Day 2 - BOSCOBEL AND AREA SIGHTSEEING
Boscobel is one of the most beautiful estates in the Hudson River Valley. It was built between 1804 and 1908 originally as the dream house of Loyalists Elizabeth and States Dyckman. Eventually it fell into disrepair but with a generous support from Readers Digest co-founder Lila Wallace, they raised the funding to restore the Neoclassical mansion back to-and even beyond- its original grandeur. Today Boscobel’s interiors showcase
one of the finest collections of New York furniture from the Federal period including documented examples by Duncan Phyfe. The view from Boscobel of the Hudson River is awesome! Lunch included at this beautiful estate. This afternoon enjoy guided local sightseeing including Union Church of Pocanitco Hills with its stained glass windows by European masters including Marc Chagall and Henri Matisse, commissioned by the Rockefeller family. Return to our hotel to freshen-up before dinner at the Casaletto Restaurant. Meals: B,L,D
