Great little home. The tour was great, the tour guide told a story about the home, who lived in it, and how the home fit into American history. They have copies of original documents in each room to supplement the narrative. Really well presented. In...More

Beautifull grounds, great view, gorgeous historic home. Disapointed that it was only open to public on first floor and basement kitchen. Guide was very well informed. But most importantly, handicapped accomodations are not made apparent. Beginning of tour involves a LONG walk from parking to...More

It's a simple quiet place but it's inspiring. The docent's are adorable and informative. There are many things I saw that I would love to have or copy. The views are spectacular, it's a great place to take photos.

Lovely estate on the Hudson with long history of women who "made it happen". We couldn't tour the house (only on Saturday) but walked the grounds and gardens using a well delinieated map. Be prepared if you have mobility issues. No alternatives but to walk...More

We wish we could've gone into the house, since I am descended from its original owner and have been touring all the Livingston homes. But we enjoyed the park, views, and the trails. Especially enjoyed unexpectedly discovering the waterfall while hiking.

We found this by accident. It was listed on one map of the Hudson River Area. There was a little pond that was just full of bullfrogs. We walked to the waterfall and the bay. While the grounds were not as dramatic or spectacular as...More

We went on April 27th which was a lovely spring day, with the trees just starting to bud. That was good because it allowed a good view of the Hudson River, the negative was that the mansion was not opened until May 1st, but the...More

Great place to bring the family. Pretty hiking trail, one leads to the Hudson river (very quiet spot) -- I've taken time to sit and just watch the water. During the spring and summer, the mansion is open for tours. I also love the walk...More

I know Montgomery Place was just purchased by Bard college, so I think the hours may have changed. I know tours used to have to be booked in advance. I would call Bard college to inquire further.
