Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Washington Irving's Sunnyside House on a Sunday in Mid-August. It is a smallish but lovely house set on acres of ground next to the Hudson River. We had a great tour guide (in mid-1800’s period dress) for our house tour. The house is bigger inside than it appears from outside and has many of Irving’s original furnishings, as it was in the Irving family until 1945 when it became a museum. Although the grounds definitely need sprucing up, the house itself appeared to be in very nice shape. Irving led an interesting life and was much more than just the famous Legend of Sleepy Hollow author. We combined this tour with a separate tour of the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, just a few miles away. They complemented each other nicely. We have visited many “Gilded Age” mansions of the rich and famous and this house that predates that era put a new perspective on what it meant to be rich in the 1840s and 1850s for us. Of course, YMMV as we enjoy all aspects of American history.

As a young boy, Washington Irving wandered the woods and was entranced by a stone cottage on the Hudson River. Later in life, with money in his pocket from his successful writing career, he was able to purchase it. He added details to the cottage (and an addition) based on his extensive travels. It is a charming house, with wisteria and ivy that Irving planted still there. It has some very cute details, especially the Parisian inspired guest room. Cosy but not ostentatious. The setting is bucolic - right on the Hudson, which would have been far busier in those days. The only thing marring the lovely house and setting is the train tracks that separate house from river - something that was done in Irving's day when Vanderbilt put in train tracks going into New York. A costumed tour guide takes you around. Unfortunately it was hard for all of us to be in the small viewing areas at the same time - it would be better if the tours were smaller. Also, FYI the house is closed Mon - Thursday. We were not aware but were lucky enough to visit on a Friday.

I traveled to Sleepy Hollow as I have always loved the story. Being that I am an author myself and having just come from Salem and visiting the House Of Seven Gables and Nathaniel Hawthorne home I was very excited to visit the home of Washington Irving and learn more about him. Sadly, those that run the tours have deemed it to be a weekend only thing. I have to start back home to be back to work and can't extend it, therefore I miss out and am disappointed and that is putting it mildly. That and unlike Hawthorne's House of Seven Gables where you could get photos and walk around on the outside, Irvings Estate is locked down like Fort Knox. So, no chance there either. And being I don't plan on coming back this way again I get to miss out. So, those who run the estate and do the tours wake up! Not everyone can come on a weekend but guess you weren't thinking about that one were you! Again, disappointed in this and in the town in general. Was expecting a lot more.

This house was not special and would have hardly been worth the trip had not our guide been so informative. "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" was not Irvings only book. He was a prolific writer, but most known for his legend story.
The time to visit is during the halloween season because of the town wide activities.

Having visited Sunnyside as a child 50 plus years ago, I had clear and fond memories. What I found here was a sadly neglected house and yard that disappointed and upset me. It would have taken very little effort to clean up stray garbage, plant a few flowers or bushes around the house, clean debris from the pond and keep that large plastic garbage can away from the front door.

There were adequate people in period costume to show you the house and the gentleman in the living room made a real effort but some were only so, so. There was a lot more detail in what I had been told as a child such as how and why Irving made extensive use of the day bed in his study. There is also a woeful lack of connection to the author’s history (presumption that people are familiar with it and it was apparent people in our group were not). The house also badly needed to be freshened up from dusting and vacuuming to more significant things.

I had also hoped to get a decent copy of one of two of his books from the gift shop for my grandchildren. There were none on offer. The selection was small type, densely printed, cheap paperback with no illustrations.

There are opportunities missed at every turn.

This little fairy tale house is the home of author Washington Irving and his family. The house itself was once a small stone cottage that the author expanded to be his weekend home and then his permanent home after he moved up from New York City.

The house and grounds still contain family artifacts and the barn and ice house are still in good shape and can be seen. The house's furnishings are family heirlooms that were bought by the Rockefeller family and brought back to the house. The tour consists of seeing the downstairs social public areas and the upstairs living quarters. It is not the biggest house in the neighborhood but it still is impressive.

The views of the Hudson are amazing!

Came here as part of a tour. Plenty to do especially for a family. There was a wonderful storyteller offering the Legend of Sleepy Hallow. Washington Irving’s home was surprisingly small, but the guide did an excellent job telling us about Irving, his family, the house, and the Legend. The gift shop has plenty of things to remember your trip by.

Although you had to buy timed tickets we were still able to get sone and go in. The grounds had pic opportunities for kids and games outside for them to play. Small lovely house with beautiful grounds. Children’s crafts to do at ticket entrance. Dress up and take photos for adults. Nice gift shop. Sold snacks . Enjoyed the tour and the scenery

We were tentative about visiting because of some review....but so glad we did! The tour is 50 minutes and our docent was Hal, one of the best tour leaders we have been with. His knowledge of the architecture of the house, history, and Irving's life was remarkable and helped us enjoy the visit. The video at the start is well done, informative. The gift shop offers a nice variety of books and gifts. One surprise, if you pay at the entrance i is $2 more per person that if you order tickets on line. We didnt now this but would have paid at the entrance anyway not wanting to commit to a timed entrance. We were staying more than an hour away and unfamiliar with the 's roads. The visit stimulated more interest in Irving's life, a truly exceptional one. I plan to read it biography next. I do recommend reading Rip van Wikle and Legend of Sleepy Hollow prior the visit.
