These are acres of plantings, sculpture, streams, fountains, and outdoor furniture to wander through and delight the senses. For the handicaped you can call ahead and set up a visit in which your party is driven by a volunteer on a kind of golg cart and get a marvelous description of the place. I advise you to look up the... More

If you are at all interested in gardens or art, make this a stop. We had time constraints but were still able to cover everything in an hour, you could easily take two. Some very fascinating sculptures placed in a myriad of inventive garden settings. Check for opening days and hours as they change seasonally.

I wanted to very much review this as my wife and I traveled all the way there from Westhampton Beach yesterday only to find that it was closed. Be cognizant of their hours which seem weird to me, not open on weekends! It looked pretty nice from the gate entrance way but other than that we can'y comment so I'll... More

A visit to Longhouse Reserve was the highlight of our trip to Sag Harbor. The interplay between wonderful contemporary sculpture and 16 acres of beautiful gardens is a feast for the eyes and rejuvenating to the spirit. We were also lucky enough to be there during an exhibit of outdoor furniture, each of which was a fascinating example of contemporary... More

I was proud to be the escort of a group of Wellesley alumnae, Class of 1966, on July 31. The combination of imaginative landscaping, startling sculptures and endlessly changing varieties of perennial plantings added up to a great setting for renewing friendships and making new friends. Among the sculptures, the story behind Yoko Ono's colors-be-damned life-size chess set was particularly... More

I saw this attraction on my Trip Advisor app and it was also recommended by the Innkeeper at the B&B we were staying after I stated we love history. Well, when we entered this place after paying $20, our jaws dropped at the amazement of how this could possibly be rated so high. After 20 minutes, my husband and I... More

Dear Danielle, We are sorry that you were disappointed in the recommendation you received about LongHouse Reserve. We are not a historical site, nor do we bill ourselves as such. We are an outdoor art museum with 16 acres of grounds filled with many varieties of trees, plants and flowers that intersect with numerous works of art, by artists as... More

A must do for every visitor to East Hampton. Even in mid summer the gardens were cool and with fabulous sculptures, interesting planting schemes and avant garde outdoor furniture there was something for everyone to admire!

It was an amazing experience - the art, the lush green gardens and the love! The grounds are beautifully cultivated with artwork/sculptures throughout. The Chihuly installation is beautiful. The pools are amazing. A true oasis for art and garden lovers alike.

Longhouse reserve is a series of beautiful gardens, made in a unique style integrating sculptures and exhibits. It looks nothing like your typical English garden. It's hard to describe, but it feels like, although the gardens are manmade, that the plants are growing freeform. It doesn't feel contrived. We drove 1h30 to get there after 3 days in Manhattan and... More
