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.

Mansion was gorgeous. Grand room with all the paintings on the second floor took my breath away. Grounds were okay, not much to see. The mansion is small inside and there were a lot of people on our tour so eventually everyone is just pushing...More

This is a must see place both inside and out. Concerts on the lawn during the summer are wonderful. View is spectacular.

I reside nearby and often walk the Croton Trail that crosses the grounds of Lyndhurst Castle. It is such a beautiful edifice! Recommend a visit in late Spring and particularly in the Fall.
