Description

Guided tour for five (includes audio tour of the grounds) to Boscobel House & Gardens in Cold Spring, NY!

Situated on a bluff on the east bank of the Hudson River, overlooking the United States Military Academy at West Point, Boscobel House & Gardens offers its visitors inspirational and astounding views of the river and the Hudson Highlands.

Completed in 1808 for the States Dyckman family, Boscobel House is widely regarded as one of the finest examples of Federal architecture in the country. It contains an extensive and important collection of Federal-period furniture and decorative arts, many of which were crafted by premier New York cabinetmakers Duncan Phyfe and Michael Allison.

Boscobel's experienced docent staff guides visitors through a step back in time with tours of Boscobel House. The grounds include a magnificent rose garden, orangery, herb garden, springhouse, pond, fountain and woodland trail, complete with rustic cedar structures and glorious scenery.
