James William Beekman House, also known as "The Cliffs," is a historic home located at Oyster Bay in Nassau County, New York. It was designed by noted English architect Henry G. Harrison in 1863 and built for New York Hospital vice-president James William Beekman (1815-1877). It is a two story rectangular wood frame dwelling with a steeply sloped, cross gable roof in the Gothic Revival style. It features hipped roof dormers, a relatively simple one story verandah, and is situated on a flat plateau atop a rocky outcropping. Also on the property are a superintendent's cottage, stable, carriage house, brick greenhouse, potting house, and the Spring Lake archaeological site.
It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.
