Last night we went to Clermont mansion Ghost Tour.we walked along pumpkin lined walkways to get to the entrance. It started with cider and donuts and candies while we waited. When the tour started, I didn't know what to expect. We walked thru the house with our guide and saw various ghosts, Mr Livingston, Mrs Livingston, their son in law,... More

Good insight into a family we had never heard mentioned before visit to Clermont Mansion. Livingston family had many roles of importance to the history of Hudson River Valley as well as USA. The women of the family also showed their importance. Our tour guide was great at sharing her information as well as being willing to ask for questions... More

Beautiful state site on the Hudson - like many of the Germantown mansions it faces the Hudson and looks to the west with great views of the Catskills. A bit bothersome that there is a parking fee and a visit fee but I guess for folks that don't want the house tour it makes sense. The interior of the house... More

Great insight into the Livingston family - had no idea that they had played such an important role in the American revolution! Lovely grounds, great house, great tour guide.

The house is an excellent example of late Georgian / early Federal Style architecture. It's lovely inside & out. The grounds & views are classic, majestic Hudson Valley Estate. I've been here many times but I always learn something new and fascinating about early American history. Margaret Beekman Livingston, the woman who 'built' the house we step into today, provides...

We loved our time with Miss Betty! She not only can keep track of all the Livingstons up and down the Hudson River Valley (if you saw how many there are you'd know it's not so easy) and their cousins; but she fills you in on the history you thought you knew about the area. It's a beautiful house full... More

I was there to look at the grounds because my daughter is getting married here in 2017. I found the house tour much more interesting than I expected. I didn't know that the Livingston family was so involved in our nation's history. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. The building, the grounds and gardens are lovely. Will be a beautiful...

I stopped at Clermont after it was closed one evening but I enjoyed the grounds and walking near the Husdon was beautiful and peaceful. Intrigued by the home, I drove out of my way the next day for a tour and was glad I did. This is truly a unique and elegant home. Not at all what I was expecting.... More

The day I went, the house was closed, so I was only able to walk around the outside. The park is very nice with a large paved parking lot ($5 fee) and there are areas for picnics and nice views of the Hudson River.
