Fun tour of the grounds with a very informative guide!! What a beautiful piece of history in the Cooperstown area. The house itself is huge and worth exploring! The grounds were gorgeous and made for the perfect fall family excursion.

We went Oct 25th 2014 at 7:30pm for a candlelight tour. Interesting stories of the home its builder the ongoing renovations and the "things" that have occurred there. Not your typical bad things happened here place but odd feelings sightings and orbs in pictures including ours. Must see in Cooperstown area even if you prefer the daylight tours.

Although we did not get to meet John, or the cat, we still enjoyed our tour very much. Our guide told us many fascinating tidbits of information about the history of the house and the different generations of family that lived there. Would like to visit every so often just to check out the progress of the renovations. My only... More

A nice tour, house is quite extensive. A work in progress, several nicely decorated rooms. Had been on the fence about stopping was glad I did. Did while partner was at Baseball Hall of Fame, about a 15 minute drive, worked out near perfectly.

We wanted to see what Hyde Hall looked like. We surely will return to tour this wonderful stately mansion. Due to time restraints we could not do it this trip. Amazing view of the lake and Glimmerglass State Park.

We just wanted to get a glimpse of Hyde Hall, but thanks to a wonderful gentleman named John we were able to take a tour. We even got to meet George Clark the cat! It's wonderful to see how much they've all done to restore the mansion to its glory. And, to learn about how they've restored and what they... More

Hyde Hall is becoming an attraction in itself in the Cooperstown area. Our expert guide, John, a Brit from Cheshire, knows how to handle an outstanding tour. He made the history and restoration of the house more interesting by telling stories, rather than burdening tourists with excessive amounts of boring minutiae. The tour connects family members with major moments in... More

We stumbled into Hyde Hall on a momentary whim during a recent trip to upstate NY. What a place! This location is well worth the effort. A very interesting tour was given by a guide who's part of a staff of people who are part of the ongoing preservation of Hyde Hall. It's not only a view of how 'the... More

When your in Cooperstown visiting the Baseball Hall of Fame, go to the other end of Lake Otsego and visit Hyde Hall. A little gem of a mansion that's being restored to it's original beauty. Take the tour and ask for John, a wonderful Englishman, who doesn't hold a grudge about loosing the war, and knows all there is to... More

If you've read my other reviews, we visited here on the same family trip. And again, this was something my granddaughter suggested. Tour guide was interesting; renovations were in progress. Would definitely recommend!
