AAA Editor Notes
Yaddo, just w. of I-87 Northway exit 14 on Union Ave., is the nucleus of a working community for visual artists, writers, filmmakers, choreographers and composers. Although the 400-acre Yaddo Estate is private, the gardens are open to visitors. The rose garden is in peak bloom from the third week in June through July and again from mid- to late August; plants in the rock garden bloom from mid-June to mid-September.
Guided garden tours start near the large fountain at the entrance to the gardens.
Guided tours are available.
