The sculptures, which are wonderfully executed and emotive, are aesthetically arranged in the garden and although it is not very large garden, one can easily spend a few hours there after seeing the sculptures, just reading or enjoying the tranquility.

You must visit this place if you need a quite retreat surrounded by beautiful lands and art. Stop, breathe, listen to the birds and the water.

Absolutely gorgeous in everyway (not withstanding the great weather we enjoyed for my son's late afternoon wedding) Ceremony under the arbor next to the stream...birds singing, light breeze, appetizers in the garden, dinner on the upper patio. Very helpful staff made the experience even nicer. Small, but adequate kitchen for caterers. Adjacent parking lot and great place for bride and wedding party to get ready. Lovely sculpture garden with winding paths. Some 'poison ivy' warning signs. Not a great place though for a wedding with toddlers as there were lots of 'falling off/in" spots!
