  • One of my all-time favorite places in one of my all-time favorite towns. My idea of a whimsical dream house with all the crooked corners and gables. The house would be nice-sized for me to live in without being overly huge. The grounds outside are perfect for picnics with the blooming wisteria an added bonus. Like Irving, the occassional passing train would be annoying. Gift shop has loads of wonderful goodies. The only unfortunate thing is that overnight stays aren't allowed on the grounds.
  • Professional and personable tour guide very knowledgeable about the house, topic and period of time of the history. Recommended to all. Wonderful staff at the gift shop.
  • Great tour of an interesting home. Our tour guide was great. Lots of interesting information on the life and home of a great American author. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Wow. Guide was so knowledgeable and pleasent. The history was something to be shared. Just go!
  • Great historic location, guided tour is interesting and informative. Good view on the Hudson, plenty to see.
