There are two large outdoor garden spaces, a partially covered reception area and a guesthouse with rooms and event space. The outdoor season runs from April through October. From November to March, there is a guesthouse that is perfect for more intimate weddings or gatherings. The gardens are open for special occasions as well as public tours. Flowers are abundant year round, but guests looking to host a special event may prefer to choose spring when the property is at its finest. Late April is when the English bluebells, Lily of the Valley, hybrid lilacs, and peonies begin to bloom and form a masterpiece of sorts. The Sunken Garden Amphitheater plays host to a variety of shows and events throughout the year. Free parking is available on site.
Location + Surroundings
The grounds of the property offers stunning beauty for visiting guests. Trees, shrubs, and plants help define the space and the endless types of flowers provide a rainbow of color. An outdoor gazebo, shaped like a chapel, was constructed in 1997 and is a focal point of the property. This masterpiece features ten gothic arches and is topped with a bronze cupid. It is equipped with lights and music and has played host to many weddings and night-time concerts. The massive 232-foot garden nearby contains the estate's original American and English box-woods, roses, daylilies, and herbs, and can provide seating for 250 guests. The sunken garden, built in the grounds, is definitely the show stopper. Four semicircle retaining rock walls form the historic terraced garden that was the original site for weddings.
The white pine columns complete the sunken garden and give it a cathedral-like look. Getting to the property is easy, especially if coming in on Highway 81. Upon exiting the highway, a short drive will lead to Route 11 where this grandest property is located. Radford University and Virginia Tech are both within a few miles from the property. Blue Ridge Parkway, known as "America's Favorite Drive" is a nearby popular attraction consisting of 469 miles connecting The Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina to the Shenandoah National Park in Virginia.
