The Long Garden is the serpentine garden that stretches for 450 ft. along the entry drive.
The Chef’s Garden is at the east end of the Main Lodge and is known for its textures and scents.
The Sunnypines Garden is in front of Sunnypines Cottage and features a huge, old juniper tree.
The Wilderneath Garden is our oldest garden, originally planted in 1915 and features a white marble walk and very old trees. Its original purpose was to grow flowers for cutting and to grow vegetables served in the dining room. Please enjoy the gardens.
