  • Bucolic and historical Hudson Valley gem. The house is beautiful but it is the property that I have fallen in love with. Over 200 hundred acres to wander and lose yourself along the Hudson River...

  • Love Love Love it here. Beautiful, Serene and my favorite place. Totally open to public. Dog friendly. If you haven't been definitely go. Anytime of year. No entry fees. Enjoy😊
  • Well maintained and informative venue about the inventor of Morse Code communication. Hiking trails on the grounds offer lovely views of the Hudson River. Regular tours of the home is available and the commercial building plays host to cultural events.
