  • If you have any interest in history, this will not disappoint, The site was recently restored and it is incredible. Amazing to think all this history right in Oyster Bay, so cool.  more »
  • I think we were lucky having visited on a cold January day. Although it was too cold to see the grounds, there weren't too many visitors and our tour guide waxed enthusiastic. We weren't rushed at all...  more »
  • We visited this past year with friends from Chicago. It was their first visit. The house tour is amazing, you must reserve your spot ahead of your visit. The last time I was here was 60 years ago, age...  more »

  • Get there around 9:45am to get a tour same day, or book online weeks in advance. The tour is great. Not worth going if you can't get in the house--and those are your only two options. Another comment: the various tour guides give very different tours, and some are more engaging that others. If you live on the island or find yourself back in the area, it is worth going a second time to hear what history is emphasized each time. I have gone three times because everyone who visits me asks to see it.
  • Great place to explore. Walking trails. Beach area on the bay. Full of history. Large open areas to just hang out and let the dogs or kids play.
  • A hero of mine lived here. I used to visit the beaches a few times a week. Its a lovely place for your self or friends and family. Tbe exhibits are small but dense and surprisingly interesting, give them some time and walk to the ocean after.
  • Beautifully maintained property. You feel as though you are in a private home. Joe, our guide, helped us imagine the Roosevelt family living here with his descriptions of their active lives. We also visited the museum on the edge of the property. Worth the trip.
  • History is alive and well at Sagamore Hill and it is well worth the visit. There is so much to see and do here that I would not suggest trying to squeeze in everything in an hour. First and foremost , if you want to see the inside of Roosevelt's home, you must get tickets ahead of time or get to Sagamore hill when it opens as there are a limited number of tickets for each session and they sell out quickly. It is important to note that 80% of the house is original, however, you can not take pictures inside the actual house. If you do not get tickets into the actual house, there are still plenty of other things to do on the site. There are several wonderful trails, some that lead to water as well as a museum and a few other structures that you can explore. For the Junior Rangers in the group there are several different booklets to complete. One booklet will earn them a badge, however completing three or more will also earn them a patch. There are plenty of restroom facilities on the site, however there is limited options for buying food. Tickets into the house come with a fee but the actual site is free. I did not expect to enjoy this location as much as we did. As avid NPS visitors, we try to see as many spots as possible. To be able to say you rocked in chairs on Roosevelt's porch is definitely something that we will treasure forever.
