OHEKA bills itself as “Europe in America,” and indeed this magnificent Gold Coast Mansion, resting majestically on the highest point of Long Island, emanates the elegant refinement of a French chateaux. Coupled with world-class service and a rich history that is distinctly American, OHEKA has been celebrating the art of entertaining since 1919, when financier and patron of the arts, Otto Hermann Kahn, commissioned celebrated architects, Delano and Aldrich, to design his palatial country residence to accommodate Kahn’s fondness to host lavish parties.
Today, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Castle is open for historic mansion tours, luxurious weddings, and boasts 32 luxurious guestrooms and suites situated on the upper floors of the estate, where guests can sleep like royalty. Guests receive golf privileges on a private members-only course originally designed by renowned golf architect Seth Raynor and later redesigned by Robert Trent Jones. The newly opened OHEKA Bar & Restaurant offers patrons a unique culinary experience with beautiful views of the manicured Formal Gardens, designed by prominent landscape architects, The Olmsted Brothers.
