We attended our good friends' wedding here and were just bewildered at how stunning and intricate the land was. Fantastic wedding, beautiful venue. Well done!

If you love gardens, gardening and architecture, you MUST visit! Your stroll will take you from small to large, exquisite gardens with statuary, ponds and other accents to enhance the views! There was even a hedge maze! Grab your camera and enjoy the scents, sights and sounds and try their goodies at their Tea Room!

I had a friend visiting who is an avid gardener. We took the tour offered by the owner. The grounds are beautiful, lots to see even a lovely maze. You will need walking shoes for the tour. I was there for a few hours.

I first visited Spindletree Gardens about five years ago and was amazed at the extent of the gardens (20 acres), the design and unusual plant material. Age and ill health of the owner has taken its toll on this former paradise. The gardens are so overgrown with weeds that it is difficult to find the good plants. As a passionate... More

The atmosphere was nice on the old porch and the food was delicious, however unfortunately since the service was so slow we were not able to tour the gardens. I would still recommend this place for a nice leisure lunch, but suggest you book yourself a good 2 hours for lunch.

Tom and Susan's home and property are a hidden gem. Tom provided a guided tour of the entire property that was both informative and really entertaining. The amount of work he's put into this property over the years is mind boggling, and so diverse. Ponds, rock gardens, rose gardens, an English garden, a cedar maze...even a croquet pavilion complete with... More

As other reviewers have noted, the gardens are varied and the work that has gone into them is tremendous. If you are a gardener, bring your camera and take notes during Tom's tour so that you can add something special to your garden that you admired in his. We stayed for high tea and were overwhelmed by the many delicious... More

We attended a wedding at Spindle Tree Gardens the first week of June.Not many signs giving directions along the way and our GPS would not recognize it. Asked in town for directions and drove right past the little tent card reading "Spindle Tree Gardens" Really could use a large permanent sign. I was expecting colourful flower gardens but was wowed... More

Travelled from Vancouver, B.C. to see this extraordinary garden that is a visual feast! The knowledge shared on tour is fantastic and you will be thrilled every step of the way. Children and adults alike will delight in the maze, and marvel at the curved greenhouse. The themes from Rose Garden to Herb Garden are endless.... After the tour, enjoy... More
