  • We did the Upstairs/Downstairs house tour, which is wonderful because you see the space where the families lived, as well as where their domestic help lived and worked. This is a beautiful Gothic...

  • I have been to Lyndhurst at least 15 times. I absolutely love it! Its beautiful & I enjoy learning something new every single time! Every room has something special. Definitely not for children but great for adults.
  • This is the most beautiful place in all of Tarrytown. Pay a visit to the House of Dark Shadows! The gift shop was the nicest one I've been to. And you have to show proof of vaccination before entering any buildings, which gives great piece of mind! 🖤
  • My wife and I were married here a couple of years ago. It was the most perfect and memorable experience ever. We couldn't have imagined it going any better. The rose garden was beautiful for the ceremony, the cocktail hour outside the mansion was gorgeous, and the reception near the carriage house was perfect. They have caterers and companies they work with and the entire process of touring and booking was very easy.
  • Definitely find the time and take a leisurely walk around the magnificent grounds admire the historic trees. Seeing these trees gave me a new perspective on them and if possible book a house tour. Weekend's only. Truly a gem.
  • Love this place.. Admission goes back to the historical fund to keep the place beautiful and running so others can learn the history and walk through time.. PS. They also have weddings and reception areas.
