This lovely garden overlooking a pond with distant views of the ocean is a place of peace and beauty year round. However, it is without equal in daffodil season: there are thousands of them, in mixed beds, in single variety beds, under trees, nestled around some of the huge anchors Mr. Spohr collected...gorgeous.

Spohr Gardens began their plantngs some 50 + years ago so the plantings are mature. The Spohr's collected many items, bells from old churches, anchors form long gone ships, mill stones and so forth and they are all displayed in the gardens.The water view gardens are spectacular as is the landview gardens, dont miss the waterviews.No Charge, open from 10AM...

We really enjoyed our visit to Spohr Gardens. The Rhododendrons and Azeleas were out and so it was delightful. However, we missed out on all the Daffodils, there are thousands, as they had just finished but it did not detract from the beauty and tranquility of the place. They are not massive gardens, there are some on both sides of... More

Very nice relaxing visit with friends. Small beautiful gardens with massive anchors. We saw beautiful flowers and tiny little turtles bathing in the sun.

These gardens are a delight - filled with anchors and other ship memorabilia scattered along the water's edge. Very tranquil with many varieties of trees and shrubs and, while we were there, tulips and daffodils. A lovely spot.

Lovely spot to take in spring by the sea. Meandering trails. Flowering trees. And daffodils, of course.

Spohr Gardens is a private garden that is open to the public. Best time to visit is in the spring during daffodil season; they have plenty. Situated on an inlet with old ships anchors lining the shore, this is a peaceful piece of heaven, a bit out of the way, on your way to Woods Hole from Falmouth. Easily found... More

My husband and I loved this garden/park. We went in the summer, it was a gorgeous place to walk around. There were gorgeous flowering bushes, lush greenery, beautifully and landscaped paths. it is kind of hidden off the beaten path. It is on the small side, not really for extended walking but, it is worth checking out!

This local secret is great for a relaxing side trip. It is best to visit during the spring to enjoy all the flowers.

Such a nice spot to wander through, commune with nature, and enjoy the peacefulness. Even though nothing was in bloom, most of the plants, shrubbery, and trees were still green. It is self-guided and free of charge, although a donation box is provided during the tourist season. The Rhododendron plants are magnificent and probably a sight to behold in the... More
