A unique and highly interesting history to this place. Just a delight to tour. Learn about the owner and the connection with FDR.

A lovely house with beautiful gardens. The tour however was limited to just one floor and we felt cheated by this tour. Either get it totally open or tell people before that there is limited Access and proceed at your own after. I felt cheated

While the house is stunning both outside and in, you see less then one full floor....of a four floor mansion. I was quite disappointed. Past that the house is stunning.

I chose to visit this home when visiting the Hudson Valley based on how unique it looks on the exterior. While the inside is neat, I was a bit disappointed in the tour/facilities. You can only see the bottom floor due to fire code regulations,...More

Stunningly beautiful. Every little detail was thought out in the design of this grand house and the placement of furniture. See the house with highly knowledgeable guide. Just incredible artwork. Tour takes about an hour. Highlight of a short trip along the Hudson River valley.
