My honey took me to this park as part of our "date day". The grounds are huge and the mansion tour is well done. The lady who explains the history and give the tour was very knowledgeable and friendly. However, the grounds are lacking a lot of beauty. There weren't many flowers and it seemed boring. The view of the... More

Went here to walk the grounds. Didn't think the house was open, but was surprised to find it was and we were the only two on the tour. Tour was only $5 and parking this time of year is $5.

This was a great evening. The tour starts with a walk down a garden path lined with carved and lit jack-o-lanterns. You are met at the door to the Clermont mansion by the family’s maid. Various ghosts appear as you walk through the mansion - each from a different era of the home’s history. The tour ends at a wood... More

This substantial mansion on the banks of the Hudson has been the home of 7 generations of Livingstons, a family that has served our country since its beginning. It is furnished in the style of the last generation, around the early part of the 20th century. The history of the family and its contributions to the USA is truly remarkable,... More

The Livingston Mansion located at Clermont State Historic Park is worth a visit. You may visit the historic home, as well as the gardens, and museum on site. Stroll along the tall trees and rolling hills on the Hudson River and bring a picnic to enjoy this beautiful property. It is a lovely and peaceful place to spend an hour... More

We enjoy attending "Clermont Events" . It is a unique place and everyone who works there gives 100% to make any event a wonderful experience. The old mansion is much loved and during the warmer days, the grounds are a joy to visit. My favorite place is the herb garden. If you visit, you may see me there, sitting on... More

After visiting DeWint House in Tappan (You must go there!) and being disappointed that information at Saugerties Historical Society / Kiersted House about being open for a Mexican Christmas celebration, I decided to head back to Clermont for the Candlelight Christmas Tableaux Vivant Tour. I am glad that I did..It was wonderful and the tour group size was perfect (eight... More

Hy husband, 16 year old daughter, and myself went to the Candlelight tour. What a wonderful experience. It was a delightful blend of history, reenacting and ghost lore. After the tour there was a fire outside to roast marshmellows! The actors were great and cracked us up. Great family fun for Halloween- the mansion itself is beautiful any season.

We were lucky enough to spend our 4th of July 2012 at Clermont Mansion. As much as we loved the grounds and the views of the Hudson, we feel the tour guide should have had more of a grasp of the Livingston Family history. Our Guide did not have any sense of the Arsenic and Clam Chowder book and the... More

The movie where the last Livingston to live there gives a personal account of what it was like to grow up there, View of Hudson from Clermont is the best out of all the mansions along the Hudson except for Boscobel
