It's a simple quiet place but it's inspiring. The docent's are adorable and informative. There are many things I saw that I would love to have or copy. The views are spectacular, it's a great place to take photos.

We wish we could've gone into the house, since I am descended from its original owner and have been touring all the Livingston homes. But we enjoyed the park, views, and the trails. Especially enjoyed unexpectedly discovering the waterfall while hiking.

We went on April 27th which was a lovely spring day, with the trees just starting to bud. That was good because it allowed a good view of the Hudson River, the negative was that the mansion was not opened until May 1st, but the...More

I know Montgomery Place was just purchased by Bard college, so I think the hours may have changed. I know tours used to have to be booked in advance. I would call Bard college to inquire further.
