The mansion itself is well with the trip. The grounds are beautiful- excellent views of the Hudson, gorgeous rose garden, ghost greenhouses. The mansion tour is excellent. The architecture is just stunning. The Tiffany lamps they currently have on display are breathtaking. Do not miss!

My wife and I, and the couple with us, loved our tour of Lyndhurst. The house is beautiful, and our guide was terrific in explaining the history of the house and its owners.

Friendly staff. I went for the Christmas Carol event around Christmas. It was a pleasant relief that story telling can still be fun and exciting. I recommend attending an event. They also have nice auto shows.
