We visited the Lyndhurst on a weekend trip to attend the Renaissance Faire in Tuxedo Park. Our last visit to Lyndhurst was during Halloween last year (2016). What a difference when it's not a holiday. While we truly enjoyed the Mansion during Halloween with all the decorations, we were able to see all the intricate architecture on this visit. Absolutely amazing work! Our tour guide, Bob, happened to be the same guide we had on our Halloween tour (sans Dracula attire). Bob is extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. We absolutely love him!
The craft fair was that weekend and we had an amazing time. Truly enjoyed visiting the vendor booths. Food stations were fabulous.
I read some of the negative comments. One had nothing to do with the Mansion and another was asking to overload a tour with children. If you have young children, don't ask to be added to a full group. While your children may be angels, the staff doesn't know them and will adhere to the rules. The hallways are narrow and you have several tours moving through the house at the same time. The limit, I believe, is 16 people and that is more than sufficient for one tour group.
We're going back at Halloween but we want to see the renovated bowling alley ... it was not open last year.
Lyndhurst does an amazing job with the grounds and the buildings. Always a joy going.
