We visited the Vanderbilt mansion (although apparently their nieces and newphews referred to it as a "cottage") and were really captured by the interior--rooms, decorations and relative simplicity of how the other half lives.

Beautiful view of the Hudson. The people who work here are very nice and knowledgeable. I would recommend going after the flowerbeds have bloomed. I went in March and could only imagine how impressive they must look in the spring. The gardens were obviously empty...More

Could we use our NP Senior Passes for any of the sites in this area?

We were part of a group so did not use our NP Senior Pass, but I believe the pass is good at every site in the NP program. Other than at Zion, we have been able to use the pass at every site.
The address listed is WRONG. That is for The Roosevelt mansion. Made my girlfriend and I stressed and late. Plus had to drive through Poughkeepsie which is not pleasant. You need to check basic facts. I didn't have reason to doubt the address as it was provided on a site about The Vanderbilt Mansion.

Did you miss those big blue signs that point direct you to "Vanderbilt estate" ? Big arrows? Sorry you were so stressed but you might try say, Google Maps?
Is it possible to do the FDR Museum, the ValKill, and the Vanderbilt Mansion tour in one day?

Yeah but would be tight. If you just visited the homes yes, but might be a stretch if you plan to go to FDR museum and the grounds of the properties.
