A majestic paradise with sweeping river views. Kykuit was home to 4 generations of the Rockefeller family, beginning with the philanthropist John D. Rockefeller , founder of Standard oil. Kykuit, a historic site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
Historically significant with beautiful vistas across the Hudson River. Rockefeller's responsible for the beautiful views from our area across the Hudson due to early preservation of land.

“In spring of 2004, Blue Hill at Stone Barns opened within the Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture in Pocantico Hills, New York. The Barbers helped create the philosophical and practical framework for Stone Barns Center, a working four-season farm and educational center just 30 miles north of New York City, and continue to help guide it in its mission to create a consciousness about the effect of everyday food choices. Sourcing from the surrounding fields and pasture, as well as other local farms, Blue Hill at Stone Barns highlights the abundance of the Hudson Valley. There are no menus at Blue Hill at Stone Barns. Instead, guests are offered a multi-taste feast featuring the best offerings from the field and market.”
