About

Incredible. A must see place anywhere especially in the Hamptons. Amazing pieces of art from Buckmister Fuller, De Koenig, Yoko Ono and other world class artists. Great landscaping with beautiful flowers and plants.

This is my third time here in the past year and always amazed by this special place.

Sixteen acres of incredible horticulture and sculptures. The reserve is a remarkable experience. Wear comfortable shoes, bring a bottle of water, and give yourself time to absorb this experience. If you are in the Hamptons this is far better than window shopping in any town.

Went on a Monday in May - escaped from reality, and flowers are in Full Bloom! Birds are singing and artsy deck chairs everywhere to lounge on the greens and take it sight and sounds in. Jack Larsen was on the grounds and gave wife a compliment on her dress - made her day!

No public place should ever be closed off completely for an event- wedding or whatever. We went on the only day the reserve would be open during our stay, and made a point of keeping that afternoon free. We arrived and were summarily told to move out of our parking space for one of the wedding guests. Simply put, we felt insulted.

Dear Mr. Rchard PB B, I'm sorry you had a bad experience while trying to visit LongHouse. The grounds were indeed closed for a special event and we do try very hard to get the word out so that no one is disappointed. Our website home page, Visit and Calendar pages all listed the closure as did all of our social media. We hope that you will visit us again if you are ever in the area. If you were not given guest passes by the valet, we are happy to send some to you. Just email us at joi@longhouse.org Sincerely, Joi J Perle LongHouse Reserve

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 leave a 3 star giving the benefit of the doubt that has we gotten in it would have been nice, $20 to get in did seem steep but we don't know for sure since we couldn't get in.

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 left so disappointed that we took the drive here and actually paid money to enter this place. All we got out of it were areas of different plants and flowers and occasional statues. This art is not our taste at all and it wasn't even well manicured, as there were weeds and no real beauty or charm. We just didn't get what they were trying to demonstrate here. There is no history at all, in fact it's more modern than anything else...again not our taste. Extremely disappointed. The volunteer who took our money upon entering didn't even offer any information on this when we asked her...she simply said to hit the bong and start your Zen moment. This by far was the biggest attraction disappointment we've EVER experienced anywhere.

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 varied as Willem DeKooning and Eric Fischl. There are many historical museums in East Hampton and we hope that you were able to visit them during your stay. Sincerely Matko Tomicic Executive Director

It's a retreat of sheer beauty…plants and art together…what a better combination. At this time of year there are over a million daffodils in bloom…seriously! Go and visit. You will not believe that you have missed this very special piece of heaven!

This was a total surprise as I didn't know what to expect. A friend of mine took me there and we've spent so many hours enjoying this beautiful place. I would say it is a must-see when visiting the Hamptons. Imagine walking through a beautiful garden and passing by charmingly scattered art installations. It felt like I was Alice in Wonderland.

I was somewhat hesitant about going as this is not really my idea for a day trip. But I took the suggestion and went with my friend. It was just the most relaxing and enjoyable place to visit. A hidden gem in East Hampton. I can only imagine what it's like in full bloom. The grounds are kept but still hold their rustic surroundings. Very interesting sculptures and artwork. Young and old will have plenty of memories!!
I will bring next summers guests and family there as once is not enough. A must see during the change of seasons.

This is a great sculpture garden located in a neighborhood of East Hampton. We spent 2 hours walking the paths between glorious trees and beautiful sculptures. The layout was well designed by the owner and founder of this estate. For anyone interested in spending an inspiring time outdoors this is a place not to be missed. Every season should add new beauty to the experience.
