“The moment we walked into the Garden House, we knew we had found something unique. Everything in the garden, from the fountain to the flowers, felt special. We could not be happier.”

— Jessica and Rob

Marble steps lead from the terrace to a spacious bricked walled garden, which boasts a reflecting pool and fountain. Arbors and flower beds with stunning seasonal plantings line the surrounding pathways. Guests may also enjoy the bluestone terrace, which is tented during the warmer months.
