The best part of the tour was the guy greeting you before you enter the house. Once inside, it is very cramped. Though worth seeing to hear about the life of the author, but if pressed for time in the area, can be skipped.

It was very interesting and the tour guides were very knowledgeable. It is the home of Washing Irving and his family. Lots of historical treasures to view. Be warned it is small. The hallways & staircase are narrow, the ceilings are lower and it can...More

Scheduled our timed tour on line and enjoyed. Learned quite a bit about Washington Irving. House is not large but has interesting architectural features. Faces the Hudson River. Very pleasant setting.
