“Awesome if the flowers are in bloom”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

We had been to Stevens Coolidge once in the early spring, and thought it was nice but not special. We went back in early October, though, and the flowers being in bloom made all the difference. The gardens were just gorgeous and, like the Trustees' Long Hill property (in Beverly), you're allowed to pick your own flowers for a small fee. We couldn't believe we were the only ones there and, given the lack of a guide, you feel like you own the place rather than like a tourist. A real hidden gem on the north shore.

“A Good Spring Attraction”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

This property consists of an older restored dwelling and a large yard with gardens and a trail. It is a pleasant visit in the spring and summer, and we've seen a couple of painters taking advantage of the location. I agree with earlier comments about the place being peaceful and pleasant, but it is not on the same level as a few other garden locations in the Boston area. Quiet adventure is correct.

“Nice, but don't go out of your way for this place.”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

We went in early July and there were a few gardens with flowers in bloom. It took about 20 minutes to walk (slowly) and see everything.
