“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

I love Washington Irving, so it was wonderful to see his house and the chair where he sat to write. There is an old tree outside that looks so quirky nest to the house. I loved it. If you're a fan of Irving, you should really see it.

“Lovely Old Estate Rich In History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

We were part of a small tour group that provided an up close and personal experience. Our guide was dressed in a period costume and offered a wealth of information about Washington Irving, his family and the way of life on the Hudson so many years ago. We never felt rushed and our guide was very knowledgeable and personable. There is a lovely shop on the property where you can purchase some very interesting and unique gifts. For those who can't do a lot of walking it is an easy tour and is only about an hours and a half in duration. I highly recommend visiting Washington Irving's Sunnyside.

“Informative and Interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We got to Sunnyside five minutes before the 10:30 tour without a reservation, but they managed to squeeze us into the group. Very interesting. The tour guide was well prepared and answered all of the groups questions.

I liked it. I think we went another time for a sheep shearing there. Tours are good and grounds too.

“Tranquility at Sunnyside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

An easy day trip from Manhattan the setting is beautiful. You can enjoy a pleasant walk from the Irvington train station and there are plenty of places to eat in the area. Learn a little history while you take a day in the country.
