Experience the magic of the holidays in a place seemingly frozen in time, transporting you and your family to the rich past of this Gold Coast estate on the North Shore of Long Island. Planting Fields will be opening the doors of the historic Coe estate to the public this coming December to welcome you into their home, decked out in the holiday fashion. Stay cozy out of the cold next to a roaring fireplace, listening to live jazz with a big mug of cocoa, as you and your family make yourself at home in a 1920’s Tudor revival, decorated to fill your heart with the holiday spirit.

  • Planting Fields, the former estate of insurance magnate William Robertson Coe Standard Oil heiress Mai Rogers Coe and is one of the few remaining Gold Coast estates on Long Island’s North Shore that retains its original 409 acres as well as its historic buildings and landscape. Rolling lawns, formal gardens, hiking trails and specimen plantings, as well as the Camellia Greenhouse and the Main Greenhouse, with its unique seasonal displays, are a treat for visitors year round. Coe Hall contains many original pieces and furnishings once belonging to the Coe family, including the restored Louis XVI Reception Room. The mostly Elizabethan style interior of the Tudor Revival mansion is a showcase of artistry and craftsmanship in its wood and stone carvings, ironwork, 13th – 19th century stained glass windows and original commissioned murals by American artists Robert H. Chanler and Everett Shinn.
