Westchester Hotel Package Invites Guests to Explore the Mysteries of Sleepy Hollow
Sleepy Hollow has had more than its fair share of fame, from blockbuster films to teen-friendly TV shows. Those who are curious about the real deal, however, should explore the town for themselves, and with Halloween just around the corner, there's no better time than the present.
The village, made most famous by Washington Irving's book "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," offers countless opportunities for enjoying its small-town charm, and the Renaissance Westchester Hotel is making it easy for visitors to experience its rich past without compromising on modern amenities.
With its Sleepy Hollow package, this Rye, NY hotel offers guests deluxe accommodations; a copy of Irving's famous book; a savory Hudson Valley apple crisp and hot apple cider for four, served in the hotel's Hive Living Room + Bar; a walking-trail map of the Old Croton Aqueduct Trail, where visitors can walk by Lyndhurst, a Gothic Revival country house beside the Hudson River in Tarrytown, and see sights including the High Bride, the Keeper's House, and the tunnel; and a private consultation with the hotel's resident Navigator, who can assist in finding local orchards for apple picking and for directions to Sleepy Hollow.
The area surrounding this hotel near Sleepy Hollow, NY is filled with fun activities for the entire family including leaf peeping; apple and pumpkin picking at area farms; cemetery tours; and visits to attractions including Sunnyside Manor (Irving's home), Phillipsburg Manor and Headless Horseman Bridge.
While the area might be steeped in history, the Renaissance Westchester Hotel offers a stay that caters to modern travelers. Set on 30 picturesque acres, the hotel underwent a $12 million renovation earlier this year and features stylish guest rooms, Hive Living Room + Bar, featuring award-winning chef Jean-Claude Lanchais, a fitness center, indoor pool and more than 20,000 square feet of meeting and event space.
