About the Tarrytown House Estate & Conference Center
It might be easier to explore the offerings of the Tarrytown House Estate & Conference Center by considering what they don’t have. They don’t have a water-theme park on their beautiful grounds. They don’t have balloon rides or a Shetland pony farm. They do, however, have pretty much everything else you’d expect in a luxurious estate in one of America’s loveliest towns – or so says Forbes Magazine, which included Tarrytown in a an article on “America’s Prettiest Towns” in March 2012.
And the Tarrytown House Estate & Conference Center just might be the nicest place to stay in the Hudson Valley. Picture 26 rolling acres overlooking the Hudson River Valley, with a pair of imposing 19th-century mansions (the Biddle Mansion and King Mansion), as well as a contemporary atrium-style building that houses conference facilities and a complex of newer buildings that dot the grounds. The Estate is comprised of 11 separate buildings, some of which date back to the 1840s. There are numerous walking trails and manicured gardens on the property – all of which can be enjoyed on mid-morning walks and appreciated from the 212 guestrooms and public spaces.
The sumptuous property has both indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a whirlpool and sauna, a racquetball court, a fitness center, two spa treatment rooms, bocce ball and horseshoes, a full-length basketball court, a tennis court and a volleyball court. There’s much to do but many guests best enjoy just wandering the property and taking in its art, photos, warmly paneled drawing room, sunny library, elegant dining room with leaded-glass windows and the signposted tour of the grounds. You may also enjoy wandering back in time, and imagining a time when the Biddle Mansions – named for Mary Duke Biddle, an heiress of the Duke tobacco fortune – were the sites of elite parties, lavish living, tea parties on the lawns, tennis games on the then indoor court and horseback riding over the undulating Hudson Valley hills.
With such picturesque grounds, 30,000 square feet of meeting space, 30 meeting rooms and a dedicated conference planner to help plan out any corporate event, these days the Tarrytown House Estate & Conference Center is a popular site for conventions and weddings. During the summer, the property is host to special events like a family friendly “Pajama Movie Night,” wine tastings, and even a “Chocolate & Cupcakes Clinic.”
All guest rooms and suites are large and comfortable, with plush bedding and towels, great views and modern amenities like Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs. Guests can also reserve one of the 10 unique Georgian-style guest rooms in the 173-year-old King Mansion, some of which have their own patios.
Kykuit – the John D. Rockefeller Estate, Washington Irving's Sunnyside and Lyndhurst Castle are nearby, as are countless museums, galleries and shopping opportunities. The mighty Hudson rolls on mere minutes from the property and Manhattan is just 25 miles away … though it feels like a world apart.
The Tarrytown House and Estates is perfect for travelers seeking a serene and luxurious retreat, history buffs, business travelers and romantics. In fact, if the romancing is successful, the estate is also a beautiful place to tie the knot!
