During a crisis point in my life recently, I somehow found myself at the entrance of Hemingbough. There, peace, natural beauty, quiet, and the kindest staff helped me begin the healing process. I can't thank them enough for their many kindnesses! I stopped by again yesterday to picnic with a friend and to enjoy the peacocks' and guineas' frolicking. Having... More

This place is nearly impossible to describe... the natural beauty surrounds structures, buildings, a gazebo and even an amphitheater all co-existing in beautiful harmony. For photographers, it's a must see in late March, early April when the azaleas explode in fantastic colors and surround the reflecting pond with the fountain... it's amazing. The peacocks that wander freely on the grounds... More

Beautiful gardens and grounds unlike any attraction in LA. You would think you're somewhere in the middle of Tennessee.

This place is amazing, a natural theater setting for outdoor theatrics, seetings for weddings and reception facilities. Unique and romantic atmosphere.

Hemingbough is a place to get away from the hectic life of city living. Quiet, and serene over looking the lake while walking the grounds. Concerts are scheduled there at different times of the year, as well as special occasions ( wedding receptions, birthday parties, etc. ) Places to rent for the week, or weekend available. Great place to go... More

After initial signage off main road, buildings were not labeled and signage was minimal. After passing several buildings, there begin to be signage for Guest House. No map or directions to room sent in advance so we kept stopping at unmanned buildings until we found others in our wedding party. In the room there was no reference for who to... More

My husband and I spent the weekend at the Guesthouse on this beautiful property. The room was beautiful-spotless and well appointed. The high ceilings, gorgeous draperies and beautiful furnishings made me feel like I was in a century-old Plantation Home. Many thanks to the management for a lovely stay! We will definitely be back!!!!!
