Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow - History on the Hudson

Posted by Margaret Sneddon on November 24, 2014 at 1:15 PM

Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow - History on the Hudson

The Hudson River Valley has long been admired for its beauty. During the gilded age, the American Aristocracy made it a summer time play ground. The likes of the Goulds and the Vanderbilts built their elaborate "Summer Cottages" along it's banks. The Hudson River School painters glorified its scenic vistas in their works. Today, many of these magnigicent edifaces remain and are available to be used as wedding venues.

Made legendary by the writings of Washington Irving, the beautiful Hudson River Valley village of Tarrytown offers many wonderful wedding locations. Some of my favorites include the Castle on the Hudson, Tappan Hill, Lyndhurst Mansion, Tarrytown House, James House, and any of the Historic Hudson Valley sites, not to mention Hotels such as the Marriott, Sheraton and Doubletree.

No matter which location you choose, don't forget the ceremony music. The elegant harp is a wonderful match for a beautiful venue.

The Castle on the Hudson

The Castle on the Hudson is dear to my heart because Bill and I had our wedding cerebration there. It was a fairy tale wedding for us and will be for you if you select this gorgeous location for your wedding. High on a hill top, the Castle is a familiar landmark that can be seen from many of the highways approaching Tarrytown. It commands magnificent views of the Hudson River and environs. The sumpteously furnished Norman style Castle invokes the romance of a bygone era. It was the perfect setting for our Scottish Style wedding.

The Medieval Great Room is perfect for ceremony or reception

Depending on the size of your party, you may use the beautiful tapestry room, the intimate library, the elegant Caramai Ballroom or the Baronial style great room with its heraldic motifs, stained glass windows, cathedral ceiling and musician's gallery. Wedding ceremonies may also take place in the beautifully manicured gardens with their expansive views of the Hudson River. No matter which room or garden you choose, the harp is a wonderful match for your ceremony of cocktail hour music.

Not far from the Castle is Tappan Hill, once the estate of American author Mark Twain and now catered by the inimitable Abigail Kirsch.This beautiful mansion sits atop another hill and commands panoramic views of the Hudson from its manicured lawns and landscaped gardens. There are two garden locations for ceremonies, an expansive glassed in porch and many rooms within the mansion in which to have your ceremony and reception. The intimate Hudson room is perfect for your cocktail hour, rehearsal dinner, or small reception. The elegantly appointed Pavilion room hosts larger parties.... and don't forget the music! The romantic and elegant harp is a perfect match for any of the beautiful rooms or gardens.

Tappan Hill reflects an era of elegance, and refinement. Its gracious rooms transport your guests to a time of gentility and leisure. It’s wonderful staff will see to your every need.


As you travel south on Broadway, you will arrive at Lyndhurst Castle, another fairy tale setting. The winding drive through the beautifully landscaped English style gardens will suddenly reveal a mansion that might very well have been the inspiration for Disney’s Princess Castle. The towers and turrets of this gothic revival style mansion create a fanciful confection. A National Trust and Historic Hudson valley property, Lyndhurst is considered by many to be the finest example of Gothic Revival architecture in America.

If the weather permits, your ceremony may well take place inthe rose garden followed by cocktails on the veranda overlooking the Hudson. Receptions may be tented or take place in the gorgeously adapted carriage house. In any of these locations, the harp can create an elegant atmosphere. On a beautiful day, it's perfect for your Rose Garden ceremony. 

Contact Lyndhurst for information about catering andentertainment.


Lyndhurst is one of several sites that fall under the blanket of Historic HudsonValley. This wonderful organization includes a number of Tarrytown and nearby landmark locations, several of which are available for weddings and special events. In addition to Lyndhurst, they include Sunnyside,the home of Washington Irving, Philipsburg Manor in Sleepy Hollow, a working pre-Revolutionary Farm, The Union Church in Pocantico Hills, with its famed Chagall windows and Van Cortlandt Manor in Croton. Kykuit, the Rockefeller Estate, is also a Historic Hudson Valley Property as is Montegomery Place a bit further north.

The Tarrytown Conference Center is a complex of garden locations and beautiful buildings perfect for a storybook wedding. For a large party you may choose the stone fronted Biddle House with its gracious library, elegant parlor and expansive ball room. A smaller wedding may take place in the pillared King Mansion, an example of refined Classical Revival Elegance that recalls the Antebellum South
