We really enjoyed the tour of the house a lot. It was so interesting. Our tourguide provided us with amazing facts and a lot of history. The setting is amazing right above the Hudson River. Thus was history at its best.

FDR's home is preserved almost precisely to his death. We learned so much about FDR, his family, his illness, and his work on this tour. Don't forget to see the gardens and hit the gift shop in the visitors center on the way out!

We were fortunate to see the house in Christmas splendor this year. We have gone hiking on the trail numerous times but this year we took a tour and it was inspiring and educational. This is a place you could go over and over.

This was not our first visit but each time I am in awe of all that transpired here. Like many “old money” places, the house is grand but not opulent. Although the house is actually called Springwood, it has always been called Hyde Park by...More

Fortunately we had an excellent guide on the tour of the FDR home who really provided us with a great amount of information. The house itself is interesting but not spectacular in any way. Of course, it is the history associated with the house that...More

It was a cold day and the walk to the FDR home from the visitor center was more lengthy than I expected (on cane). In our tour of the FDR home, there was a medium sized tour group and even though the tour was wonderful,...More
