Enjoy a stroll through this exceptional and beautiful example of an American garden
Tucked on a bluff overlooking Lake Champlain, these gardens were the life-long passion and work of their creator, Lila Webb, who reinvented and expanded them from 1898 until her death in 1936. Today, after extensive restoration, they stand as an exceptional and beautiful example of an American garden, open to the public to stroll through and enjoy.
The Flower Gardens are accessible via:
- Our Walking Trails
- With an Accessibility Pass
- Through seasonal guided tours (See Our Calendar).
Note: The Flower Gardens at the Inn are terraced and involve stairs.
