The Vanderbilt Mansion is a great piece of architecture and really shows how the "other half" lived at that time period. The opulence is incredible. Well worth the visit and our guide was interesting and knowledgeable.

The actual house was being refurbished so we weren't able to go inside but the guest house and grounds are beautiful. I can only imagine what it was like to live or be a guest there during it's hey days. Lovely place to visit.

The home was closed but it was a nice walk around the mansion and grounds. It will be nice to see the inside at some point but since it was a beautiful sunny day it was just fine!

We've seen the other Vanderbilt mansions -- The Breakers in RI and The Biltmore in NC -- but this one is different because it has all of the original furnishings so you can almost pretend that you've been invited to dinner with the Vanderbilts 100...More

We were driving from Vermont down to JFK, looking for fun places to stop. The mansion was marked on our map and also well sign-posted. Turned off the road and instantly loved the view. Quite a lot of trees and a long series of driveways...More
