The Mansion at Glen Cove
In the 19th Century, Long Island’s North Shore – dubbed “The Gold Coast” – was playground to America’s wealthiest families. Here in Glen Cove, the brick
Georgian mansion then known as The Manor was a gem of the era, named one of the best 12 country houses in America by Country Life Magazine. Built in 1910
on the 55-acre estate of John and Ruth Pratt, it was designed by renowned architect Charles Adams Platt.
John Teele Pratt was an attorney and an executive with the Standard Oil Company. Ruth Baker Pratt was the first Republican Congresswoman to represent
New York City’s “Silk Stocking” district. After John’s death in 1927, Ruth and her family maintained the estate until her death in 1965.
Thanks to thoughtful conservation and sage additions, the Pratt home and estate
has evolved into one of the country’s premier hotels, wedding venues and
conference centers. The elegant ambiance lends itself naturally to weddings and social gatherings.
Former bedrooms are now fitted for contemporary team meetings; servant quarters became lounging areas. An expanded dining room can accommodate 250
guests for a formal dinner or gala party. And our relaxing SPA & Wellness area offers massages, spa treatments, a salt cave, saunas, a fitness center, and a glass enclosed indoor pool.
Movie and TV producers have also discovered The Mansion’s beautiful setting and filmed scenes here for “North by Northwest,” “Sabrina,” and “Where’s Poppa.”
John Pratt believed that there should be “no inharmonious note to throw the whole out of tune”. His mansion and gardens form an aesthetically well-balanced
country estate. The Mansion at Glen Cove is dedicated to preserving the property’s original charm and integrity while offering the amenities and services of a luxury hotel. Visitors are warmly greeted as they step back in time to a place of aristocratic heritage and the highest standards.
