  • Gorgeous grounds with outstanding exhibits when the temperatures permit. This past summer thehe Seward Johnson figures found in Renoir paintings was a crowd-pleaser and rightfully so. Enough space so ...  more »

  • I come here every year around Christmas time. The grounds and house are so beautiful especially when there's snow on the ground. The house is always decorated for Christmas and they serve cookies and hot apple cider. They also always have someone dressed as santa sitting upstairs in a big chair next to a decorated tree - perfect photo op and there is NEVER a line (like at the mall). Everyone who's come with me really enjoys it including my 3 year old!
  • Historical gardens and manor. The scenery and variety of flowers are amazing. I try to come once a year when the weather is nice. Some people bring lawn chairs with them and relax in the gardens, others walk around and read about the different plant species. The grounds are large for NY and well kept.
  • Very nice peaceful gardens, and an interesting historical house as well. Perfect for a weekend afternoon. There is a pleasant cafeteria in a corner of the gardens with good food. Spend time both inside the house and outside and read up on the history before visiting if possible.
  • A fully restored Long Island Gold Cost Mansion. Amazing gardens everywhere. Rich in all kinds of history.
  • What great day (last Saturday) at the mansion and gardens. The Jon S Seward exhibit was very enjoyable. Beyond that...the place is a wonderful day trip. The mansion tour was extremely interesting, giving great insight to the daily lives of this gold coast family. The ground and the gardens are in excellent condition, maintained by the family trust,. An overall great day trip.
