The historic HeartsEase Mansion is a stately home overlooking the Hudson River, meticulously renovated with gorgeous, spacious rooms, wide, comfortable balconies, peaceful gardens, and fountains.
The newly renovated HeartsEase Mansion offers exceptional interior and exterior spaces. Formal and naturalistic landscapes are successfully integrated through carefully planned restoration, and the property is ideally suited for wedding receptions, team building events, meetings, photo shoots, and movie locations, as is the exterior and interior spaces of the house.
“The house was built in 1891 and was named HeartsEase. (The home contains many heart symbols; engraved in the fireplace tiles, the balusters along the stairway, and in the built-in benches of the inglenook in the living room). In the early 1920s, Hilda Worthington Smith, the daughter of the original owner Mr. Smith, fulfilled a lifelong dream of turning the home into the “Hudson Shore Labor School.” The school taught newly arriving female immigrants various trades, as well as English. Eleanor Roosevelt, a board member, was instrumental in empowering these woman to go out and make a new life of meaning in the new land of America.”
