Toured the house. Charlie, the guide, was more than interesting and quite knowledgeable about the house itself and the furnishings as well. Betty, who was working the desk,was most helpful and very interesting.

Awesome guided tour through a house with history in the early 1800’s. Federal furnishings give a unique history of Hudson River area. Beautiful grounds with apple orchard. Definitely worth a visit.
