Former Castle Hotel

Oheka Castle was built almost a century ago by the financier and philanthropist Otto Hermann Kahn for an estimated cost of $11 million ($110 million in today’s currency). During the Gilded Age of the 1920s, Kahn used the 127-room estate as a summer home where he hosted lavish parties. Heads of state and Hollywood stars have been among the people invited. After the death of Otto Kahn in 1934, the estate changed hands several times. It used to serve as a retreat for New York sanitation workers and a government training school for Merchant Marine radio operators. In 1948, the Eastern Military Academy bought Oheka but the school went bankrupt 30 years later. In 1984, developer Gary Melius purchased Oheka and the surrounding 23 acres and began restoring the Castle to its original grandeur. Today, after $30 million spent in restoration, Oheka is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a member of Historic Hotels of America.

The story of the Castle begins shortly before the end of the 20th century, when General Howard Carroll, a well-respected newspaperman who used to work for The New York Times as the Washington D.C. correspondent, playwright and businessman, bought the land in order to build a home for his family. After General Carroll’s death in 1916, his widow and two children stayed at the Castle until 1940, when it was rented for a short period to a local school. In 1941, Emerson and Ruth Axe bought the Castle and 64 acres of land at the price of $45,000 and turned it into an investment counseling firm. In 1981, the town of Tarrytown designated τhe Castle a historic landmark, protecting the outside structure from any future alterations. Between 1994 and 1996 the Castle was transformed into a luxury hotel, whereas in early 2013, the Castle Hotel & Spa underwent a thorough renovation.
