  • Beautiful grounds. Nice day stroll through the woods, on the paved pathways, through the garden, and even down to the river. Plenty of grass areas to have a picnic or sun bathe. There are also picnic tables. Pet friendly too! Amazing views.
  • The mansion is nice to tour, and the grounds are even more spectacular! From the bridge that spans the creek at the entryway, to the gardens, and the view overlooking the Hudson River, it is gorgeous. I've visited many times and try to get back once a year. Highly recommend visiting in the fall!
  • Beautiful house and grounds full of history and charm. The guided tour is a must to truly understand the people and times they lived in. Dmitri was incredibly knowledgeable and funny too. A great guide and place to visit.
  • I love visiting places like this to see what life was like back in the "old days." Truly amazing is all I can say. The house & grounds are beautiful.
  • A great place for a picnic. Just remember that it closes at sunset. The mansion is currently under construction but is still open for tours.
