Just returned from very enjoyable trip to Mansions and Historic Sites along the Hudson River. Was forewarned about simplistic accommodations so that was no surprise. Rooms were clean and food was much better than I expected. Staying at the Warwick Center makes the cost more reasonable and you are not there much more than to sleep. While the bus trips to the various locations are a bit long, our bus for the first three days was very comfortable. Unfortunately, it developed air conditioning problems and the replacement for the last day was quite bumpy. The docents at each stop were excellent. The tour managers were warm and provided some local color narratives as we drove. There were evening programs each night if you chose to participate. The group members were congenial and everyone interacted easily, which makes all the difference. I would recommend the trip. Suggest you use the discussion feature to post a notice re: getting to and from the airport to the Warwick Center. The public transportation route sounds quite onerous and the limo service is very pricy unless you can work out a shared ride with someone.
