A bully good historic attraction, not to be missed: the home of Theodore Roosevelt from 1902 to 1906, considered the "Summer White House," a beautiful 23-room Victorian mansion estate that also includes a 37-acre National Environmental Study Area of forest, tidal salt marsh and bay beach.

Sagamore Hill is an old favorite of my family. We live about half an hour away. We last came days before the house was closed for its multi year renovation. Back then, it look worn out, even showing cracked pain in numerous layers. Now it...More

Stopped by in August 2017 for a walk around the grounds. Really enjoyed the interpretative plaques. The walk down the old carriage road leads to a beautiful photo spot to capture the house. Just a note that it was a Sunday and tours were totally...More

We hadn't been to Sagamore Hill in a number of years. It has been completely renovated. The tours are wonderful, and the grounds are lovely to walk around. There is a nice picnic area if you want to bring lunch and enjoy the views.

This 4-star is more of a 4.5-star review... overall, our experience here was wonderful. The slight ding is just a warning to book and research ahead-- some of the tours sell out or run on limited days/hours. But I was glad I went. I'd been...More

I've always wanted to visit Sagamore Hill. I've read several books about TR and his home is as much a part of him as any part. The grounds are magnificent and more extensive than I realized. His home is simply incredible filled with his conquests...More

Beware of the limited hours. The house itself is open only certain days but the grounds can be always be viewed. Even though the house was closed we were able to walk around the outside and get good pictures. We arrived at 3:20 only to...More

We had a great day touring the Sagamore grounds, house, and museum. While there is no Teddy Roosevelt library, it's probably because most of his possessions are displayed in his home and in the museum. You are free to roam the grounds and museum, but...More

Some great history here on Long Island. You need tickets to visit the house but not the grounds. Get them on line or they may be sold out. There is even a hiking path that is .7 miles long.

I ordered my tickets online in advance. I recommend you do this as each tour is limited to just a few people due to small areas.
