  • Very nice place to walk around and relax. Good atmosphere for painting.
  • Beautiful gardens with many nice flowers to enjoy. The grounds are well maintained and the parking lot was ample.
  • Disappointed, all food and drinks were exhausted by 3:00 p.m. a gathering that was scheduled to last to 5:00 pm. Not worth the money spent.
  • Whst a stunning garden and house. Great spot for photos, special events. So pretty. The breeze blows and you smell the fragrance from the flowers. It'saxserene spot great for reading, picnics and just tsking a stroll. I was surprised when I saw the back of the house. All I am saying is columns+trees, go check it out for yourself. It's not a huge property but nice nonetheless. I will be going back next month.
  • Beautiful gardens and grounds! Great for a classy wedding. The mansion is beautiful too!
