How about an afternoon tea in Westchester??

I'm seeking a place to bring a group for a very british afternoon tea.. hopefully in or around central/lower westchester. There used to be a small tea house in Peekskill, I think it was called Kathryn's Tea House, but I"m not sure if its still there..
Does anyone have some suggestions? I"m looking for the whole mini sandwiches, tea, scones, clotted cream and sweets thing - for a sunday afternoon.
Sound like you're really talking about afternoon tea, rather than high tea, which is more like a supper--with the emphasis on hearty and savory rather than fancy and dainty. You might want to check the Thayer Hotel at West Point; it's out of the area you're considering but not too far away. They were doing afternoon tea on weekends at one point, but I'm not sure it's still going on there.
ahhh ok thanks for the clarification, JRBlack.. Then what I'm really looking for is afternoon tea....

It's still there in Peekskill. I've never been in, but I noticed it the other day when I drove by. According to this article, it's not open on Sunday. --But the article gives some other ideas. Good luck.
