Finding Medieval Majesty on the Hudson in Tarrytown, New York
The Castle on the Hudson is very much as it sounds—an imposing stone citadel fit for a noble, directly on that giant blue life-giving river snaking its way down towards New York City. But far from medieval kitsch, the manor-turned-hotel-turned-historic-landmark combines regal elegance with a level of modern comfort and luxury that makes it an ideal romantic weekend escape. For guests, this means in-suite wood-burning fireplaces, romantic turret alcoves, and grand, sweeping views stretching all the way down the Hudson to the Manhattan skyline. A weekend of wandering the 11-acre, arboretum-like hilltop estate and five-star dining is just 25 miles north of the city.
