Fodor's Review

A tree-lined drive leads to this 1810 English-style mansion on 42 country acres. The mansion served as an upstate hideaway for playwright-actor Judson Morgan and was later the home of industrialist and Johnson administration official Howard Samuels. Three rooms have French doors that open onto balconies. The master suite has French inlaid-wood antiques, a king-size bed, a double hot tub, and floor-to-ceiling windows with window seats. Common areas include a wicker-furnished Victorian porch with views of the gardens.
