  4. 4. • The nice thing about the Cary Institute is that it is up to you the traveler on how much you want to do. But no matter what you do, you need to do it between April 1 and October 31 – as the Institute closes for the winter.• During its open season, from 8:30am until 7pm, Bradley Reifler recommends hikes with trail masters who will engage you as you make your way through the lovely woods – or you can meander through forests, ponds, and sloping hills on your own or with your family and friends. You can take science classes, listen to lectures and seminars and even participate in projects – all with the goal of teaching visitors about ecology and “investigating the complex interactions that govern the natural world.”• Or just sit back under the blue skies, open a picnic lunch and listen to the sounds of the birds overhead.
  5. 5. Bradley Reifler Visits the Innisfree Gardens• If you are looking for a day trip or weekend getaway, surrounded themselves by nature, the Innisfree Gardens offers a serenely magical hold on those lucky enough to explore its fairy-tale like grounds. Like a picture in a dream – the fact that these remarkable gardens are real is what makes the Innisfree Gardens so spectacular. As you explore the sloping green hills surrounded by the glacial and iridescent40-acre Tyrrell Lake, you can’t help be taken in by its beauty, says Brad Reifler. The lake itself is filled from water pumped from a hillside reservoir. A complex system of underground pipes takes this water to various parts of the garden to be used not only for irrigation for plant life but for the garden’s lovely streams and waterfalls.
  6. 6. • The gardens are home to a number of flora and fauna. Depending on the time of year, visitors will be treated to a variety of lush flowers. For June visitors, they will delight in the climbing Hydrangea and Peonies. Come in July through September and you will see the legendary Lotus. In addition to the wondrous plant life, the gardens also take care to offer visitors fantastical views of both the lakes and the gardens as places for quiet contemplation, notes Brad Reifler. You can gaze at The Point, A Terrace Bed, as well as modern-day Water Sculpture to enhance the natural beauty of the gardens.• In the early 1930s, the Innisfree Gardens were once private and belonged to Walter and Marion Beck. The garden was then put into the stewardship of landscape architect Lester Collins, and eventually opened the garden to the public.

  9. 9. Bradley Reifler Visits the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome Museum & Air Shows• The spectacular Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome Museum & Air Shows is a treat for adults and children alike, says Brad Reifler, Millbrook resident and fan of early aviation history. Every Sunday the Old Rhinebeck dusts off its beautiful old planes and provides visitors with a stunning airshow in flying machines that look like they are made of toothpicks but soar with grace and power that needs to be seen to be believed.• Located in Rhinebeck, New York, the Aerodrome museum provides one of the “largest collections of early airplanes in the world – many of which regularly take to the air in all their glory…” says museum officials. In addition to vintage airplanes, the museum also houses old automobiles, early engines, bicycles and “memorabilia from 1900-1935.”
  10. 10. • The museum was founded by Cole Palen (who died in 1993 at the age of 68), master flyer, pilot and air showman. Palen was also known to be a restorer of old airplanes long thought gone. In the 1950s, Palen purchased a few W.W.I aircraft after the Roosevelt Field in New York was closed. Palen then had the hard job of moving his new planes (SPAD XIII, Avro 504K, Curtiss Jenny, Standard J-l, Aeromarine 39B and Sopwith Snipe) to upstate New York. According to museum officials, “It took nine 200-mile round trips to move the aircraft back to the Palen family home where they were stored in abandoned chicken coops.”• Palen bought the land the museum now stands on in the late 1950s and by 1960, Palen gave his first airshow – starring himself as the pilot. Since then Palen’s spirit lives on in the museum which continues to treatnew generations to the wondrous world of vintage aviation.
  11. 11. Brad Reifler Visits the Wethersfield Estate• The Wethersfield Estate offers its guests many opportunities to leisurely stroll through its lovely grounds to explore the garden, the museum, the dairy farm and the Carriage House.• The history of the Wethersfield Estate stretches back to the 1930s when conservationist Chauncey D. Stillman (1907 – 1989), a man with incredible vision that was clearly ahead of his time, purchased the two adjacent Dutchess County dairy farms of 600 acres in 1937 and continued to purchase the surrounding properties until he died in 1989. The farm had by then grown to 1,200 acres and has a ground home, gardens, carriage house and of course the working farm.
  12. 12. • The Wethersfield gardens were also the brainchild of the astute and nature-loving Still man who was inspired by the Italian Renaissance and its use of water, sculpture, topiary and terraces in his initial designs, explains Brad Reifler. As the gardens expanded over the years, Still man (working handin hand with renowned architect Evelyn N. Pohler) added in elements from English gardening and classical styles, according to officials at the Wethersfield estate. Visitors will come across many surprises in addition to a variety of flora and fauna including an intimate Inner Garden as well as dolphin-shaped fountains that spout into a long narrow canal. The Arborvitae Allee with a Naid Fountain, the Peacock Walk and the Belevdarer are some of the wondrous sites visitors will encounter, according to Wethersfield Estate experts.
  13. 13. Bradley Reifler Visits the Wing’s Castle• Wing’s Castle needs to be seen to be believed (and it has been featured in Extreme Homeson the HGTV channel as well as numerous fashion shoots according to its website) for its somewhat haunting yet quaint architecture. The building of the castle began over 40 years ago by artists Peter and Toni Ann Wing back after Peter came back from Vietnam. The castle has become one of the largest and open-ended art projects in the US for the Wings and sometimes guests will have a chance to glance at Peter who still works on his beloved castle almost daily.• Think fairy tale castle, European castle and everything about a castle in your Gestalt and that is sort of what you will see. Visitors will be treated the Wing Castle’s twisty, windy, stony gray architecture – complete with pointy turrets and twisty walk-ways.
  14. 14. • The Wing’s Castle also offers a number of overnight accommodations including a bed and breakfast experience (which just opened in 2011) in a European-like setting. Stone floors, heavy wooden doors and stain glass windows open up to glorious views of the Hudson River. In addition, there is also the Tower Room that has its own private bath and includes a continental breakfast plus a tour of the Wing’s Castle.• For those who wish to say they have stayed in a “cottage” can do so in the Wing’s Castle Cottage – across the road from the castle. The cottage is complete with living rooms and all the amenities of a luxurious home plus the “fairy tale” like experience the décor provides. Think Hansel and Gretel minus the candy and the evil witch.
