We've toured old mansions all over the US, and many in other parts of the world. This was no doubt a grand "castle" in its heyday, but there is very little left of the original home - everything inside is restored and none of the original furniture is there. You see the rooms on the ground level that are now... More

So this is how the other half lived.:) Tour has great- guide was well versed and very informative. At the end of the tour there was coffee, tea, and treats- a lovely touch. The tour is included with packages if you stay at the hotel.

My wife and I drove for more than an hour to visit this place. When we got there, a lady at the gate told us we couldn't drive in, not even to have a quick look at the building from the outside. I explained that I was from England and would not have the opportunity in the near future to... More

I have visited other mansions in the area and paid more or less the same entry fee. However, $25 to see a bridal venue is overpriced. It has not been a residence for more than 70 years - no original furnishings remain; the interior is beautiful - but so is every 5 star hotel I have ever been in (and... More

We went yesterday and if you look at the photos on TripAdvisor - then you see the tour. Saw a ball room and the restaurant. Little historic information. NOTHING in the home is original. We basically paid $25 + tax for an advertisement to use the property for a special event. Coffee and cookies stuck in a side room and... More

If you have heard of the Gold Coast of Long Island this is what they are talking about. Built by Otto Herman Kahn about 100 years ago. Second largest private home in the U.S. You can stay in the hotel or have a meal as well. It is surrounded by his personal golf course which is no longer part of... More

It was a very informative tour and the tour guide seemed to know everything about the castle. Highly recommend checking it out if you have the opportunity.

Went for the holiday tour, and while we loved what we saw, there is so much MORE that we had hoped and expected to see! This is a 240 room mansion, and we only got to see 10 rooms........ We walked around outside and looked in some windows, so we saw some more, but they should really open it up... More
