“Totally worth the drive!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

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 this was definitely the highlight of our trip.

The staff were delightful and actually made sure we hit some other touristic spots.

So much beauty, so much to see. I would recommend going back often as the seasons change, new gardens are added and the art exhibits are always amazing.

The property of this house which belongs to a former fabric designer from New York is one of the most amazing outdoor art exhibits. Truly a treasure.
