I stopped at Clermont after it was closed one evening but I enjoyed the grounds and walking near the Husdon was beautiful and peaceful. Intrigued by the home, I drove out of my way the next day for a tour and was glad I did. This is truly a unique and elegant home. Not at all what I was expecting.... More

The day I went, the house was closed, so I was only able to walk around the outside. The park is very nice with a large paved parking lot ($5 fee) and there are areas for picnics and nice views of the Hudson River.

Ok -- I didn't quite make the tour for this house of Fulton, but the state park site is beautiful views of the Hudson -- plenty of room to spread out form others and picnic and walk. There is a small $5 parking fee for just the park.

Arg! They were only taking cash or check the day I tried to visit. I would've had to drive 40 min roundtrip to Rhinebeck to get cash, so I had to skip this one. In case it's helpful for others planning visits to historic homes in the Hudson Valley, I've visited a whole bunch, and included my list of favorites... More

A Revolutionary Era home is always a treat to visit and this one belonged to the illustrious Livingston family of New York. The mansion is worth the look with an approximately one hour tour. The interior decoration covers many eras to reflect later residents and additions to the house. The grounds are beautiful. We brought a picnic and ate it... More

The tour guides had so much info. Even the garden tour rendered much info. I would highly recommend it! The grounds are... More

While I have yet to venture inside the Clermont mansion, I have had the joy of 'hiking' the grounds - during the summer, fall and winter months. Each holding its' own beauty and treats. In the summer, basking on the lawn - which overlooks the Hudson River - is stunning. Saugerties is seen to the West, and with it comes... More

Given the reduced off-season hours, we were lucky to get a tour that turned out to be a private one -- which is always special. Jennie knew her stuff, provided us with a lot of information about the Livingstons of Clermont, and answered all of our questions. I had come across the Livingstons and Livingston Manor in my ancestry research... More
