tarrytown-house.JPG New Package Features Historic Hudson Valley's Newest Haunted Experience, Horseman's Hollo; Packages Start at Just $199 Tarrytown, NY - Are you afraid of the dark? This Halloween season, Tarrytown House Estate is partnering with Historic Hudson Valley to give guests a selection of "eerie" experiences. The 26-acre Estate hotel, managed by Destination Hotels & Resorts, is now offering "The Haunted Mansion," a package geared specifically towards adults, weekends from Friday, October 15, to Saturday, October 30, in addition to its fabulous "Blaze" Package which is available Friday, October 1 through Sunday, November 7.  The Haunted Mansion includes a uniquely spooky room in the King Mansion, a ghoulishly good breakfast for two in the Biddle Mansion, and two VIP tickets to the Horseman's Hollow at Historic Phillipsburg Manor. This brand new haunted experience takes the tale of the Legend of Sleepy Hollow to its darkest extremes as Phillipsburg Manor is transformed into a terrifying landscape ruled by vampires, witches, ghouls and ghosts - all serving the Headless Horseman himself! Horseman's Hollow is NOT suitable for small children or the faint of heart. The Haunted Mansion package starts at $279 per couple for the King Mansion, and $209 per couple for deluxe rooms. For those guests looking for a lighter Halloween experience, the Great Jack O' Lantern Blaze package is an alternative. Guests can take advantage of deluxe overnight accommodations, two tickets to the Blaze that features more than 4,000 individually hand-carved, illuminated jack o' lanterns at Van Cortlandt Manor in Croton-on-Hudson, and a full American breakfast for two. The Blaze Package starts at only $199 per night.* Bring the kids for an extra $35 per person. On October 10 and 31, kids and kids at heart can participate in a "cupcake decorating clinic" staffed by Tarrytown House Pastry Chef Stephanie Doerner, who appeared on multiple episodes of WE-TV's "Amazing Cakes". Chef Doerner will show guests simple cupcake decorating techniques and all guests will go home with their cupcakes to share with their families. Both Halloween packages are a great complement to the history of the Tarrytown House Estate - some even believe that the 170-year old King Mansion at the Tarrytown House is haunted!  (Guests staying there will find out!)
