This is a lovely house with an interesting history and a bit of a star. It's starred in many movies and TV shows and they'll tell you all about it. Worth taking the tour to see and learn.

Great tour! Our guide was excellent. House and art work is stunning. Pack a picnic and eat on the grounds. Worth the visit.

What a beautiful mansion! The grounds were lovely, and our tour guide was very knowledgeable of the history of the mansion, the owners, the artwork, and so much more! There are stairs, so something to be mindful of for those with mobility issues.

The tour of this mansion was fabulous with an excellent guide to give us the history of both the mansion and the area. You can also have a wedding and/or a reception here -- nice venue.

We visited Lyndhurst on Halloween night. They had some sort of performance piece and each room had a different actor. It was pretty hokey, but the castle was beautiful and a joy to see. I was annoyed by a staff member who kept telling me to pay attention to the actor whenever I would look around the room and take... More

On our bus tour we visited Lyndhurst on one of their 'off' days. Our tour guy, Bob, was great!! Had a great style. Many Tiffany windows and grandfather's clock. Great landscape and specimen trees. Nice small gift shop.

We took the 1-hour tour. The website said it was closed on Mondays but we found them open and decided to take the tour. It is very interesting and lasts about an hour. The grounds are pretty awesome as well and you are free to wander as you please.

We visited Lyndhurst on a Saturday in mid-August 2014. The staff was very helpful and informative, from the man at the gatehouse to the woman in the gift shop to our tour guide Robin who was very knowledgeable about the house, the grounds, the owners, etc. She gave a lively tour and shared a lot of good information. Visiting in... More

I have taken the tour of this large Gothic house and found it both educational as well as interesting. I recently just walked the grounds and walked along the River Walk with my daughter, it riuns along the Hudson for a good distance. My understanding is that the walk will be extended south when funds become available, however, the walk... More
