Although we did not take the tour (MAKE RESERVATIONS) we did enjoy the shop and the property. It has some beautiful views of the Catskills. The bridge is lovely. Look for the carp and coy. This property would be lovely for a picnic.

This is a serene setting that we usually visit when we travelled to see our college student. Walking opportunities allowed us to spot nature in its finest. Love the area.

Mansion is small and not much to see. Much of the mansion is under repair. Tour guides were great, but other mansion tours are far better. If your time is limited go to Roosevelt Mansion and Museum and Library.

Did you miss those big blue signs that point direct you to "Vanderbilt estate" ? Big arrows? Sorry you were so stressed but you might try say, Google Maps?

Yeah but would be tight. If you just visited the homes yes, but might be a stretch if you plan to go to FDR museum and the grounds of the properties.
