    Dramatically beautiful and impeccably staged conservatory. The rigors of design are rewarding with epic views all around . Look up, look up! Even the glass topped conservatory has flora and fauna

    Beautiful gardens... My favorite are the water lilies, orchids, butterfly plants, & pond gardens near the gazebo & castle tower. But watch out for lots of poison ivy near wooded paths (see photo).

    I wasn't really impressed by the tree houses, but the kids loved them. Main fountain display is closed until 2017. Conservatory was uniformly fantastic.
