  • A place to meander, perhaps with a dog or two.
  • A place to teach a son or grandchild to fish.
  • A place to cross country ski or snowshoe when it’s a winter wonderland.
  • A place to walk under an arbor of flowering crab apple trees and to take time to smell the fragrance that envelops you.
  • A place just to sit and embrace the silence.
  • A place that has over 200 trees and shrubs, an herb garden with 13 beds showing off a variety of herbs not seen anywhere else in this region known as The Enchanted Mountains.
  • A place that has a replica of a 500 year old Japanese Stone Garden, a perennial flower garden, two nature study halls ideal for weddings and other celebrations.
  • A place for strolling; stroll around Lake Nipponica and see how many huge grass eating carp are sunning themselves or swimming just below the surface of the lake.
  • A place for all seasons.
  • A place for you to discover.
  • A place open year round, every day from dawn to dusk, and it costs not a single penny!
