“Don't Miss This Hidden :"Gem"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

The gardens alone are worth the trip,magnificent doesn't do them justice. Beauty everwhere you look!!
And then there are the antique autos, they too would be worth a trip to see them just by themselves.
Combine them both and you have a can't miss outing for everyone !
Couples, Families, Singles, there is something for everyone.
Don't Miss This !!!

“Splendid gardens and remarkable collection museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

Even though it was raining, the gardens were splendid. Our little son loved the collection of old. A peaceful place. We could'nt eat at the restaurant so we can't tell about it. A nice gift shop with fine articles. You have to go to this place.

“Great few hours”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

A little more costly than expected but this is because our two teenage boys were classed as adults. Very well kept gardens and clean throughout with very nice staff. Take a walk off into the wooded area on one of the many trails, a lot cooler on a hot day like today and you can take in the scenery across the lake. We walked in from Sandwich, which added to the experience - just off Main Street up Grove Street only 20 minutes.

“National Trust in the USA!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

Thoroughly enjoyed a visit to this centre. The gardens are beautiful, shame we were a couple weeks to see the rhododendrons ( go in May) but there are plenty of other lovely plants to see. Enjoyed the Merry go round and also fasinated by the heritage cars, which were wonderfully presented. A great place to visit for about 3 ish hours, depending on weather and walking speed!
