Gold coast mansion with castle-like former stables and Tudor mansion connected to estate with tours. Beautiful vistas of Long Island sound, Sea Cliff and Hempstead Harbor both from bluffs along wooded trails that run all along the expansive property and from grand balcony of the original estate house. Private ice pond on estate ringed with trails and filled with all... More

A hidden gem here in Port Washington. You can stroll the paths, tour the mansion, or just sit in a beautiful spot and have a picnic. Never too crowded (don't invade it!). Overall a nice place to spend a few hours.

At the entrance to Sands Point Preserve, I paid $10 to park my car and asked the woman at the gate about taking a tour. My husband and I paid $10 each for the 12:00pm guided tour of Falaise Mansion. We were told to wait at the bus stop near Castle Gould at 11:55am for the bus to Falaise. As... More

I came by car on a warm September weekday. The Preserve is not hard to find, but look for signs that direct you to "Sands Point Museums." As schools were in session, I found the grounds very sparsely attended. The hiking trails are not too long or strenuous. Neither are they too well marked, but the place is not so... More

Living on the South Shore of Suffolk County on Long Island ...we always were aware of the mansions of the "Gold Coast" but never visited 'up there'. A free Sunday and a 'why not' attitude had us going to Sands Point Preserve and we are so glad we went. From the moment you step out of your vehicle and view... More

I think it's worth the drive up to see this beautiful old estate home right on the water. It's at the end of a peninsula jutting out into the sound. I kind of think the parking fee should be a little lower than $10.00, but it is stil a bargain as you can walk around for a bit and see... More

My family and I ventured about 30 minutes to Long Island for what turned out to be a fabulous day. Sands Point Preseve seemlessly combined activities for young children, teens, adults, and senior citizens. We enjoyed exercising at the various stations along the fitness trail and witnessed a captivating view of the Long Island Sound from the cliff overlook. Passing... More
