  • Response from the owner 11 months ago We are very sorry to hear about your negative experience last weekend. We take our customer feedback very seriously and we appreciate you taking the time to express your frustration with your visit. We want all visitors to feel welcome here and would be glad to host you at another date for a free tour. Your visit was during our opening weekend for the season, where we unexpectedly had double the usual attendance. A front-page newspaper story drove many people to visit and all tours were sold out by 11 am even though our last tour wasn't until 4 pm. We did continue to sell tickets for general admission to our flower show, but the guided tours were no longer available. As Lyndhurst has become more and more popular, we now recommend booking tours online in advance because often walk-ins cannot be accommodated. We apologize for any misunderstanding and regret that you were not able to experience the mansion to its fullest. Part of our mission at Lyndhurst is to ensure that the legacy of one of our most famed residents, philanthropist Helen Gould, is preserved and carried out. Helen welcomed people of all races and religions to Lyndhurst at a time when this was uncommon. She opened vocational schools on-site for immigrants and children to become economically independent. We are committed to carrying out her vision of Lyndhurst as an inclusive and welcoming space for everybody. In that spirit, we hope you and your wife will return and assure you that all races and identities are welcome here. I don't get this. Owner, please respond to MINE for once. Just say "hi", it would please me. But everything is great! Loved it all.
  • Beautiful historical mansion on Hudson River 😍 inside the mansion everything was decorated to Halloween. But, unfortunately, photos were prohibited. It was a real trip to 19 century, thanks a lot to a guide! We'll definitely back in spring! And wish this place can restore other objects of this fantastic mansion!
  • Really nice grounds and manor. It was our second visit, this time for the Halloween Murder Mystery - it was really good. Most of the actors were amazing. We'd highly recommend it. They had also spooky installations throughout the grounds on the may to the mansion. Plus there were some quite entertaining sculptures. Minus one star - I wish it was a bit cheaper, especially for little kids.
  • A beautiful gem of a country house tucked away in Westchester. Interesting history and lots of faux decor. The architecture is beautiful and the grounds are homey. Fun fact, two chairs are worth $500k (ask the tour guide to point them out to you).
  • Went on the tour with my wife. I needed to step out into the foyer for literally a minute. I was told if I left I would not be permitted back in and she stood there trying to collect my lanyard. Very unprofessional and not how to deal with a paying customer. We were literally 5 minutes into the tour. It was no interruption to our very small group or a problem whatsoever. She made it far more of a deal then it really was. My request easily could have been accommodated. Zero stars.
