Thar she blows!
I showed up at Arrowhead in late afternoon on a beautiful autumn day, and I was the only person on my particular "tour." Which, during these viral times, was a boon. The history of the house (and barn and grounds) is so interesting. As some other visitor said in his/her review, much of the furnishings is not original, but it IS of the period, so the vibe is very good. And frankly, just being able to stand there in the room where Melville wrote "Moby-Dick" and look out the window he looked out ... that was plenty enough for me! Lovely staff, nice little gift shop ... and a very evocative visit for literary history folks.

Fitting Tribute to a Literary Genius

Herman Melville’s Arrowhead estate is a modest property in a beautiful setting. Our guide Louise did an excellent job of bringing Melville’s personal saga and literary heritage to life. I emerged with a much better appreciation for this writer’s life and works.

A nice visit for a Melville fan
There's not too much to the house, and of what is there, not much is original. However, if you're a fan, it's a good place to visit, and especially to see the view of Greylock from his writing desk. You get a nice overview of his life. The grounds are lovely, but I found a tick on me after a very quick step onto the meadows, so beware. We spent about an hour there, plenty of parking. On a Saturday morning we were the only ones on the tour. If you're not a Melville fan, I'd remove a star from the rating.

More Than Literary History
We were fortunate to visit Arrowhead recently. Only two others besides my husband and I were on the tour. I confess I have never read Moby Dick and knew relatively little about Melville. This tour was very informative and we were able to ask questions as it progressed. Our guide was engaging. The house is not a sprawling mansion but a stately home. The mountain views are exceptional. Be aware the second story of the house is not handicap accessible. There is a small gift shop and restrooms near the parking area, as well as picnic tables. There are also walking trails. The tour fee was reasonable.

Beautiful trails and grounds
We went to hike the property as the day we visited there were no tours of the house. Stunning views of the mountains, the inspiration of Moby Dick.

A Must See!
If you are a fan of Herman Melville's writings, you don't want to miss touring his former home. This museum, though, would interest almost anyone. Many interesting artifacts and photographs from Melville's life are on display. From his actual desk, the view of Mt. Greylock, so important to him, can be viewed and appreciated.

On my visit, I was lucky enough to have Jana Laiz, the writer in residence conduct my tour. She was absolutely marvelous,well-versed in everything Melville, delivering fascinating information in a clear and

Literary pilgrimage

If you care about Moby Dick at all, come visit the house where Melville wrote it. The tour give Melville’s biography, including a description of his wild whaling years, and then you go through his modest, charming home, including the guest room where Nathaniel Hawthorne slept, and the desk on which Moby Dick was written, looking out into Mount Greylock. There is a pretty, easy trail out back, and a barn housing temporary exhibitions. This past year they did a read along of Moby Dick for Melville’s birthday, which was surprisingly fun. The gift shop was editions of Melville’s works, biographies, criticism, and “what would Queequeg do?” shirts. You can combine Arrowhead with Edith Wharton’s The Mount Down the road for a day of idyllic literary havens.

A great museum
Visited in August 2018 and loved it. (I indicated August 2019 because the system requires a date and the selection is limited!). This is a house in which Melville lived in the mid-1800s. You can go into his office and even see the view of a nearby mountain that is said to have inspired Moby Dick, Mount Greylock.

An Unexpected Gem
We found our tour of Arrowhead to be an unexpectedly rewarding experience. Reading the reviews of those who have visited before, however, it looks like not everyone found it so. The extent to which people enjoyed their tour seems to depend largely on the talents of whichever tour guide they drew. Well, our guide, Francine, was excellent. In our years of retirement we have toured many Eighteenth and Nineteenth Century houses, and she pointed out some architectural aspects of this type of dwelling which had never been explained to us before. She also delivered her information with just the right blend of humor and enlightenment.
The gift shop has some appealing items, and is not as pricey as are most shops of this type.
Even though I've been a student of English Literature, I'm not a fan of Melville's work. But taking this tour made him come alive for me and increased my respect for him quite a bit. I was inspired enough to watch the 1958 movie version of "Moby Dick", and I may even go back and re-read the book. (I think "Billy Budd" is a better choice, though.)

Interesting historical tidbits
You get a good deal of info about Melville's life and how Moby Dick became a classic. We found it a very interesting little tour and enjoyed it very much. Our guide, Jana, was very knowledgeable and entertaining.
