What a wonderful place!

This is such a special place, it is such a shame that Paul has had such grief and will have to close this next year.

I felt like I found Fairyland. This sanctuary is truly amazing, as is the owner. Bring binoculars and your library voice. Everyone visiting was very respectful, which added to the serenity and ambience to the visit. If you need peace in your life, this is a must. PLEASE be quiet and courteous and patient. The walkway is a little rocky,... More

Only open in the summer....absolutely worth the trip. It's on the bluff overlooking Long Island Sound...the view alone is worth the trip but the hummingbirds make this a memorable experience. They will fly right up to you and hover around you. It's just awesome!

If you are interested in seeing a hummingbird sanctuary, one exists in Riverhead near the Lobster Roll restaurant. It's a great place to bring kids, or have a bit of serenity from a bluff overlooking the Sound. You should try to see this place this summer, because a few mega mansion landowners are suing to close the preserve. Unfortunately the... More

The website said to park in the parking lot on the main road. It was about a 1/2 mile walk on a dirt road to get to the Sanctuary. Then it was a trail in the woods that was nicely marked. Wear good shoes! For much more detailed information than I can provide here, for days and hours of operation... More

This was our 2nd visit to the sanctuary this afternoon and the hummingbird activity was simply incredible. Complete with lush gardens rich with salvia and trumpet vines to attract the birds, along with the glamorous views of Long Island Sound, this is one of the more exotic offerings on the Island. Add to it the wonderful explanations as to what... More

Worth the walk! Alot of patience is required if you want to see hummingbirds.The best viewing time is early in morning on weekdays. Opens at 9:30am. Parking is limited and as the place becomes more crowded, there is less chance of seeing the birds.

Love to go to see all the birds. It is so breathtaking you will be amazed. There is quite a walk from you car to get to sanctuary. But we'll worth the hike.
