Oheka Castle    

Oheka Castle

Huntington, New York

Watch out, Jay Gatsby. Otto Kahn, the financier who built the Oheka Castle as his Long Island summer retreat during the Roaring Twenties, hosted parties so lavish, even Daisy would blush. Once the second-largest private residence in the US, Oheka Castle hit hard times after Kahn’s death. But a developer bought the property in 1984 and painstakingly restored it to its former Gilded Age glory -- turning what the New York Times once proclaimed as “the finest country estate in North America,” into an opulent boutique hotel with suites names like “Carnegie” and “Fairbanks.” You can almost see the partygoers doing the Charleston on its rolling green lawns.
