Overlooking the Hudson River in Tarrytown, New York, is Lyndhurst, one of America’s finest Gothic Revival mansions. Designed in 1838 by Alexander Jackson Davis, its architectural brilliance is complemented by the park-like landscape of the estate and a comprehensive collection of original decorative arts. Its noteworthy occupants included: former New York City mayor William Paulding, merchant George Merritt, and railroad tycoon Jay Gould. Lyndhurst is a site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

WOW... The Mansion was decorated to the 9’s for the Holidays. Our first visit and we loved every minute of it. The guides were amazing and answered all our questions. There was also a small craft fair that day to top it off.

The tour and tour guide were full of surprises. Lot of fun and lot of information. Did the Classic Tour which was suggested for first timers. But the grounds look like they are worth another trip.

I believe that you can. there are 2 separate fees for the property. one is a grounds admission, which gets credited towards the house tour, if you take it.
