This is truly a unique place. A large property open to the public on a limited basis; it is well worth a visit. Sculpture is interspersed among the well planned gardens. The donor lives on the propert... read more »
Although this 16 acre property was purchased by Jack Larsen in the 1970's and opened to the public in the 1990's, we only just learned about it. We were delighted to find a peaceful oasis (after the t... read more »
I was not expecting much when my wife insisted we spend a beautiful summer afternoon at the LongHouse Reserve. I figured it would be disappointing compared to Storm King. Well, I was wrong. I was most... read more »

We brought a small but mighty posse of children, ages 4, 6, 8- and they loved it. There's a game of picture clues to hunt for sculpture all over the garden. We saw everything and it was delightful for the little ones.
Beautiful, pristine grounds - the maintenance is immaculate. I have some wonderful photos I took there. The the people who meet you as you come in (two women, when I went) are very friendly and courteous, and they don't mind if you take photos. Some very interesting, unusual, and clever sculptures and arrangements. I'll have to go back and reshoot after my next camera upgrade.

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 inspiring. There were countless different forms of seating. The group was privileged to be allowed inside the main house to see the unusual collection of fabrics, furniture and ceramics - the house's architecture was inspired by the sustainable Imperial Temple in Ise, Japan. Don't miss this gem in East Hampton.
We spent several beautiful, soul replenishing hours wandering this artful, tranquil garden that has been nourished by love and attention over decades. A perfect respite after the harrowing drive out to the tip of Long Island. There was a perfect "reverse fountain" that reminded us of the memorial park for 9/ll, it predates the memorial site by years, but with out without the sorrow. In fact in the stillness, with the mix of vibrant green, I felt as if I could tap the life forces of the flowering trees, shrubs, and ornamental grasses as they grew that afternoon.
A great place to relax and take interesting pictures
