Tour the Octagon House and Discover its Historic Charm!

Well worth the admission price

This is a magnificent and unusual house, restored to its 1872 glory. Well worth the admission price. The grounds are quite charming, as well.

A jewel ending to a holiday season

It was a ladies' evening out to top off the Christmas season and it did not disappoint. It is carefully restored and really shone in this season of light. The history of the house and the intersection with the 1800s notion of Christmas was delightful. The docent was wonderful who gave the tour plus the one in the gift shop was very informative as well. Will go back with other friends in warm weather as well.

First Class Tour

We've toured lots of places around the world, but this tour was exceptional. Our guide, Kateri Scott-MacDonald, knew her stuff and taught us a lot from the engineering of the Octagon to its decoration. It wasn't a lecture; it was a conversation. And she engaged us all.

No need for time travel machine :-)))

A true trip to the two previous centuries. Amazing experience. The focus for well being and vacationing has changed so very much. Most beautifully restored, true to the taste of this house era. Thanks to the devoted families who are allowing it to continue being special through the ages!!!

Unique Octogon house, beautifully restored.

Thanks to the Lombardis for renovating this lovely home and keeping it available for the public. So interesting to see how the octagonal space is utilized to create intimate rooms along with the larger entertainment spaces. Exquisite details are in perfect condition highlighting each room making this a jewel of the lower Hudson valley.

A must see attraction in the Historic Hudson Valley

Beautiful and Unusual home. Fabulously decorated for Christmas with lots of handmade ornaments.! Very informed tour guide. Interesting period furniture, including a unique sewing table and a cabinet of curiosity. Excellent restoration of this period home. Loved the porch that surrounds the home and the wicker furniture.
