The Vanderbilt Mansion is a chance to see a Gilded Age mansion that is on a more manageable scale than the ones in Newport or Asheville. It is fully furnished and the Park Service guides are entertaining. The couple who built it were interesting to...More

National historic site, Worth taking a tour of this amazing home. Rooms are stunning, park guide very knowledgeable of the Vanderbilt family. Small gift shop, with lots of unique items. Tour takes about 60 minutes. Don't miss a hidden gem.

The home is pretty nice. Perhaps 20 rooms all done up in splendor. Great views of the Hudson River and great grounds. Interesting.

We live nearby and visit the grounds here frequently (and the grounds and gardens are free to enjoy). We love to take our dogs for a walk down to the Hudson River, or have a picnic on the big grassy lawn. The gardens have always...More
