Experience the History of Hudson Valley at Tarrytown House Estate with Featured Kykuit/Rockefeller Estate Package
If you are looking for a getaway this summer that offers a tour of one of the most stunning estates in the United States, Tarrytown House Estate on the Hudson, by Destination Hotels & Resorts is offering that and more with its “Kykuit/Rockefeller Estate” package. Guests can enjoy deluxe accommodations, a sumptuous American breakfast for two, and a tour of Kykuit, the legendary Rockefeller estate nearby in Tarrytown, N.Y.
Just minutes away from the Estate, the two-hour tour at this hilltop paradise features the history of the estate that was home to four generations of the Rockefeller family, beginning with the philanthropist John D. Rockefeller, founder of Standard Oil. Now an historic site of the National Trust, this extraordinary landmark has been meticulously maintained for almost 100 years and welcomes visitors during the spring and summer.
The tour winds through the main rooms of the six-story stone house, then to the expansive, terraced gardens featuring Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller’s exceptional collection of 20th century sculpture. Artists represented include Pablo Picasso, Henry Moore, Alexander Calder, Louise Nevelson, and David Smith, among many others. Next, experience the private underground art galleries filled with Picasso tapestries, and the Coach Barn, with collections of classic automobiles and horse-drawn carriages.
Following the tour, guests can stroll the beautiful grounds of the Estate, take a dip in one of the pools or enjoy the beautiful scenery overlooking the Hudson River. Deluxe accommodations and breakfast are also included.
