The manor was really beautiful. Nicer the expected when I saw the outside of the home. The area around is breathtaking! Stunning grounds. A very calm place to spend a nice day

Visited the park for my first hike which began and end near the manor. The trails we took were considered moderate, which weren't as taxing as I would have expected. There weren't a lot of bugs, but that may have been due to the time of year we visited. Will definitely visit again. Mostly like on the mountain biking trails.

We enjoyed a wonderful picnic overlooking the stream…hidden in the woods. (No liquor allowed although we had wine and did not know!) Charming ambiance. Afterwards, we took a tour of the Cooper Hewitt mansion on the grounds of the park... a beautiful estate with original furnishings. Tour lasts 1 1/2hrs and is very reasonable and enjoyable. Walking through the gardens... More

Visited Ringwood Manor yesterday for a tour of the grounds and gardens. The guide was the park historian and very knowledgeable who obviously loves her subject. Two and a half hours went by quickly as we saw buildings that are not usually accessible to the public. A great day to send a leisurely stroll learning about history. Enjoyed it immensely.

My entire family found something to enjoy. The restored house and tour was great. We also had a picnic by the brook, walked the trails and toured the outbuildings and art gallery. There was a fantastic exhibit of school kids art which I enjoyed, while the "boys" went fishing. No wifi, but it was hardly missed by my kids.
