Our tour guide was knowlegable and excellent. Sunnyside sits on the banks of the Hudson and is a prime location. I learned so much I did not know about Washinton Irving and the legend of Sleepy Hollow. this tour was a great way to top off our walking tour of the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery.

We visited here during their special October Sleepy Hollow events. The setting is quite peaceful considering you are so close to the hustle and bustle of tarrytown. The house tour was decent but could have been better if additional rooms could have been visited. All docents were quite knowledgeable and there were plenty of activities to take part in.

Because we were in the area for Holloween reservations were required, but they modified the tour by having the docents in a room rather than walking through the house with a single tour guide, but it was okay.

Nice historical location right near the Hudson River. Quiet location and Washington Irving's home is nearby along with Sleepy Hollow where many famous people are buried.

We visited Tarrytown specifically to walk the grounds at Sleepy Hollow Cemetery but decided to drive a little bit further into town to check out Washington Irvings residence, and we were not disappointed. The tour was reasonably priced and not over the top. The tour guide, complete with colonial garb, walked us through the grounds of the home and all... More

This small cottage was the home of Washington Irving during his days of writing the Legend of Sleepy Hollow. The drive to the grounds down Sunnyside Lane is gorgeous as you pass a number of beautiful houses on the way. There is ample parking with views of the Hudson. The walkway to the cottage is a ramp going downhill through... More

Wow, what a great place to visit to learn about the past and experience it first hand. Awesome staff and the grounds and the buildings are just something to experience for sure. The main house captures in every detail the life and times of Washington Irving. Totally not to be missed.
