Well worth the short drive over the bridge. Grounds are beautiful and the history is very interesting. Ed, our tour guide, was knowledgeable and funny. Will definitely go back for the back stairs tour with enough time to do a river walk.

We have gone here a few times over the years for the Halloween Haunted mansion. It was amazing! Just wish the show was a little longer. It's located right outside of Sleepy Hollow in Tarrytown. The castle is beautiful year round!
