Create an itinerary including Wilderstein Historic Site
Wilderstein Historic Site, with its exquisite Queen Anne mansion and Calvert Vaux designed landscape, is widely regarded as one of the Hudson Valley’s most important examples of Victorian architecture. The estate was the home of Margaret (Daisy) Suckley, whose extraordinarily close relationship with Franklin Delano Roosevelt has been well-chronicled and is the subject of much interest. The regular season for guided tours is May through October. In addition, the mansion is open and decorated for the holidays from Thanksgiving weekend until the end of December.

  • We visited Wilderstein on a pleasant morning in August. The grounds are lovely and there are trails through the woods. It was quiet and peaceful during the week; however, the mansion was not open...

  • Only the first floor is open, but a good glimpse into days gone by. Nicely decorated for the holidays. Worth the pitstop if you're in the area.
