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.

A must-see site for history and literary buffs. Even if you aren't familiar with Irving, his house is worth visiting. The house itself is interesting as a idiosyncratic example of the Romantic Era and the interior is largely filled with items original to Irving. The...More
