Long Hill Estate in Beverly, Massachusetts
Location Feature: Long Hill Estate!
Long Hill Estate in Beverly, Massachusetts is our most versatile location all season long. We can visit with multiple families in one day and never repeat a single shot! There is a new spot to explore around every corner, and even we find something unique every time we visit! Long Hill is perfect for all families, especially those with younger children who love to play. We are so excited to share this location with everyone!
When they first arrive, a lot of people say, “I didn’t even know this was here!” Long Hill feels like a peaceful world of its own, and each section of the garden is secluded enough to feel like we have the place to ourselves! Accessible, easy walking trails lead you through the different areas of the grounds for families on foot, and a paved road is available for families with strollers or wheelchairs.
At the center of the gardens is the beautiful brick estate. The white porch is usually decked out with flowers, and the pillars are perfect for peek-a-boo! This is our go-to spot for families with active kids because everything we need is close by within sight.
The best part about Long Hill is that there are blooms from Spring through Fall. We swear there are flowers to match any outfit in any season! And the second-best part: every kid is promised a peak into the frog pond at the end of their shoot. On second thought, maybe that’s the best part!
Originally, the home was the beloved residence of the Sedgwick family from 1916 to 1979. During that time, the gardens bloomed into the natural oasis it is today at the green thumbs of Mabel Sedgwick and, later, Marjorie Russell Sedgwick. Today, The Trustees of Reservations maintains their horticultural mission to nurture these gardens for all to enjoy.
