This is a lovely old estate worth visiting any time of the year. It's easily accessed off Rte 22 and there is parking. The landscaping is comparable to the Arnold Aboretum in Boston, with mature hardwoods, pines, and perenials. There are some farm animals that are attractive to children. Each spring there is a terrific sale of garden plants, perennials,... More

Definitely a great place to wander around with a nice hiking path as well. Explore the gardens and the different elements of this estate. Also a great place to have a picnic!

A large estate turned into preservation land. A little unsettling getting there as you go down a driveway to a house. The house yard has flowers and flowering shrubs. There are small pools with coy and Lilly pads. I went on a warm day and bull frogs were enjoying the sun as well. After the house, there is a large... More

Nice trail through the woods. Wonderful preservation land. It's a very relaxing summer stroll through gardens and woods. Nothing to dislike.

This is a beautiful, historical estate surrounded by gardens. The gardens are the most scenic in the Spring, with flowering trees, tulips and daffodils. There are walking trails and dogs are allowed on leash. A gem of a place.

We love to visit, especially weekly in the spring to see the changing and amazing foliage. Well maintained and historic.

I've lived close to this place for a very long time and didn't even know it existed until I found it on TripAdvisor! Wonderful place to bring kids, take photos, or take a hike. Cut your own flowers in the fall, see the animals. Wonderfully serene place. I keep coming back now!

I walk up Long Hill often as I live around the corner from it. It is peaceful and lovely. It's not a "hike". It's a meander through gardens though there are a few short woodsy trails. This walk is for garden admirers. There is a marvelous giant beech tree. Lots of the plants are marked for your learning pleasure. There... More

Georgeous gardens. There is almost always something in bloom. There is a children's garden where they can dig, water, play and have fun safely. They have chickens. There are Guinea fowl and peacocks wandering free.The walking trails which are well marked but you do need to protect yourself from ticks. Parking on property. Chairs and benches are positioned around the... More
