Rich with original details throughout, The Kemble is a visual feast with a majestic entry hall and winding staircase with crystal chandelier above along with gathering areas, media/parlor room and dining room with ornate crown molding and exquisitely carved wood fireplace mantels. Each of the 13 bedrooms has been tastefully renovated with historical design in mind, all with stunning en suite baths and fireplaces. 

A full commercial kitchen and the gorgeous, stately Green Room Bar were created as part of the massive renovation which are ideal for large family gatherings, or for Inn guests. Since 1993 this home, built in 1881 by U.S. Secretary of State, Frederick Frelinghuysen, has operated as a full service Inn with 13 bedrooms and 13.5 baths. Purchased in 2010 by its current owner, the Kemble has undergone a $2 million top to bottom renovation which included replacing all systems, cosmetics and major additions. Previously, in the 1940's the house was donated to the Lenox school for boys and was used as a dormitory for many years. Thereafter until 1993 it served as a place of business as an antique store, and real estate office among others.
