I am lucky enough to live near Olana.
I have seen the house and evolve over the years. My family and friends often just go to visit the grounds. If you do the house tour, book early...it fills up. I am also a fan of visiting the house near the holidays. The tour guides are well versed in the history of the Church family who built Olana and other artists of the Hudson Valley School.
Olana has pet friendly grounds. Bring a picnic, hike the trails, enjoy the views. You can have a mini vacation by just hanging there all day..
Promise that you won't get bored.
