HUNTINGTON, NEW YORK PROPERTY EST. 1919 • NATIONAL REGISTER OF HISTORIC PLACES OHEKA CASTLE regally stands on a manicured estate in the heart of Long Island. 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 the Gilded Age of the 1920s, the estate entertained Hollywood luminaries, esteemed heads-of-state, and distinguished royalty. Eventually repurposed and abandoned, it was developer Gary Melius who began a careful and painstaking restoration of the castle in 1984, bringing OHEKA CASTLE back to its original grandeur. A royal experience, guests are welcomed to this premier historic hotel with charming European luxury and hospitality. The estate has been the backdrop to many television and film productions, including the classic film, Citizen Kane, and the present day television series, Royal Pains.
