AAA Editor Notes
Rosen House at Caramoor is off I-684 exit 6, just e. on SR 35, then 1.8 mi. s. on SR 22 to 149 Girdle Ridge Rd. The historic house is one of only five in the country whose original owners collected entire rooms, usually from European estates, to create their homes. Walter and Lucie Rosen built the Mediterranean-style house 1929-39 and filled it with Eastern, Medieval and Renaissance art and artifacts. The home sits on 100 acres with elaborate gardens. Classical, jazz, opera and folk music concerts take place in the Rosen House music room and in the gardens.
Guided tours are available. Picnicking is permitted. Time: Allow 1 hour minimum.
