Teatown is ten square miles of unparalleled natural beauty only thirty-five miles from Manhattan. Country lanes, woodlands and marshlands criss-crossed with stone fences, meadows filled with wildflowers make Teatown an unforgettable destination. Teatown's jewel is its namesake, Teatown Lake Reservation, an education and nature center with over eight hundred and thirty acres of pristine landscape. From its famous Spring Plant Sale to guided tours of Wildflower Island, this is a popular spot for all hikers and nature lovers.
Teatown's fascinating history goes back to the Revolutionary War when local women rioted to gain access to tea being stored in the area by black market grocers from New York City. The nearby villages of Chappaqua, Yorktown, Croton-on-Hudson and Ossining offer extensive shopping and restaurant options. Some of Westchester's most notable and unique homes can be found on Teatown's meandering lanes with whimsical names like Journey's End Road.
Teatown is an easy drive into New York City with a nearby entrance to the Taconic Parkway. Commuter trains are available at Croton-on-Hudson, a ten minute drive from much of Teatown, with a forty-eight minute express service.
