Major Bowes Retreat is located right in the heart of Westchester county. We're close enough to metro New York, yet far enough away to make it feel like another world.
We're a 5 minute drive from the major transportation center at Croton Harmon, where you can hop aboard either a MetroNorth or an Amtrak train to take you just about anywhere you'd like to go! Or you could fly into nearby Westchester Airport from most parts of the country.
Places of interest nearby include: Teatown Lake Nature Preserve (www.teatown.org),
Croton Point Park (home to the Clearwater Concerts in June and "Eagle Fest" in the winter) (www.parks.Westchestergov. .com) Sleepy Hollow Cemetery (Washing Irving's favorite haunt), Lyndhurst Castle, West Point Academy, and Cortlandt Manor, home of the "Great Jack-o-Lantern Blaze" each Fall season.
