This is a beautiful house museum with a very interesting history. The guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the house and shared that information with us. The decor is gorgeous, and the grounds are beautiful. I'm glad we took the time to visit.

Lyndhurst is magnificent example of early Gothic Revival style architecture in the United States. It has a rich and interesting history. The house is preserved immaculately and throughout the tour you will get to see a real glimpse into the past. Upon entering the estate you have to pay a minimal parking fee which includes entry to the park and... More

A Trust treasure that includes not only a beautiful tour of a historical mansion but with lovely grounds to walk about while enjoying the magnificent Hudson River views it offers. Travel down a winding paved pathway to an additional structure and a breathtaking view -- keep walking and it meets the gate to the Hudson River Walkway if you want... More

Wow what a place to visit, we had an awesome experience while at Lyndhurst. Great staff on the tour, awesome detail in the mansion, truly a great place to visit the past. Plus if you are a Dark Shadows fan, you may recognize the Mansion from the show and the two movies. way cool.

The tour of the house with Nathan was great. Each beautiful room was described with personal stories of the former 3 families. The art work, furnishings and ornate ceilings were amazing. The views of the surrounding park with its weeping European Beech trees made you feel you were in the countryside. Worth a visit too is the rose garden where... More

We were traveling with dogs so half our group did the hour long guided tour while the other half explored the grounds. The guided tour was full of history and insight and we marveled to hear how entrepreneur industrialist created so much wealth. The grounds were nice. Although perhaps the time of year we found it flat without colour. The... More

I had set aside a lot of time to see this estate, as the map shows extensive grounds, a huge conservatory, and a bowling alley aside from the main house. While the main house tour is nice, be advised that it is all there is to see here. The bowling alley is closed, and the conservatory is basically non-existant because... More

Amazing what money can buy. Get Robin as your tour guide and you will learn so very much about the house and grounds, the owners and architect, and a hundred years of American history. An excellent way to spend an afternoon
