I attended a wedding in New York this Memorial Day weekend at the Lyndhurst Castle in Tarrytown, New York. I didn’t encounter the Headless Horseman in Sleepy Hollow, but I did snap a few photos of this cool castle.
Here is a close-up of the castle.
I got to tour the inside, too. All of the furnishings are roped off.
There is a lot of architectural detail inside the castle.
As far as I know, none of these heads belong to the Horseman. 🙂
The ceilings are highly detailed, too.
There are a lot of arches in the castle.
This is my dream desk. So many compartments!
Of course, there has to be a grandfather clock.
A castle clock on the fireplace mantle.
Here is a view of the Hudson river from inside the castle. The castle sits at the top of a hill overlooking the river.
I walked down to the bottom of the hill for a closer look. Apparently, many others have done the same, as there was a stone bench down there to enjoy it.
Looking back up the hill at the castle.
I found another magnificent home at the bottom of the hill right next to the river.
The expansive grounds were green and lush.
Even the trees are worth a look.
This tree shows a lot of character.
Brilliant desk. I want it!
