Welcome to Historic Site Soundview Manor

The only home on a privately-owned estate known to be listed on the National and State Registers of Historic Places, in the lifetime of the owner, still in occupancy!

Described by former Mayor as "one of the crown jewels of the City of White Plains."


After more than 20 wonderful years, most regretfully . . .

Historic Soundview Manor has ceased operation of its Bed & Breakfast for the indefinite future.

Thanks for the happy memories of enjoyable visits from far and wide!!!

Located in the old estate section of White Plains, New York, you'll be delighted by this rare gem in a secluded neighborhood, yet only minutes away from downtown White Plains, Scarsdale and the Hudson River. Soundview Manor was built in 1920 as part of a grand estate, and became a Bed and Breakfast in 1993, offering a haven for business and pleasure travelers, overnight, weekend and extended stay guests as well as four-night a week commuters.

You don't have to take our word for it. Read the guestbook comments of those who have stayed with us from all over the world. See also, the guestbook comments of then First Lady, Hillary R. Clinton, now Secretary of State, and daughter Chelsea, on the occasion of their house-hunting visit to Soundview Manor on June 28, 1999, when still in the White House:

"There Really Was A Sound View"

Our Soundview Avenue street name, historically Sound View Avenue, is now more understandable: it is the view from our Penthouse when the house was new, the trees were young, and on a clear day you could see the sailboats going by on Long Island Sound.
