About

This magnificent Palladio-style, 11 bedroom, 9 bath MANSION, built in 1920, on more than 4.5 beautifully landscaped, park-like acres -- the only privately-owned estate in the City of White Plains honored by listings on the National and NY State Registers of Historic Places, in the lifetime of the owners, still in occupancy -- a triple honor for the City -- opened to the public as a BED & BREAKFAST in 1993, offering unique Old-World hospitality for a quick getaway or an extended stay. A lovely circular drive, sweeping lawns, gorgeous grounds and gardens welcome your arrival. In the summer, breakfast al fresco, weather permitting, or spend lazy days in our hammock or lounge chairs with a good book. In the winter, warm by the fireplace in our spacious reception room, maybe sipping Viennese coffee, a glass of sherry or a hot toddy! Conveniently located on the southernmost border of White Plains and Scarsdale, in one of the oldest and most beautiful neighborhoods of the City, only 35 minutes to NYC by Metro North Express train and minutes to the downtown hub of White Plains. Less than 15 minutes from Westchester Airport. Rates include free parking, continental breakfast, complimentary hi-speed, wireless internet access, and cable TV. All rooms are antique furnished, filled with fascinating curios and collections from the owners' travels abroad. Perfect for business travellers, special occasion family reunion visitors, especially to celebrants at nearby houses of worship, as well as for long-term stays by business and professionals or four day a week commuters. The Soundview Manor Bed & Breakfast experience also makes "The Perfect Gift" for all occasions.

Splendid Hospitality at a Historic Site, with a Fascinating Host!

5 on December 03, 2013

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!


Wunderschön Haus, Wunderschön Zeit!

We will never forget our charming room, comfortable bed, delectable breakfast and accommodating hospitality. Came from Germany for a week's stay. Can't wait to come back - with our three children!!!


Our perfect stay - a wonderful B&B

The home is beautiful and the hospitality couldn't be better! We are looking forward to staying with you again very soon. Thank you so much.


Serene and elegant, a perfect respite!

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!


WHAT A JOY!

4.8 on November 03, 2013

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
