  • Beautiful spot on Otsego Lk, NY and very interesting tour of mansion in process of restoration to 1830s. Worth a visit!
  • The views alone were well worth the visit. Hyde Hall is an old house sitting on the edge of the lake that is partially restored. The group that runs the tours are in the process of restoring the rest of the house. The tour was fantastic and our guide really made history come alive for us.
  • Beautiful and recommend touring this haunted large home with beautiful scenery located in glimmerglass.state park, their is another entrance way without paying $7 to get in park
  • Very interesting! Great tour. Beautiful grounds.
  • August 2013, I hiked the Sleeping Lion Trail in Glimmerglass State Park, around Otsego lake with inspired James Fennimore Cooper. The trail starts and ends near Hyde Hall. Don't be dissuaded by the someone 'ugly' look of the main building... it was designed by a renowned Civic Architect and was quite the rage at the time. The history of the residents is interesting with ties to Hyde Family, Cooper Family and the Singer / Clarke famliy. One wife of the Clarkes was a Titanic Survival, the many George's each had unique personalities on the estate until the State of NY took the building by emminent domain to build the park. Worth the trip. and the park is lovely. This home had it all, hiking in mountains, parties in the ball room, and lake view, etc.
