This grand house should be a museum and be kept for future generations. Came from Vermont to spend Thanksgiving Day weekend with my family in White Plains. I am so thankful that fate brought me here. I had such a marvelous time, enjoying the charm, comfort and beauty of this place!

Soundview Manor is one of the last "old-style" mansions in White Plains. Everything is provided - comfortable and amazing tranquility. Full breakfast provided. I am an early riser and made my own tea before formal breakfast!

Taking our daughter's recommendation, we had the joyous experience to be guests in this elegant historic mansion....a hidden jewel in White Plains! Pure delight, comfort, gracious hospitality, beauty, peaceful scenery and "sound" sleep best describe our all-too-short stay of four nights. We thank the innkeepers for preserving this historic property and opening it to the public. We look forward to future stays. Don and Judith Indiana, Kentucky and So. Hutchinson Is, FL
