Tarrytown, New York – May 10, 2007 – To celebrate the completion of an $11 million grand estate restoration, Tarrytown House Estate, located just 25 miles north of Manhattan, has created an overnight experience to entice history buffs, architectural enthusiasts and American culturists. More importantly, this package will appeal to anyone who would enjoy spending an evening or a weekend immersed in the beauty of the Hudson Valley, about which noted author and former resident Washington Irving wrote, “If ever I should wish for a retreat…I know of none more promising than this little valley."

Rockefeller’s Kykuit, among others.

- Overnight stay in the King Mansion, now restored to its former grandeur with 10 period Georgian era bedrooms
