I don't really care about the whole history of the estate, I wanted to just see the house. It was Memorial Day weekend, and I was thankful they were willing to squeeze in three more people for the 4pm tour because I had just driven four hours to see the place. However, there was way too much talking. The place... More

The grounds are beautiful and the view of the river is spectacular. The main house is simply stunning upon approach. Highly recommend a visit and tour, which includes much history. There are many events held at this property throughout the year, so there's always a reason to return.

Step back in time to an era where there were no taxes or controls on cornering the market on rail roads on the misery of poor workers. That said Jay Gould built one of the coolest castles over looking the Hudson. He was a hedge funder of the 1800's that built a gorgous estate with greenhouses, playhouse, pool and much... More

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...
