Welcome to A Private Estate, where you can experience 19th century elegance for the 21st century. We are a landmarked National Register Property and an original Livingston Estate that has remain relatively unchanged since it was first developed in 1856.

We are located 2 hours north of New York City via the Taconic Parkway or Amtrak to Rhinecliff, NY. We are also 3 and 1/2 hours due west of Boston, MA, and 4 hours north of Philadelphia, Pa. We are in the heart of the Hudson Valley just north of Bard College with its Frank Gehry designed Performing Art Center and Tivoli, NY with its many restaurants and just south of Hudson, NY with its  antique shops, restaurants and small performance spaces. Surrounding us are many Estates that are open to the public and your guests for touring such as Clermont Historic site, the seat of the Livingston Family and Olana, home of the famous artist Frederick Church who immortalized our Hudson River Sunsets.

We offer both a Riverside and Barn Complex experience for one price.
