The Grounds and Gardens

Enter through just one of the many artistic gates and arbors and discover the magic and the peace of the garden. Sit or stroll while you unwind and enjoy the graceful shapes and forms of the arches, stones paths and trees. Bird watch from your favorite bench or simply close your eyes and soak in the sounds of nature. Stroll under the romantic vine covered arbors, that are a favorite spot for the song birds to perch. We are nestled in a meadow setting with artistic arbors and acres of lovely trees, flowers and beautiful garden areas to stroll or sit on our benches and enjoy the birds and their song.

There are 2 separate patio areas. Our newest is a covered area with tons of charm. Strings of Edison lights, attractive and comfortable seating.  The original and smaller patio is an adorable spot under the Magnolia and Forest Pansy trees surrounded with beauty and serenity. And more outdoor seating scattered through out the gardens.  Relax on a bench in the flower gardens and watch the birds flitting from limb to limb and the dragonflies landing on the ornamental grasses. If you’re lucky, enjoy the splendor of visits by the Bald Eagles or Hawks souring overhead or perhaps a Humming Bird showing off his flying skills. Later in the year listen to the rustle of the giant ornamental grasses and take in the brilliant fall colors.  This quiet, serene atmosphere allows you to unwind and re-create in an enchanting getaway.
