Today we visited some lovely houses and ate gorgeous meals and blah blah blah you get the point. Here’s the photos!
We started at Wilderstein, a charming non-profit run almost entirely by volunteers. Their devotion to the house was palpable and the collection was expertly maintained.
We carried on to a private home nearby called Rokeby, built in 1811.
In the afternoon we visited Edgewater, another private home cared for by Dick Jenrette and his wonderful staff. Completed in 1825, the Greek Revival home boasts immaculately restored interiors, a huge collection of Duncan Phyfe furniture, and some of the hardiest climbing hydrangea I have ever laid eyes on.
Tonight is a free night in Rhinebeck. Any suggestions?
