We had our daughters wedding at the gardens. The site is beautiful however the venue is a very difficult place to choose for any event . There is no infra structure so ALL of your needs have to be brought to the site. Generators and bathrooms and water and waste removal. The cost of renting the garden is extremely high... More

On a girlfriends getaway we decided to explore Innisfree. What a beautiful place. So picturesque and peaceful we agreed to return again to explore here during the different seasons to see what other secrets this garden holds.

The gardens were so beautiful and the fall foliage reflecting off of the pond was breathtaking. This is a very calming place to visit.

Self-guided, suitable for picnics or just strolling around. Gardens are immaculate and very interesting sections.

Central to the gardens is a pond, replete with waterlilies. Garden paths surround the pond and many more traverse the hillsides. The rock formations and extensive plantings are a study of balance and beauty, as are the water features and promontories. This is a delight and well worth a visit (plan on 90minutes). Please note that the terrain is not... More

While we lived in NYC, my inlaws moved to Millbrook from Oklahoma. Her father, recently retired, was offered, and accepted, a job to develop an arboretum nearby. After seven or eight years, they move back to their previous home in Tulsa. We were visiting the garden when the house still existed. There was much controversy over the destruction of the... More

A great place to spend several hours enjoying a beautiful day. Great place to photograph, paint, draw, write, meditate or enjoy a quiet picnic. The meditative beauty transcends its physical presence. Wear comfortable walking shoes. For the less adventurous, there are benches overlooking the pond which do not require any stamina.

Lovely landscape design, not much in the way of flowers so if you are into that it's not for you. The care in the design of rock gardens, textures and water features is spectacular - you will immediately feel zen as you walk through the grounds. A visually beautiful and grounding experience.

a beautiful garden, where one can spend hours wandering the grounds, walking around the lake, and picnicking. Make sure to bring your camera. One can expect to see picturesque gardens in this little gem of a place.

I wish this place was closer to home, what a great place for a day trip. Very peaceful place, you can walk around and explore which will take you around 3-4 hours or just pick one of many beautiful spots and just sit and relax.
