    Four of us took my Mother to Klehm for a guided tour by the wonderful docent Sue. It was a chilly, breezy day, highly unusual for August, and we had the tree garden, as Sue called it, almost to oursel...  more »

    Really beautiful gardens & paths. They've added a huge permanent tent area, which would be a perfect spot for a wedding reception, company party, or family reunion.  more »

    Went to a wedding at this location. The chicken and pork dishes they served we're excellent however the vegetables dishes were served cold. Pre-dinner apitizer they served were not refilled to accommodate even half the guests. During meal the server's did not refill water carafes or clear the empty glasses and dishes from the tables timely and the temperature inside the venue varied dramatically from one end of the room to the other. Apparently something with the thermostats inside. Men's washroom had broken and non operational sink handle leaving only one sink operational.

    THIS PLACE SUCKS!!! unless you like plants then this is the place for you. Thought we were going to see some pretty cool flowers and insects here. But NOPE!!! I cant believe I paid $12 dollars to walk around this crappy place. We shoulda left when we didnt see any cars in the parking lot. No wonder no one was here. This place is boring!!! Save your money and go to a forest preserve instead. Unlike this place its actually free to look at plants there!

    If you like the outdoors this place is definitely where you want to come and the price is good too. Just wear some comfortable shoes and you'll enjoy it too.

    We attended a concert there (Corky Siegel and Randy Sebine) and it was lovely. The grounds were beautiful and enjoyable to walk around. The setting for an outside concert was great. We will do this again! Khelm is a jewel in the area. I have come here for other events- garden fair, dog walking, etc. and have never been disappointed. The new tent looks great. I hope I get invited to a wedding there soon!
