It is well located and has a nice visiting schedule. The downside is the price. For less then $30 you can not enjoy it.

This makes for a great half day if you combine this tour with Sunnyside just south on Route 9. The park has an entrance fee, but it is subtracted from the house tour fee. The docent was very knowledgeable and easily answered questions, was often humorous. The house had several owners and changes to the house were clearly noted. You... More

I did not tour the castle, but I brought a picnic lunch and walked the grounds, which are gorgeous. The rose garden is stunningly beautiful. I will go back to tour the castle.

The tour guides were so accommodating and knowledgeable. Three totally different owners of the castle with totally different lifestyles. See how this grand mansion has evolved. The grounds are wonderful and peaceful as well, right on the Hudson River, great view of the Zappan Zee Bridge.

This is a 19th century gothic mansion on gorgeous grounds on the Hudson River. Our tour guide, Ed was excellent, engaging and fun. With the price of admission you can hike on a river trail, and walk around the grounds (leashed dogs are allowed). I recommend this for people who are interested in history, art and architecture.

This is a really interesting property--nice look at how the house developed over time and how the rich folks lived! However, the introductory film is pretty bad (you may as well skip it), and our tour guide could have been more knowledgeable about basic history. We were interested in seeing the bowling alley (in a separate building) but when we... More
