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

Attended a good guided tour through this beautiful little mansion (looking like an English palace). Tour was very informative and were given a lot of information about the history of the house, the owners and how the area had changed. Fee is USD 15 per person. The place can be easily reached by car and also offers a huge park... More

An hour north of Manhattan by train (39 min by car), this 67 acre well-maintained estate of the railroad baron Jay Gould is a lovely mile stroll from downtown Irvington along the aqueduct. The rise garden in season and stately trees and vast lawns are free to walk (fee to visit the Gothic mansion). Irvington itself has preserved its small... More

This is another must see when coming to tarrytown. The information given is very informative about how living was in 1700 and beyond. The Gould's, the Merritt's and the original owners the Paulding's. You were actually able to see how each of the owners lived during their times. Overall good walk of the grounds.

Beautiful mansion with nearly all of the original furniture. Art gallery with paintings you can get close to. I was lucky to be on a small tour of only three people. Guide was personable and answered questions.

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

We were here on Mother's Day and enjoyed a small opera type concert. Mansion was very nice and guide extremely informative. Mgr of gift shop was rude however when questioned about information given over the phone that did not coincide with reservation details.
