“LongHouse Reserve exemplifies living with art in all its forms. Founded by Jack Lenor Larsen, its collections,gardens, sculpture and programs, reflect world cultures and inspire a creative life.”(website Mr. Larsen, world renown textile designer, lives in the house in this magnificent 16 acre landscaped sculpture garden. There are both temporary and permanent exhibits in their own landscaped spaces. It a truly an impressive park. We were very happy to walk through the lush gardens admiring the art, plants and water features. A visitor can spend a lot of time here just meditating. It might be difficult navigating through the grounds because they are mostly grass, dirt and gravel. There is a map on the website and you can take a virtual tour.


There is one designated handicapped space in the gravel parking lot. It is a short walk to the open admissions  entrance. The gift shop as well as the multi stall handicapped accessible restrooms with a baby changing station are located right beyond the entrance. 


As always, we atDestination Accessible advise you to check a venue’s website, www.longhouse.org when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
