The pictures we took here looked like a postcard, all that autumn is supposed to be, with the changing colors of the trees in the hills and the brook. The mausoleums were a little creepy but so interesting to look at, very peaceful place.

What a gorgeous place especially during foliage season. And so easy to get to from Manhattan. Only an hour on Metro North.

Great place to visit, but really need the tour to make the most of the visit. Without that, we would not have known what we were looking at or where to go.

Interesting place to visit, found the Irving grave easily as there were signs for it no problem. We spent around 1hr in here which was enough & did the headless horsemen Halloween show later on across the round at the manor, brilliant.

My mother and I attended the 2 hour classic lantern night tour on Halloween. We had Kristina as our tour guide. She was dressed up as a greek mythology person for Halloween. She was absolutely awful, just an incredibly rude person. We've done many different...More

Our stay was fantastic. Seeing that we arrived during a hurricane on a Friday night, it was great. The hotel is close enough to stay and drive into Sleepy Hallow. I would highly suggest you book ahead what you want to do... More
