Beautiful garden, free and open to the public. We are a state certified nursery with daylilys, water plants and natives. We also have a large selection of yard art. There is a mature childrens maze on site. Wading in creek allowed with water shoes and parental supervision. Wildflower trail along back creek path with bloom march thru may. The Lily Barn makes a great place for weddings and family reunions, and picnics. We hosted Hops for Hope May 1, 2015.

We found this garden 5 years ago and decided to visit again this trip since we were within 100 miles. It is set on a beautiful 108 acres with multiple garden areas. Beautiful venue for a wedding or outdoor party. Just love this place. So different from where we live in San Diego. The blackberry lilies were blooming both times... More

What a spot for a wedding! The barn is so picturesque and the Lilies beyond beautiful. The wildflower garden is great for pictures.

I actually found the Lily Barn here on tripadvisor when planning our vacation. A very nice back road drive to arrive at this beauty of an area. We enjoyed strolling with our fur baby through the gardens. So beautiful. Not for kids. But, couples should certainly take this lovely walk.

The Lily Barn is a great place to go anytime of year but the best time is in June when most all the lilies are in bloom. They have a greenhouse with plants you can buy and take with you. I usually have to go two or three times a year. No cost and take your camera.

Great experience to visit this rustic barn for a wedding. The food was catered by Lily's cafe and was delicious. It was great to be in the countryside with flowers blooming in April and good clean mountain air on the pleasant side of the smokies!

We stopped here on the way home to stretch our legs. They were having a wedding planned for early afternoon and the area was limited as to what we could see. Beautiful horses up the road from The Lily Barn.

Drive out on a little backroad from Townsend and you will find this old barn in an idyllic setting with pathways, flowers blooming, lots of lilies of course. I recommend going in springtime or early summer when most everything is blooming. We didn't purchase any bulbs, but we enjoyed the setting most of all. Easy to get to, lots to... More
