Surreybrooke's mission is to offer visitors an exciting time as they experience the extensive gardens and historical outbuildings. The winding paths lead to outrageously colorful borders overflowing with perennials, native shrubs, and vines that climb the artful pergolas. Trees of merit are dotted throughout the landscape and earthen ponds. Country magazine had this to say about Surreybrooke "Seemingly suspended in time, Surreybrooke's outbuildings and lovingly tended gardens create a romantic place a painter would want to paint." Guests will have a special opportunity to visit the private gardens of Surreybrooke and the Civil War-era house, which are not normally open to the public.
Experts in the Garden! Staff members will lead informative discussions on the plantings as well as the history of the gardens, outbuildings, and the Civil War-era house. Special attention will be given to the unique collection of plants.
