The award-winning Glen Cove Mansion is situated on 55 secluded landscaped acres on Long Island’s famed and historic Gold Coast, just 30 minutes from New York City. A stunning reminder of Long Island’s architectural and cultural heritage, the Mansion has maintained the tradition of gracious hospitality put forth by its original owners. The spacious Georgian-style mansion features stunning vistas of Long Island Sound and was once part of a prestigious collection of gracious country estates, later becoming one of the nation’s first dedicated conference center hotels. Today, the hotel offers luxurious accommodations, magnificent views of the terraces, private rooms, as well as vast outdoor reception areas overlooking the mansion’s Gilded Age gardens. For truly sophisticated, fairytale weddings in Long Island, Glen Cove Mansion absolutely has it all.
Set in peaceful, pastoral surroundings, the brick Georgian mansion resembles a classic English country house. A bubbling fountain and trimmed hedges frame the majestic building, inspiring awe at first glance. Entering the stately two-story portico entrance, visitors are greeted by an elegant, baronial double staircase, imported paneling and antique fixtures that impart a feeling of being enveloped in a wonderful bygone era. Out on the lawn, couples can meet on the lawn with the mansion as the backdrop for an idyllic wedding ceremony. The lush setting only adds to the romantic atmosphere of the ceremony! An evening reception can continue outdoors under a billowing tent, but many couples choose to welcome their guests into the mansion for an elegant and unique celebration. The ballroom is dressed richly, yet in neutral tones for a chic, refined look. Broken up by pillars, wide windows line the curving walls, and a large, shimmering chandelier sets the tone for a one-of-a-kind Long Island wedding reception!
