OHEKA CASTLE regally stands on a manicured private estate in the heart of Long Island in New York. Influenced by the grandeur of years past, this family-owned castle graciously welcomes guests into a luxurious hotel with historic charm. Built by financier and philanthropist Otto Hermann Kahn in 1919, The New York Times declared it “the finest country estate in America,” and the chateau remains the second-largest private residence ever built in America. In 1984, the estate, then in a dilapidated state, was purchased by the current owner and underwent a painstaking restoration to bring the historic OHEKA CASTLE back to its original opulence.
