Washington Irving wanted a romantic home along the river where he could relax and write. His choice was Sunnyside. Located right along the Hudson River, this bright little house was just what he wanted. There were wonderful views over the river from many of the rooms in the house and the veranda area was as peaceful a place as you could find.

Take a walk around the grounds, then take a guided tour through the house to see where this great writer found his inspiration.

Address: 3 W Sunnyside Ln. Irvington, NY 10533
Directions: Sunnyside is located on West Sunnyside Lane, off Route 9 in the village of Tarrytown.

    Thanks for the tip! I'm working on the article for our next member newsletter. The topic is literary homes of history to visit and I plan to include this. Would love to get the photo. Will contact you!
