Named for Thomas King, a railroad magnate who lived in the mansion in the early 1900s, the Mansion was built circa 1840 and is one of the oldest buildings in Westchester. Each of the 10 Georgian style guests rooms of the King Mansion is unique, from wall colors to room layout to furniture. Some rooms have patios that overlook the beautifully landscaped grounds.
The Historic Hudson Valley Value Ticket is also available for a standard guest room starting at $263 and includes breakfast for two.
"We are very pleased that Historic Hudson Valley selected Tarrytown House hotel to offer this exclusive ticket," said Anthony Amendola, Director of Sales and Marketing. He added: "One of the major attractions about Tarrytown House is its rich history which includes several impressive, 19th-Century buildings including King Mansion. All four Historic Hudson Valley sites are within a 10-minute drive from Tarrytown House."
"Tarrytown House is a fantastic partner for us and a great opportunity for travelers and local folks alike looking for a great getaway," said Rob Schweitzer, Director of Public Relations for Historic Hudson Valley, which welcomes more than 200,000 visitors annually to its sites. "Staying at the historic Tarrytown House and visiting our historic properties is a perfect combination."
Kykuit was home to four generations of the Rockefeller family, beginning with John D. Rockefeller, founder of Standard Oil. Now a property of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, this extraordinary landmark has been meticulously maintained for almost 100 years. The six-story stone house and its terraced garden comprise art and sculpture as well as commanding views of the Hudson River.
Sunnyside provides an intimate glance into the life of Washington Irving, America’s ‘Founding Father of literature,’ who lived in the riverside cottage in the mid 19th century.
Philipsburg Manor is a working 18th-Century Dutch Colonial farm featuring a working water-powered gristmill, period costumed hosts, as well as sheep and other farm animals. It dates back to 1750, a milling, farming and trading complex that was owned by an Anglo-Dutch family of merchants, tenanted by farmers of diverse European backgrounds, and operated by 23 enslaved Africans.
Union Church of Pocantico Hills houses stained glass windows by Henri Matisse and Marc Chagall, creating a dramatic combination of light and color in this country church.
In addition to the exclusive Historic Hudson Valley Value Ticket, Tarrytown House continues to offer its popular Kykuit package. It includes breakfast for two, accommodations and two tickets to tour Kykuit. This package starts at $239 for a standard room and $339 for a King Mansion room.
