If you like period mansions, this is a must see. Mostly original and very well kept. Since 3 families occupied the site the pieces and transformations from each period are Interesting to see. Our guide was very good. The guided tour lasts about and hour, but make time to stroll the 100+ acres and walk along the river walk.

Didn't get to explore because we heard they offered free admission to the grounds but upon arrival it turned out they charged.. but it looks very nice and tucked away - will come back to visit again in the future.

This is a castle-like mansion once owned by Jay Gould and is interesting to visit. Our guide, Rick, though, was too determined to keep saying how horrible Jay Gould was. We didn't feel his personal feelings should be part of the narrated tour. We wanted to enjoy viewing the home without the propaganda that everyone should hate and resent successful... More

Wonderful to walk the grounds with the historic trees, this mansion is backdrop to craft festivals spring and fall. Even a Lego celebration with motorised models in April

House was closed but grounds were open. Nice rose garden, small. Did not have a desire to return when open.

This is a beautiful castle with a very rich history which reflects architecture and culture of 19th century NY. If you are anywhere near Tarrytown and have an hour or 3 to spend visit the castle, have lunch in their carriage house. And enjoy the many acres of gardens, the rose garden in May and June.

A must see on any trip into the Hudson Valley. The house is beautiful and the views are spectacular. The rooms are especially beautiful filled with time period pieces and a step back in time for all to enjoy. The grounds are well kept and a visit at anytime of the year is just down right gorgeous!

Lyndhurst is an interesting place to tour and Rick, our tour guide, did a great job bringing it all to life. He was very well informed and spent more than an hour going over fascinating details of the home, its furnishings and, most of all, the families who have lived there. The home sits on more than 40 acres of... More
