Arboretum Grounds Tours

Public and private outdoor tours of the Arboretum grounds in the Spring, Summer and Fall are available (weather permitting).  For private grounds tours (i.e. – Boy Scout Troops etc.), advanced notice for requests is necessary and the fee is $25.00 per group. But, if you want to take a tour on your own that's fine too!

House  Tours

Tours of the Manor House are scheduled seasonally and provide a guided look at the major living spaces of the Manor House, both upstairs and down.  All house tours are $10.00 per person.

Public House Tours are scheduled in advance to a limited number of people on a first come, first serve basis. Generally we have tours scheduled for the “Holiday Season” when the house is fully decorated, and the “Spring Season” before it gets too hot to spend time upstairs. But, once again if you want to tour the house on your own you can at least of the down stairs portion of the house.

The Hidden Oak Cafe is located inside the Manor House, offering a varied menu of freshly prepared foods including sandwiches, quiche, soups,  pies and other desserts. They also serve a “Victorian Tea” complete with finger sandwiches, scones, and fresh pots of tea and catering. All Victorian Tea reservations must be made at least 24 hours in advance to allow for preparation. The telephone number to contact the Cafe is 631-277-3895.

The lawn is perfect for taking in the sunshine and many people were sunning and working on their tan, plus there is a place to dock your boat, fish, or kayak!
