About the property

Lots of Bedrooms, a Huge Kitchen and River Views in Tarrytown, Close to NY Cit

Beautiful views of the Hudson River and new Tappan Zee Bridge from almost every room of this Tarrytown, New York Victorian. Tarrytown is a historic village on the eastern bank of the Hudson River, just 35 minutes by train north of New York City. The downtown shopping district is just down the hill from our house, and is full of funky shops and restaurants, from fast-casual to fine dining to farm-to-table. We are just .8 mile from the train station, which has an express train to New York City's Grand Central Terminal. Or, take the train north to Cold Spring, Peekskill, Beacon, for an adventure in the Hudson Highlands.

Enjoy the river views in this charming Victorian-era shingle style home that overlooks the Tappan Zee Bridge (and the new bridge) and the glittering Hudson River. At night, the windows twinkle with the lights from the bridge and the village, as well as Nyack across the river. Sunsets are lovely, especially from the porches, but really you have a view of the river from almost every room in the house. The gourmet kitchen is big, equipped with a large six-burner gas stove and oven, cool marble countertops for rolling out pastry or putting your guests to work, and everything you need to cook. Have some friends over and make dinner together; enjoy river views while you cook. There's an additional refrigerator in the downstairs apartment.

Three bathrooms are new this year; the kitchen is brand new as well. Bedrooms are large and comfortable with Tempurpedic mattresses and, if you don't like those, Sealy soft mattresses elsewhere.

The house is the perfect alternative to a New York City hotel. You can walk to everything in Tarrytown, or take a scenic, 35-minute train ride along the Hudson River to Grand Central in New York City. There's a large dining room for your Thanksgiving dinner, and plenty of room to sleep comfortably. Several porches (large and small) mean you can escape the dinner preparations and enjoy a glass of wine at sunset. A small apartment with its own separate porch overlooks the river and bridge as well.

Located three blocks from the center of town, the house is wheelchair accessible from the street, with a ground-floor powder room. Plenty of restaurants, parks, bike trails and even two kayak launches riverside. There are also two lakes with walking trails less than a quarter-mile from the house. Several historic sites are within walking distance (including the Rockefeller estate, Kykuit, and Lynhurst. Washington Irving's Sunnyside is a short drive away, in Irvington)

All in all, we are very walkable, relaxing, and a great place to visit!

*Please note! We have two cats who will be boarded somewhere else while you stay here -- but you should know, in case you have allergies to pets. We have three bedrooms that are kept cat-free at all times, and the lower apartment level is kept cat-free.

PLEASE NOTE: Destructive storm events that are widespread and take out power, internet, cable and the telephone service are considered "Acts of God" and as such are beyond our control. We do NOT offer refunds for travelers who experience these events, though we will work with VRBO to secure "Stranded Traveller Care" (usually in the form of alternative accommodation). For this reason, it is suggested that you have traveller's insurance, just in case!

About Suzy Allman

I'm an avid hiker and traveller, and a professional sports photographer. I love to settle in on the porch with a book, or make dinner with a fire going, or work in the office with that view of the bridge. I absolutely love hosting and having guests, so if there's something you think I can improve on, I'd love to hear about it! Creative ideas especially appreciated. :0)

Suzy Allman purchased this house in 2014

Why Suzy Allman chose Tarrytown

I'll always call Tarrytown "home", because it's beautiful, convenient, friendly. This house, overlooking the river and the valley, the little village with its train sounds and tugboat blasts, just takes it all in. The location is just perfect: a walk into town, the Music Hall or the train station, but also a walk to the Tarrytown Lakes or Hudson River, the bike path, the Riverwalk and the Old Croton Aqueduct Trail. You won't feel like you're stuck in the middle of suburbia here, and while we're in a neighborhood, you'll feel complete privacy.

What makes this house unique

The river, the sunset, the town below made us fall in love with this house. It's an old home (1889) with generous rooms, but everything is fully functional, clean and updated in the bathrooms and kitchen. And although it's a Victorian, you won't feel closed off in separate rooms; the house has an easy "open plan" that works for families gathering at the end of the day for a dinner or conversation. The kitchen is central to everything, located between the large porch and the living and dining rooms, and steps from where you'll park the car to bring in the groceries.

Great!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying here for our family reunion. The house was very large and charming and we especially enjoyed the views from the beautiful (and well stocked) kitchen and the porch, which both overlooked the Hudson. An easy 5 minute walk downtown for shopping and a farmer's market on Saturday. Two minor things to be aware of: 1) there are no drapes on some bedroom windows, and 2) the air conditioner unit makes a noise when it shuts off. But overall, this was a fantastic place to stay. Highly recommended and we hope to stay there again. Thanks.

Great home for extended family trip

  • 5 of 5

Great home with plenty of privacy for each of our 10 guests as well as indoor and outdoor gathering space. Inviting kitchen and patio and living areas made for a welcome retreat to relax in following the days activities.

Excellent location that is quiet, has a wonderful view and walking distance to shops and restaurants as well as easy access to highways and the commuter train line to NYC.

The hosts were very responsive and left clear instructions around the home on everything from restaurants nearby to working the cable television.

As advertised....and more!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this house was perfect for our mini-family reunion. The online pictures accurately depict the house as it is - beautiful modern kitchen that was very well-equipped for cooking, updated bathrooms that were immaculate, great living space and fabulous views of the Hudson. Even the beds and their mattresses got rave reviews. The location was perfect, close to major highways and the train station. Most of all, the owners' thoughtfulness came through with a very thorough set of directions that covered everything from how to handle the recycling to a list of local restaurants (with comments!), as well as having fresh flowers to welcome us. All in all, a wonderful home for a few days. My daughter called it her "spirit" house!

Plenty of room and lots to love

  • 5 of 5

We had three families stay in this home and had a great time. It was a quick downhill walk into town for dining, and you can easily access the train to Grand Central. The views of the bridge were great, and this house had everything we needed. The porch off the kitchen was awesome. There is no main floor bedroom, so keep that in mind if you have issues getting up/down stairs. I am really pleased with our stay and highly recommend this place. Suzy was great to work with, too!
