Festival, open now through May 15.
Naumkeag’s 8 acres of world-renowned gardens are open throughout April and May for springtime strolls. Decorated with over 75,000 daffodils and tulips, you’ll be able to wander through the garden and the first floor of the house, which has a seasonal gift shop inside right now.
At the greenhouse’s pop-up shop, you can buy mixed bouquets and container plants, along with a pre-sale of spring bulbs. Food and refreshments are available at the estate’s snack shack.
In addition to having a public garden, Naumkeag is a historic home with a stunning view of Monument Mountain and the Berkshire Hills.
This 48-acre architectural masterpiece was built in 1884 as a summer home for a prominent New York attorney, Joseph Choate. The 44-room shingle-style home housed several generations of the Choate family until it was bequeathed to The Trustees in 1958.
Tickets for the flower festival at Naumkeag are going quickly for April and May – you can purchase yours here.
