While Tarrytown House Estate made its name as a conference center, this popular destination offers rooms for individual visitors. The “campus” contains a collection of historic and modern buildings and features river views, outdoor and indoor swimming pools, tennis courts, and an exercise facility. Cellar 49, with its wine vault in what used to be the private bowling alley of the Biddle Mansion, serves up a modern twist on classic American cuisine in a moody setting of stone, brick, and rich wood. Both Sunnyside and Lyndhurst can be reached on foot from Tarrytown House. Inquire when booking about heritage tour packages that include visits to area historic sites such as Kykuit, the Rockefeller estate, and special Historic Hudson Valley events, including The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze.
