Like walking through private grounds from a by-gone era (because you are). Only problem is you are often reminded through signage and security where you are not welcome.

Our son and daughter-in-law chose Yaddo Gardens for their wedding .. they were hoping the peonies would be in bloom but they were a bit late that summer. It was still beautiful and every path presented a lovely backdrop for pictures. There's a story behind the gardens; just enough "up keep" to make it pretty but not "manicured"; nice to visit on a summer day. You can hear the traffic on the Northway but it's not usually too bad.

This is an unusually unique place. Walk the gardens of the artist retreat that was The Trask family mansion a century ago.

The rose garden is spectacular and it smells as good as it looks. A delightful place for an afternoon stroll.
