We did not tour the house but the walk along the Hudson River is relaxing. The space is nice for families to stroll with their kids and people to walk or run.

It seems Lyndhurst has multiple special events throughout the year that make the typical visit to an old family mansion a little more special. We attended their Halloween Haunted House this year for fun. Old movie monster characters take you on a decorated and scripted tour of the house. If we hadn't just gone I'd probably go to see the...

Lyndhurst looks just like I remember it from 40 years ago. We had a great time and my wife enjoyed the period outfits on display.

Really some beautiful grounds you can stroll around on. The architecture of the house is really awesome. To think there were craftsman like this so many years ago is crazy. The rooms are small but the house is beuatiful. Enjoy !!

Exquisite Architecture, stunning grounds, peaceful view of the Hudson River. Home to The Collins Family in the feature films based on the TV show "Dark Shadows" 1966-71; "House of Dark Shadows" 1970 "Night of Dark Shadows" 1971. A photographers dream any time of the day or night! Lyndhurst is absolutely exquisite!

Loved this castle and the river walk. The history surrounding it is interesting and we loved the tour.

Were there in November when the mansion was closed. So we only walked around. Good thing - the whole place is almost just for you, a couple of other families were there. But the grounds are rather boring, not much of landscaping. So you may have a good, quiet walk around, bot not much of viewing besides the mansion itself.... More

You don't see many Gothic mansions in this area. So in that respect, the architecture is interesting. The interior design reflected the eclectic tastes of the "robber barons". I did love the art gallery, with its high ceiling, the contrast between light and shade. It was nice to walk around the grounds in the summer.

We read great reviews of this attraction and that's why we went. I got a bad feeling in the beginning when we had to watch the tacky video while we waited. The house is gorgeous but the bad actors were obnoxious and annoying and the whole experience was boring. I've been to haunted houses before that are so realistic, while... More

If you have children, I do not suggest taking them on this tour. We tried to get into a tour (there were a bunch of us), The tour would be a couple people over and we were leaving town within the hour and this was to be our last experience in Sleepy Hollow. I went to the ticket counter and... More
