Visiting Oheka Castle, one gets to see a beautiful location now used for the TV show Royal Pains, and other movies. The best part is hearing the story of Otto Herman Kahn and learning why he built it, and all the famous visitors that came to his parties. The Chaplin room is fascinating.
Tea and coffee are offered at the end of the tour.
The rooms are beautiful and luxurious.

Thank Eileen B

This is the second largest private home in the United States and it has a very interesting story behind it. It can be toured if you call ahead and can be there at the time of the tour which is around 11:00AM and if there is nothing else being done at the mansion that the tour would interfere with.The tour was informative and lasted a couple hours. We had lunch following and it was excellent and on the upscale side. You can have weddings etc. there or just stay like a hotel if rooms are available.

While staying 4 nights on Long Island we booked a tour here.
Oheka Castle is on par with the Newport RI mansions tours. But I enjoyed this one more.
It is a private residence, hotel, and function hall, and a movie set for the program Royal Pains as well as other shows. Because of the expense of the property, this is how the owner raises money to pay for the upkeep.

The tour was $25 which included self serve tea or coffee and cookies after the tour in the main ball room. We enjoyed that and opted for the tour and lunch additional $25 (plus tip and tax)

The tour guide was quite good. We learned about the history and saw many of the rooms which are now common space. Each room was quite elegant. Because the house fell into shambles none of the furnishing are original. The grounds are beautiful. After the tour, we were free to walk around the grounds or rooms to take more pictures. We was one hotel room. WoW.

Lunch was elegant. We could order any two courses. I chose jumbo shrimp wrapped in bacon and grilled. Fantastic. The filet minion sandwich was the best. It was so big I needed to bring half home. We dined in a small room overlooking the gardens. So beautiful. The service was top notch. A 5-Star
The Oheka owner of the castle came and greeted each table. He was so nice!!! Just a regular guy who loves what he does. He has spent 30 years restoring his home, rents out rooms, fancy weddings are held here as well as other functions.

I have been to many historical homes and I truly enjoyed the tour and elegant lunch.

Long Island! Gold Coast! Oheka ! Three names - one amazing celebration of your soul, whatever you do there - getting tour or dining... If you live in New York or around, if you are a guest in our great and huge city, Oheka must be on a must list. Many thanks to Otto Kahn, who built this unique castle, but even more thanks to the family which had revived the castle which was destroyed. And still working on it. We were lucky to have a tour with a super-professional guide Ms. Lora. Sorry, I could be wrong, because what she did was a great 1 hour show with history, drama and soul involved. If you plan to see Oxeka, make reservation for the tour with a lunch, - you will double your pleasure, because after you've received a big wave of a great mood a lunch in their stylish, well arranged restaurant is amazing koda for hours you spent in Oheka. Not only Ms. Lora ! Many thanks to Mr. Ernie Avallone, the real Master of bar and restaurant service, he added his own magic... Without him we (me and my wife) will never know what is Mozarella En Carrozza or Capellini Frutti. We were on a tour in a middle of May - the weather was perfect, and if you see my photo gallery you'll most probably catch the aura of this place and without any doubt 'll follow our idea.

You will learn so much about the castle, what it was, what it became and how Gary Melius brought it back to life and it's full slender.
